Restaurants on the Amalfi Coast

Eating well on the Amalfi Coast is easy. Home to no fewer than 7 Michelin starred restaurants, this 50km stretch of the Italian coastline boasts a string of gourmet restaurants and any number of family-run eateries in which to enjoy good, honest, home cooking. Whether you decide to treat yourself to an unforgettable epicurean experience, savoring the creations of some of Italy's most famous chefs, or a leisurely lunch in one of the Amalfi Coast's casual, sea edge restaurants, you can expect some of the finest Mediterranean cuisine you'll ever eat.

Below, you'll find a selection of what we consider to be the best restaurants on the Amalfi Coast... buon appetito!

Restaurant opening hours on the Amalfi Coast
  • Lunch: from 12.30 to 15.00
  • Dinner: from 19.30 to 23.00

In the summer, restaurants tend to stay open beyond normal opening hours. In the evening, Italians, in particular, rarely sit down to eat before nine and in high season might not even start ordering until 11 pm! It's always a good idea to reserve your table, especially if you want to dine in one of the Amalfi Coast's more famous restaurants or during the weekend.



Da Adolfo

This casual restaurant on the Laurito beach is accessible from Positano by boat or by taking the footpath that begins near the Hotel San Pietro. The restaurant offers a boat service back and forth between the Spiaggia Grande beach in Positano; you will recognize the boat by its bright red paint and fish sign hanging from th emast. It has become “The Place to Eat” for tourists on the coast recently, but it's not always easy to book a table as they don't answer the phone with any regularity. Ask your hotel concierge to book for you.

La Tagliata

Another "must experience" meal at Positano is lunch at La Tagliata: this restaurant is on the Montepertuso hill and has beautiful views over the Li Galli Islets and the stretch of coast ending with the Faraglioni sea stacks off Capri. They are specialized in grilled meats, and you can spy their own animals grazing on the small terraces and visit the farm. We suggest booking a table for lunch to enjoy the view; you can also request a shuttle service from Positano. An informal atmosphere and reasonable prices.

Chez Black

For lunch or dinner on the Spiaggia Grande beach in Positano, this restaurant is a classic. Traditional dishes, generous portions, impeccable service...the prices are rather expensive, but the location is unbeatable. You will often be sitting elbow to elbow with a celebrity!

Casa e bottega

For a light lunch or healthy snack, this small eatery is perfect. They serve salads made with organic products, fruit smoothies, homemade cakes, and natural snacks. They also have a cute shop where you can buy unique crafts and home decor, much of which - from the tableware to the pillows - is used to decorate the dining room.

Conca dei Marini

La Tonnarella

This was a favorite of Jackie Kennedy and the Agnelli family in the 1970's, when VIPs would order cases of Moet-Chandon to be delivered here directly from France. This jet-set vibe has largely disappeared over the past few decades, but the stunning location on the beach along the tiny bay and the excellent cuisine have remained the same. Shuttle boat service to and from Amalfi.

Trattoria da Rispoli (Pogerola)

If you are looking for a spot to sample real coastal cuisine with no modern reinterpretation in an informal and authentic atmosphere, then head up to Pogerola and pull up a chair at this no-frills, all food oasis run by the Rispoli sisters. This trattoria has been around since the ’50s, when it was a gathering place for the local men to play cards, drink wine, and indulge in a steaming plate of pasta. It hasn't changed much since then: Enza is in the kitchen, Marina is in the dining room, and both work to make sure no one leaves hungry after their generous portion of pasta. Their most famous dish are fried anchovies stuffed with provola cheese.

Da Bacco

If you are a wine aficionado, book a tour of the Marisa Cuomo winery followed by lunch here.
