We had as good a meal here as we did anywhere in Positano. La Tagliata may have been better because of the volume of food and the view, but it is in a different category (Fixed price, no pasta, grilled meats). This place had a great variety from pizza, to pasta, to grilled fish and meats.Pasta specials were exceptional. I had a piece of grilled tuna that was a generous portion perfecting cooked. Service was great and very friendly. It can be deceiving from the outside. It looks like a pizza joint, but the quality and variety is top notch . Great value, you'll love it. Not in the center of town by higher up the mountainside. I recommend without question. Manga bene!

Although it looks like a little roadside dive from the road, this place is amazing. The huge, lighted patio seems to hang on the edge of the mountain and overlooks Positano. The waitstaff was very attentive and the owner was an utterly charming and proud restauranteur whose food recommendations were spot on. The gnocchi may have been the best I ever had! I guarantee you will enjoy your meal here!

If you are looking for great carry out pizza. This is the place. My husband and my friend's husband stumbled upon it and brought us back some awesome pizzas. The next day, our last in Positano, we decided to walk down to the little pizza place to eat. Fredrico was glad that the guys came back with the rest of the family. He led us through the restaurant out to a terrace that hung out over the cliff, a breathtaking view of Positano cascading down the cliff below. Fredrico has a big, friendly personality. He makes you feel like family. We pretty much said, just bring whatever is really good and Fredrico did not disappoint from the wine to the sea fresh sardines, shrimp and octopus to the chilled limoncello for dessert. One of the most memorable meals that we have ever had!!!

We were in Positano while it was still considered "winter"........so there were VERY FEW restaurants that were even open! This restaurant was small, but the food & service were perfect! We had great house wine and the waiter was very eager to keep us happy!
Greatly enjoyed our meal!

The food wasn't great. I had risotto that tasted more like Chinese rise (no offense but that's not risotto).
