Good food and wine with tables overlooking the main road. The only slight annoyance was the person walking around with a guitar playing songs and trying hard to sell his CD to diners.

After a boat trip out to capri we were looking to find somewhere near to our hotel to eat. Quite tired after a day at sea lying about in the sun!? We came upon this place as we took the road down towards the town from our hotel. Our table had a lovely view of Positano lit up at night... More

The food was really beautiful and an amazing atmosphere. The staff are so nice. Very friendly and singing away. I would highly recommend this restaurant and the bottle of Chianti.

The staff was the friendliest in Positano. The menu is very good. I came here because I read about the gluten free pizza. I was not disappointed. Absolutely delicious! You have to tell them you want it gluten free, it's not on the menu as such. Even my kids ate it without complaining. The sea bass was amazing too.

The captain of our boat tour recommended this place... and he probably oversold it. It's nothing special. We went at 6:30 p.m. which is too early for dinner in Italy. The waiter was too attentive. We wished he had left us alone a bit! The food was ok at best; the steak, for instance, is definitely overpriced for what you... More

We had a very nice meal - the fish was perfectly cooked and very tasty. We were outside one tabel from the road, which is busy early evening but quietened down later. The service wasn't very well organised, they didn't seem to have allocated waiters to tables so it was all a bit random!

We didn't want to walk far from our villa so we landed here because of the reasonable rating. The dinner started promising thanks to the friendly waiter who gave us good advice on the contorni and the 'wine of the year '. However the bruscetta were disappointing (2 Italian restaurants in my neighbourhood in Antwerp serve better bruscetta than this)... More

We have been going here for the past 7 years. The food is always fantastic, and we have never had a bad meal. Service slipped a bit this past year, and there were long wait times between courses. However, the food more than made up for it. I would recommend the fish baked in salt crust and the homemade spinach... More
