The restaurant is located in the port area of Amalfi, on the sea. The terrace position is strategic because it offers a complete view of the panorama. Good food, fresh fish. Recommended!

very good. Service was fine, bit the qualify of the food was definitively above average. Had a lobster with pasta, and it was excellent.

This restaurant came highly recommended. What a disappointment! The food (especially the sauce) was absolutely tasteless.

Although the food is good, there’s nothing here that really separates it from other restaurants. In fact I would have to say, in a place like the Amalfi coast where there are several hundred places to eat, this restaurant has average food. They have a...very large outdoor dining patio right on the water, which is probably why there are people waiting to eat out from between 7:30-10:00. The staff is ok but not overly friendly, which may be do to the owner who was micro managing his staff around like crazy the entire time we were there. You might want to try some other establishments before deciding to eat here.More

Great restaurant in the harbor of Amalfi. The views were fantastic with fishing and charter boats moving around. Once it gets dark, the view of the Amalfi coast is great. The service and food were very good and reasonably priced. We ate there for our...first dinner in Amalfi and were glad we did.More

Our evening was great and we all enjoyed the place as well as the excellent food and drink. The place was almost FULL cos they have a wonderful terrace over the sea as well as a large internal room, so we could all eat outside....This is mainly a seaside so fish restaurant, but they also have a wood-fired pizza oven so the food selection is fantastic! We were in no hurry to eat which is lucky cos the service is really SLOW, they should do better. We were 5 in total and the bill was only 180 Euro which is EXCELLENT value and the owner always likes a good chat, he is a lovely fellow. ENJOY this place, er slowly.More

We stayed at the Aurora Hotel and the receptionist recommended this place and offered to book us a table. We arrived at the time of the booking only to wait outside with about 40 other people waiting for a table. One couple told us they...had booked for 20.30 (this was at 21.20) They were handing out prosecco to people waiting. My husband was given a glass, they offered nothing to me (I'm 6 months pregnant). We waited 45 mins outside for our supposedly booked table. Once inside, another 15 mins before we could flag down a waiter and order. Good food but disorganised and poor, dismissive service. What's the point of booking a table if the booking time is not respected? Not worth it.More

Our favourite restaurant in Amalfi! We almost eat here every night...! The staff are so friendly and welcoming! You need to book as it gets very busy. However if you have to wait for your table you get to enjoy a complimentary glass of Prosecco....The restaurant is a lovely oasis as the end of the Marina where you can watch the boats for hours. The food is fantastic and it’s very reasonably priced (the house rose is great!). We love coming to this restaurant so much, the staff have become our friends. You must visit when in Amalfi!More

Se siete turisti evitate. Ci hanno rovinato la serata. Camerieri scortesi e non all’altezza e tempi di attesa folli. Siccome noi eravamo turisti, servivano prima ai tavoli di clientela abituale anche se si erano seduti molto dopo di noi... Se chiedete spiegazioni, i camerieri diventavo...ancora più maleducati e sulla difensiva. Cibo normale, nulla di speciale! Inoltre essendo sulla terrazza, la sera è pieno di moscerini attratti dalla luce e che inevitabilmente vi cadranno più volte nel bicchiere. Ci sono posti piu buoni e anche più economici nelle vicinanze, con servizio decisamente più all’altezza! Posto da evitare. ****************************************************** Tourists, avoid it! They ruined our night... Unfriendly waiters and not up to par the good and qualitative service and crazy waiting times. Since we were tourists, they served first at the tables of usual customers even if they had sat long after us ... If you ask for explanations, the waiters became even more rude and defensive. Normal food, nothing special! It doesn’t worth it. Furthermore, being on the terrace, it is full of midges attracted by the light and which will inevitably fall into the glass several times. There are better and cheaper places nearby, with a much better service! Avoid this resturant.More

We had diner at the Smeraldino after a long sailing trip coming from Marina di Camerota. Good atmosphere, good service, good sea food and decent prices. Good value. I would recommend.
