“Seafood pizza on the terrace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We stumbled on this place and were charmed immediately by the rustic terrace overlooking the sea. It's away from the touristy areas on the beaches, and you feel like you have the Positano seaside all to your self. Our lunch was delicious. The best melon and prosciutto I've ever tasted, and a pizza topped with mixed seafood -- clams, shrimp, mussels, all in the shell and leaving their lovely briny sea flavors all through the whole pizza. This lunch was a highlight of our trip to Positano. It's a little hard to see as you walk the sea cliff walk between the two beaches, but keep an eye out for the set of steps leading up and the small sign. You really don't want to miss this place. It should be ranked much higher on the Positano restaurant list but probably not enough people track it down. You won't be sorry if you take the trouble.

“Great fish and more...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We really enjoyed the fresh seafood cooked in their stone oven. Everything tasted so fresh. We also enjoyed the local vino served in a ceramic pitcher (could the pitcher make the wine taste better:) ). We also split a pizza that turned out to be our fav Pizza in Positano. The owner is very likable and attentive as was the rest of the staff and the view was perfect. Def put this restaurant on your must eat list...

“Great food....and view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

We have been to Positano several times and would not eat anywhere else. The setting of the restaurant...away from the Positano crowds...makes it our first choice. The food and service are unbeatable and it's not the least bit touristy. As with so many restaurants in Italy, it is slow and relaxed dining with a lovely view. Don't miss this gem!

“Lovely Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoyed our meal here. Sitting above the water looking down the coast towards Amalfi. Very Romantic setting. Good unpretentious food. Service a little gruff to begin with but warmed as the meal progressed.

“Yeah, disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We went this evening on our last evening in Positano and were pretty disappointed based on the other reviews. The food was OK but not wonderful. The fish was too salty and we did not get the "special oven flavor". The service was average at best. Would suggest you skip this one.
