Seriously - I thought here was something addictive in it. The taste was subtle and understated but absolutely mesmerizing. Like everything Italian - not overdone. Just wholesome real food. I miss it.

Had bruscheta by the ever rich view. Loved this restaurant since it made up for the bad experience elsewhere.

The food is delicious. The service? Well, be patient, because it's a little haphazard. It helps to order wine, so you're enjoying the scenery until your food comes. You pay a bit more than you would in other restaurants further up the hill, but this one comes with a view that's pretty spectacular. Worth the stop.

My husband had been eyeing this spot for a while we were staying in Positano, so we finally tried it. It's a little pricy but it had breathtaking views and super fresh seafood. My husband got seafood and I got pasta, should have gotten the seafood cause it was heavenly. My husband has been trying to find a dish like... More

This restaurant was suggested by our hotel and was excellent. We had the gnocchi and Alfredo pasta, delicious. They picked us up which is a great plus when you are in Positano!

A late afternoon lunch with requisite wine was delicious. The view, as are most in Positano, was exquisite. The food arrived in a timely manner, the waiter so professional, and the relaxed atmosphere made it one if many wonderful afternoons in this beautiful town.

You get a good view of the Positano beach and the gulf of Naples from here. The food was fine, slightly better than average, and fresh enough It's nothing out of the ordinary though, the prices are reasonable for Positano but might be considered a bit high elsewhere

The jovial banter commenced when we walked up to place our reservation a day in advance. The entertaining dialogue continued as we enjoyed delicious caprese salad. We sampled the penne alla Siciliana (penne with mozerella, eggplants and basil in tomato sauce), and the paccheri with prawns, pumpkin and smoked cheese. These dishes define del dente and were mouthwatering. Our dinner... More

We went here for breakfast and it was nice enough.I wouldn't say the food is amazing, basic enough but definitely worth a visit for breakfast/coffee/lunch..fantastic views over the bay!

My wife and I were actually waiting for a different place to open, but in the interim we decided to stop and have an appetizer and some drinks. We ordered mussels in tomato sauce which were ok. Then we ordered house wine which was nice...a little cheap in taste. Lastly I ordered a beer. The view was beautiful, atmosphere was... More
