Had the chefs tasting menu with the wine pairing. Not cheap, but well worth the price. If you want to splurge on one great meal this is the one. One of the best I have ever had. Great service as well. Chose this restaurant on trip advisor recommendations, and was not disappointed.

La Sponda is a beautifully decorated and ideally located restaurant in Positano. Our entire experience was outstanding from our arrival at the hotel in which the restaurant is located to our departure. The service was attentive and impeccable, the food was outstanding and the entire dining experience was as memorable as one would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. It... More

Having dined in many high end restaurants in several countries we were expecting our Michelin star experience at La Sponda to be somewhat amazing and a true culinary delight given the positive reviews. My wife and I were disappointed to say the least as this dinner was to celebrate one week of marriage and an extra honeymoon treat to ourselves.... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at La Sponda earlier this month. The setting is stunning, candlelit dining room - with tables discretely located over looking Positano and the bay. The food was worthy of the Michelin star, a number of amuse bouches were served between courses, all of which were delicious. The wine list is extensive and... More

Our wedding reception at La Sponda was nothing short of spectacular. The service was stellar and the (many, many courses) meal was exquisite. La Sponda has one of the most romantic ambiences with hundreds of candles and a gorgeous view of the sea. But, it's the staff that made our evening unforgettable. In addition to flawless service, they were a... More

My wife and I had dinner at La Sponda this past week while staying in Positano. It was apparent that guests of the hotel were treated better by the wait staff. My wife and I were forgotten about while another table right next to ours with several patrons that were staying at the hotel were waited on before us. The... More

I have eaten at other Michelin starred restaurants, so I came in with very high expectations. In my opinion, they made some very amateurish mistakes you would not expect from a restaurant of this caliber. In addition the staff came off as being quite stiff opposed to being at ease and genuinely passionate about what they are doing. As we... More

I made reservations a few weeks early for a birthday surprise for my husband. I was a bit disappointed when we showed up that they didn't have a table ready. We made due, yet ended up at a table overlooking the sea coast. It couldn't have been more beautiful. The service was very good. We had a couple of drinks... More

We ate at the Sponda on the evening of Thursday Sept 11th. We were first shown into the champagne bar where we drank Prosecco and Bellini which were served with nice nibbles. The restaurant does not start service until 8pm - when we entered the dining room we were "wowed" by just how pretty and romantic the room is, and... More

I was expecting a little bit more of it, but it's worth the visit. The price is fair for what you get, the decoration and ambience is astonishing, one of the most beautiful restaurants i've ever seen. Service is perfect. The carpaccio as the appetizer was incredible. The check wasn't even 200 euros, very good for this kind of restaurant.
