Places to eat

Mind that almost all good restaurants in Amalfi coast are open from midday to 3pm and then from 7pm to midnight or later. Thus if you decide to have a lucnch at 4pm, you can enjoy only street food or really tourist places.

Le Palme in Atrani

Le Palme is a perfect, friendly restaurant just below the bus stop of Atrani. Every day they have fresh fish and seafood as well as yummy pasta for everyone.

Le Arcate in Atrani

Truly the best pizza in Atrani. They also have an awesome view which affects the price. Romantic spot. Take away pizza cost less as well!

Cuoppo di Amalfi is the best for take away. From the rear steps of St. Andrew’s Cathedral, cross the road and go into small alley between houses. You will find this place little bit before Piazza Dodgi.

Modest place with homemade pasta and friendly and funny staff. Meats, from own butcher shop next door, and local wines ease it all down gently.

Not only Amalfi

RAVELLO

To get here from Atrani you need to take a bus. It’s on a bridge above the town. You can purchase bus tickets in shops with a “T” outside or any postcard shop.

MINORI

A quaint, small town only 2 miles from Atrani. You can get here by ferry, bus, or just hike from Ravello. It’s not a hard hike, I promise!
