I am so glad we found this place, wonderful food, great service, friendly waiters and so reasonably priced, especially compared to other restaurants in Positano. Try the gnocchi, it's to die for! It's just a shame we found it on our last night in Positano, but it will be our first port of call when we return!

Made a reservation & they sent a car for us! We could see why, it's up the long winding hill with no room to walk. We started with pizza & went on to pasta. The pizza was so good I was barely able to eat any of the pasta. Share a chocolate dessert, like warm lava cake. It's worth every calorie. Really good inexpensive house wine. Worth a trip up the hill.

The food here is just fine, enjoyed their daily specials twice, but the real treat is their fabulous terrace. This is a local's restaurant, but they mostly seem to sit inside. The second night we did too, and noticed they mostly ordered pizza, which we had to admit looked delicious. Next time. The staff is very friendly, Federico speaks great English and is very funny. Really fun place and very good value.

My husband and I went to C'era una Volta for dinner during our honeymoon. Our hotel concierge recommended this laid back, casual restaurant for us after having been to other places like Donna Rosa. The interior was very casual, just like your neighborhood pizza parlor. They had their homemade wine served in simple jugs but we fell in love with this place after trying their seabass! It was a simple whole fish baked with lemon. It was probably the best fish we've ever had. We ended up ordering another whole fish! We'll never forget about this place for having the best fish on our trip to Italy.

We visited this restaurant at the advice of a local. Best tip we could have been given. Hidden gem in Positano. Very unassuming place and one you could easily walk past and not know. We were picked up by their Shuttle. Driver was prompt, professional, and courteous. We enjoyed the entire experience so much, we cancelled reservations at another restaurant in Positano on our last night there just so we could return. Second time was as delicious as the first. Federico was hilarious! He was friendly, attentive, helpful in making and offering meal selections and wine. The place does not break the bank and in the Amalfi Coast, that's a difficult thing to do. Excellent! Would definitely recommend to others. Bravo!
