As our visit to Positano was very off-season (mid-January) not many restaurants were open, and this was one of two our hotel (Pasitea Art Hotel) noted was open/nearby. The mixed TA reviews were a little concerning, but we found quite the opposite to what many others said i.e. most of the other patrons seemed to be Italian. The service was... More

Our host at Villa Maria Antonietta recommended this restaurant. We were tired from our trip from Ravello but when he mentioned that there would be a shuttle to and from C'era una Volta, we decided to try this restaurant. And we are glad that we decided to go. We were welcomed very warmly by their wait staff Federico. Although the... More

We loved that they sent a car to pick us up and brought us back after a wonderful seafood dinner. Their service staff was outstanding especially our waiter Frederico

We had four straight dinners here (sit in and take out) while on our trip to Positano. It's simply the best value we found in Positano. The Mussels were very fresh. Pizza was delicious. Desserts were really wonderful. Service was friendly. We still dream about the lemon cake with limoncello. We had big meals with wine, etc, and the price... More

We went here based on TA peoples reviews. They were nice enough to pick us up from town, though as soon as we pull up you realize it is a rundown old restaurant and they take you into the backyard which resembles my grandparents old run down house. They sit you down and give you a menu with all their... More

Definitely worth taking their shuttle for the food...and the view...and the incredibly friendly staff. We really loved this restaurant. Price was amazingly reasonable too.

Overlooking the mountainous views and the sea we had a multi course meal. We still can't decide which part was our favourite. It was all fabulous. Thanks to Federico and staff.

We had dinner with our family here one evening as it was close to the villa we were staying in. The service here was warm and helpful, the food was great, I really enjoyed the pizza! The shrimp in pepper and the lobster spaghetti was also good! Would return here again.

The server was very nice and they will pick you up from your hotel, which is very handy in Positano. I had the special which was steak with cheese on it. It turned out to be a steak salad, which was ok. My wife had pasta with fish of the day but it was so so. They also had the... More
