This restaurant was recommended by our hotel as we were going to an event at Villa Rufolo. We were not disappointed, the food was imaginative and very tasty. The staff were also friendly and attentive. The management has attention to detail too as all the staff were wearing soft soled shoes so there was no clicking on the terracotta flooring as they approached our table. They were instantly available but only when needed which is always a sign of quality trained staff.

I was tempted to give this restaurant 5 stars but on asking my wife how many it deserved, she replied "5 stars, there was nothing wrong with it". And herein lies the only reason for downgrading it to 4 stars (not simply to disagree with my wife!!!): Whilst there was nothing wrong with it, there was something in the ambiance that wasn't quite there. I can't think of anything in particular but you know it when a restaurant deserves the full 5 stars. Nevertheless, still highly recommended. We would return but next time we will try their "pizza" restaurant on the floor below which we have read glowing reports about.

Best food we had in Amalfi. Stunning creativity and playfulness in the kitchen, nice staff. Nice to be served home baked bread instead of the standard plastic packages.
We were also served an experimental dish without charge.

We ate at Salvatore before attending an event at the Ravello music festival. The restaurant is beautifully situated, with long views of the coast to the south. We ate lightly, but each thing we tried was delicious and interesting. The service was good, and there's a house parrot who entertained us greatly. We chose the restaurant for convenience, but found better-than-expected food that was reasonably priced for the quality, and were very happy.

Modern approach to food prep and presentation. Restaurant has atmosphere and competent staff. On one occasion we were part of a large group and later a twosome and were well looked after on each visit.

We went for lunch and were completely blown away by the incredible view. Add to that an innovative menu, lovely staff and reasonable prices this has become one of our favorite restaurants in Italy. We returned for dinner the next night. It looks like it would be very touristy due to its position but it's fantastic. Don't pay outrageous prices at other posh places! Not sure why there are some negative reviews here - seems most unfair.
