Incredible experience, unbelievable views, interior and service. The pasta was the best I have ever had, literally disintegrated in my mouth, even the motif on the plate was divine! Two singers playing guitars came to the table to sing a song which was beautiful and...romantic. I couldn't recommend this place enough! Thank you for a truly special and memorable experience!More

The location and decor of this restaurant is lovely. However we found the service incredibly slow, and the food was very over priced. I ordered the pasta 'special' which was a mushroom and scampi dish which cost 50 EURO. It only had four pieces of...tiny scampi on it. It was nice enough but for that price I'd expect an outstanding dish with a more generous amount of sea food - I'm not sure how they can justify charging so much money for it when you get barely any seafood. The overall bill came to about triple what we'd paid in other places - and the food certainly did not justify that much extra. We were expecting a lot more for our money so it was quite disappointing. I would recommend visiting for a drink to see the views, and eat in a more reasonable restaurant because the food wasn't any better than other places we'd eaten in.More

I had heard so much about this restaurant, and so I booked it for my parents for our trip to Positano. The food was not great: my mother had to send the fish back and she never does this - and then she had to...wait over 45 minutes for a replacement dish. We were also served the wrong drinks. The setting and view however was very beautiful (see photo), and the staff kindly seated us a little early. However, I feel this place may be living on its reputation and not really living up to it.More

I will give the 5 stars! Because the view is worth 10 and the 2 men that serenade each table were amazing! My partner brought me here for our 6 year anniversary dinner. To be simple, the food was good! But lacks flair and assertive...flavour profiles! The service by Pepe and his team was fantastic. I will hand it to the sommeliers, they were amazing! Such a soft presence, my glass was always full. There was one waiter! Scatty spilled drops of water on the cloth. I hate a messy pour! Overall Great nightMore

Like every year we had reserved a table on the terrace for lunch. Due to the Covid-19 crisis, however, only 3 tables were occupied. You should think that this would be a very good opportunity to offer excellent service to the less present guests. unfortunately...that was not the case. A waiter dropped a tray with glasses and the glass splinters were all over our table, over my dress and were all over the floor. our drinks were neither changed nor did anyone apologize to us for the inconvenience. Very disappointing for a restaurant in this price range. This annual tradition found an end.More

We were lucky to get the table with quite short notice. From the first minute we got the feeling it will be unforgettable evening. Our starters tomato salad and sea bass leaded us to nirvana. After few days my wife is still talking about tomato...salad. The view and athmosphere were fantastic and live music made the mood even greater. Price was high of course but definitely worth of it.

Didn’t see any and as the hotel does not allow children under 10 years of age. I am only guessing that there are very few who dine or lunch on the property

When we went in July it was very hot. Only one man had a dinner jacket and all men wore dress shirts, dress pants and dress shoes. Women were dressed stylishly. No one had shirts or flip flops. Enjoy!
