We went to La Sponda for a friend's birthday dinner. The service was excellent and it was definitely a very classy place. There were lots of couples having romantic dinners and there were musicians that played at each table as well.

We've spent great time here! Nice service, nice food (gamberoni as appetizer, then spaghettoni... "amuse-bouche", champagne, wine, coffee and mini-dessert: everything was a pleasure in that five star atmosphere). One suggestion: when you offer champagne as a welcome it would be elegant that you specify you're not really "offering" it...

This restaurant was superb in every way. Excellent service by wonderful personable staff. We had the degustation menu and it was possibly the best I have even had. No gimmicks just fantastic food. The atmosphere is perfect overlooking the ocean and Positano. You must book ahead as always busy. A must!

The place is great, it has ok food, good atmosphere, wonderful views of Positano, but the best thing about this place has to be the service.
