Very enjoyable outdoor dining

We stumbled on this place while strolling through Positano near the marina. It was away from the crowded main street in a nice peaceful setting. The proprietor was friendly and helpful, and we had a very pleasant meal with good food and wine. We would return if in positano!

A great little bar with courtyard where you can also get a meal at economy prices. The owner Nico is a rugby fan and enjoys a chat about rugby if he is not too busy.

My husband and I were in Positano last September 2014 (sorry for delayed posting!) and stumbled across this restaurant. In truth, there aren't many places to eat in Positano, which is a shame! This was a lovely, simple restaurant with outdoor seating that we took advantage of. The wait staff were kind and helpful. We had the burger and Italian... More

We loved the food, service and setting so much we went back the next night. It's tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of the marina and main touristy restaurants, which is why we liked it so much. The service from the young man who saw us both nights was first-class. Delicious traditional tasty Italian food - the fish... More

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 something quick so we don't leave hungry. We... 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
