Dining options: After-hours, Reservations
Description: On the wide terrace on warm summer evenings or in a glass-walled dining room, the Garden's restaurant offers the best of regional cuisine. The style is unmistakable classic Italian and the accents are naturally local - the fishermen's "catch of the day" and the equally fresh produce of the hillside farms, citrus orchards, and artisan "butchers, bakers and pasta-makers".

Between the most fabulous view and delicious food, we had the most heavenly and relaxing dining experience!

The restaurant location is right across from the bus stop, before entering the main piazza in Ravello and faces the hills and sea; a low key spot with high impact. We arrived for lunch right when it opened (around 12:15 PM) and were able to dine at a table by the railing with a complete scenic view. These tables are taken up quickly. On a clear day, can see across the sea to Salerno.

Our meal included a salami/cheese plate, gnocchi pasta and monkfish entree. Delicious and good quality food. The gnocchi is one of the lightest and well prepared dishes we have had. The whole monkfish was tasty in its fresh tomato sauce. The meal with a bottle of wine, was about 65 Euros - high in cost for lunch but the food quality and the view absolutely made the cost very reasonable.

The staff service was good, polite and more attentive than we experienced in other restaurants in Italy.

Give Garden Restaurant a try! We will definitely return the next time in Ravello!

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel.

Service was attentive at the beginning, food was very good, but half way through dinner when groups of Italians arrived the waiters seemed to ignore us.

Waiter offered a tasting of the wine he suggested as we weren't familiar with it. He walked by us several times, sometimes waiting on a table, another time just folding napkins. I finally got the waiters attention and he realized he'd forgotten and we finally got our wine. Service continued to be spotty the rest of the evening even though we didn't make a big deal of it, which it wasn't.
I recommend this restaurant for the food and views of the Amalfi Coast but don't expect great service.

We were 2 couple on a cruise with a stop in Sorrento and we wen tot Ravello for lunch after seeing Pompeii. The view was extraordinary. The food (while not inexpensive) was delicious and portions are huge. We share 2 starters and 2 pastas and it was plenty. The mozzarella was fantastic and so was the clam sauce. It was a special lunch in a gorgeous setting

The location was outstanding and we had an excellent table. We made reservations for lunch the previous day. My wife and I shared a melon and prosciutto appetizer which was excellent. Portions were generous. The lunch menu item I selected wasn't available that day and I agreed to take the substitute pasta dish which was a disappointment. The service was excellent in spite of it being very busy. Would definitely return.

Long leisurely lunch with a spectacular view of the Amalfi Coast. The service, while somewhat slow, was typical for this area. My husband orders sea bass the world over and his comment was " this is the best I think I've ever had". The wild clams with pasta was very good and fresh. Order a bottle of pinot grigio and you will hardly notice the slow pace.
