We went here with our friends and were not disappointed. The ravioli's were very good. I liked the way the kitchen was visible.

The service, ambience, and especially the food was excellent. I had a special langostino pasta that was one of the best meals I have ever had. This is a must dine place if you are in Positano.

We had great time at the restaurant. The dishes are unique, very good and combines the local cousin with high end ingredients. Great service. They did more than expected finding non-menu pastas for the children. The price are really reasonable.

I never leave reviews but this was necessary. The pizza is heavenly but you cannot leave this restaurant without trying the cheesecake for dessert. It’s made with buffalo cheese and it is a must. It’s fluffy and delicious. Must eat.
