My new husband and I had a wonderful time at La Sponda! We came here as part of our honeymoon in Positano and think La Sponda was well worth the price. The service is impeccable and the restaurant itself is stunning and romantic, with hundreds...More

This is a great romantic restaurant. The view is fabulous. The service could not have been better. Although the portions are small, the octopus risotto was tasty. The lobster blu was perfectly cooked. It deserves the high ratings it gets, but you will not leave...More

The restaurant is beautiful and the service is excellent, though somewhat pompous. Their policy requires everyone at the table to order the special menu (Chef's Tasting), or else no one can order it. There were six of us and we found this very inconvenient and...More

The restaurant in itself is beautiful; the lighting of all those candles at night is such a feat to see! They even had people serenade you which made it even more romantic! A fair warning though, it is really warm in the restaurant. My husband...More

The portions are tiny, we went for pizza after our dinner at La Sponda. The main course looked like something brought for tasting... If you decide to have dinner at La Sponda, make sure you have a good lunch or a pizza before your dinner.

This is no doubt a fancy, nice restaurant with good food. However, I think it is a bit overrated as there are tons of restaurants in Positano that are amazing for 1/4 the price. The serving size is very small at La Sonda, so me...More

Oops I mistakenly answered for the restaurant at Villa Franca. We only had dinner here so I cannot help with the breakfast. Dinner at La Sponda was good with a romantic setting.

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.
