The tastiest Italian food in Praiano! Family run restaurant that caters to its customers like they are family. Favorite dishes included grilled fish of the day sea bass, lasagna, mixed fried fish, soups, pizzas... all large portions. Ocean view with Positano in distance make the meal even more delectable. Looking forward to returning for a third year in 2017.

We ate here once on our recent trip to Praiano. The pizza and bruschetta was good and relatively inexpensive. We sat on the terrace overlooking the main piazza with the backdrop of the Amalfi coastline. Not somewhere to eat for fine dining (plastic garden chairs) but good food at reasonable prices.

Rather touristy and the food was average. The calamari was surprisingly good and the view of the piazza in front of the church where children played through out was right below the outdoor eating area. Wait staff was a little green when it came to pouring wine properly. You have a great view of the sunset, however. Not the most... More

This restaurant was good but somewhat pedestrian considering the overall superior quality of the restaurants in Priaino. I wouldn't hesitate to dine here, just not the best available. It was a good dinner nevertheless.

Easy to over order! We enjoyed the Margarita and Napoli pizzas, also the gnocchi, and the sea bream was terrific. Very large servings- good value, casual surrounds.

Had 3 enjoyable family meals 2 dinners and 1 lunch here during our four day visit to Praiano and surrounds. Ate at other venues that were a bit upmarket but found this good fair value for money. Both pasta and pizzas were devoured by our hungry young adult children at each and every sitting. My favourite was the octopus salad... More

We were recommended by our airport cab driver to have dinner at this restaurant, he said it offered genuine italian traditional food, which is exactly what we love. It looked nice and the location and the view are splendid. But we were quite disappointed by the sad state of their italian cooking: cold, rubbery mozzarella, antipasti without much taste that...

The service was kind but the food was really not up to expected standard. The antipasti with parma and mozzarella was hard and tasteless. The pasta ok but not more than this. Nice situated with great view. But there are som many other options of restaurant that I suggest you choose some were else.
