Another lovely meal

My wife and i and visited here Sunday 24th Jan. We had been before and knew it would be good. We hadn't booked but they managed to seat us near to the bar area in a busy restaurant. We both had starters and mains and were more than happy with our meals. We had a bottle of Rose to accompany... read more

Ate here one evening after a recommendation by our taxi driver. Our meal was ok, but certainly nothing special...we were expecting more reading recent reviews. My starter of scallops wasn't great...still cold and raw in the middle. For main course I had steak which was a little over cooked. My partner had chicken wings to start then a pizza which... More

We were recommended this restaurant by friends, we were not disappointed. Fantastic food, atmosphere and staff! We were made to feel special throughout. The fillet Rossini was amazing! Well worth a visit, but I would recommend you book well in advance as they get booked very quickly.

I recommend booking as it is quite a small place. The food was authentic Italian and very reasonably priced. It was recommended by the hotel we stayed in, but these kind of recommendations can be a bit hit and miss but I am so glad we took the advice of the hotel staff. Not only was the food great but...

My grandson had booked the upstairs room at Villa Positano for his 30th birthday. It was a tight squeeze for 36 guests but we were accommodated on two very long tables. The whole evening was amazing. All our orders were taken by very efficient staff and we didn't have long to wait before the starters arrived followed by the main... More

Lovely authentic Italian restaurant, very good value for money. Staff are friendly and service attentive. Very good fresh fish and seafood and homemade pasta. Can't comment on the pizzas but they looked good too.

Went here with the wife on a Friday night in January. We tried booking before arrival but no one answered the phone during the week when we attempted to contact the restaurant. The restaurant was full but we thankfully got a table due to another couple finishing shortly after we arrived. The atmosphere in this restaurant is first class with... More
