I didn’t want past for dinner, so decided to try their grilled cod fish and it was really delicious. My kids had pasta with tomato sauce and the they loved the sauce.

This is a very poor place to eat food, the staff is poorly trained and they even impose service charge of 2 Euro per person (you come to know about it only upon receiving bill). If you request for tap water then they make faces...since they want you to order bottled water so that they make more money. I would suggest "Amalfi Terminal" good place, food and staff. There are also other restaurants in the vicinity.More

We ate here for lunch while we were on a boat trip along the Amalfi coast. This place is tucked back in the alley behind the Duomo. The food was delicious and the the service was great as well. Moderately priced for what you get....I had the Tuna and my husband had the Lemon Chicken, both were great.More

A lovely, intimate venue, nestled beneath the Piazza Duomo. Reasonably priced and with attentive staff, initial impressions were good which convinced us to dine here for the evening. We started with the scallops which were cooked to perfection. For mains I had the fried mixed...seafood which was fantastic. I was too full for dessert but the lemon cake certainly looked tempting. Fully recommend.More

Went to this restaurant around a week ago with my wife and it was really worth it. Pasta with seafood was so delicious and fresh. Place is in a narrow alley right next to the right side of the Cathedral. Prices are not that bad...neither considering you are in the centre of a very touristic town .Will def be back.More

Lovely hidden away restaurant behind the cathedral. We had a large table of 10 on Saturday night in the restaurant. The waiter was really helpful in rearranging furniture to accommodate us. The food was the most tasty and fresh we had all weekend in Amalfi....The service was with a smile and we felt very welcome unlike a couple of other restaurants that would not accommodate a large party. We all shared the amazing lemon cake for dessert. I would definitely recommend this restaurant (the Parmagiana was delicious!) and it wasn't overpriced.More

We had a lovely meal here while visiting Amalfi. A cute little restaurant tucked off of the main square. Only a few tables outside. We had two nice pastas, a creamy lemon prawn pasta and a Bolognese. We also had a salad with pine nuts,...olives and tomatoes which was really good. €47 for two pastas, a salad and 1/2 litre of wine. Not great value, but good for this area in Amalfi. One of the cheaper options in the area and a really good quality for a slightly cheaper option.More

This restaurant is located in the corner of lower Amalfi Duomo stairs. They have indoor seating and outdoor seating. We had dinner at this place and we ordered mostly seafood menu. Mussels in a pan is absolutely very good. Others like inked pasta, fish, aglio...olio pasta is also excellent. Price is expensive for our standard but it is common in Amalfi and it is worth it considering the quality and service we had at this restaurant.More

Two weeks in Amalfi and this was our Restaurant of choice. Always busy, especially outside, but you can book ahead and is probably wise to do so. Excellent seafood and meat dishes are equally good. Recommend scallops, swordfish, steak and lemon chicken. In terms of...staff, Ilenia is absolutely lovely; cheerful and friendly and always welcoming. Will look forward to a return visit as we can guarantee we will not be disappointed. 😊More
