Went there recently with my wife. This was probably the highlight of our entire trip to Italy. Brillian location and the pastas we both had were simply exquisite. I hope we could come back there soon.

Amazing. The best restaurant on the Amalfi coast and our favorite in Italy. We went twice in the week we were in Positano! It is simple and elegant, yet not fancy. The pasta, pizza and fish - amazing. Molto Bene!

Relaxed atmosphere with totally visible kitchen. Highest quality, freshest ingredients. Wide variety of fish, seafood, meat, poultry, vegetables, salads & soups. Professional waiters. Fabulous wine list specializing in famous & obscure quality Italian wines. We went there every night. Worth every penny.
