Amazing service!

We will never forget this charming place in Positano. One of the best eggplant parm but most importantly the service will never be forgotten. We had arrived to Positano late and all restaurants were closed and were serving only drinks. The owner of this place, opened up his kitchen at 1am cooked... read more

We were looking for a simple Italian meal. The food was average at best but the waiter was very nice. While the location is good, the food was OK and too expensive for what you get.

Decided to try the place out after a local at Positano recommended it to me. Charming little restaurant with indoors and outdoors seating. Slightly at a more secluded corner from the noisy/busy main beach promenade. Great service and good wine recommendation. I like that their menu has a lot more pasta choices than just the usual boring ones. I tried... More

We read the reviews of this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised when we were joined, not by fellow tourists, but locals. Families with kids. Spaghetti and meatballs were just as advertised. Great! We also ordered the grilled rolled meat, with vegetables and cheese. It too was another hit.

We visited here after reading reviews raving over the spaghetti and meatballs. It is small inside as others mention but there are plenty of tables outside. I had the meatballs which were very good and my partner had fettuccine and beef in a red wine sauce which was excellent. We had a bottle of the local Ischia red wine which... More

This restaurant is in a quiet courtyard slightly away from the main beach. We chanced upon it as we made our way back to our hotel from the beach and enjoyed our food so much that we ended up coming back on our last evening again. The menu is simple and doesn't have a huge variety but the main staples... More

We ate here after reading reviews on trip advisor. It is a fab little restaurant (it had only 3 indoor tables) with probably some of the best food we ate whilst in Positano. The guy serving us was fantastic and made some really good recommendations to us. The other two tables in the restaurant were locals, which is always a... More

This was our first restaurant we visited in Positano and it was such a great way to start the trip. As has been mentioned in many reviews the spaghetti and meatballs are a must for someone in your party to have (but they may not want to share). My wife and I each ordered a serving and we are so...

The weather was overcast and cool so we wanted to sit inside. This place has only four tables for couples inside all of which are very close to the bar so it is all a bit cramped. Having said that, the staff were all very friendly and helpful. I had the 'rolled meat' which was tasty enough and my husband... More
