Came here on other recommendations and it didn't disappoint. We ordered gelato, aperol spritz and a double espresso and all were very tasty. Would def go back here for the Gelato alone.

We have bern coming here for years and the food is consistently amazing. They also have the best American style breakfast buffet on the terrace.

Great location next to the beach. We ordered the fish, but found it a bit boring. Some sauce would have helped!

The setting was beautiful, with view over Positano from the beach. The food was ok but not amazing. OK prices.

Okay restaurant with relatively high prices for average food. Busy as it is centrally located, it underdelivers on the quality of the meals. A tourists‘ place.

Not the place to eat if looking for local genuine Italian cuisine. Definitely felt like a tourist trap. Food was OK and nothing amazing. Wouldn’t return.
