Our favourite meal in all of Italy. Some fellow travellers suggested we go on our last night in Priano and I'm so glad we did. Everything was sensational - it's an absolute must if you are in Priano (or anywhere on the amalfi Coast for that matter). It's a whole in the wall/ intimate small restaurant with beautiful bright flowers... More

Honestly the best meal I've ever eaten!!! Gennaro was absolutely amazing and made us feel like the only people in the restaurant when it really was quite busy! It was like going to his home for dinner - could not recommend it more highly! So reasonable and so so delicious!

This restaurant is unique. The owner seats you, speaks with you to learn your dining preferences, chooses a wine for you, then cooks you a meal based on your conversation. The atmosphere is cozy and right in the center of Praiano. Lots of fun and a delicious meal. Wonderful man with a terrific work ethic.

Gennaro is the owner of Vivaro and I remember him from years back when my best friend got married in Ravello. He is a generous and friendly host that makes you feel at home in his place which he runs on his own or with his many friends who are there to hangout. Went there on both our nights in... More

This is a very different but enjoyable experience, you choose white or red wine and fish or meat you leave the rest to Gennaro. Lovely night and recommended if you are staying in praiano or positano.

We first came here 3 years ago and we revisited ( twice) this week. This little place has a lovely vibe and great food. No menu.....chose meat or fish then see what you get. It's all good! The owner, chef, waiter Gennaro is lovely and I can't imagine anyone having a bad night here. Suits families and couples. Look forward... More

We ate at several good restaurants in praiano during our holiday here but Vivaro takes top spot. Don't come here if you are in a hurry or if you're especially fussy - it simply won't be enjoyable. The reason being that you are only given a choice between fish or meat and red or white wine - the rest is... More

This restaurant is perfect if you'd like to have a different kind of dining experience. Gennaro will ask you when you come in if you'd like meat or fish, and if you have any allergies. After that, he decides what you eat. He will also pick out the wine for you based on whether you'd like red or white. Beer... More

The chef/owner is a one-man show. He does everything from seating the customers to cooking to serving to busing the dishes. When you dine there, it's a fixed price menu. You have a choice of either fish or meat, red wine or white. He does the rest. It was great art, and a very good dinner. We both choose fish.... More
