Honestly, this one of the best stays ever. Pino is just the most amazing host and I couldn't agree more that it's simply the best stay I've ever had. It was definitely like being in paradise with the views in the morning being stunning sea views and the location just perfectly situated between Amalfi & Positano.
Pino's food was fabulous with the fresh seafood best to none (oh the octopus) and pasta/lasagne spot on. The tomatoes on the first day were so good, really what you expected of Italy. Avoid the risotto though, not so good. I would also recommend that the sachets of olive oil and vinegar be replaced with bottles, a bit tacky.
The room was good and basic, no frills but works. The shower was a bit small and lots of gizmos to keep your entertained. TV had lots of channels you wouldn't watch, many didn't work.
Overall, this is the best stay I've ever had and would highly recommend. I would definitely return and I miss Pino to this day - Pino is the sort of guy who should be in hospitality for all the right reasons. Right on Pino Fantastico :)
