Relaxing spot in the heart of Positano

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... read more

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

We came here for dinner after a day touring the town of Amalfi. Our plans were some what disrupted so we ended up not having a dinner reservation for the night. The food was good. We ordered about 4-5 different items and enjoyed them all. We had some type of typical steak salad dish, I can't remember what is was... More

If you are planning to spend time in Positano, please be sure to have a meal here! This was the best food that we ate during our 10-day trip to Italy. We ended up eating here twice - both times excellent food and service. The owner and serving staff were very friendly. We highly recommend ordering the spaghetti and meatballs... More

…yes... including Italy. A small restaurant with a limited but perfect menu. Friendly attentive service. Near a beautiful church that has wonderful concerts. A quite spot near the beach area.

Charming owner who provided stellar recommendations. We were a bit hesitant to go, assuming that the central location would mean subpar food, but that wasn’t the case... great dining and convenient!

Many thanks to the owner who gave us warm and personal service, with very good food. Particularly liked the rolled stuffed beef plate.

Nico, the owner, made our evening with a very special meal in mid-November when most other restaurants are closed. Warm enough to sit outside in the lovely courtyard, which was quite romantic. The vegetable soup was outstanding and the eggplant - both sandwich and entree - were the best meal we had in Italy. Nico's recommended wine, Falerno del Massico,... More

We went here on our last night and wished we had visited sooner. I'd recommend it over the bright lights on the beach front every time. The food is excellent value for money and really good Italian fare and the owner is really friendly (especially if you like rugby!) When we return to Positano, we certainly won't be waiting until...

Love this place, loved the food, and loved Nicco. Try Nicco's uncle's recipe for (I can't remember the exact name on menu...something like Cesare fettucini). It's great....carpaccio with onions and wine and parmesan.
