Very good higher end restaurant with large menu selection and fantastic quality. Generous portion of complimentary bread rolls which doubles as sponges for the delicious sauce from the meal. The seafood pasta was very generous in terms of seafood and an excellent meal. We received a complimentary house-produced lemon-based digestif after our meals which went down a treat.

This is a fabulous restaurant recommended by the marketing director (Giocondo) at our hotel. It is named from the church arches that are located inside the restaurant (it used to be a very small church in the town square). The food was amazing- we ate there twice during our stay in Amalfi. Try the risotto con gambiere, or the eggplant!... More

We had a lovely dinner, smoked mozzarella with grilled vegetables for starter and seafood risotto for main. Both excellent. Friendly service, we ate inside because it was a cold March evening and the inside is beautiful. Highly recommended.

We went here because of the reviews. The food was good but not as exceptional as we had expected from the reviews. Good menu choices which were well presented. Tables close together. Limited wine choice. We would go back again but preferred other restaurants in Amalfi

My husband and I loved this restaurant. We loved everything about it, the staff, the ambience and especially the food. My husband had the famous lasagne which he said was fabulous. I had the fresh fish which was beautifully cooked. We went back for a second visit but unfortunately it was a Sunday and that's the day they close -... More

Sat outside in October and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Two in our group requested something not on the menu and they delivered. Food was so good and service was great. Definitely try this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

The best dinner we had out of 6 nights in amalfi. Seafood is their speciality but veggie options better than the standard fare elsewhere. Had ravioli with lovely rich tomato sauce, and another pasta with aubergine, zucchini etc that was superb. Great staff too.

I can be sorry only for going there at my last evening in Amalfi. Otherwise I would go there every evening. Am I clear enough? A small place, family style, with simple and excellant sea food. I wish I could go there tonight.

Thank Sachi299
