We have eaten here twice in the past two weeks and each evening was great. I had the squid ink pasta which is brilliant. We also had the tuna carpaccio also excellent. Very nice staff and one of the great Positano views from their terrace

This is a lovely place to eat. The food is good & reasonably cheap & the view is stunning. There is a heartwarming story of the founder - Il Capitano - in the menu & it gives the whole place a very personal family feel....More

This restaurant scores 10/10 for a stunning location and views to die for. Sitting in the open air in warm temperatures with amazing views up and down the coast at night is hard to beat. But that is not why you go to restaurants and...More

After a long day of travelling we ended up here for a quick dinner. The food was very good. We shared a Rocket Salad and a Pizza. Price was 'mid' and the view worthwhile. I recommend it.
