Passed this place on a few occasions and the menu looked good and not too overpriced. We visited on a Monday evening and it was busy and we hadn't booked so tried our luck. Most of the nice seats with good views were taken so we were offered second row or other side, not knowing what that was, we looked... More

If I had to rate the restaurant on food and service alone I would have probably given it four stars. The views from the front line seats more than make up for the average food. Very reasonable prices too. Service was attentive, the pace was very good, and there were always enough waiters around that you did not have to... More

I think the title pretty much captures the experience. We were the 2nd table there. Our entrees came out 15 mins after our apps, and after our entrée was cleared.... nothing. 20 minutes of nothing g. Our waiter disappeared. He came back to the table next to us and apologized for their late meal and then ran off without checking... More

This restaurant really delivered on what we were after. We had no reservation but got a good table at 9pm on a Saturday. Food was excellent. Service was attentive and friendly. Highlights were the tuna tartare and the lemon tart for desert. Highly recommend this restaurant for dinner. Total bill was 88 euro for 2.5 courses and a bottle of... More

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.
