We stepped in here without a reservation and were warmly welcomed. Beautiful terrace location. Six of us eating and all meals were lovely. My sons loved the swordfish starters and I loved the large macaroni with rocket and mussels. No cover charge which is unusual...More

Food was great, very nice location and view. Only complaint was that waiter was very rushed and barely gave us time to order even though restaurant was not busy when we were there.

There is no denying the view from the patio of this restaurant is worth it. It is amazing. The service, however, was lacking. We arrived at the restaurant early, and were rudely told, "6:30". That was it. Nothing else. Our friend luckily encountered a couple...More

The view was excellent! Very nice place for dinner. We had Caprese salad and squid ink pasta, both were excellent. Prices were moderate. I would eat here again!

This place has an incredible view, especially during the day. It would be a superb lunch spot. We thought the food left a lot to be desired. I had the seafood risotto, which wasn't very flavorful and did not include much seafood.

We chose this restaurant for the view. It was exceptional. The food was really a nice bonus. The fried shrimp was lightly breaded, very tasty. We also ordered the gnocchi which was fabulous. Red snapper was also very nice, served whole with scales, etc. removed...More

We were a group of 8 people and they accommodated us at the last minute on the outside deck. The view was spectacular and it was the full moon in September. The service was excellent and the owner was very charming and kept the wine...More

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

It would be a great venue as long as the weather is nice, which it should be then. My wife loves tuna tatare and said this was one of the best she had. Everything we had was very good. View is great
