A short walk from the main street, this is an oasis in tourist land. We sat at one of the five outside tables and had a delightful lunch. We had a tuna salad and the sea bass specials. Both were very good. The service was friendly and efficient. Be aware that a charge off two euros per person is charged... More

Visited TB-not quite sure to expect at first but turned out to be a great meal with great service. The place is tucked away in a back alley . We enjoyed it and would return!

We passed many restaurants deciding where to eat, but we ended up following the delicious aroma coming from Buonvicino. Food and wine were delicious, service friendly and the atmosphere cozy & comfortable. Up to the left of the cathedral, away from the crowds on the main street. The cod & potato chip appetizer & the fried fish were perfect.

This is a great little restaurant tucked away just off the Main Street of Amalfi. The food, wine and service was excellent and very reasonably priced.

Recommended by the hotel proprietor and it waa very good food, in a cosy setting with friendly staff whose English was far better than my Italian. Octopus antipasti was delicious.

I returned to this restaurant on January 4th. I had a great lunch, really impressive. They have a delicious pumpkin cream. I liked a lot the mixed pasta. The fried fish was also excellent. The place was very well heated (the waiter increased the power of the heater when he noticed that we were not fully comfortable). This is a... More

limited menu that most of times I appreciate when the ingredients are quite simple. But the food is manipulated, not simple receipts. In this way the guest can't taste the good ingredients on this marvelous land

This place is a hidden gem! Def worth the walk back into the city and away from the water. The first day we went to the 2 most recommended spots Lido and Smeraldo and had horrible experiences with service and food. Thankfully my wife found this spot and restored my faith in Amalfi. My wife ordered an Italian native fish,... More

We stopped in Amalfi because it was the city with the easiest parking situation in the coast but we were amazed by the food we found at Buonvicino.. Good variety , excellent locatoin and kind sevice. I would return and order the same food all over again... Even the quality of the olive oil caught my attention.

Only a few steps away from the cathedral, hidden in the alleyways of Amalfi in one of the most ancient and peaceful squares of the town, is the Taverna Buonvicino. In the authentic tradition of the Amalfi Coast, our guests will enjoy an a la carte menu and a food and wine tasting menu, strictly serving only products in season, to give them a taste of the places and culture of our territory. Our food is not ready made, but the shoert wait respects the sincerity of preparation and cooking times, far from today's much and ready's culture. For those who want to discover the Hidden Amalfi we suggest a journey that starts at the table and leads towards the colours and tastes of our territory where you can discover new places of belonging. Finally, a hidden corner to propose to those guests of ours who love small surprises. We look forward to seeing you here in this hidden corner because 'The true taste of Amalfi is hidden in the alleyways'
