When a local of 38 years says it's his favorite place for Italian food he wants lying. Hands down best Italian food in Positano. Highly recommend ravioli, pizza and zucchini appetizer. Surrounded by locals. Must dine

The restaurant offered free shuttle service to and from the B & B we were staying at. A classy place with reasonable prices. Nice menu. Good wine list. Service was very good. Open kitchen allows diners to see the food preparation. Highly recommend!

Can't say enough. Service was super helpful and warm. Accommodated kids with a custom pasta dish. The mixed seafood antipasti was amazing. Rabbit pasta and grilled stuffed baby squid amazing. I would happily return many times!
