Description: Only a few steps away from the cathedral, hidden in the alleyways of Amalfi in one of the most ancient and peaceful squares of the town, is the Taverna Buonvicino. In the authentic tradition of the Amalfi Coast, our guests will enjoy an a la carte menu and a food and wine tasting menu, strictly serving only products in season, to give them a taste of the places and culture of our territory. Our food is not ready made, but the shoert wait respects the sincerity of preparation and cooking times, far from today's much and ready's culture. For those who want to discover the Hidden Amalfi we suggest a journey that starts at the table and leads towards the colours and tastes of our territory where you can discover new places of belonging. Finally, a hidden corner to propose to those guests of ours who love small surprises. We look forward to seeing you here in this hidden corner because 'The true taste of Amalfi is hidden in the alleyways'

This restaurant is hidden up a tiny alley and up stairs. There is seating inside as well as outside on the terrace. Great ambiance. The service was wonderful. We had a great meal of pasta and fish.

This is different from the other Amalfi restaurants we went to. It is tucked away from the crowds but none the worse for that. We ate outside in the evening in the lovely courtyard - just about OK at the start of October.

Very enjoyable food and very nice staff. Well worth a visit.

Given the good reviews was really looking forward to a great lunch here. Unfortunately my salad of lettuce, mozzarella, tomato and bacon was really bland. Ingredients just thrown together with no dressing. My friend chose spaghetti puttanesca which he said was worse than his own version. This was our first and only bad dining experience in Campania so far. Avoid at least for lunch!!

Dear Sinoronaldo,
Thank you for your comments and for giving me the opportunity to explain how we work here at Taverna Buonvicino; firstly the salad: we serve all our salads with no dressing, our waitstaff provides guests with salt, pepper, EVOO and balsamic vinegar, so that one can dress salad to his own personal taste; secondly, the spaghetti puttanesca, the base ingredients we use are garlic, olive olive, olives, capers, tomatoes and chilly. Anchovies are not a must, according to our cuisine, they can be added and melt when fried with garlic and oil, but certainly not basil and cheese!!!!
I am so sorry you didn’t enjoy your experience here with us, and sincerely hope you give us another chance, and we will do our at best to satisfy your expectations.
Looking forward to welcoming you here sometime in the future.
Kind regards
