It's all about the seafood....

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

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

We ate here several times, omelettes, dinners. all served with complimentary limoncello, peach, raspberry "cellos" at every meal, "just to taste senora". Sat for hours just enjoying the sun one day and chatted with waitress. Homey, delicious, lovely spot.

Good food at a cheap price. Extremely large portions, you won't be able to finish your dish. And in the end they will offer you complimentary limoncello. Don't miss out! Go there!

We had dinner here earlier this week and had pizza and pasta. The portions were huge and we couldn't finish it all. The tiramisu was delicious. Appreciated the limoncello (especially the strawberry!) Prices were very reasonable.

We found this restaurant entirely by chance, and I am so glad that we did! Rode in on a vespa and easily parked out front. We walked down the stairs and into the main restaurant area. It was around noon, and so we were not there at a normal lunch hour. However these Americans were hungry! The staff was kind... More

We were here in the off season so firstly we were just glad that something was open. The place is family run, with the family watching tv in the restaurant as you eat. Not a great look, but didn't bother us too much. We had the mixed seafood platter for 2 which could have fed about 6 people. It was... More

Service was acceptable but the food itself left much to be desired. First no pizza was available because they didn't want to turn on the ovens. So we were left with pasta which wasn't bad but fairly bland. The prices were also rather expensive given what was delivered along with the automatic gratuity. Have no desire to ever eat here...
