Romantic restaurant for our anniversary dinner

We enjoyed a fabulous anniversary dinner on the balcony of this romantic restaurant. The view of the beach at sunset was stunning, the service was excellent, and the food was delicious. Our waiter even went out of his way to relocate some smokers who were encroaching toward our table. There were... read more

I have had dinner at lots of restaurants in Positano, and surely those mentioned in the michelin guide. By comparison I'd say Buca di Bacco is far below its peers and should not be mentioned in the guide. Beer was luke warm and stale. Lobster that was overcooked. Also had a rather tasteless pasta. May be a one-off dip in... More

We technically reserved a table that we didn't get... The food was ok the staff was friendly but don't fall in the dessert trap! It wasn't fresh and the after taste was horrible... Not worth it...

We were looking for a dinner place - The view was nice, the staff very friendly, so we figured we would stay. We ordered an appetizer form the specials list - grilled octopus with cheese and other goodies. It was wonderful! The texture was very soft and not chewy and the favors were delicious. So we had high hopes for... More

During our visit to Positano in June, we had a wonderful dinner sitting outside on the 2nd floor balcony deck. The seafood was delicious, as were the pastas, but it was the stunning view in the balmy air that made this a special spot. To top it off, the prices were reasonable by Positano standards, which was a pleasant surprise.... More

This is one of the many restaurants that are right off Positano beach. The food and service were good, the price was reasonable. Location is very good.

On our first visit to Positano, Buca was suggested by our hotel, what a gem! We ate there a 2nd time that trip and decided on this trip to make it our first dining stop once we arrived. Great pasta, and seafood choices and a fantastic wine list. Great service right on the seaside.

The food is great, the service is great and the prices are great. I give them 3 Greeeeats! The balcony view is the perfect stage for a wonderful meal. The restaurant sits near the beach in the very center of Positano making you confident that you can take in the energy of all that surrounds you!
