We arrived rather late for lunch hours but, they were gracious to assist us. The have a lovely house red wine that went well with the very large caprese salad. We shared the salad and a meat pasta dish and still had food left. The wait staff spoke English and were helpful and kind. The views are... read more

Excellent eggplant Parm and seafood pasta. Service was also excellent. Family run, all were so warm and welcoming. Very accomodating in our quest for a late lunch, during a time when many establishments are closed in Praiano.

This little restaurant has astonishing views of the coast, the piazza and the church. We were late and arrive here to have one of the best fish meals i have ever had. Just grilled to perfection and with the local delicious limes it was to die for. The rest asked for pasta and pizza and were also happy with their... More

The topping was great but have to say was a bit disappointed with the thickness of the dough. For a Pizza in this area of Italy it should be so much better especially as they were charging top prices.

The view alone is worth the bill in my opinion, that said the meal was great but all the better was the house red (definitely request!).

The best outdoor spot in Praiano. Great terrace for lazy lunchtime looking out at the Bay of Sorrento and Positano. Evenings the lights twinkle in the distance whilst enjoying generous portions of pasta, pizza, steak and seafood. Very friendly staff. Recommended.

Love this place! Had mussels in tomato for lunch - a huge plate of them arrived and they were all beautiful. Husband had spaghetti and it was delicious. Very reasonably priced and friendly service. And amazing views of course.

We stumbled across this restaurant when we were on a coastal drive and needed to stop for lunch. What a find! The restaurant was packed but the service still managed to be relaxed and friendly. The spaghetti vongole was excellent and the bruschetta was delicious. We didn't have dessert but we were given shots of limoncello and a liquorice drink... More

Beautful views from this italian "bistrot". The seafood is fresh & delicious. I definitely recommend it for a quick and light dinner after a long day at the one fire beach Downside: too touristy from time to time and service can be a bit "heatless" in comparison to neighboring spots
