Amazing view and very nice pizza

The food was very good - totally loved the prosciutto and melon starter and the local Aglianico wine. Staff were nice but hardly speak any English.

People post about the views at this restaurant which are arguably the best in the city. What I was impressed with was the food. Decadent calamari salad with the freshest greens, lemons, garlic and olive oil and perfectly grilled vegetables. The prosciutto and melon were fresh and so tasty. The marbled meat just melts in your mouth. We stated here... More

We ate here on the first night of a 3 night stay in Positano, drawn by the restaurant's peerless views of the town and the sea below, especially from our table which was right on the edge of the terrace. It was a bit windy that night but the restaurant provided blankets which gave us some relief from the chill.... More

We were walking through the main street in Positano and found this place by chance, and we could not resist trying it. We asked for a table right on the edge of the terrace, where the view is the best, simply breathtaking. The food was very good and the service was attentive. There are not too many tables so a...
