Would not admit their wine was corked

We stayed at a beautiful hotel near here and just wanted to stop in here for a late lunch. We ordered food and a bottle of wine. The young waiter opened the bottle at our table and walked away, with the cork, before we could taste the wine. As soon as we smelled it, we could tell it was "corked"... read more

Authentic to the region, plus we just loved the inclusion of their local seafood. Of course the view was amazing as it is right on the beach.

Rude waitress, small and tasteless dishes. Tourists trap... There are so many better places nearby. Do your self a favor and stay away!

Just loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. Right on the beach. We were there before the season started. So there were very few people even on the beach. But we were made to feel very welcome by the family. Lunch was wonderful so we returned for dinner. Some entrees were outstanding. Others just OK. But we would still come back!

Located in the small port of Praiano it sits right on the edge go the sea. It is a fun, lively setting. The food however was just fair. We had swordfish prepared just grilled and in a sauce. The plain grilled was far better. The house wine was very nice and reasonable Service was friendly and helpful. There were mainly... More

A nice located restaurant situated between the step cliffs of Praiano. The food is not "wow" or similar, but it doesnt let you down either. You get what you pay for. Would I return? Nope, not because the food but there is so many more equally good places nearby.

This is a great casual place right down on the beach. We enjoyed several meals with them, all were great. I had my first aperol spritz here, and kept coming back for more.

I can't believe it took me so long to find out about this place. This is an easy water taxi ride from Positano, it can be reached by bus ride also but me and my friends enjoyed the short ride on the sea from Positano so much. Everything feels like you are on a movie set here including when you... More

We had a quick lunch there with some drinks. The food was ok but the service was unattentive. The prices for the aperitives werde unreasonably high especially compared to il pirata etc.

A very friendly and welcoming beach restaurant with great Gnocci and a spectacular view! Also right by the beach so a great option for both lunch and dinner.
