We found this restaurant while walking through the streets of Positano. We wanted a special dinner for our last day in the Amalfi coast. This was an unforgettable surprise: the food was outstanding, the best in our italian trip. The terrace facing Positano was elegantly arranged, cozy and relaxing. The service was superb, attentive, exquisite. A fully recommended restaurant at... More

Great hotel, impeccable service, staff will do anything they can to help, speak a little Italian and they will love you. Make sure you get a room with a balcony and sea view. Restaurant is more sophisticated than down on the beach but not much more expensive.

We have had lunch and dinner at 6-7 different restaurants in Positano, and this is the best and most pleasant meal so far. Lovely and quiet terrace with a view. Good food, excellent burger for the kids. Calm and relaxed atmosphere, yet luxurious. Prices were also reasonable with around €20 for the main courses (fish and meat).

My husband was also impressed with their comprehensive wine list. Combine all this with the superb views and romantic ambiance and you have the essence of the Almalfi coast! Expensive yes,... More

We stayed at the Marrincanto Hotel and one night, we decided to try this place! We ordered seafood ( squid ), fresh burgers, and very good lemon risotto. The burger was fresh beef and it was really good! The squid was simply authentic and was full of taste. The lemon risotto was Michelin Star cooking. So good! If you were... More

If you are staying near by, it is a must. This is really a 5 star place. And then add the view..... It is spectacular! We polished the pasta, the risotto, burger, pasta, fries! Just do it!

Staying in the hotel and loved dining here on a couple of occasions. Friendly efficient staff- fairly simple lunch menu, with more fine dining dinner menu. Large well priced wine list- food at Positano prices- did I mention the view? (PS I think you can buy breakfast here too if you are staying nearby and don't have breakfast included)

The staff here is very attentive and friendly. We had wonderful breakfasts on the beautiful patio every morning. Always greeted with warm smiles. Dinner also very nice and accompanied by a pianist on certain nights. Highly recommend the hotel and the dining.
