It lives up to its billing as a wonderfully elegant restaurant. The atmosphere is beautiful, the service is prompt, and the setting cannot be beat. The best part is the wine expert who did a masterful job of picking our wine for our complicated meal. The negatives are two. One is that he food is somewhat average. Still very good... More

La Sponda is a wonderful restaurant. The location and views are as spectacular as the food and service. We ate dinner and lunch there twice. It is amazing!

The restaurant is absolutely stunning and the service was outstanding. While every aspect of our meal was fantastic, the food itself is entirely underwhelming. The food's presentation was like art, and unfortunately it was better left to look at than to eat as the food was completely under seasoned and ultimately bland. If you are looking for a great meal... More

Never experienced such great service. Coming from Sydney we are spoilt with great food but this place takes the cake (excuse the pun) I was blown away by the service, food, decor and view! One tip, they will always say they are booked or make it seem like it's a problem to sit you. Just be patient, always plenty of... More

My girlfriend and I had dinner at La Sponda on a Sunday evening whilst in Positano. The restaurant was phenomenal; excellent service, delicious food, and what a view. We dined from 8 o'clock and watched the sun set as two musicians walked amongst the tables playing guitars and singing. Our waiter was a local man whom we met again a... More

I booked a table online prior to our visit for the last night of our holiday, having read the reviews on trip advisor. Wow - it was amazing. My husband didn't stop smiling the whole evening!! Setting: the restaurant has lovely views out to see over Positano. Some of the tables are inside but we sat outside near the pool.... More

This a beautiful hotel and the dining space was equally beautiful. The view was amazing, but show me the restaurant in Positano that does not have a great view. Service was very good. The food was decent but nothing tasted particularly great.

My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting La Sponda while we were in Positano for our honeymoon in June 2016. After doing my research I knew that we just had to go to La Sponda and we had the most magical night! I made my reservation about a month or so in advance for a Saturday night and... More

My boyfriend and I went for dinner here during our stay in Positano. Overall we had a great experience. The restaurant was beautiful, the views were spectacular, and the service was amazing. We had a spot overlooking the water, with views of Positano, which was lovely. The whole restaurant was lit by candles. They had two men playing live music,... More

The beautiful La Sponda @ Le Sirenuse Hotel has picturesque views of the colorful cliff side village of Positano. This could be the most enjoyable place to experience Positano. One Michelin star but it's views and setting makes it one of the most memorable restaurant to dine in. Food was perfectly executed. Follow the waiters recommendations - the seafood pasta... More
