First night in Positano after traveling from rome ... restaurant located on the main beach with a great view of the ocean. Large menu, gluten free options listed on menu plus they had pasta. I had seafood risotto and had some sort of seafood in every bite. My wife had a white fish (name escapes me) which was very good. No gluten free bread (only crackers). Wine was delisiouso! Would recommend right st sunset. Portions biggest in Italy I have seen in 5 dinners

Prices in Positano are extreme. We were so happy to find this moderately priced restaurant with lovely views of the coast. For the location, the wine and menu was quite reasonably priced. Good food. Regional dishes. Nice views.

Went there for lunch. The view is fantastic.. you can look out far at the sea or near at the beach or at the street from .. prices are not cheap but it’s a restaurant. The scallops , duck confit and meatballs spaghetti were delicious and especially good after days of pizzas and pastas. Service is ok, I seen worse at other places.
The ground floor on the beach serves bar food and gelato, recommend the pistachio gelato.

We had a lovely meal for Sunday lunch. Our table ordered various items and all were very tasty. The ravioli and muscles were quite large servings, making the price reasonable. The garden salad wasn’t anything exciting for the price, but the balsamic vinegar available was delicious. Overall, the prices were a bit more expensive but given the setting, it is understandable. We would eat there again.
