We stayed at Covo, and ate lunch here a couple of times. The food was simple, clean and delicious. Highly recommended.

The restaurant had a great view of the water and the food was very good! It is expensive, but every one in the party enjoyed their food.

Wonderful dinner in a breathtaking location. VERY ROMANTIC! We had risotto and pasta, antipasto and desert. Each course was delcious and the waitor recommened we have a full bottle of wine as opposed to 2 glasses to save money. Great service

We decided to try here as most of the other restaurants on the sea front were more like casual pizza places. This restaurant were happy to do something special for me, as I am a vegetarian, and nothing was too much trouble. The service was very good, and best of all there was live music from a lady playing a... More

We took a short walk from our hotel to this seafront restaurant.We were quickly seated with a nice table with a great view of the beach.We did not pre-book ,but that was not a problem.Food was well presented and delicious.It was a little pricey but you must expect that in Positano ,because of it's position.

Made a reservation for dinner early in the day. That evening our table was in the center of the balcony with our name on it. We were able to watch the sunset and the moon rise. Four courses of unique Italian specialities. I chose the recommended menu. But my husband described his likes to the waiter. Then the waiter chose... More

We ate in the beachside area of this restaurant, on 3 occasions during our recent holiday in Positano and weren't disappointed on any of them. Food was lovely, especially the pasta dishes and the head waiter for that area was very friendly and helpful. A lovely location to eat and watch the world go by! Very reasonable, price wise too,...

A local blogger recommended this spot as the best pizza in Positano and they did not disappoint. You have the option of dining in or get pizza for take-away - we did both . Make sure you get the Margherita di bufala and enjoy a her beachside while you wait for your takeaway.

A great restaurant with impeccable service and food. We loved hearing the mandolin and singing guitarist with delicious food while enjoying a break taking view of the sea. I suggest making a reservation for dinner as it seems this is a restaurant in high demand.

Six of us had dinner here the other night. It really is something that should be saved for a special occasion as the service is very good, the food quite superb and the price reflects that. The restaurant is right on the Positano beach so it offers good views of the harbor and swimming beaches. The only downside of the... More
