We visited this small restaurant on the Main Street of Lacco Ameno. The waitress, daughter of the owner was very pleasant and helpful. However, the head waiter was really over the top. I asked for the fettuccini with porcini and when I asked for cheese I was reprimanded! The water coming in an unlabelled bottled cost €6! I asked for... More

I'm sorry to say that my meal was gritty and very salty. This place has excellent reviews so I can only assume something went very wrong with my linguine allo scoglio. I did point out that it was over salty and the waitress explained that it was because of the black mussels. However, I have eaten black mussels before in... More

We stumbled across this restaurant one evening and thought we must try it. It looked lovely walking by, tables lit with candles and every table was taken. When we arrived we were seated at a table of our choice. The Italian waitresses had pretty good English and were ever so friendly and helpful. We ordered spaghetti with tomato and ricotta... More

My wife and I were so warmly greeted here with olives, crisps and fresh oysters to go with a lovely red wine they recommended. Having only sat down for a quick drink we were easily enticed into ordering a meal, with huge fresh fish being wafted under customers noses as the catch of the day. We went with a seafood... More

I can extol the virtues of this restaurant enough. If you are looking for TRULY fresh fish (nothing frozen here) that is prepared in a way that you can actually taste the fish this is the place for you. Great friendly service that also gave great council on local and other wines to complement the dishes served. I have eaten... More

My husband and I loved this place. Nino was a fantastic member of staff and couldn't have done anymore for us. The food was lovely and they have a great selection of wine. I would definitely recommend this place.

Delicious food and excellent service. The restaurant doesn't have a nice water view but it makes up for it in quality of food and friendly service.

Good diner restaurant. Very friendly service. All courses were excellent. "Catch of the day" rather expensive. Great wine list. One of the better in Lacco Ameno

My friend and I were staying up the road and stumbled across Catina del Mare one evening by chance and we're so blessed to have done so. As soon as we walked in we felt at home and the host, Pierpaolo was just charming. The food was to die for and you could tell lovingly made. Delicious starters, pasta and... More

This is an absolute gem of a restaurant! What a find. On an island blessed with more than its fair share of beautiful spots, this one ticks all the boxes. In the heart of the sleepy village of Lacco Ameno, it offered THE finest spot for people watching, and the amazingly fragrant seafood and succulent wines made this an unforgettable... More
