This restaurant has an increidible view of positano and praiana town, but the food needs to improve. We ordered a pizza that was not even well cooked. No that tasty. I will recommend it just to have a beer and enjoy the view

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
