What a great find! Located right next to the entrance of Villa Rufolo, Garden Restaurant screamed out, "overpriced tourist trap". Thankfully we were pleasantly surprised that it was anything but. We were taken to our table which was next to the balcony railing. We were treated to a breathtaking view of the coastline and the neighbouring town of Minori. The... More

Most downtown restaurants in Ravello were either closed or full when we looked for a dinner (7PM) restaurant. We were directed to The Garden by a local businessman so we walked in and were seated immediately with a gorgeous view of the Amalfi coast. The food was fantastic and the portions way over the top. We had fish for our... More

Between the most fabulous view and delicious food, we had the most heavenly and relaxing dining experience! The restaurant location is right across from the bus stop, before entering the main piazza in Ravello and faces the hills and sea; a low key spot with high impact. We arrived for lunch right when it opened (around 12:15 PM) and were... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. Service was attentive at the beginning, food was very good, but half way through dinner when groups of Italians arrived the waiters seemed to ignore us. Waiter offered a tasting of the wine he suggested as we weren't familiar with it. He walked by us several times, sometimes waiting on... More

We were 2 couple on a cruise with a stop in Sorrento and we wen tot Ravello for lunch after seeing Pompeii. The view was extraordinary. The food (while not inexpensive) was delicious and portions are huge. We share 2 starters and 2 pastas and it was plenty. The mozzarella was fantastic and so was the clam sauce. It was... More

The location was outstanding and we had an excellent table. We made reservations for lunch the previous day. My wife and I shared a melon and prosciutto appetizer which was excellent. Portions were generous. The lunch menu item I selected wasn't available that day and I agreed to take the substitute pasta dish which was a disappointment. The service was... More

Long leisurely lunch with a spectacular view of the Amalfi Coast. The service, while somewhat slow, was typical for this area. My husband orders sea bass the world over and his comment was " this is the best I think I've ever had". The wild clams with pasta was very good and fresh. Order a bottle of pinot grigio and...

The view was amazing, like most of Almafi coast. We enjoyed the seafood shellfish app and the ravioli. Our monk fish was fishy, however we were warned ahead. The service was not great, but upon observation we weren't treated differently than other tables. Atmosphere- 5 stars, food 3.5, service 3...

We hiked up to Ravello from Amalfi and had a great lunch with one of the best views on the Amalfi coast. Food and service are excellent.

We hesitated because it sounds and looks like a tourist trap but it was surprisingly very good. The octopus salad was the dish I call out of this world. We've been to Barcelona and Mallorca and its was definitely the best we've ever had. Don't go if you're in a time crunch, service was a little slow.

On the wide terrace on warm summer evenings or in a glass-walled dining room, the Garden's restaurant offers the best of regional cuisine.
The style is unmistakable classic Italian and the accents are naturally local - the fishermen's "catch of the day" and the equally fresh produce of the hillside farms, citrus orchards, and artisan "butchers, bakers and pasta-makers".
