We were lucky enough that our villa was situated directly behind this restaurant so we ate there for many dinners! They always accommodated our large group and the chef always sent a fresh octopus over to our table when we sat down! The pizza, caprese, lasagna, and octopus is to die for! And the owner and servers are wonderful -... More

I have visited here number of times over the past few years with my Mom who adored both tbe food and the family who run this restaurant. Such a warm welcome and the food is just fabulous. Great pizza and delicious pasta dishes. This is a must visit spot on a trip to Priano. No airs and graces, just tasty... More

We have eaten at this trattoria several times on trips to Praiano. For the most part, we have been there for lunch and had the pizza. It's delicious as is the arugula salad. The view is lovely and, depending on the weather, you can eat inside or out. They serve complimentary liqueurs such as limoncello. * Again, this site only... More

We are here twice during our 6 day stay in Praeno after 4 days in Rome. We thought the pizza was the best that we had in Italy. Perfect amount of toppings and sauce. The service was friendly and quick. The portions of the caprese and arribbiata were large. The house wine is also very good.

We went here the first night in Praiano. The service was friendly and they picked us up and dropped us off after dinner. The food was good but not great and in Italy you should expect great.

We are at this restaurant our first night in Praino. It was recommended by a local we met walking in the village. The food was very good and prices were fair. I had the pasta puttenesca which was wonderful - one of the best meals I had in Italy. The seafood Del Mar was excellent. We had a nice meal... More

Loved this place. This was the first stop after checking into our hotel. Great view and one of my favorite pizza places visited on my two week trip.

This was a fantastic little find!! I was surprised it wasn't rated higher on TA as the pizza was the best I have tasted in Italy, cooked in a wood oven and with just the right amount of topping! At eight euros it was by far more reasonable than other, higher priced. The service was good and relaxed despite two... More

We tried several restaurants in Praiano and Positano. Trattoria San Gennaro by far surpassed them all. Pizza, Spaghetti Bolanese and Linguini were superb.

We were on a tour and our guide stopped off at this restaurant for lunch. My initial thought was that it looks a little in need of some TLC although the location and view was beautiful. I ordered shrimp and zucchini pasta and was probably the best pasta I ate in my entire Italy trip - absolutely delicious! Portions are... More
