We had no reservation, seemed to be a small issue, however we were accommodated. We waited a bit for service, a bit too long, however when the maitre came he offered advice that he would select for us the seafood antipasto and a fish main. Oh my, this was all superb!

The service was not warm and fast, however it was informative and once it got going was very efficient. A sort of no nonsense service, that had a confident swagger about it. Friendly once the ice was broken.

The antipasto had many varieties of fish, cured, pickled, sashmi style; stuffed zucchini flowers, razor shellfish; very interesting and delicious. Then the fish, perfectly cooked. They recommended a fabulous wine, and the digestive afterwards, and not just the ubiquitous limoncello, some other delicious things.

Seemed mostly to be locals and Italians. Nice white tablecloths, quiet restaurant, small-ish.

If you go in high season, I think you should book ahead.

It's a little bit off of the main tourist drag, but worth the trip -- went at lunch when it was *very* quiet, and were treated exceptionally well by our server who made all food suggestions without a menu (three courses of crudo, cooked fish, and seafood risotto, plus a bottle of local wine). One of us is celiac, so they modified the menu without any fuss to accommodate her with raw and cornmeal-crusted fish. Every preparation was taken with a high degree of technical skill, and you definitely got a sense of eating local instead of touristy. Price was Euro 67, totally reasonable given the quality of the meal. Would definitely go back!

We chose the dinner for two and had a wonderful spread of courses. If you like seafood, you will not be disappointed. Let the server guide you as it encompassed catch of the day. The service was excellent.

We walked by the neat looking restaurant and the outstanding food adventure started. No menus graced our hands, but the waiter advising us that we would love the seafood antipasto offering and we'd love the pasta and fish offerings for the primo and second piatto. We were more than happy to be guided and indulged by their offerings. What an amazing antipasto. Not your typical antipasto, but a degustation of the delights of the sea with five different offerings coming out sequentially and cooked in ways that were both typical of the region and with an international influence. The fish main meal was deliciously cooked with the accompaniments not overpowering the flavour of the fish. The delicate fish meat was carefully handled by the chef and made for a delightful fish main meal. The main meal could have have included a vegetable or salad accompaniment of the same standard of the fish, but you definitely weren't lacking for food as the antipasto offering certainly was filling ad the star performance of the meal.

I must start by saying that all of this region has amazing food, you can't go wrong with any of the places. They all make fresh homemade pasta and it's delightful.
This particular restaurant was a total standout though, as it serves mainly seafood based pastas and it was sensational. Also very high quality. The waiter was very helpful with wine pairing and food suggestions. Even the kids were able to get something here and I have a fussy eater.
It was more on the expensive side of food, however it wasn't really expensive, if you get what I mean.
Definitely a must when in Atrani.
