    Cafe Europa: Great for people watching!

    We didn't eat anything other than pizza here... we mainly stopped in for drinks and limoncello on each visit to Minori (located on the square). The cafe is owned/operated by a German/ Italian family - they were super friendly and always took time to chat with us.

    Favorite Dish: Vino and limoncello

  • Lo Scugnizzo: If you love bruschetta

    by willypit Updated Sep 17, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is not a fancy restaurant by any means, just a family ( the mom is the cook, the son the waiter) run operation. The food is outstanding, not only do they make a great pizza, but they also are a paticceria. Now what drew me to sit down at one of their tables was a plate of bruschetta I saw being brought to a customer, it was beautiful. The bruschetta I ordered was truly the best I've ever had, the bread was baked on the premises, the tomatoes, basil, and oregano were all grown on a plot of land behind the restaurant, and the size of the serving was a meal in its self. Please do yourself a favor when in Amalfi, go see Luigi and order the buschetta.

    Calajanara Restaurant: Conca dei Marini

    Linguine con gli scampli del Tirreno
    4 more images

    This is a restaurant at the La Concha Azzurra Hotel which has also Allerè Art Shop with it. We stopped here on our way along the Amalfi Drive. The main thing in favor of this place is the view and location.

    Favorite Dish: Here there were no hamburgers for my picky grandson so I ordered Linguine con gli scampli del Tirreno (flat spaghetti with scampi), and Fusilli all'ortolana con provaloa agerolose (home made pasta with vegetables). Both were 16 €

    I ate the pasta with vegetables and my grandson ate the spaghetti which had almost no sauce. Neither one of us liked the scampi which were sort of soggy. Again we had the cover charge for the bread 3.50€ (my grandson ate most of it) and a 10% cover charge.

  • Donna Rosa: A huge disappointment

    by pilie Written Apr 28, 2009

    We listened to absolutely rave reviews from a married couple in their 40s who were staying in our hotel, and paid the 30 euro round-trip taxi (the only way to get there). For this reason they said there were very few diners, and indeed we found only two people at a table throughout our meal. The service was attentive but the food nothing out of the ordinary. Unless you are a gourmet specialist who knows what to ask for and likes to chit-chat with the hostess, save your money.

  • Il Doge on the main square in Amalfi: Awful spaghetti sauce

    by pilie Updated Apr 28, 2009

    An over-friendly, English-speaking waiter was eager to get us seated, only to ignore us when we wanted to complain about the spaghetti, that came with hardly any sauce. But he did change the dish, added more sauce, which was pale pink, seemingly out of a can.The best sauce is tick and sticks to the spaghetti; this one did not.

    by acoco Written Apr 23, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in a "Palazzo" from the 11th century, La Caravella offers a very tipical ambiance with traditional regional Napoletan Music and an impecable service. The food menu is excelent with traditional napoletan cuisine with a modern view. The wine list is also very good and, as a matter of fact, there are two wine list, one for reds and one for whites, sparkiling and desert. Both organized by country and regions.

    Favorite Dish: Try the Sample Menu, for € 120 you will sample 2 appetizers, 2 pasta course, 2 main course and 2 deserts with 4 pairing wines. It's a gastronomic experience that you cann't miss.

    Da Gemma: Fresh Fish at the Balcony

    by acoco Written Apr 23, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Da Gemma is a very traditional restaurant in Amalfi, located by the main street with a lovely balcony. Although seafood is the high it's not the only choice. You can also have pasta and meat. As usual in Italy, always leave room for desert, you will thank me for this tip.
    Ambiance is very cozy and service is good. As you walk in you have, at your left, a full view of the kitchen and if you have to wait for your table you can enjoy viewing the chef at work.

    FISHERMAN'S CATCH

    by travelgourmet Updated Jun 25, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE PERFECT LUNCH IN AMALFI

    There are many restaurants in Amalfi, some small and just right for the quick bite to eat, and others on the fancy side with large seafood menus. Most of the restaurants will feature seafood as this is a hot spot for local fishermen. Of course, everything is freshly caught.

    Favorite Dish: A dish I became fond of in Italy is the mussels. Whether done with pasta, or sitting on a plate alone, the mussels seem so right and so fresh in Italy. They make for a wonderful lunch or the first course of a four course meal. A good glass of wine to help wash them down, completes the meal.

  • La Capannina: A very fine restaurant in Pogerola near Amalfi

    by lerouxr Written Jun 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Going to this restaurant is truly an exquisite experience. Even if their sign says it is a pizzeria, it is much more!. Owned and operated by a local family - father, mother and 2 sons - the menu changes every week. One of the sons went away to study in one of Italy's best cuisine schools and came back with menus based on the fine local products.

    Instead of having a simple year round menu, the chef proposes a different menu every week, composed of different Antipasti, pasta, meats and fish/seafood. They also have a very nice choice of pizzas.

    Ristorante Pizzeria Le Palme: A unique experience

    Ristorante Pizzeria Le Palme
    1 more image

    The restaurant Le Palme is located in the beautiful village of Atrani. Here you can taste delicious Campanian and local food with a very friendly staff.
    The rastaurant give you a special atmosphere that it feel like at home.
    Enjoy your meal!!!

    Favorite Dish: I can suggest to taste in this fantastic restaurant the following dishes: Scialatelli ai frutti di mare (home made pasta with seafood), Paccheri con scorfano e noci di Sorrento (a big home made macaroni with scorpion fish and walnut of Sorrento. As main dish I can suggest to try the delicious Pesce locale alla griglia con aglio e prezzemolo (grilled local fish with garlic, parsley and olive oil). Very good is Pesce locale all'acqua pazza (local fish to the crazy water: fish boiled in salt water with vegetables, spices and more). Very good are also Gnocchi con gorgonzola e noci (gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese and walnut).
    You must ask to the waiter if you want more dishes or the fantastic appetizer like prawn or fish pancake. The dessert are all home made and change every day: I can suggest to try the tortino al limone (little cake with lemon cream) or the pastiera (Italian cake made with ricotta cheese)

  • Pansa: Bakery, coffee shop, wine bar

    by ttsui Written Feb 22, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great location, located to the right of the Duomo in Amalfi. They have an eclectic variety of coffee drinks, chocolate, pastries, teas, and a wide selection of local wine for purchase. If you sit outside and order drinks, they serve it with a small piece of pastry or cookie. See if Coco, a golden lab, will come and sit by you while you sip your coffee. Coco was a mainstay in the square when we visited, and would play with local kids kicking soccer ball or follow you around.

  • Trattoria a Tari: Great seafood!

    by ttsui Written Feb 22, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Frutti de mare......that's what my husband and I wanted on our trip in Amalfi. A local fruit/vegetable vendor directed us here when I asked "Dove mangia bene frutti de mare?" There is a tourist prix fixe menu (spaghetti vongole, sea bass, and dessert when I was there) for 18 euros, but the menu is full of other seafood dishes. Waiter was nice, and the bathroom was very clean. This was one of the best meals we had on our trip.

    Favorite Dish: My girlfriends and I both ordered the seabass (one was with butter sauce, the other was lemon). Both was delicious. Cauliflower was the vegetable of the day, and it literally MELTED in my mouth. Never had such great cauliflower before!

    Bar Gelateria Il Pianeta: Pleasant, but not cheap........

    by leics Written Feb 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Il Pianeta

    Of course it's not cheap: it's on the main square (Piazza del Duomo) of a town which makes its living, in the main, from tourism and daytrippers. so I don't really begrudge the high prices, and was expecting them.

    But you should know that a 'sugar'cone of gelati will cost 4 euros (prices aren't displayed, or nowhere I could see them anyway). Which is substantially more than one would normally pay (even in somewhere like Sorrento).

    Prices apart, the gelati was as lovely as all Italian gelati is.

    The atomosphere of this restaurant was actually better than the food. There is a fantastic outdoor dining area and the staff were friendly - offering us bruscetta and limoncello complimentary.

    Favorite Dish: We both had pasta dishes that were very good.
