First night in Positanno and our hotel recommended that we go there instead of downtown because it is a lot easier and less money. We were a little hesitant but went and were not disappointed. The pasta was excellent and the sea bass was cooked perfectly. They also had excellent desserts. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. And the view is perfect.

we arrived positano quite late and so we just wanted dinner nearby our hotel. we were attracted to this restaurant because of the music. we ordered bruschettas as appetizers and the linguine with shellfish as mains. the linguine came with maybe 8 clams and 6 small mussels? it was so so. then the lady started singing. oh......my........gosh....... it was that painful. we looked at the other patrons and some were laughing, but most were cringe-ing from her voice. the bill came up to 60 euros. for mediocre shellfish linguine, a glass of white wine, a bottle of water, it was quite price-y. we had better food at 2 other restaurants for the same price (bottle of wine included). the waitresses looked bored and couldn't wait to get out of there. wouldn't go back.

Seasonal special, fresh zucchini in a non cream white sauce with fresh pasta - simple but delicious, they use a local cheese similar to pecorino

Visited this restaurant on the way down the hill in Positano. Parked our car at the top and it's about a 2 minute walk down on the right hand side. Had a meal with 4 of my family, and it came to around 100Euro. Lovely starter of Bruschetta and mains of Spaghetti Carbonara. Check out my picture for the view we had, as we went for lunch Monday afternoon when it was quite quiet!
