This restaurant was within walking distance from our accommodation so we tried it. It was a couple of weeks out of season so we didn't expect much ambience as we knew we might be the only diners. The lady who saw us to our table wasn't very welcoming but friendly enough, the guy who was doing the cooking was better and got a roaring fire going (using the inbuilt fan system, not a hair dryer as the 'terrible' review said!). The antipasti board was as good as any alongside some bread and oil, I ordered the entrecote, which was very nice if slightly over-done. My husband had the T Bone and it really was a very good piece of meat beautifully cooked. I wouldn't rush to go back here but really have nothing negative to say about it either. If you're in the Amalfi area and fancy a steak this is a good place to get one.

We had one of the best dinners we have ever had on Valentine's Day with our two young daughters. We were there early, the weather was absolutely horrible, and it was the off-season, so it meant that we had the whole restaurant to ourselves the entire meal.

It was dark when we arrived, so I didn't see the outside really, but the inside was very quaint and cosy, while still elegant. The lovely fireplace really added to the cosiness. Vicky (Vicenzo), Nino and Antonio all made us feel like family, and they were especially lovely to our girls.

We had the Briganti antipasti to start, which was absolutely perfect. For mains we had roast chicken, fusili with meat sauce, rib-eye steak and the meatballs. Every single dish was amazing and prepared fresh and to the highest quality, even though it was the off-season when they may only prepare a couple of any one dish a day. However, if I had to pick just one best dish, the meatballs were probably the best we have ever had, anywhere. Never have I tasted meatballs so rich and with such soft, light texture, like little pillows of Italian meat heaven. The fusili with meat sauce would probably get 2nd place. We ended with some fabulous lemon cake and excellent homemade limoncello, as you must in Amalfi!

As far as value is concerned, given the quality of the food and large portions, I think the prices are spot on.

All I can say is that I would give Briganti a 6 rating if there was one on tripadvisor. Go, you won't regret it.

Amalfi cost is a tricky place, very touristic, therefore with lots of traps. this is NOT the case here. Good food with a reasonable price. It has been said in here, but it is worthing repeating, the second dishes are huge. So, we have an amazing restaurant, with sensational food, nice staff, and a great view, try not to miss it!
