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!

They have a very poor menu, it was very hard for us to choose anything that we really want to eat. We enjoyed only octopus on blue potato purée.

Dear IzmirTErdal, I am very sorry you could not find enough choice for your taste. That sounds very strange to me, considering that: 1) Our menu currently features 7 starters, 7 pasta dishes, 6 main courses, 6 desserts, 15 Pizzas (as everybody can see on our website). We do change our proposal every season, but we always keep around the... More

Great food. Fast quick service. You can watch the chefs cooking your home made pasta. It is not tacky. Not overcrowded. One of the food we had in the area. The menus are innovative yet they use local produce and methods to cook.

Great restaurant just outside of Positano. Food was excellent and it was full of local Italians. Staff was very accommodating to our daughter who is allergic to gluten. Highly recommend.
