A group of us were picked up at our hotel, 6 people, taken up a hillside in Positano, to s beautiful stone structure in the clouds. It was the best meal; country Italian fresh organic dishes prepared by Mama. Served by the family. Too many dishes to list. The wine was local, like everything else. A fun night.

Wonderful homemade Italian pasta and bread. We loved the Italian sausage, lasagna, gnocchi and gluten-free options including pasta, salad and steak. Vegan and vegetarian options are also available. Dessert included tiramisu, panzerotto, and coffee ice cream. La Familia is welcoming and friendly. Ask to sit upstairs.

We visited La Famiglia twice last week. Once just for drinks and another time for a late dinner. Great wines by the glass, fantastic pizza and even better service. We opted to sit at the bar both times and had a great experience. Pizza's are big enough for 2 or 3 people!

Spanish, french,english,italian and a bit of German. I had the lasagne bolognese and my wife had the grilled octopus fettuccine special. Both were outstanding and comparable to a fine italian restaurant in... More

First i debated between 4 and 5 stars. If they had 4 1/2, that's what my rating would have been. I went with my wife and another couple. We had appetizers and four different dishes. Each one was very good to excellent. I was a very happy guy and enjoyed this meal immensely. In fact all 4 of us were... More
