We went at lunchtime, when it was fairly empty. May be different in the evening. Fine for a simple plate of pasta, a glass of wine and lovely views. The portions are huge.

We ordered our meal And it was brought to our table one minute later. Maybe two minutes.... Food was cold, quite expensive . In other words, skip this Place. Worst restaurant we visited during our three week stay in italy

The service was average with one waitress looking very disinterested while the other was excellent. The portions are huge so don't order an appetiser. However, as has been mentioned in other reviews, quantity comes at the expense of quality. I still am unsure what I was and wasn't charged for as the bill was hand written and illegible. An 8%...

Very nice location right next to the church of San Gennaro with excellent views of Positano. This restaurant is clearly understaffed. The staff are doing an amazing job under the circumstances but inevitably there is a feeling that things are being thrown at your table. We had pizzas and they were reasonable enough. Plastic tables and chairs. Cheap and simple... More

I've been in Italy for almost 2 weeks and this is the only restaurant that charged me for bringing cold and hard bread to the table and 8% tax, which I don't even know if its legal in Italy. I called the waitress who, just like any other waiter in Italy that don't care about clients, showed me that all... More

Very nice Frutti Di Mare. Almost too big portions. Very nice view with super service and good house wine. We have travelled around the Naples Islands and this Trattoria comes out top 3.

This is one of the most authentic Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at. Not much to be said really other than the food is amazing, the service is equally as good and you'll go to food heaven eating the gnocchi with mozzarella and the vongele not to mention the seafood platter for two. Lovely staff and beautiful views... we... More

The restaurant has a view over the St Gennaro church and square and onwards over the sea. The staff were very friendly and we ordered the grilled fish for two - an amazing platter filled with local fish and seafood. We couldn't finish!
