Family dinner

We popped in for dinner without reservation. It situated in a lovely spot in the heart of small Praiano. We where shown a table with good views of the bay and coastline to Positano. I had a beer to cool me down and we shared bruschetta as an anti pasta. We all had pasta (seafood, ragu, courgette... read more

We went not having made any reservation. It was busy, but we were given a table with fantastic views over the piazza and Positano. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We had a lasagna bolognese ( one of the few places we have found with a meat sauce and pasta) and swordfish with linguine. We also had a mixed... More

We were in praiano one time when my wife had a broken ankle. We were staying rather close so I would go there regularly for take-away. The owner was so great. He went out of his way to help us out. He even gave us a bottle of wine to bring home. Still have the bottle. Going back to Praiano... More

We went into Praiano Main Street to look at the possible restaurants for our evening meal. We were in the square of the church and saw this restaurant above us, so we thought we would give it a try. I ordered a salami pizza and my wife ordered a seafood linguine. We had some wine and a beer. The food... More

Food was disgusting. Waiters were unkind and inhospitable. Only view on the church was nice. No more words, i`m highly disappointed.

We couldn't make up our mind about dinner so we went to this restaurant because it was close, it didn't seem expensive, it looked like a decent place and the food looked good. We ordered pizzas and one pizza can be shared between 2 people (unless you're really hungry). Prices are decent. It cost us a little less than €80... More

We arrived at the restaurant at 20.35 with the intent to have a romantic table evening at a reasonable price but in already 5 minutes we had our drink and starter. We were still eating the last bit of our starter when they came to take our plates and placed our (really bad, swimming in water and half cold) main... More

Only the location is a plus. Be prepared: staff is very unfriendly and seem to have received orders to fill each table at least several times every evening. Result: food comes very quick and check comes without even having to ask for it. Pitty.
