Lovely friendly staff, high above the town, some of the best food of the week. We sat on the roadside tables, but you wouldn't have known it as we were so comfortable. Proper pizzas, and the best ravioli.

Positano is expensive so to find a restaurant that served mains for €12-€20 is a great start. The food was excellent and worth the money and much more. The atmosphere as mentioned in previous emails is fun and homely thanks to the family run team. The wine list is really good and also well priced. We shared a pizza as an entree which was a little excessive to start with but excellent. And for mains my husband had the best seafood risotto he claims he has ever had and I had a simple and delicious Gnocchi with tomato, mushrooms and basil. Excellent. No room for desert so can't comment. The waiter who served us gave excellent wine suggestions, entertained us with stories and taught us the correct pronunciation of places and objects. The restaurant is curb side on the main road and doesn't have views but is very pretty and thoughtfully decorated. Sit inside if you want a little more privacy and peace and quiet. A local band pops by to play a few songs and yes they do want a tip, a few euros for some wonderful and talented local musicians is worth it.

It's not often you say this, but the highlight of our night was our waiter.
Giuseppe was funny, professional and entertaining. Was a pleasure seeing him work his magic amongst the tables along the street.

As for the food, yeah pretty nice. We had spaghetti Bol and gnocchi with a few servings of extra limoncello which we were on the house! Good atmosphere, reasonably priced and a fun night overall. For positano this is a casual winner.

My daughter and I stayed in the hotel next door for a week and ate here on four nights. We started comparing other places to "our restaurant". Here's the facts: if you want great food, perfect service, great house wine, nice local atmosphere and reasonable prices, this place is for you. I can't understand how TripAdvisor rank orders restaurants but this place deserves higher.
