This was one of our favorite restaurants in Positano. It was Italian style comfort food at its reasonably priced best. We ate there three times during our visit and was pleased each time. The lemon sorbet is heavenly. The staff are smiling and friendly.

Another great place to eat, the staff are super friendly and the food really good, try their homemade pasta with fish yum. We went twice and if not for a thunder storm that kept us in our hotel would have gone a third time. Eat on the street it's full of atmosphere we loved it.

My second favorite restaurant with excellent food, service, wine list and atmosphere. We dined outside, the view is blocked by neighboring building, and despite that we loved it. We were a party of 5, all got different entrees and everyone was pleased. Menu was varied, more than pasta and seafood, and prices were far better than the beach area restaurants.... More

I went at Saraceno d'oro with my girlfriend for a lunch last month when we arrived in Positano. Pizza is amazing and also the home made pasta with seafood is very good. Prices are in line with the Amalfi coast average. The service is very good, the waiter girl and the young boy owner are very kind and funny. We... More

We tried to get into this restaurant one night, however we were quite hungry, and the wait was too long... Ajoining restaurants were empty, so we knew they must have been worth visiting again the other night... We were glad we made a booking and returned, we had a fantastic seafood salad, which was made up of marinated, octopus, mussels... More

We stayed at a hotel close by and wanted take-out dinner to enjoy on our beautiful terrace! The pizza at this restaurant was delicious. We had a sit down dinner another night here and enjoyed the food and the service. We sat outside and like many Positano restaurants we were mere feet away from the passing cars. Such is life... More

Pepe was our waiter ( probably one of the owner's sons) very vocal and helpful. We enjoyed a very good dinnner , fresh and very well cooked . Prices - like the most of Positano : not so cheap, not so cher, affordable.

Authentic Italian restaurant, very helpful and friendly staff. They have a $2 cover charge but you get bread and shot of Lemoncillo gratis. They also do great takeaway pizza.
