We went here on recommendation of a friend; and were surprised when we turned up (by boat) that it’s a very casual place, and looks like a fish and chip shop from the outside! We rung and booked in advance but there were other tables...More

Based on the many negative reviews I almost didn't bother coming here and I'm very happy myself and friends went. I really had my guard up expecting the worst but I have NOTHING negative to report! Luckily I had the property manager at the villa...More

After 10 days in Italy we hit maybe one of the most over rated restaurants in Europe. We arrived by boat to be disparaged the second we stepped into the restaurant. First, it was a big crisis to seat us. They couldn’t seem to seat...More

Menu very plain. Food overly salty. Best part was boat ride. We told the server the pasta was laced in salt but he didn’t care. Don’t waste your time or your money. It’s the most over rated place we’ve ever been.

We had just finished the Path of the Gods and well, looked pretty homeless. The path lets you out on the main road a kilometer or two from Positano. We were spent and wanted a bus or a taxi in the opposite direction to get...More

Make reservations and get there early. Nice beach with around 50 guest. Rent a chair and enjoy swimming in the water. With our reservation you will be seated with every guest at the same time which makes the restaurant hectic. It took a while for...More

You could try and drop them an e-mail through their website and see if you get a response (you can't reserve by e-mail, but maybe a general enquiry they might try), otherwise you have to call them anyway to book a table, so... More
