The food is very good, tasty, fresh. Nice selection of local dishes. Went twice in a row, for the food and for the view. Spectacular location on a terrace overlooking the town and the sea. Can't wait to go back!

The food and service were excellent, good wine selection, amazing views from any table. A very relaxing dinner. Much better than food, service, and prices at the beach level restaurants. Highly recommend, linguini with lobster was great, as was local wine from Ravello.

I have to disagree with the previous reviewer, I found the pizza I had at this restaurant absolutely delicious! Don't be put off, it's clearly a wonderful restaurant as per the other reviews, and we had a great experience there. Very reasonably priced and a relaxed atmosphere, I would definitely recommend it.

Location is super with the best views, thats it, the rest was very forgettable, and the pizza a shocking soggy mess, the staff perform in a cold miltary style with presumably the owner watching every move and euro! Couldn't wait to leave!

The view from the terrace of this restaurant is the best! You have a panorama of both Positano, the coastline and the sea. In the evening you witness the beautiful sunset while eating a delicious fish, pasta or pizza. You pay a little more than average, but it's totally worth it.

Wow, this restaurant has a great view! The view is exceptional. When I had stopped by to make reservations earlier in the day, they had asked me to come back later because it looked like rain and they weren't sure how much seating they'd have that evening. While we were able to make our reservations for later, it did storm... More

The restaurant has a great view. Food is ok at best. Make reservation if you want a good spot. Try Not to eat the raw foods. Shef does Not know how to prepare properly. We both got sick from the tuna tartare and wasted 2 good days of our short vacation. We went back to the restaurant to tel them... More
