We found this restaurant by accident having got off the SITA bus that goes from Sorrento to Amalfi and wandered down towards the beach. It was very good, authentic fare with lots of fish. Nice to get linen tablecloths. Had we started in the centre of Positano we may never have found it - but it was a great find,... More

This place has terrific service and delicious food that is also affordable, even if you are traveling on a tight budget you can still afford to have beautiful food :) It was recommended by our hotel owner and we went back numerous times for dinner. The staff were incredibly pleasant and we didn't have to wait long for our food.... More

We had lunch one day and dinner on another day and both meals were very good. Everyone in our party of four was completely satisfied.

Started with the seafood salad which was perfecto. My wife had a seafood pasta which was exceptional. I had anchovies marinated with onion, probably should have tried something else, but was feeling adventurous. Food was hot but not with the same taste as the seafood salad or pasta. We had lemon sorbet for dessert which was absolutely divine, best ever.... More

This restaurant is situated close to the Hotel Pasitea, where we stayed. It was so good we ate there twice. This is a family run business, the 3rd generation and they make you very welcome. The house wine is very good and reasonably priced at about 11 euros. In addition to the pasta and meat dishes they also make their... More

Just like the title says. Also charged us for our complimentary limoncello. Lots of good restaurants in Positano, I'd pass on this one and go to the one that's literally 100 feet down the street.

We had a lovely dinner here. The food was delicious. We started off with a simple green salad which we shared. My husband had homemde pasta with seafood and I had ravoli fillled with ricotta and spinach and served with a mushroom creme sauce. Both dishes were top notch. We split probably the best tartufo we ever had for dessert.... More

We ate here twice on our short stay in Positano. We liked it so much the first time that we decided to have our last dinner there. It is a good family restaurant ran by a very hard working family. The son livens up the place with his smile and jokes. Very reasonably priced too.

Wow during our 10 day stay in town I think we ate here 7 times. It kept getting better and better. The wonderful family that runs it made us so welcome and the food was fantastic. Kept trying different dishes and they all lived up to our expectations. A highlight of our trip for sure.
