This is a tiny little pizza plus eatery just above the center of Vettica Maggiore. We had lunch here and found the owner to be delightful and friendly. The salad was excellent as ws the pizza. Recommended.

Great home-cooked Italian food, and very friendly chef/owner, Aldo. My daughter ordered the margherita pizza, and I ordered the quattro formaggi rigatoni pasta. We ended up having half of each other's food because it looked so good, and looks did not deceive!

Great food whilst being treated like one of the family. Sunset views whilst sitting outside are great. Simple food well cooked. I went with chefs recommendations which was good move as that was the fresh fish caught that day. Great value and the most relaxing...More

We were lucky enough to stay in Praiano two years ago and discovered Aldo's Il Rifugio Trattoria. It is a real gem. It's a small restaurant with outside (and some inside) seating on a steep hill but, except for peak season, there is usually parking...More
