Sundays are Italian Family Day!

It looked to me that the owner who was present had reserved all the front row outdoor table for his regular customers which were mostly Italian families. I thought it was a nice touch. I had the Sunday special of Mussels and Pasta and it was very good. The muscles were very fresh!

Lovely range of dishes and pizzas and pastas. Really good range of drinks. Make sure you have an aperol spritz before dinner. The staff are all friendly and quite cheeky. I went there with a girlfriend and they brought us a heart shaped pizza, then proceeded to break our heart... as they said when they cut it. The owner also... More

We dined here on our last night in Positano. Despite being packed, the wait for a table was not too long, maybe 10 minutes. We were promptly seated and our waiter was with us shortly after. We were pleased to see that they had the wine we had enjoyed so much the night before at a previous restaurant. We shared... More

3 pizzas, a plate of chewy veal (tepid) and a portion of courgettes. 4 soft drinks. Bill was €100 Food and service average and unless you are a big spender, buying bottles of wine and several courses the service is very inattentive. However this is Positano, on the beach front. It doesn't have to be great it will always be... More

This is a popular spot on the beach, but no problem for us because our family of four were ravenous after sightseeing in Amalfi/Ravello all day, and sat down to eat at 5:45, when there were mostly empty tables. Thankful that drinks/water arrived so quick. Super friendly staff took special care of us, realizing that my husband was only one... More

We were directed here by our tour driver. The food was fine but the service was really slow. We only had a couple hours in Positano and it took an hour and fifteen minutes for our lunch.

On three counts: 1. SERIOUSLY OVER PRICED 2. TERRIBLE FOOD 3. EVEN WORSE SERVICE!!! Told to wait for my side dish after main meal already delivered because all of the staff were eating!!! at least 6waiters!!!! Perfect example why service should never be included world wide!! Ruined our day in Positano, won't return!!! RUDE RUDE RUDE!

Sixteen of us ate here for lunch one day. Good service and food. All the meals served together. Always looked busy when we walked past, which is a good sign.
