Dined here one evening with my husband in June. Location-wise the restaurant is very good with a great view over Positano. Tip: don't sit on the noisy roadside - ask for table on terrace behind. Sadly the view is the best thing about the place....More

We were seated in the lower section, which can be cramped, so I suggest the upper area with better views and a breeze. Many menu items will be more recognizable to Americans and not commonly found at other restaurants. We thorougly enjoyed the pasta dish...More
