Car service from our B&B directly to the restaurant. Very attentive staff, excellent wine list. Known for some of the best pizzas in Positano. Full dinner menu as well. Well worth a visit!

It's well worth the short trip from the centre of town to this low-key, friendly restaurant that delivers high quality food.

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
