We spotted this restaurant near our hotel and decided to give it a try. The menu is hand written and seems to only have local items on it. Not speaking any Italian we randomly chose dishes. All were fresh and delicious, if you're in the area give it a try. Pictures are of main courses, pasta with a white fish... More

I am fortunate enough to be able to call Claudia and Giancarlo, the owners of this gorgeous restaurant, my friends. Despite that I can honestly say that the serenity and beauty of this place is breathtaking. On a moonlight night by the water it makes for a romantic experience you are not likely to forget. One of the reasons I... More

This restaurant has a terrace right on the edge of the beach and a clear view out to sea towards the Bay of Naples. The view you get here helps any meal taste better, worth the trip just to sit and watch the sunset. Good range of seafood as you would expect and seems to vary based on what they... More

My friends and randomly came across this restaurant and after being in Italy for a week already, it was the best meal thus far. We sat right away and instantly felt welcomed by the kindness of the family owners. The pasta with pesto sauce, swordfish, and pasta with clams was delicious. This is a very recommendable restaurant tucked away on... More

We went twice in the late afternoon. The setting is quite spectacular and we enjoyed the warmth of the sun after a cool day. The price of the drinks was good value and the service was excellent.

Okey we have to admit that having lunch on the beach early November does influence your review but this was an amazing experience at a place you would never consider to be that good. Great service, with a smile and a glass of Prosecco to start with. The choice in the menu was not to big but what they served... More

Excellent sea food! John Carlo made us an appetizer of local sea food, followed by pasta with clams we shared and sea tuna that was amazing. Claudia was a wonderful host and the experience was perfect. The location right on the beach was beautiful. A hidden gem right down the road from our accommodations. When we return another visit will... More

We went here because the view was nice, but now hope that we would have gone to somewhere else. The waiter couldn`t really speak English and the menu was only in Italy so we had no idea what we ordered. First course was ok but my fish was so salty I didn`t want to eat it.

What started out as just a lunch on the way to Positano turned into a gourmet experience that only a few chefs can create. The food was incredible and more importantly the hospitality of the owner Giancarlo and his wife made us feel so welcomed. The bar was set very high for all the other restaurants that we ate at...
