Amazing. The best restaurant on the Amalfi coast and our favorite in Italy. We went twice in the week we were in Positano! It is simple and elegant, yet not fancy. The pasta, pizza and fish - amazing. Molto Bene!

Relaxed atmosphere with totally visible kitchen. Highest quality, freshest ingredients. Wide variety of fish, seafood, meat, poultry, vegetables, salads & soups. Professional waiters. Fabulous wine list specializing in famous & obscure quality Italian wines. We went there every night. Worth every penny.

Just finishing our dinner of salad and pizza, and are thrilled with our selections. The waiters couldn’t be more friendly, offering a small amuse-bouche to start and spending time discussing wine selection. The pizzas were fresh and delicious. I can see why this restaurant has...More
