Great for people watching

This restaurant overlooks the main beach of Positano. The food and service are both very good and reasonably priced for the area and the quality.

If you are in Positano this has to be a little stop for you. The view is amazing and they make the best home made fresh peach bellini. You cannot go wrong. Give the bellini a try. Yummy

We had a great waiter with an excellent sense of humor, so the evening was not a total waste. The food was plentiful, but of average quality. The atmosphere was noisy with many people who appeared to be dining out for the first time in their lives. The food was not expensive, but be careful to check the prices on... More

Superb venue overlooking this beach. Perfect venue when on holiday, its what life is all about. Great weather, really tasty food and perfect place to share time with your loved one. You are right in the thick of some very expensive quality hotels here, and I allowed myself to think, how does the man with everything arrive into a such... More

Our family really enjoyed taking a break from the sun and heat to relax in Buca di Bacco! We were greeted by Francesco, who brought our drinks swiftly, and gave us time to decide on what the four of us wanted. I had a main dish salad with grilled chicken, which was so huge, I could not finish....so fresh and... More

Perfect location at the beach. After ordering our meals the came really fast. The food tasted totally not special as you would expect for the price they charged. When we paid, we did not see the waiter back with the change. Never back again here!
