Simply amazing. My husband and I made 8 pm reservations at this restaurant and were blown away by the view, we could have sat at our table all evening. The food was good, but not our favorite. However, the service was top notch. The price is a bit more than your standard restaurant, but the view makes it worth it.... More

Having visited Positano once a year for the past seven years, I was always intimidated of Le Sirenuse and La Sponda. Not because of the Michellin star, as I've treated myself to several award-winning and worthy meals over the years, but because the hotel and restaurant are renowned for elegance and celebrity clientele. I am neither a celebrity nor do... More

My husband and I reserved an outdoor table at La Sponda to kick off our honeymoon in Positano. Make no mistake, this restaurant is super romantic and charming. The views are simply spectacular and the decor is lovely. However, despite a wonderful ambiance, we were very disappointed that the food did not match the restaurant's atmosphere. After reading several positive... More

I booked a table at La Sponda for my friend's birthday during our holiday in Positano. It was a delightful and thoroughly indulgent evening that we enjoyed immensely. The location is excellent...in the elegant Le Sirenuse hotel with the restaurant overlooking the sea. We opted for the six course tasting menu with wines which gave us a great experience of... More

We had a wonderful blue lobster and John Dory fish. The chef surprised us with a fennel dish cooked in syrup with lemon sorbet for dessert. It was wonderful. My only complaint is that it was outrageously expensive. Otherwise it was a great meal. The view is amazing and the service was wonderful.

Let's get one thing out of the way. If your not prepared to spend at least 300 euro on dinner then I suggest to go somewhere else. I booked this restaurant to celebrate our engagement. I'm not normally a fancy restaurant person, nor do I ever consider spending this amount on a dinner, but I made an exception this 1... More
