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.

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.

Staff spoke little English, but attentive. The food was nice, not overly special, but nice enough to eat there again. There was a wood fire pizza oven, the pizza I had was tasty.

Grumpy staff who told us we were not customers as we did not order food (having just spent 50 euro there)... Gave up hanging out there for any longer and went to a different Praiano beach.

The restaurant has a great location and friendly staff but the food is poor quality. The pizza was the worst I have had anywhere in Italy. The pasta was not well cooked with not much flavour. Try the other restaurants at the beach, they are all better for about the same price.
