Beautiful setting, good food

Menu offers lovely choices, setting is lovely. The owner is wonderful. We ate there two nights had a fabulous waiter one night and one night was not as good of service. But would recommend it and will go back.

Arrived about 1930 and were able to get a table on the terrace with no problem. Lovely views, menu with variety, very friendly service. Had a spectacular, fresh seafood risotto and linguini with olive oil, capers and olives. May return again before we leave Positano.

Had a nice late lunch with friends. We had the grilled seabass, the fried fish platter, the marinated anchovies, the marinated vegetables, ravioli, wine and the seafood salad. For 4 person it was just below 200 euros. Nice place with good service and was clean.

Superb view from the deck of the beachfront and pier. A bit squishy but everyone wants to be at the front right? Delicious scallopine limone mopping up sauce with fresh crusty bread and washed down with a crisp local white wine.

Our first day in Positano and I was pleased to find this restaurant. This place had been recommended to us from our hotel manager in Cinque Terre and so glad he did. The food and service was brilliant, a place we will definitely revisit again whilst in Positano. View, service and food worth finding and even waiting for.

Unfortunately, the nice view of the beach is not matched by the food and cleanliness. Silverware set on the table was obviously used before with olive oil grease all over the fork and knife. This happened not in only one place setting but multiple. The waiter barely apologized. The restroom was dirty. That's always a bad sign. The food lacks... More

This restaurant looks over the main beach in Positano. Our food was excellent, the wait staff was excellent and it's in a great area! We will be back for sure.

Food is ok. Service was good (they will always offer either a bruschetta or limoncello). The desserts are most certainly not fresh.

On our first night in Positano, our hotel clerk recommended this restaurant. We were seated quickly and enjoyed a wonderful local fish dinner, with grilled vegetables and stuff zucchini blossoms. Limonchello was included.

Good food, great service, very good wine selections. The price of the fish specials was very high and 2 or 3 times other prices.
