My husband and I went for lunch to this quaint spot, most of the seating is outside and away from the bustle, yet very close to the beach and church. The owner was amazing and working his butt off. I think we had the best spaghetti and meatballs ever at this restaurant. We also ordered the eggplant parmesan which was... More

This was a seriously great find! It was my absolute favourite dining experience in Positano. This place is sort of a hidden gem. I say "sort of" because it's actually located in what is a busy tourist area through the day (shops all around and not far from the tourist office) but it's a quiet area at night. Most tourists...

This little restaurant is tucked away in a back street near the Tourist Office. Friendly staff. We had a lovely lunch. Seems to be popular with Italians, Good selections of wine. Home made deserts. This place is well worth a visit and not too expensive. Well worth a visit.

We had read reviews of this place prior to our stay in Positano, so it was on our 'radar'.. we found it easily on our first evening. It's on the little street that runs behind Chez Black and Tre Sorelle on the beachfront. So - no sea views here but it has such a pretty, fairy-light lit outdoor area. We... More

We had lunch here on a whim, as we happen to be nearby. I had a delicious eggplant parm and some wonderful wine with great service. It was a lovely lunch with great service. They even had wifi for us to use!

We have stayed in a Positano before and walked past, without noticing it. During a recent stay we were walking for somewhere to eat she stumbled across it. It is in a nice quiet quadrant with good seating and a really nice relaxed atmosphere. Just at the foot if the lower church steps. We liked it immediately. The food was... More

A lovely little bar / restaurant. Made very welcome indeed. Manager and staff were lovely. Only a small place with a small number of tables inside and out. Well shaded. Infact went to Positano for a day trip and ended up here twice it was so nice! ;0)

Only a few tables (inside and outside), but great service, ideal hidden setting and delicious drinks. Will be back the next time in Positano.
