Located in a VERY pricey hotel, this restaurant is also pretty expensive. That being said, if you are willing to shell out a few extra bucks for fantastic food and a great dining experience, it is worth it. This hotel is not easy to get to if you are staying anywhere near the beach--it is quite the trek, literally up... More

We were staying at the hotel. As guests, we had met many of the wait staff through other meals and wine and cheese tastings. The staff is warm, service is distinguished and the food is great. We went for the tasting menu and was impressed. This is the most romantic and best restaurant in Positano.

This is one of the finest restaurants My wife and I have ever been to. The food and service were flawless. They have gentleman that walk around playing violin and singing. If you want a fine dining experience this is the place to go.

We requested a table on the terrace by the railing overlooking the sea and honored our request. The atmosphere was spectacular; 400+ candles in the restaurant. Our table looked down on the dome of the Santa Maria Assunta Church and sea in the distance. Soon after we were seated ~ 8:00pm the church bells rang....so beautiful! Then a fireworks demonstration... More

For the better part of 9 years, I have been waiting to go to La Sponda, and although some would consider it extremely pricey, it was worth every minute of the wait!! The food was delectable, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere enchanting! Make this your special dinner...it is a perfect way to end the vacation on a high note!
