Fantastic food!

Friendly staff, Good tasty food at reasonable prices. We loved it here, it didn't matter what we ordered, fancy meal or Pizza, still treated the same. Must recommend Limoncello Tiramasu, fantastic.

We had the pleasure of dining here for lunch today. The owner of the restaurant picked us up from the Centre of Sorrento and brought us back up to his restaurant. We were greeted warmly and served promptly. Our waitor was really helpful and recommended the best dishes to try. We had fresh seafood pasts, pizzas, bruchetta and octopus. Everything... More

Nice family-owned restaurant in Positano. Stayed there a couple of days ago. We were given a table on their gorgeous terrace with a nice view on the sea and a great setting. Loved the pasta with ricciola and the scialatielli with clams and porcini mushrooms. On top of it all, the friendly and familiar atmosphere will make you feel at... More

Few nights ago we were exploring around the area for places for dinner and was about to give up when we saw this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We decided to have a pizza and an appetizer to share as we were not that hungry. Pizza was huge and delicious and the seafood appetizer was fresh and... More

4 of us visited and were picked up by the restaurant and enjoyed lovely fresh fish, pasta and pizza. The Prosecco was great value, as was the house white - very easy drinking for €6 a litre. Will definitely return before the end of our holiday. Only reason not to rate as 5, the service was a little slow at... More

We were a party of 12 celebrating an anniversary and we had a nice table out on the deck. Beautiful at night to look out over the bay of Naples! Our group ordered everything from salad, to grilled whole fish, pasta and pizza. Everything was wonderful and the service excellent. We took the local bus to arrive at the restaurant... More

This is not a fancy restaurant. If you want fancy go down to next2 down the road. This is an informal, like eating at home restaurant but with much better cooking than home. Excellent Italian dishes: Scialatelli with seafood, linguine gamberi, risotto marinara, stuffed pumpkin flowers, mixed grill of fish, fried mixed seafood, etc. All excellent - the kitchen is...

In an overpriced city like Positano, this place had great selection and quality at a fair price. They will send a car for free to pick you up and take you home, so don't forget to ask.
