This was our first night in Amalfi and we had no reservations for dinner. Stumbled upon this place. Just a short walk from our hotel. When we arrived on 9/10/2023 around 7:00 pm the place is packed and we don't have a reservation. But lucky...us there's a table for 2 available. Seated and given menus. Menu has lots of pizza choices as well as pastas, salads, and a few options for meat like chicken. This place is utterly charming. Tables set in a lemon grove. Lemons galore on the trees which also have lights among the branches. Donna Stella started this place in the 1980s. Her daughters-sisters Lorenza and German-currently manage the place. This is the story inside the menu. Tables have colorful tile tops. Plenty of atmosphere. Pizza appears to be the most popular item. Looking around at other tables we see lots of pizza so it's pizza for my husband and me. We can compare it to the ones we've had in Venice and Florence. Also to the pizza we get back home. Drinks. Limoncello spritz for me and Peroni Gran Reserva for my husband. I really, really liked this spritz and Richard has fallen in love with Peroni beer so he's happy! Food. We oder a salad and the margherita pizza to share.OMG! This pizza is fantastic. Best one so far in Italy. (We'd also have pizza in Rome which was our stop after Amalfi but this Amalfi pizza was the best of the entire trip) Maybe even a tad better than the pizza we get back home. Thin crust which we love with a perfect balance of cheese and sauce. This place is packed/busy for a reason. Great service and even better food. That pizza was WOW!! Cost 41€/$44.06. Can highly recommend this place and would definitely return.More

We really wanted a good pizza. And we got it here. We started off by splitting a (huge) delicious salad. Then the capricciosa pizza. Fresh dough made on-site, generous ingredients, and a true wood-burning pizza oven. Wonderful setting under the trellis-supported lemon trees. So delightful...we returned the next night with friends. I strongly recommend Donna Stella.More

We ate at Stella Donna on our first night in Amalfi. The food and ambience were so good that we made a reservation for our last evening as well. Stella Donna is a fantastic restaurant. It is family operated and you can tell that the...owner takes great pride in the operation and food.More

They have great pizzas, friendly service and a beautiful place under the lemon trees. If you don't have a reservation, you should expect to wait in line for 30 minutes ~ 1 hour. We ordered Arancini and two pizzas. The arancini was really good. The...pizzas we ordered from the menu were Teddy and Dioavola. Both pizzas were really excellent, we shared them.More

Disappointing that when sitting down for a booked time (7.30) the day before, we had to leave in an hour. Good food though.

We tried to book during the day but the weather was unsettled so they wouldn’t take the booking. We turned up in the evening and had a 20 minute wait which was fine. The setting is beautiful and rustic under a huge lemon pergola. Was...very busy but good and service was great.More

As we were traveling in August, we booked a table through their email and they confirmed the reservation very quickly, which I liked. The food was excellent. We tried several types of pizzas which were phenomenal. Also, the service was very fast. The only recommendation...is that you might go there for dinner because the ambiance is certainly nicer at night.More

This was the best restaurant we went to in amalfi. The food was absolutely stunning, and the atmosphere was beautiful. Gorgeous ceiling with lemons. It’s very busy so people need to book in advance for the evening meal. Would definitely go back!

We couldn’t get a table here the first time we came as it was packed. We booked the second, and the third… Donna Stella, is tucked away up some steps just off Amalfi’s tourist street. It’s managed by a hands on Italian matriarch, let’s assume...she’s Donna but imagine an older, sweeter, Italian Edna from the Incredibles and you’ll not go far wrong. Incredible sets the theme. Incredible pizzas and other dishes. Incredible ambience; you dine under lemons in a lemon tree covered courtyard. incredible staff, including what appears a truly human recruitment policy to give opportunity to refugees. Incredible value - our meal was less than we paid for the filth served by Bar C Francese outside the duomo (such a shame that owner doesn’t have any pride in their offering). Go here, but book by phone (they speak English) you really will not regret it! As Edna says: “Darling, Luck favors the prepared”. Incredible.More

We ate lunch at Pizzeria Donna Stella and didn’t have a reservation….which we didn’t need. I guess you could call to see about a reservation but don’t know if they take them.
