Don't be put off by the diminutive appearance of this homely restaurant and bar, or the slightly confusing organisation of the menu. The food was excellent with strong local cuisine and wine choice with personalised service of a committed and professional proprietor. Thanks!

A delightful setting in a gorgeous Positano courtyard. Great people watching as everyone makes his or her way down to the beach. Food was fresh, tasty, and light. Service was prompt, but there was no sense of rushing.

This was a hidden gem. Best spaghetti & meatballs. Everything was very fresh. Great proprietor who enjoys having patrons that appreciate his food.
