We took the cooking class and the food was fabulous. It was much better than another place we ate at on the beach. Very friendly and fun staff. Excellent service. Overall, a wonderful experience!

Prices in Positano can be high, but this restaurant, on the first floor above a restaurant on the piazza, is pretty affordable considering its location and service. Excellent wine and food and very hospitable, classy service. A superb view across the packed piazza to watch the comings and goings while you eat, but a step back from being in the midst of it all.

The location is perfect--with big windows overlooking the beach. The ambience is great--it's comfortable and festive, and not at all stuffy. The staff was quite friendly. Unfortunately, we didn't enjoy the food. It was bland and just not very tasty.

We opted for this place based on a recommendation, and were glad we did. While only a short flight of stairs up from the beach, the food and atmosphere here are a major step up from the usual tourist fare. The food, wine, and coffee were all good, as was the service.
