I loved the location of this place, on a corner, with excellent views and a feeling of comfort. Flowers on the table and round the area are lovely. My sea bass with Orange and lemon sauce was simply delicious, served with a delicate salad and breads to mop the delicious juices. Chilled wine was good and the coffee excellent. I... More

We had dinner here last night and it was one of the worst dining experiences of my life. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress who took our orders and made us all laugh, and then we never saw her again. We waited over an hour for our appetizers while drinking the most god-awful bottle of wine from their... More

Fiance had the pizza (his favorite of about 10 pizzas on our trip to Positano and Rome); I had the seafood risotta (also my favorite dish of the 10-trip).

So we booked a table here purely as it was round the corner from our guesthouse. When we arrived we got really good service and we were excited about our meal. However it got busier and busier as the evening progressed and whilst they were happy to take in all the guests they simply couldn't cope with the amount of... More

The restaurant is perfectly located in the middle of the mountain, with nice view. The food is delicious and the price is totally reasonable. Do not miss it!!

I loved the quiet atmosphere, elegant table settings with candles, great staff and quick service. I ordered a salad which was so fresh, selected leaf by leaf, a good mix of different varieties, just perfect. We had a tasting of three different pizzas, since we were three of us. They brought pizzas already cut in slices and we let the... More

Alessandro and his family and employees treated us like family and the food was excellent. I will go back any time I stay in Positano.
