A wonderful terrace overlooking the bay off the Amalfi coast - I was mesmerized watching the changing cloud formations and sunset. The service was helpful and english was good. A bit chilly as the evening fell - but the views are to die for! My pizza (Mozzarella and ham) and beer were just what I wanted after a drive along the incredible coastline. The walk down to the restaurant can be a bit tiring - but save energy for the walk back up!

We were undecided about this restaurant but the view was so amazing we thought we would try & we were certainly not disappointed. Good service & amazing food. We had grilled vegetables & tuna carpaccio to start which were both full of flavour, fresh & very tasty. Then the monkfish with pasta for my partner & the ravioli for me. We loved both dishes so much. We had lemon tart for dessert which was ok but then neither of us really go for desserts normally. Would recommend this place

This is a great place to eat for a stunning view. It is really a must just to eat while looking over the water and hills. Make sure it's a nice night as you only get the view if you eat outside! The servers are quick to bring you blankets if you need. Selection was very heavy on fish/seafood, but there are a few alternatives. We had a great beef dish and an okay lamb chop. The drinks were a bit expensive (8 euro for a small daiquiri).

We arrived just before the restaurant opened and they offered to seat us early... Awesome. They made the most delicious pizza (Diavola) that we have had. The dough was so fresh and light. Plus, the waitress offered her suggestion for a red wine which was spot on (half bottle selection is great here). Sadly, it was raining but the view from the inside lower level is still wonderful. The food is priced reasonably and the restaurant is spacious. I recommend this place any day, especially a rainy day. P. S. Try the Taurasi Dei Feudi wine from the Di San Gregorio region.

We had dinner here on our last night in Positano, wanting to eat somewhere with a great view. We hadn't heard anything about this restaurant, but took a chance, since any other restaurant with a view had exorbitant prices. We had a gluten free pasta, and a regular pasta, with salads. Both our meals were very good, although not quite as good as Il Fornillo. We also enjoyed a wonderul wine which we always have trouble finding - Aglianico.
