Stumbled on the one as it’s a few buildings down from Hotel Montemare. Food was exceptional, service was great. Views were amazing.

My wife and I ate here one night while in Positano. It is lovely place to dine. We had a great table outside overlooking Positano bay. The wait staff was wonderful and attentive to our needs as customers. The food was excellent.

FANTASTIC spot to stop for a lazy lunch. Food was wonderful, view spectacular. Menu is large with variety to satisfy my picky daughter. Best part to her was the dessert.
