The three of us walked in on a Friday night without a booking and we were lucky that there was a spare table. The waiters were very helpful and friendly and the menu provided plenty of options, let alone the list of additional specials. At the table we had the Seafood antipasta, pasta and pizza, all were very good and... More

We went here based on a recommendation from another couple we met. The meal was wonderful. From the starters to the fresh fish to the wine recommendations. We absolutely loved it and were able to sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous sunset.

We are just spending 2 days in Positano and found them after some searching on Tripadvisor. The first good thing was an offer for free shuttle service to/from our hotel in the centre of Positano. After we got there we received a warm welcome by a charming young man whose name escaped me. Anyway the menu was carefully explained in... More
