Food is delicious as it's a bit different from the typical italian restaurants. Food here is so tasty that you'll want to eat more than 1 dish! My favourite dish was the dessert: Chocolate mousse made by Filomena. I was told that it was the best desert in the area, so I had a go and I can say it's an amazing dessert! Try it, you won't regret it! Amazing setting and super friendly staff.

We had the best meal of our trip at this Taverna. Raw seafood plate was beautiful and I had beef carpaccio. The quality of the ingredients and care that goes into plate is reflected in the delicious flavours! Service was friendly and professional. You must try this place !! Oh and kingfish was beautiful too! Cooked perfectly and so fresh.

What's one more 5 outta 5 review? What more can I tell you other than eat here? The venue appears fancy when you walk in but you can wear a suit or come in jeans with your family (we saw both) and feel at home. The same with the service - it feels fancy but EVERY ONE of our servers was friendly, warm, sincere and kind. They really cared that yet one more American tourista have a great experience. And we did. Twice. The second night, our last of 7 in Positano, they didn't have room for us but we whined and they found space. Maybe that's what you get with a family run place. And don't let a quick glance at the menu think it's unexciting. The mixed vegetable antipasti sounds dull but it is to die for as is the roasted octopus. The bluefish hamburger - WOW. Not what you'd expect but uniquely delicious as was the kingfish fillet. The couple we were travelling with loved the lamb medallions so much (and they are as particular as we are) they ordered it both nights. Wine list and our server's recommendations on the affordable side (like the rest of the menu) hit the mark. Not one disappointment either night. We left both nights feeling like we made new friends.

All I can say is if you are in Positano or Praaino this place is not to be missed. Great service and food in a beautiful setting. Seemed to be a good mix of tourist as well as locals. Prices were moderate in my opinion. The offer a car service to help with transportation to the restaurant.

This is the second time we visit a restaurant.
Good location between Praiano and Positano with private parking,
The food in the restaurant is simply amazing, on the one hand traditional Italian and simple and on the other modern and sophisticated.
Without doubt our favorite restaurant in the area.
