“Quiet comfortable 6-night retreat”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

This is the place to stay on the Amalfi Coast if you prefer good value, a quiet retreat from the busy tourist towns, don’t mind driving the hairpin roads (or walking to catch the bus), and love Limoncello (best ever and made by Pino's mamma with home-grown lemons). We loved the terraces, family garden; the patio was a great place to take in views, have conversation and a drink. Room and property has lovely views and is a short walk away from a gorgeous (600 step) stone path to the sea. Had a comfortable bed, though shower was the tiniest we've ever seen and had to wait forever for warm water. I thought the continental breakfast choices were acceptable, spouse did not. We were not impressed with local seafood specialties, especially the octopus and squid dishes. Wife got sick after first meal (suspected food poisoning, possibly from marinated anchovies?) while she was convinced it was the Totani e Patate. However, pharmacist at nearby Pharmacia made it all better. My most memorable and enjoyable meal was the Spaghetti Aglio e Olio ordered "off-menu" on our last night. Restaurant hostess, Antonia, was very pleasant and service oriented. As others noted, Pino was indeed a great host! He was very friendly, made me smile ever time he called me "Michele", generously shared his mamma's limoncello recipe (the local lemons make it special), and was genuinely concerned about making our stay on the Amalfi Coast comfortable and memorable. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this B&B to our friends and family.

Honestly, this one of the best stays ever. Pino is just the most amazing host and I couldn't agree more that it's simply the best stay I've ever had. It was definitely like being in paradise with the views in the morning being stunning sea views and the location just perfectly situated between Amalfi & Positano.

Pino's food was fabulous with the fresh seafood best to none (oh the octopus) and pasta/lasagne spot on. The tomatoes on the first day were so good, really what you expected of Italy. Avoid the risotto though, not so good. I would also recommend that the sachets of olive oil and vinegar be replaced with bottles, a bit tacky.

The room was good and basic, no frills but works. The shower was a bit small and lots of gizmos to keep your entertained. TV had lots of channels you wouldn't watch, many didn't work.

Overall, this is the best stay I've ever had and would highly recommend. I would definitely return and I miss Pino to this day - Pino is the sort of guy who should be in hospitality for all the right reasons. Right on Pino Fantastico :)

Room Tip: Make sure you get the sea view - I think most are.

Nuestra estadia de 3 noches en Fico d’ India ha sido excelente. Todo muy bien.El comedor restaurant donde se desayuna es espectacular, y el desayuno italiano muy bueno. Como lo indican todos los que han estado en este Albergo, todo estaba muy prolijo y muy limpio. El lugar es muy bello, las vistas muy hermosas.
La Costa Malfitana muy recommendable e imperdible, los caminos muy panoramicos, a cada curva un Nuevo panorama del mar o de la Montana, Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, todas maravillosas.
Pino es el anfitrion perfecto, muy amable y colaborador. Nos hizo sentir como en casa. Gracias Pino, ci vediamo la prossima volta. Recomendamos sinceramente este lugar.
