Wow! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this restaurant. My husband and I visited last summer, and plan to return this August with our family. The food was exquisite, service was wonderful, and the view was breathtaking! The music was so romantic. Our dining experience at La Sponda had a lot to do with our magical experience... More

My wife and I dined here on October 5, 2016, while we were staying in Positano on our honeymoon and it was without a doubt one of the best dining experiences of my life. Nestled in the Le Sirenuse hotel, La Sponda was a dining experience unlike any other with the combination of ambiance, views, food, and the wine. The... More

I found Le Sirenuse hotel on Instagram and Pinterest while researching for my honeymoon and knew I had to stop in Positano. It looked so beautiful and picturesque. I really wanted to stay in the hotel but we didn't have time we could only pass through so I figured eating at the restaurant would be second best. I emailed for... More

We had a very good dinner at La Sponda, but it fell short of "great". The restaurant tries to be very "European Traditional" with service and even the food (to some degree). Think very buttoned up servers, food brought out with silver tents, etc. The meal started out impeccably, but service began to deteriorate at the entree. The food was... More

Worth the hype. Most restaurants with great views do not offer great food. La Sponda is an exception. The location is perfect, on the balcony of the Sirenuse hotel overlooking the Med and Positano. The food was likewise great. Fine dinning at its best.

Charming restaurant in the heart of Le Sirenuse Hotel. The restaurant is entirely lit by 450 candles. The cuisine is contemporary Italian, using only the freshest local ingredients. The view is breathtaking as is the impeccable service.
