Staying in Cetara we were amazed to find a Michelin starred restaurant so close by. The welcome was warm, and we were escorted to our table by a very charming man - who turned out to be the owner. Really nice to be in a family run business - now in its third generation. The views from the table were... More

Arrived at the restaurant and were greeted warmly by the owner and hostess. We followed the hostess down through beautiful landscaped grounds to an enclosed room overlooking the ocean and Maiori. The room and atmosphere are magical. The service was spectacular. The food was beautifully plated, and perfectly cooked as well as delicious. Wonderful wines to compliment each course. An... More

For the money, no good. 500.00 euros for our family. We were there 20 years ago, it has totally change to a very upscale Restaurant. It was so great then, that on our visit now we took a special trip to find it again. The setting is absolutely amazing, wish the food was the same...

This restaurant had been recommended by our day tour guide in Rome and chef at our country club in Buffalo, NY. It exceeded expectations. Great food, wine list, service, and ambience. A bit out of the way (about $25 Euros each way by taxi from Maiori [busses were full and refused to pick us up]) but worth the trip. Plan... More

We stopped by out of pure luck (they had parking on a busy Saturday), but what an experience. We were welcomed in, and even if clearly 'touristic' outfitted with shorts and sandals, we never felt out of place for our lunch in this amazing restaurant. The views are fantastic, the staff professional and friendly and the food is on a... More

This is classy place with excellent service and food by any standards. The location and views are beautiful, and there is enough parking space to accommodate guests. In spite of being very classy place, it is telling that owner volunteered to drop us off in the middle of night at our villa 1.2 km away. Very nice experience at all... More

Il Faro was recommended by our hotel manager. It did not disappoint. Everything about the evening was perfect. The service was friendly but professional. The view from our table was basically a postcard from the Amalfi Coast at sunset. The food was divine, local flavors combined with 5-star techniques, this was the most sophisticated dinner we had while in Italy... More
