We had a delicious meal here. Pizza with a crispy thin base and delicious topping and homemade pasta with sausage which was absolutely excellent. All served with a glass of the local red wine - and not too expensive. Would highly recommend.

Amazing home made food. Everything tastes fresh and flavourful. They even came to pick us up from the hotel because it was a bit of a long walk. Seems like it is a family run place and they are extremely friendly and polite. Definitely a must when in Amalfi.
