My Husband and I were in Positano for our honeymoon and had made a reservation for La Sponda from before we even left Canada. That night was one of the best of our whole honeymoon. From the restaurant light up by candlelit the men singing and playing guitars and the breathtaking view looking out onto the ocean on a beautiful... More

With only candles and the moonlight the diner was great. The food was excellent, the service elegant, effficient and amiable. The place to eat for an anniversary or anything else to celebrate. Ask for a table on the terrasse

Let's get this out of the way to start. If you're not willing to pay > 350 € for a meal! no matter how fantastic the experience, don't bother going to La Sponda. However, for a special occasion, you won't find a better experience. The view, oh, the view. They boast the best view in Positano, and they do not... More

My husband & I ate at Ristorante La Sponda earlier in July to celebrate our 50th anniversary. We agreed that the evening was the highlight of our two week trip throughout Italy. (We at at several Michelin Star restaurants on our trip; all excellent, but not La Sponda.) The setting, on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, was unbelievably beautiful.... More

First impression of the restaurant is of the beauty of Positano. Spectacular view across the bay at western town and up towards moon set over Le Tese. We took advantage of the tasting menu with the wine pairing. The food was inventive and interesting while remaining true to the local style of the cucina of Campania. The wine pairing was... More

I can tell, from the beginning, that everything was perfect. Perfect evening in somewhere next to paradise. Luxurious, wonderful view, tpo class restaurant, perfect staff, wonderful sommelier, divine food. You feel above the clouds. Every person from the staff was spectacular. Try the tasting menu and the advices from the sommelier. Already missing those days. Bravo, la Sponda!

When I read some of the reviews about La Sponda I was a little concerned but I need not have been. Yes it is eye wateringly expensive but it is a Michelin star restaurant in perhaps the most prestigious spot on the whole Amalfi coast. Service was exceptional and all done with a smile and also helpful information. Our head... More

We had not read any reviews of the place before coming, trusting in a restaurant of a five-star hotel, and Michelin-starred to boot, but I have to say that we were disappointed for the exhorbitant price we paid. The view was amazing and romantic but no amount of view should or does make up for what is on your plate... More
