Let's get one thing out of the way. If your not prepared to spend at least 300 euro on dinner then I suggest to go somewhere else. I booked this restaurant to celebrate our engagement. I'm not normally a fancy restaurant person, nor do I ever consider spending this amount on a dinner, but I made an exception this 1... More

I've been fortunate enough to have eaten in many fine dining restaraunts around the world. La Sponda is my favourite. It wins hands down by getting 10/10 for food, service, views & ambience. My wife & I had two dinners there in July, and both were sublime. The white jacketed waiters, the 400 candles, & not forgetting the wonderful serenading... More

We were guests at Le Sirenuse, where the restaurant is located, and decided we couldn't miss the opportunity to try it. I'd never been to a Michelin starred restaurant before and didn't really know what to expect. Everything was perfect. The waiters were extremely attentive and the food was delicious. Perfect for romantic dinners and special occasions.

My Husband and I were in Positano for our honeymoon and had made a reservation for La Sponda from before we even left Canada. That night was one of the best of our whole honeymoon. From the restaurant light up by candlelit the men singing and playing guitars and the breathtaking view looking out onto the ocean on a beautiful... More

With only candles and the moonlight the diner was great. The food was excellent, the service elegant, effficient and amiable. The place to eat for an anniversary or anything else to celebrate. Ask for a table on the terrasse

Let's get this out of the way to start. If you're not willing to pay > 350 € for a meal! no matter how fantastic the experience, don't bother going to La Sponda. However, for a special occasion, you won't find a better experience. The view, oh, the view. They boast the best view in Positano, and they do not... More

My husband & I ate at Ristorante La Sponda earlier in July to celebrate our 50th anniversary. We agreed that the evening was the highlight of our two week trip throughout Italy. (We at at several Michelin Star restaurants on our trip; all excellent, but not La Sponda.) The setting, on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, was unbelievably beautiful.... More

First impression of the restaurant is of the beauty of Positano. Spectacular view across the bay at western town and up towards moon set over Le Tese. We took advantage of the tasting menu with the wine pairing. The food was inventive and interesting while remaining true to the local style of the cucina of Campania. The wine pairing was... More
