If you’re looking for something more low-key yet still impressive, try this atmospheric little trattoria located in the maze-like backstreets of the centro storico. Il Teatro, which translates to ‘theater,’ is hidden in a cluster of white houses and has a rustic, old-fashioned charm. Local, traditional seafood dishes are available at an affordable price. Try the scialatelli with seafood, a specialty pasta of Amalfi that Il Teatro serves with a fantastic savory sauce. The interior is spacious and bright with large arches, and the servers are extremely friendly and helpful.

Ristorante La Caravella is a Michelin-starred restaurant specializing in regional dishes with a modern twist. Some dishes lean toward simplicity (grilled catch of the day served on lemon leaves) while others get experimental (homemade cuttlefish-ink-pasta stuffed with ricotta cheese and lobster). The small restaurant doesn’t offer any picturesque sea views from its location in the heart of Amalfi, but the food is some of the best you’ll find in the area and the interior is beautifully decorated. Reserve a spot so you don’t miss out on this fabulous Italian restaurant.
Established in 1987, Silver Moon is located in a red and white striped building with a blue roof, a design that was inspired by the American flag. Locals and travelers love Silver Moon for its fresh cuisine made from ingredients found along the Amalfi Coast and its excellent harbor views. Diners can choose between sitting inside, which is covered by a lovely gazebo-like ceiling and glass walls to maximize the panoramic view, or a platform directly on the beach. Try the linguine alla Silver Moon, grilled prawns, or the catch of the day.
