This place is a must! Actually we didn't know about this place at the first time, we would like to see Le Sirenuse and when we arrived we found out about this restaurant. The view from this place is magnificent, probably the best in Positano, so you must try to see it, at least come before lunch to have some... More

This was the most expensive dinner we had on her honeymoon tour of Italy. However it was one of the most delicious dinners we had. The linguine with clams was fantastic. The veal was the best piece of veal I had in a long time. They also gave you some extra appetizers and fantastic cookies with dessert. We would highly... More

We came to this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Very romantic setting, candlelit, gorgeous views and mandolin players. We had the tasting menu which was very good. If you've tried a number of fine dining tasting menus before you might not find it to be the best that you've ever had, but it was still thoroughly enjoyable.

My wife and I were lucky enough to walk in La Sponda without a Reservation, lucky as reservations are full for weeks before. Anyhow, we enter this magnificent terrace at the Le Sirenuse Hotel, kind and warm welcome to the restaurant with perfect seating by the edge. Welcoming prosecco, wonderful trio playing lovely music at the charm of candles and... More

This place nailed it for us from start to finish. It began on entrance where we were warmly greeted and seated. This place looks perfect and the view of course is a postcard. I have not seen better! The procedure from where you enter and up to where you are given the menu is flawless and clearly well tuned with... More

The trip advisor reviews I researched did not disappoint. This restaurant is the must romantic setting my husband and I have dined in 32 years of marriage. Seated outside to enjoy a magnificent view of Positano lit up at night was breathtaking. Servers were impeccably dressed and their service was perfection. Good food presentation was lovely and the live strolling... More

We went to La Sponda end of June 2015. We had booked long time in advance because we saw in an article that La Sponda was one of the 40 restaurants you had to go to at least once in your life... We had been to 3 other restaurants from that list and they were really amazing. No, La Sponda... More

We were seated in a overflow area since we were walk-ins. We appreciated their effort to try to accommodate but if you can't take someone just turn them away, We were on a covered patio area outside the restaurant. We were waited on by the young hostess who did her best, but unfortunately we took her recommendations which turned out... More
