Do not go there since the team was arrogant. The pizzas are far better on the beach and also with energetic staff!

Simply, we loved this place. I'd seen the good reviews on Trip Advisor and when we stumbled upon it during a walk we decided to stall till lunch. We were glad we did as the food was great, the service was wonderful (genuinely happy and literally singing), and we found the place just authentically Italian... as authentic as a place... More

This was a great experience with a singing, happy, waiter who was very gracious and friendly. The pizza and Caprese were delightful. The house red and the complimentary limoncello were great and the prices were reasonable. I would recommend lunch or dinner at this great little spot.

The husband and I were staying in the hotel right next door, and I had been eyeing it our whole stay. We finally went on our last night, and I'm so glad we did! Some of the best food, atmosphere and staff we could have asked for! They greet you with Champagne! I loved the lemon trees, and they give... More

We were recommended this restaurant from a local who is friends with the owner. We were staying at Hotel Villa Franca so it was close and we decided to give it a shot. Our waiter was clearly there to do his job not to add to the experience at all. When we asked for recommendations all we got was "everything... More

We want here for dinner tonight. The ravioli and gnocchi were delicious as was the bruschetta. The tiramisu was sub par, but everything else was great and they were super nice. Nothing fancy, just good classic Italian fare. They finished the meal off with complimentary limoncello.

Evening meal of G&T, pizza and a bottle of wine. Staff very friendly and welcoming. The weather that evening was moving towards chilly and we were provide with fleece blankets to ward the cold away. That's good. Pizza was well topped and cooked. G&T was, well, .... strong. Home-style measures. Your dining table is about 1m from the narrow one-way... More

Stayed in Positano 6 nights and dined here 3 times. This family run business takes pride in its service & food and keeping the prices affordable compared to restaurants very close by. We dined elsewhere but preferred Ristorante Saraceno not just because of the price but in particular their food and friendly nature - hence eating there 3 times. We... More

Fantastic. Price not like rest of Coast and especially not like anything by the water. FLAVORS excellent, seafood fresh, and I could tell a different flavor smoke on the pizza. sure enough they use cherry wood, lighter, sweeter scent and taste. Not overly smokey or toasted. Worth the walk up, or take the minibus. a MUST eat. Stay off the... More
