Huge portions (we thought we were in the US). But the food was all good. Definitely get the rice ball - it was unlike anything that I've had.

Had fuselli with zucchini flowers which was delicious. lovely and creamy. The meatballs, fried fish and lamb that the others ate was all good too. The puddings were fabulous The waiters were very attentive and we had gret views overlooking the sea.

I've heard some amazing things about this place so my husband and I tried it for a very late lunch. It was pretty quiet when we went in, probably because of the time and there weren't a lot of people around. The waiter was polite - but not as friendly as many of the waitstaff at other restaurants we've tried.... More

This spot on the beach was large and extremely popular, for good reason. The food is good and the location perfect. Also, their gelateria nearby is the best in town.

Hands down the best place we came across. And so we went back again the next day! This place is also part hotel, located right at the beach. The pasta tasted fresh and delicious. The only seafood pasta I had that came with langoustine, scampi, mussles, round clams, razor clams and octopus. Fresh and tasty!

We have just come to the end of a week in lovely Positano. We ate at a number of restaurants for lunch or dinner, varying our venue each time. These were predominately near the beach, as this is where we were staying. We tried wandering uphill to seek our some alternatives, but in September they seemed a bit empty and... More

We came here for lunch on our short stay in Positano, and ate outside with a splendid view of the beach. Service was great for the most part, and the food was fantastic - solid Italian cuisine. My girlfriend had some great seafood, and I had the pesto pasta; we kept it simple.

A really friendly, welcoming restaurant in a great location. They even have a window looking into the kitchen from the street so you can see the chefs working. Francesco (our waiter) and his lads work very hard and are great people. Nothing pretentious or stuffy.

It is the best cooking class I have taken. Chef Andrea was very passionate about his work, he was very attentive to the participants, and extremely knowledgeable! The food was incredible and he gave us several options with what we can prepare with a basic sauce. This class comes complete with a cook book, a tool for making gnocci, and... More
