This was a hidden gem. Best spaghetti & meatballs. Everything was very fresh. Great proprietor who enjoys having patrons that appreciate his food.

I had my doubts about this place the first time we walked past, but am so glad we stopped in the end. The home-made melanzane parmigiana was delicious, as was the panini-style hamburger. Good wine, and a friendly host made it a very pleasant experience and the prices, for Positano, were pretty reasonable.

Only came here as it seemed to have a better choice and a better price than some of the places along the coast. We both had hot sandwiches which were yummy and very filling. Staff were very helpful and friendly and it was lovely sitting in the shade in the piazza just relaxing here.

A great little place just back from the busy beach front. We went in the evening which was quieter and therefore a nice relaxed atmosphere. Great food and more reasonably priced than the beach front establishments. The later we stayed it was clear it was somewhere that locals also went to which again added to the atmosphere.

My husband and I loved this place so much we went back! We came here on the first night of our honeymoon and it was perfect- the atmosphere is chill and laid back compared to the fussier places in Positano, and the waiter was helpful with choosing wine. The pasta with the braised meat in red wine is still one... More

Nothing to brag about. The food it's just ok. The service is quite good, the location is very good and the town (Positano) is just amazing. So I guess that the food is not the highlight of this place. A bit pricey too.

My husband and I tried this restaurant after a recommendation from a local woman, who stated that the fish was truly fresh. We started by ordering the grilled fish salad appetizer which we thought was the highlight of the meal, yum so good and fresh!

Have just had dinner here. It was amazing. Food Bellissimo. Service, the best we have had in the last 3 weeks in Italy! This little gem is a much better option then restaurants on the beach. DO NOT leave without having the choc heart cake. It is amazing. Possibly the best dessert I have ever tasted. 3 more days here... More
