This is one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. The food was phenomenal. Gennaro served us four courses of pasta, meat, fish and cheese. He is an amazing chef and host. Gennaro topped it off with fabulous wine. You absolutely have to go.

I almost don't want to share how great this place is so it's not too crowded when I return. Everything Gennaro touches turns to gold. We enjoyed it so much we went back multiple times. His wine suggestions were on point, his food is delicious and his love for music and dancing comes out while he's cooking. Excellent overall experience.... More

Great place and atmosphere. We go every time we are on the Amalfi Coast. One man show Gennaro rocks!

Yes you could have white glove service at Le Sireneuse. Yes I've enjoyed the views and great refined cuisine at La Terra above positano. But for me, hands down the best dining experience is with Gennaro at Vivaro Wine Bar in Praiano. He'll only take up to a certain number of guests, so he doesn't get too busy to treat... More

We had the most amazing time here - in fact it was the best night of our trip. Denario was a wonderful and gracious host. There is no menu - you nominated either fish or meat for 30 euro and Denario will feed you until you burst. He is the cook, waiter and sommelier, so you have to be patient,... More

Our group ate here recently during a two week stay in Praiano. It was the best meal of our trip. The food was delicious and Gennaro was amazing keeping everyone in the place fed. You will not believe the amount of food he serves and the quality is excellent. Three of our group chose the seafood while the other three... More

We visited here during our recent stay in Praiano - so worth it! We arrived just as Gennarro was opening although several other tables were already reserved. We were given the option of fish or meat - and from there Gennarro put on a show, bringing delicious and beautiful dishes (a total of 4 courses) that were completely filling. It... More

Very chilled laid back restaurant. Great food, great wine and Gennaro is an absolute legend. If you're looking for a menu or like to eat and run this is not the place for you. Just let Gennaro cook for you and you won't be disappointed or hungry when you leave. We ate there twice and both nights were fantastic, highly... More

You must experience the one man show and food of Gennaro, the owner, chef, waiter, and sommelier. No menu, just his cooking for the evening. Trust him! He's an Italian Buddha. A great time. Much fun. Friendly atmosphere.
