Have to agree with the reviewer below. Terrible service! I waited with my family for over 30 mins to even get seen at the table despite numerous requests. When a waiter finally came he said I would not be able to place an order for...More

We decided we wanted a break from bread (pizza) and/or pasta so after looking at quite a few menus as we wandered decided to try here as the fried selection of Arancini, croquets, veg and mozzarella appealed. We shared it along with a mixed salad....More

We were so looking forwarding to eating here, but the experience let us down. Service was very ordinary, food was ordinary. Bread was stale, I couldn’t believe it. Sorry I didn’t take any photos.

Headed here shortly after arriving in Positano after a long-day o travel. we just wanted something light to eat given that dinner was not long off. We enjoyed two pizza's (delicious) and some cheese/meats (and beer). Service was good with good people watching.

We ate here one night and we were thoroughly underwhelmed with the meal. Th food in Positano is so good that this place just didn't measure up. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't anything special.

We had lunch at this restaurant and enjoyed the immediate views of lower Positano and the harbour. The restaurant was air conditioned which was lovely in the August heat. Service was prompt. Food was well presented, although the risotto was perhaps not quite cooked for...More
