With a nice view of the sea close to the small harbour this restaurant in a hotel offers very good food, excellent service and a good but slightly pricey wine list. Prices generallöjtnant somewhat higher than comparable restaurants in Positano.

Aside from our hotel, this was the only restaurant that we decided to visit a second time for dinner.

The location is excellent, right on the beachfront which enables you to indulge in watching people wandering along the seafront between courses.

Service is impeccable...polite, attentive, but never over-bearing. Given it was a week between our first and second visits it was an unexpected surprise for one of the waiters to say "welcome back" when we came in.

The dinner menu is generally fine dining rather than more hearty traditional Italian cuisine. Parrticularly memorable for me was the tuna cooked three ways...absolutely great.

Ordered pizza Salsicchia with smoked cheese. Nice presentation, crispy, quick, good taste and good service. Exceptional experience :) Anyway, the ice cream bar service experience was a complete disaster and makes the visit a "four" in total.

Have had lunch here every year for the last 10 years. It is one of the best (if not the best) restaurant in Positano. Great for watching the people going to and from the ferries.

This is more towards fine dining with white table clothes etc, but the food is very very good. Started with the aubergine melanzane, layers of aubergine cooked with a tomato sauce and burrata, then ravioli stuffed with ricotta and basil (perfectly cooked pasta with just the right amount of "bite", Roast chicken thigh with croquette potatoes - has been craving chicken and it was perfect, Finished with tiramisu. Wine was Cervaro Della Sala (chardonnay from Umbria - a great wine).

Cannot fail to mention the staff who are very friendly and welcoming. Just the right amount of attentiveness while you are eating without being in your face.

Cannot rate this restaurant highly enough - Go here it will not disappoint
