“Highly Pretencious & vastly overpriced”
Reviewed August 30, 2010

Our arrival was greeted with a Dickensian swarm. Nevertheless, this at least guaranteed decent service. That was until a Russian oligarch arrived and then service at our table was as if we were in Fawlty Towers. However, the food was good, although excessively complicated. This was a shame, especially given the area's fantastic primary ingredients. In short, we ate better and more honestly at every other restaurant in the area - without the initial and very false Uriah Heap charm. Lastly, the little statues of street urchins on each table really should be binned.

“Worth the drive, incredible food, very expensive”
Reviewed November 27, 2009

A friend from the US suggested that we eat at Quattro Passi when we were visiting Positano. Overall, it was a great experience: beautiful outdoor dining experience, impeccable yet relaxed service (including being visited by the owner/chef Tonino), and great food. The only caveats to eating here are (1) it is about a 1 hour drive along very small and curvy roads from Positano (and you need a GPS to figure out how to get here, or at least good detailed directions) and (2) this place is VERY EXPENSIVE. We were shocked when our lunch bill for two of us came and it cost 500 euro ($750); granted, we inadvertently ordered a great bottle of Amarone (wine) which unbeknownst to us cost 300 Euro ($450), so the food was "only" 200 Euro ($300) for the two of us. So, go there but bring a big wad of cash!
