“Lovely terrace views”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

This restaurant is set on a terrace that overlooks the bay & is set back/down from the main road that runs into town. Everybody here is so friendly & the food was superb. Can get very busy in the evening, which says a lot. This is a "must visit" during your stay.

“25th anniversary dinner”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Excellent view. Food was great. We had seafood risotto, big portion and tasty. Egg plant ravioli was delicious. Pizza marinara was big, tasty. Would have given it five stars if service was better. Very slow and no follow up. We did not even get a maître d check up on the table. Limoncello liquor after dinner was fantastic!

“Amazing food and view!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Stunning views and delicious food! The service was lovely, we went there twice during our 5 days in Positano. Our waiter, Giuseppe, offered us limoncello drinks the 1st time and other drinks with antipasti for our second visit, he was really lovely and it made the experience even better! I had the seafood risotto and then the tuna filet, both amazing, I deeply recommend!
Unlike you would think, it was not that expensive, and definitely worth every Euro!

“Beautiful view, exceptional view”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

This has a stunning view over the beach at Positano and the staff were kind enough to make rom for us at late notice in a booked out restaurant.
The ambience matched the food - superb including lightly fried cod fish balls (that we're square) and seafood that was local and freshly caught.
The seafood risotto was very flavoursome as was everything that came our way.
One of the highlights of our trip.

“Spectacular location”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The key is the deck and the view. At the edge of town, it is superior. The food was very good, the service was also very good. Not brilliant, but very good. It was not too busy and that helped, and there was some wind, but the canopies protected us.
The food came out quickly and had a good presentation.
I thought the price was reasonable.
