I really enjoyed the seafood at this restaurant. The seafood risotto tasty as it had a great abundance of seafood. The grilled calamari was also good. However, the service didn't have very much character.

La Brace is a small and cozy restaurant run by a mother and her son. The son (waiter) is fluent in Italian, Dutch and English, his mother does all the cooking in the kitchen. Dishes are fairly cheap considering the quality of food and the size of the portions. The restaurant is small and offers only a single service so a reservation is a must and one must do so a couple days in advance to make sure to have a place. The food is extremly tasty (taste’s just like mama’s cooking) yet simple and made with fresh italian ingredients. Per person, a dinner service is around 25-35 euros (prices of fish dishes vary according to market prices), a reasonable amount in Cefalu and by far one of the best restaurants in the old part of the city.

We just wanted some pizza so tried La Brace and were disappointed: too greasy/oily, too much, too fast. Good crust is the best we could say.

My wife and I, along with another couple, spent a week in Praiano along the Amalfi Coast. We ate dinner in a number of restaurants, all of which were good. La Brace stood out. It felt like Italy, from the structure to the staff to the wonderful food. The pasta, fish, shellfish, and wine, along with the personnel, made this a superior experience.

Unassuming, great service best seafood lunch.
If you don't select a fish for them to make their Zuppa Peasce Mare with you missed the meal of your trip. Scampi prawns mussels in broth with tomato for half the price you would expect to pay.
I'll be back tomorrow.
