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.

I was lucky enough to eat at La Sponda this past Saturday for a wedding reception. We got fabulous views, a delightful mandolin and guitar duo serenading us all evening, excellent service and great food and wine (and limoncello!). I loved the Lobster caprese as well as the black bowtie pasta with a seafood miste but really - everything tasted... More

Lets get past the obvious - Outstanding ambiance, spectacular views, amazing attention to detail, service no equal and the soul of Positano imbedded in the experience- love is in the air.. Mandolin and guitar duo serenaded us all evening while we enjoy a Michelin Guide 1 star experience. Movie stars & royalty have dinned here for 25 years; so it... More

The views are breathtaking and the food is superb, the best place in Positano to eat and whilst I wouldn't particularly comment on toilets but they are the most exquisite I have ever been in.

How would you like a 10 course dinner with enough romance to bring tears to your eyes? Well worth the price for the exceptional service and atmosphere. It was our wedding anniversary and they went out of their way to make the evening magical. The food was imaginative and above all, delicious! We enjoyed the chefs menu with out the... More

We arrived for lunch after a three hour hike around the mountain and were a little grungy. Nevertheless, we were warmly received and given a lovely table with incredible views. I had the linguini puttanesca which may have been the best dish I had in my two weeks in Italy (maybe a little pricey, but you don't mind paying when... More

Incredibly beautiful place with spectacular views. Probably the most beautiful restaurant I have ever visited. We had drinks there, while enjoying the sunset. Extremely kind staff.

This place is divine, it almost feels like you’re in a movie. First, make sure you arrive at the hotel at least an hour before dinner reservation. If you’re not a hotel guest you’ll want to spend as much time as possible on these beautiful grounds. The hotel balcony bar is perfect for savouring the best views of Positano town... More
