We were able to walk to this restaurant from our villa. So luckily avoiding the 500 steps each way to the beach restaurants. You must have reservations particularly during the busy months. So plan ahead to visit this beautiful spot. The strolling musicians have been entertaining guests with their mandolin and guitar for over 25 years. Excellent service accompanies spectacular... More

Dinner at La Sponda is an amazing experience. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the food is delicious. What makes La Sponda one of the best restaurants you will ever visit is the level of service you receive. The attention to detail is unmatched. When in Positano, definitely spend a night at La Sponda, you will not be disappointed.

Food and service outstanding....A MUST GO!!!!! Everything was excellent and presented beautifully. We had a lovely local fish and spagetti with garlic and oil....was just delicious. We also had the zuchinni flowers stuffed with ricotta and capers, another favorite. This was my second time dining in the restaurant and was outstanding on both occasions.

We chose La Sponda for our anniversary dinner which was a fantastic choice! The views are spectacular looking over the church dome and the myriad of multi coloured homes climbing up the sides of the cove. But overall we must say that the STAFF are what make this experience remarkable. You are literally waited on by 3-4 staff members and... More

It's recommended by the local shop, we seems to be lucky to get the table without reservation. It's a beautiful and romantic restaurant. The service was great too, but I can't say the Italian food there was blowing my mind.. we tried the tasting menu and everything was just really average.. I think it's a bit overpriced for food but... More

When you arrive at La Sponda you realize what an incredible evening it is going to be the moment you step foot inside. The staff was ready to welcome us and we were seated promptly for our 8pm reservation. The food was absolutely delicious and the wines perfect. The evening breeze was lovely. My only complaint was that we couldn't... More

This tasting menu is a little big for my taste (pardon the redundancy) but very good. The wine paring was also good, if maybe too generous pours. The service was beyond excellent. Be prepared to spend a relaxing 4 hours for dinner. It deserves the Mitchlen 1 star that it has earned.

We are always delighted to find a Michelin Star restaurant within our hotel and so we booked this dining experience immediately after securing a room. This was our best Positano meal (by far) and I have to say I was not disappointed. First of all, you will find the most lovely view in all of Positano to enjoy while dining.... More

Charming restaurant in the heart of Le Sirenuse Hotel. The restaurant is entirely lit by 450 candles. The cuisine is contemporary Italian, using only the freshest local ingredients. The view is breathtaking as is the impeccable service.
