  • My Wife bought a small table for her birthday while in Ravello. The kind folks at Ceramiche Cosmolena created and shipped (in one piece) a beautiful small accent table.  more »
  • We bought the most amazing set of serving ceramics with a beautiful hand-painted peacock design from Ceramiche Cosmolena. Salvatore DiPalma and his team were a pleasure to work with...they treated us ...  more »

  • We saw mention of Ravello in a magazine article and decided to get off the main Amalfi road and go for some views and lunch higher up the mountain side. While waiting for our lunch at a table in the main square my husband returned telling me I really needed to go into the art gallery Cosmolena that's right on the piazza. My hubby felt he really needed the most expensive mug I had ever heard of so I had to check it out. We both fell in love with the bright colours and contemporary patterns on their ceramic plates but what I really wanted was the table top/art piece that perfectly reflected what the Amalfi Coast FEELS like...the blue blue water, the rugged coastline, the fiery volcanic textures, and the Italian sense of taste and design. We bought the mug and took it with us. The table top (ceramic glazed lava rock) and dinner plates were shipped to us. Everything arrived very well packaged although one plate had a hairline crack. I sent photos and they responded quickly offering a choice of another design that could be shipped straight away or a similar (as they are hand painted one of a kind) that would ship in 4 weeks. We got our replacement plate within a week. Oh, and they also held our order per our request and did not ship it until we had arrived home. They were friendly in the store and throughout every interaction. We couldn't be happier with the product and the services...although we have only used the plates twice so far. I can now cook simple food and it looks gorgeous - Italian style. I LOVE our table top too, it instantly takes me back to this beautiful part of planet earth. Grazie melle Cosmolena! PS. The only criticism is that the signature is a bit too big imho. Would have preferred they were signed on the back and numbered.
  • Wonderful selection, very helpful staff, beautiful designs, we love every piece we added to our collection. Their artisans are very highly skilled. Whole package came foam infused and packed so well we could barely open the package, very well protected for int'l shipping. Thank you and love our pieces❤️❤️❤️
  • Giusy, who told me her grandparents started this business, was very helpful. The large beautiful bowl and smaller bowl were sent fast and incredibly secured with foam. It came unscratched. Wish they had a website.
  • We had to use the bathroom and when we went down stairs we were overwhelmed with the beautiful and unique pieces ... we were in a hurry and so I really regret not buying at least one piece of a set of dishes I fell in love with. Very expensive but beautiful and the owners were very accommodating! They had an abundance and of all the ceramic places we went it was one of the most unique, especially with their color schemes ! Love love LOVE IT,!
  • BUYER BEWARE!!! I lost $2600 on a botched order that they refused to correct. On our honeymoon in 2010 my husband and I bought a beautiful ceramic tabletop from Cosmolena, which arrived weeks later broken in half. They made arrangements to send another one and I asked them to send a photo of the tabletop to ensure that they remembered to write our names into the design (instead of on a banner as they suggested - we found the banner to be too much and wanted something more subtle). They'd forgotten to do that on the first one so I wanted to make sure it was on the replacement. When they sent me the photo of the tabletop, they'd put the names in a banner, so I sent an email to flag the mistake, asked them to correct it, and asked them not to send this table. They shipped it anyway AFTER they received my email. I contacted the shipping company to put a hold on the shipment. They couldn't do it, so I refused shipment when it arrived, stating it was not the correct order. I then contacted my credit card company, who could also do nothing, stating it was a vendor issue, not a credit card issue. In short, I lost $2600. No table, no refund. The store is delightful but a DISASTER to deal with if anything goes wrong.

Where to stay in Ravello

Most accommodations in Ravello remain small but cozy bed and breakfasts housed in buildings typical of the area. Almost every street in town abounds with options, although the absolute heart of town--around Duomo Ravello--represents the most popular place to stay. If you want to enjoy Ravello's iconic seaside views and don't mind a steep uphill walk to get to the center of town, stay at one of the hotels lining the zigzagging Via Giovanni Boccaccio.
