We were attracted by the waterfront location and it seemed busy, what we thought was a good sign. It turned out the crowds were tour groups. The restaurant serves up food in quantity, and I’m afraid the quality suffers. We both had fish that was spongy with a dollop of tomato-based sauce. The service was good, however. I really wish we had gone elsewhere.

We ate dinner here in santagnello. The seafood salad was amazing. Never had such fresh and perfectly cooked seafood like this before! The main entrees were also delicious. The staff was very attentive and friendly. I finished the meal with tiramisu. Don't miss it if you have a chance to dine here!

I can't really understand some reviews of restaurants and the samples given for this place seem totally inappropriate. The restaurant is located right on the waterfront giving the place an advantage over some of its rivals. We found some light offerings on the menu and ordered soup, fried eggs and fries. This may offend the more Mediterranean consumers but it was well cooked and the soup was very tasty.
Some of my fellow travellers ordered sea food and we all agreed that the food was fine. Service a little chaotic for some diners who seemed to wait a long time but we found it a good place to eat and would certainly return when in the area.

This place is only in business because of its beautiful and convenient location. The atmosphere is outdated, dingy, and low class. The food is salty and not fresh. They cover seafood with salty broth or mayonnaise-based sauces to hide its poor quality. There is amazing food in Amalfi, so do not waste your time or money here.

The fact that you can eat lunch even if it’s already 3pm is an important advantage. And they serve you whatever you want, not only sandwiches and other cold snacks.
