My husband and I just didn't love this restaurant. The service and ambiance is nice, but other than that the food was mediocre and quite forgettable. The appetizers, pasta dish and pizza were all equally bland. We've had nothing but excellent food during our stay in Positano, but this just wasn't one of them.

We loved our total and overall experiences in Positano, on our first visit, but when our friends offered a "date night out" for just we two, this is where we went (upon recommendations) and it met all of our expectations. For unrelated reasons we started a little early, and the dining rooms were essentially empty upon arrival - oops?! -... More

Having seen this place recommended on Tripadvisor we made a reservations whilst in Positsno last week. . It was superb so we went again during our visit. The restaurant is away from the general bussle of Positano so it was very quiet and tranquil and if you make a reservation a car will collect you and return you to Positsno.... More

They treated my husband and I to complementary champagne because it was our honeymoon. Very friendly and romantic atmosphere. They also pick you up and drop you off. Great food with a customizable menu.
