Deserves its reputation

We dined at most of the recommended spots in Positano, including Zass in our hotel, and I would say that Ristorante La Sponda was overall superior to Zass and deserving of its high status. The cuisine and service both showed considerable care and quality, enough to justify the price. I enjoyed the... read more

Celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary at La Sponda earlier this week and it met our high expectations. The hotel and restaurant are beautiful, and the flavors, presentation, and service were fantastic. The candles and live classical music were a really warm and nice touch. The attention to detail in all facets of the meal really shines. Would highly recommend... More

We didn't stay at Le Serenuse this time but we did eat dinner at their restaurant La Sponda. What a beautiful and elegant evening we experienced. From drinks on the veranda watching the sun set, to an amazing meal to that final sip of lemoncello this was our favorite dinner on a three week European tour. Friendly staff. Beautiful candle...

First let me start off saying the hotel is beautifully appointed, the views are beautiful and the staff was perfect! It was the food prep and presentation that does not warrant a star! I ordered the duck breast, that's what I got a solid Breast placed on my plate with a little decoration . My wife was not impressed with... More

On the 11th of May I was treated to an amazing belated Birthday Lunch at La Sponda. The service was excellent, the staff was very friendly and were happy to answer all of our questions. I loved it when the waiter rolled a table over with bottles of chilled Prosecco and Champagne, what a way to start any meal. I... More

Four of us (two couples) walked up to Le Sirenuse hotel from the centre of Positano at midday and enjoyed a superb leisurely lunch in La Sponda on its shady terrace overlooking the town. The numerous staff were friendly and very professional. The food, served on colourful local china was fresh and imaginatively presented. The ladies' loos, one floor down... More

Firstly, great location and scenery. Very good service and would have expected to have same based on reviews and number so staff on duty. While I was declined entry to the restaurant due to not wearing long trousers, I was dressed smart/casual.
