We found this place on trip advisor and we were hoping for a locals feel. The owner made us feel like family, not a local! The caprese salad was so delicious we ordered a second. The fish of the day was recommended to us by the owner so how could we pass on this. It was sea bass and was the most fresh fish i have ever had. This place is very busy all the time so I recommend going with plenty of time to spare

We came across this restaurant whilst strolling around Ravello in search of food before one of the open air concerts. The restaurant was extremely busy due to a party that was being held, however they fitted us in and the food was delicious. No matter where you go along the Amalfi coast the mozzarella and tomato salad and red wine are exceptional.. no guesses what we had here! But the highlight was the Calzone pizza.. my first one of our holiday and it was absolutely amazing. The dough tasted beautiful, you really can taste the difference between a wood oven cooked meal here. My husband had a pizza and said it was one of the best he'd had whilst we had been in Amalfi. I think because there was a large part going on the service suffered a little, however we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and have already recommended the restaurant to a friend who's visiting Amalfi soon.

the owner was extremely welcoming and made us feel like a local. The food was amazing. Startled with mussels and seafood sauté- both huge portions and delicious. Then we had a the fish of the day- sea bass which was so fresh along with a pasta seafood dish. All so good - heading back tonight it was so good!

We took a taxi to Ravello from Amalfi and our taxi driver recommended this restaurant for lunch. It was almost empty and I didn't expect much. The food was delicious...we had caprese salads and pizza and both were big enough to share (think we had two of each for 4 of us). The service was very good and very friendly. We would definitely go back.

This place is simply fantastic! We got the best mussels ever in italy. The owner came by and served for us fresh Raw scampi turned in lemon and salt. We also had their home made ravioli stuffed with lemon Cheese and a lemon and pumpkin sauce on top. For dessert a lemon cake - fantastico.
