Best Dinner we had in Positano! Friendlly staff and great wine. My suggestion is have dinner at the begining of your stay so you can go again during the stay. Delicious!!

Had supper here on an impulse, good welcome and service. The food was excellent and the wine waiter very good, being end of season, he did not have the bottle I selected (€30) but offered another similar but older from the list (€45) at the same price. Nice touch and makes you feel they care about service. Good place that... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a recommendation from our hotel. This place is fantastic. There is no ocean view but the place is filled with artwork and their outdoor space is lovely. The food is delicious! The wine menu is extensive and they have great selections. They have a full menu but then they also feature specials.... More

The local lobster was mushy and scarce The side "mixed vegetables" were pickles???, mushy stuffed eggplant that seemed to have been the remains from some one else's plate and the fried zucchini??? I don't eat fried food but they assured me it was a wonderful side??? The sine guy had no interest in what I really wanted just pushed it... More

Positano is crazy busy in the season, especially close to the sea, and this is a quiet respite. It's like eating in a combination art gallery and antique shop. The menu choices are so good it makes it hard to have just one meal there. My pasta with shrimp was so good I refused to share with anyone else!

We had a great lunch here and have been here before. The stuffed zucchini flowers were delicious. My husband had ravioli which was also delicious. I have fried shrimp an calamari also very good. Nice find for lunch in an unusual venue.

This is a treat of a place for special occasions. Pricey but a lovely atmosphere and professional staff, and super food. If a party of 6-8 ask to eat at the round table at the back of the restaurant, however tempting eating of the outside tables might seem.

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend. Our first meal on Amalfi coast. Super delicious and not crowded at 230. I ordered fish with thinly sliced potatoes and veggies and hubby ordered pasta. All very tasty!
