“Beautiful setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

The italian coast in this particular part, in my view belongs to the most beautiful in the world. The restaurant (and hotel) are situated on a dreamspot.
The dishes were ok, but somehow disappointing for a one star restaurant; we took the house specialty, a napoletan pie as starter, followed by a seafood dish;
The spectacular view makes up for the simple tasting meal and the sophisticated bill.

“The most beautiful Hotel ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Without doubt this is the most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed in. From the moment you arrive in the car park to the moment you leave you are looked after like nowhere else! The hotel's position is without doubt superb. We were allocated room 13 with a utterly gobsmaking view of Positano. The staff, the location, the service, the food, the drinks, the ambiance...... This is a must visit hotel!

“Nothing to write home about”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Lunch service at the restaurant was mediocre, Staff was OK but both food and wine product left a lot lacking for a facility with its reputation. Pasta undercooked, frozen deserts not served frozen, wines overpriced and poorly selected. Not a very enjoyable experience and did not return. The grounds, however, were immaculate and beautiful. Says a lot for the hotel but unfortunately, the restaurant is a miss in our books. Too bad....

“Nice evening in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We ate at the San Pietro for my birthday.
It is a very special hotel and we had pre dinner drinks on the terrace overlooking the sea-very beautiful.
The service was first rate and the overall experience very good.
The meal itself was very good but not quite as good as we had hoped for.
As you would expect it was expensive but for a special occasion and given the setting it was pretty much value for money

“Save your money. Nice ambiance with good view but mediocre food at astronomical prices.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

The dining room is quite charming. It was raining and windy the night we were there so we could not sit out on the terrace, which looks like a beautiful spot. Service was attentive and professional but definitely rushed. There was no lingering over each course. They have a very extensive wine list. All the appetizers were priced between 30 and 40 Euro, which is $37- $50. That is expensive even if you get a great dish, which we did not. My wife could not find an appetizer she liked so we split a seafood salad. It was disappointing. There were 3 pieces of tasteless calamari, the tiniest 2 shrimps I have ever seen not to be outdone by the smallest 2 clams and mussels. What a rip off! We ordered chicken breast and mint flavored sea bass for the main entrees. The sea bass was dry and tasteless. The chicken was dry as well. This is not a place I would recommend.
