We go here at least once every time we are in Praiano. There is no menu, so if you can't handle that you shouldn't go. You're asked "fish or meat?" on arrival and you get three courses based on your choice. I've never had a meal that was not excellent here and the wines recommended with the food are always... More

The view was lovely at sunset and the food was great with large. We ordered the mussels and the bowl was huge, we almost couldn't finish them! Reasonable prices and good service. The location is handy right in the centre of town. The decor could use an update.

We ate here twice because it hit all the marks for a wonderful family dinner. It's a family owned business and you can see how hard they work to make this a wonderful experience for out of towners! The pasta was homemade and cooked to perfection! The seafood was so fresh as it was caught the same day they were... More

We ate here 3 times we loved it so much! Our waitress rosella was always great as we're all the staff just don't know all their names. Food was always good and very reasonably priced. Try their seafood antipasto yum, large enough to share. Great looking out over the churches courtyard watching kids play football(soccer) and fantastic view of Postiano.

Excellent service. Delicious food. Great value. And I love the outdoor dining. Large portions, maybe too large. We were very satisfied with our food here. Can't say the same for other restaurants in the area. I think I could have eaten here every night.

We stumbled across Trattoria San Gennaro this evening having been here a week already. The views of Positano drew us in however it the food, very disappointing. Our pizza was soggy and tasteless and I've had significantly better Carbonara's. A shame as you come to Italy for great food and it certainly wasn't that. Highly recommend walking a little further...

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.
