Loved this restaurant. The very kind and hilarious waiter took us on a food journey with marvelous fish dishes. He recommended a 30€ bottle of wine (extremely cheap for Positano) that was made with the nectar of the gods: delicious and we ended up quite...drunk and happy. The food was also fantastic: we loved the seafood pasta and the ink squid linguini (a dish that is either perfect, like at this restaurant, or absolutely terrible). Gorgeous lemon tiramisu for dessert. We went during COVID and felt really safe (the restaurant windows were strategically opened so that you still felt warm and enjoyed the splendid view)More

Ate here three times, Don't go for the decor, or the service (which is patchy) but for the deck location overlooking the beach and the food, especially the gluten free choices (spag, gnocchi, bread etc). Freshly caught fish, excellent flavours lovingly prepared. They need to...work on their wines - which were limited. Its not the cheapest and lacks that Italian charm on demand. - but settle into their menu and you wont be disappointed. My favourites,gluten free gnocchi with anything and Scoligo fish stew. Message to the lady owner - give the decorator a call sometime.More

In the center of Positano. Good position, nothing else. Topical touristic place. Will not recommend at all

This is one of those restaurants that feel entitled due to its prime location. It's a good piece of real estate, right on the water, that's it. The host, which is the first interaction a client has with an establishment, had as much charm as...a dead clam on a plate of spaghetti al vongole and clearly feels he is bestowing royal titles by granting you the table of HIS choice. The waiter was dutifully polite but less than attentive. The food very good but not out of this world. All the charm Positano exudes clearly bypassed this place.More

The food was ok, the rest was terrible. Over priced, really bad service and not pleasant looking. Find other restaurants to eat!

Amazing views and delicious food! The service was excellent and we were excited to find them open in the off season! The linguini with clams was superb and the squid appetizer amazing

We came here in mid February to explore the little village of Positano. We stumbled on this restaurant as one of the few open during low season. Whilst the prices are quite expensive the portions are large and the food itself very light and tasty....We managed to eat outside with the sea view and the warm sun. A great little place for a spot of lunch!More

We'd hiked from Campora (Agerola) here so were looking forward to a lovely, late lunch and to spoil ourselves with a really nice bottle of red and this place did not disappoint! It was a pretty grim view overlooking the beach with lots of tourists...taking selfies during an off-season, overcast, chilly day, but we were really grateful anywhere was open to be honest. The waiter gave us a really good wine recommendation and gave us some tips for our upcoming trip to Sorrento (he had recently moved there). Bit pricey relative to the rest of our trip, but the location demanded it so we thought that was fair enough and the quality of the food was really good (I had some gorgeous gnocchi).More

We ate here for lunch as it was one of the only few places open in February. On the beach so no doubt popular, with excellent views, but the price of meals, if not the wine, was extortionate. My wife had a small plate of...spinach for 8 euros and fries for the same. I had the mixed fried fish plate for 30 euros ! which was one piece of fired fish, and a crab and two jumbo prawns. I had trying to dissect shellfish, I wouldn't have ordered it if i had known. Maybe lost in translation. We didnt even see the 3 euro bread covers as they arrived in a bag which was hung from the table and I didn't realize until after it was taken away. Wine was ok - we chose the cheapest and the other we chose was out. Service a bit disinterested. Paying for the location.More

The local is well located but expensive for what they serve. They offered us the expensive version of the menu and we had to ask for the cheapest one, kind of...Tricky! The waiter was rude and the pasta too salty and undercooked. Definitely we won't...try it again.More
