We went here on our last night in positano and wished it had been our first so we could go back again! Service was great, wine chosen by Frederico was excellent, and the food was fresh and tasty. Zucchini flower starter, squid and bean starter, and homemade gnocchi were standouts! I wanted to order every special they had, but resisted.

Very well priced restaurant with cosy feel. Food is excellent and authentic not like many tourist traps in the area. Spaghetti with clams and tuna steak were a standout. Staff are keen to help and view from balcony is worth the trip.

This was one of the best meals we had during our 2 week trip to Italy. It was a short walk from our Villa which was handy, although I hear they also offer a pick-up service. Everything we ordered was excellent, we especially would recommend ordering from the daily specials menu, the Gnocchi and the Zucchini Flower were amazing. In all, we ordered 2 starters, 2 main meals, 1 ltr of wine and 4 Limoncello's, we couldn't believe our eyes when the bill only came to 44 euros, it was much better value for money (and better food) than we found in the more touristy restaurants in down-town Positano. Well worth a visit.

Honestly, best resturaunt in Positano! Off the beaten path; very authentic. Federico was an amazing host and had us laughing the whole time.

The food was amazing... And CHEAP!! Compared to everything downtown and by the beach, this place is a steal!! We got a liter of house vino for 6Euro and pizzas from 5.50 Euro. The specials all sounded amazing and fresh, although I did not personally get one. There was plenty on the menu to keep me occupied.

It is everything you want! We had to return two nights later for some more delicious food and fun!

We were visiting Positano with Tauck tours, and had a free evening on our own for dinner. My daughter found this this great restaurant on Trip Advisor. They picked us up right from our hotel, and we were treated to a wonderful meal and even better service and hospitality! We loved Frederico, he made the evening so special for Mom, myself and daughter! The food was excellent, I highly recommend you try it, you won't be disappointed!
