We were fortunate to have booked a balcony table, right at the edge overlloking the sparkling lights of the houses, beach and boats. Seafood pasta, beautiful and excellent wine. A short stroll up the steps from the beach of Positano, recommended.

Ate here the first night in town and we could not have picked a better place. There is an amazing view over the town and harbor. The food was excellent and not overly priced. The walk to the restaurant from our hotel was not bad...More

Enjoyed juices and an omelette here after arriving early in Positano. Staff friendly and do an amazing job dodging the cars while crossing the road with arms full of food. The view is just perfect , a good place to absorb the sun and atmosphere.

We booked ‘a table with a view’ so were disappointed when we returned in the evening and all the tables with views were taken. The waiter took us downstairs to a terrace that I had not even noticed before. We were sat at the edge...More

Our hotel raved about this place, and though we already had dinner reservations at Buca Di Bacco, our hotel convinced us to go here instead. We were seated by a zero personality waiter who seemed to be inconvenienced by our showing up. We looked over...More
