Had dinner there during our 3 week stay in Positano. They offer free pick up and return to your hotel/villa. Drivers were very nice and spoke some English. The food was very good and the view was spectacular. Good ambience for sure. The only thing that keeps us from rating 5 star is a little rushed. We went for early... More

This was one of the highlights of our vacation. The restaurant sent a car to Positano to bring us up the beautiful mountain. We were greeted by the owner, seated at a table overlooking the ocean. Our starter of sardines on lemon leaves was a departure from our regular appetizer palate. Scrumptious and surprising. Prawns, pasta, dessert and fabulous wines.... More

Our tour guide made reservations for my husband and I to dine here. The meal started with a great view of Positano and got better from there. The foil was wonderful, the service on point. The highlight of the evening was the dessert. The Tiramisu was a piece of heaven. Best my husband and I have ever tasted.

Paccheri with eggplant and smoked cheese...Gluten free was OUTSTANDING I had the filet with green pepper sauce. It was good. The grilled Vegetables were fantastic. They bring over a free little bruschetta app....crazy good and if your GF, they will make one without the bread. The tomatoes were the best in Positano. The dessert was crazy good....Pannacotta...do not miss it.... More

Our hotel recommended this for the best views which they were. However the place lacked ambience and any charm. Food was pretty tasteless to be honest and very expensive and we are not ones to shy away for paying for good food!! Service was a bit bland. See why they need the free shuttle as is a long way up...

Just spent 3 weeks touring Italy by car from the Amalfi coast to Lake Como and had the opportunity to try many different Italian restaurants and value propositions. Conclusion, this was the worst by quite a margin in terms of what you got for what you gave. Food was nothing special compared to those restaurants charging just about half and... More

We have friends who work with Giada's show & they suggested we try this gorgeous restaurant. Made reservations with the owner & scheduled a free shuttle pickup at our hotel in Positano. We wanted to get there for sunset, but alas, it was raining. The owner & his staff are super friendly & almost felt personally responsible for the weather... More

We had dinner here after hiking the path of the gods and it was our best meal in Italy yet! Everything was fresh and flavorful especially the vegetables from the garden and the catch of the day (red snapper) in lemon sauce. The risotto was so creamy that it practically melted.. the wine list was great too! Highly recommended and... More

Basically, the food was mediocre (you can find the same for less or better food in Positano), no need to get a lift up to Montepertuso. We ordered the Antipasti platter to share (which was just italian salami/meats and some pickled veggies for 15Euros), Grilled fish and seafood risotto. Everything tasted ok but nothing to rave about. The fish was... More

This restaurant was recommended to us, so we thought we'd try it out. One huge plus is they will come and pick you up and take you back home - no need to tackle the Positano streets and find parking. The menu is quite extensive and should cover all tastes. However I found the pricing on the expensive side, especially... More
