After a week in Amalfi enjoying very high quality food, this turns out to be probably the best so far. Come here hungry, and you wont be disappointed. Ensure you book al fresco, its on the first floor up a few steps from the busy street. As we entered, I glanced into the kitchen and saw a dish just prepared (anchovies), which I ordered on the spot. Spaghetti with clams was excellent, the lamb cooked pink was tasty, but the real table thumper was the fish soup main course. It says "minimum 2 persons" - frankly could feed a family of four easily. We did not finish it. Desserts ordered by surrounding tables looked brilliant but we were already too full. If you have the time and belly for it, recommend you try one of the two tasting menus. Strike up a conversation with the waiter on the da Gemma history - I'll leave that to you, but it's a story of friendship, talent, and hard work that's paid off well.

This is a 'must' for any foodie sick of the same old same old in Amalfi town. We booked super last minute and were graciously accommodated. The wine list is extensive. We struggled to choose between many fantastic sounding dishes. In the end we went with an appetizer feature which was an unreal seafood carpaccio platter for two. I had the paccheri and my companion the handmade ravioli. Service was impeccable, they are on top of it. Servers chatted with us and not in that obligatory way. A++. DO IT.

Stopped here for lunch whole on a tour of the Amalfi coast. The place is very close to the Amalfi town square. We got there in time to beat out the cruise crowd. Three of us had their catch of the day, filleted to perfection. They had vegetarian options as well and the service was great. The bread choices were great. I had a glass of Brunello di Montalcino, which was perfect for the day. The lunch ended with tiramisu an shots of LimonCello. Great fare at a great location

What a fab restaurant - we came twice in the week it was so good. The service equals the superb quality of food. Nonna's primi is sublime. The wine list is great and this is a must booking when in Amalfi. Lovely setting just off the square and the restaurant has a lovely feel/vibe.
