And this is a great review. If it puts you off, good! It makes it easier for me to get a table next time.

This is my favourite restaurant in Italy. Come with wide eyes, a sense of adventure.
Don't take it personally if the waiters can't quite take the time to immediately explain the italian blackboard menu to you (especially if you haven't tried to read it)
Please don't criticise them (former and future reviewers) for what appears like chaos; running up stairs, barking orders- this is them getting your perfectly cooked meal to your table! It's not chaos. It's efficient! They have a sense of urgency!
Think of this first as a little sea shack, a shanty by the beach.
Expect nothing.
Enjoy the ride there.
Enjoy the theatre of the occasional person falling into the water, having missed the pier.
And you may, you just may - if you are one of those lucky people in the world to truly appreciate the simplicity and the genius of fresh, fresh food, cooked so well - have an experience you can only dream of replicating.

Great little restaurant out of the way with its own beach. Pretty much have to catch a boat over, but they offer free boat service from Positano, which is all part of the charm!
Fantastic service and nice and casual. Loved the wine and different styles of italian cuisine !

We took the boat over from Positano. Lunch was easy going, crowded and fun. Blackboard menu with lots of fresh fish. Nothing fancy, just good food, wine and lots of people enjoying themselves. Small rocky beach for those who want to hang out. Go and enjoy, you won't regret it.

we hiked here after the path of the gods and they asked how we got there since we didnt show up by boat. the food was awesome, the mussels about the best we had. the beach is small and crowded but perfect before and after the meal.....the view is incredible....make sure you visit here.

The best meal we had in the whole Amalfi Coast. Everything from the boat ride to the little blackboard menu and view overlooking the sea make this simple restaurant so perfect. Every time I come to Positano I book in (a must) multiple times as it is just that good.
Favourites are the spaghetti with clams, sautéed prawns and mozzarella in lemon leaves.
Don't think about going, just do it otherwise you will regret it.
