Lit by hundreds of candles and waited on by a small army, this was a wonderful place for an anniversary dinner. Not the best food we had in Italy but you're paying for the whole romantic experience here. Views, candles, service, food.

If you're after the ambience and would like to be served by multiple staff, go for it. But if you'd rather have good Italian food, go elsewhere (like Da Vincenzo). The fish portion was too small for the price you're paying. Even the top restaurants in New York and other major cities would give you more without paying as much. Would taste better too. Overall because of the prices, you'd expect more but will be disappointed.

This restaurant is possibly the most romantic place in Positano! The atmosphere is very special with live but very subtle music played by a cord duet.... The room is lit nearly exclusively by hundreds of candles... The food is delicious and of Michelin star quality and the service is amazing... Possibly the best we have ever had.. Including in many Michelin starred restaurants in London... Thank you to La Sponda staff, cooks, musicians and management team for an unforgetable dinner!!

Had a 450 euro dinner during April 2014 with my husband and 2 kids.
Would say that the place is magnificent , service us impeccable , atmosphere was classy and inviting and yet ....
Food was sooooooo lacking !
Ordered the blue lobster dinner and got some so el Dante linguini my theeth were knocking, with bits of lobsters . It was of poor design and taste... Appetizers were somewhat of better creativity but mediocre at best.
Go only for the coffee and desert and music and beautiful decor !!!

We visited this restaurant based on other reviews, and our friends made reservations for the same evening! The service was exceptional from the time we walked into the restaurant until the time we left. No detail was left untouched as our wait staff made certain all was taken care of. The wine steward helped pick a very good wine with little fuss. The food was excellent and I'm not quite sure what could have been better, although my meal was not in my "top five" of all-time....I'm not quite sure what was lacking but it was not much. Our Brazilian friends also enjoyed the meal and all four of us had a wonderful time. The location and view of the restaurant is spectacular, and the ambience and setting is beyond excellent. Our next trip to Positano we would like to stay at the Hotel (Le Sirenuse) as well as visiting the restaurant again.
