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.
