I savored every bite

I went there alone. Not a place for a solo dinner. Beautiful view. Over 400 real candles (not fake) in the restaurant. Fantastic service. But the food...I ate slowly to relish every bite. It is not inexpensive, but it was worth every Euro. The food in Positano was great. This is a place even the... read more

This michelin starred restaurant is a true diamond on the Amalfi coast. The setting is amazing, one of the best I've ever been. My partner and I took the seasonal menu of 7 courses (€120 without wine). The mackarel was moundwatering and the risotto (which we asked for instead of linguine) was better than anywhere else. The staff was friendly... More

All the candles, the stunning view, the music....phenomenal! My husband went to the restaurant earlier in the day, to request a table near the window indicating... More

However, when we went there recently we expected the same perfect experience but did not quite get it. Being familiar with the hotel and the restaurant I reserved a dinner for ourselves and another couple traveling with... More

The restaurant professional hospitality induces a very special atmosphere of elegance and high standard. The place is illuminated with about 400 candles and the view from it (to the bay) is a perfect decoration. We chose the tasting menu which offered the best choices of the chef. The appetizers, ante pasti, and pasta were excellent as well as the fish.... More

We thought the food was great. The place is over priced though for the quality. We loved the live music and overall ambiance of the place. The service was also pretty good, but often times they were too busy and not always attentive. They were a bit rigid on trying to make dishes for vegetarians (usually very good restaurants go...

La Sponda is in Hotel Le Sirenuse which is where we stayed. We had a celebratory dinner at La Sponda. We were seated overlooking the Mediterrean and enjoyed fabulous food and wine.
