Reasonably priced restaurant with a nice view of the sea. Traditional regional menu and good list of wines. Friendly and professional staff. Easy to recommend.

We went on a really hot day and the shady, breezy restautrant was a welcome refuge. They had a reasonable food selection, well served and with a reasonable wine selection. Staff were attentive and polite, the whole place seemed friendly and well looked after.

We went there for a casual lunch and breakfast - the food was great, view was nice. We ordered fresh squeeze orange juice, scrambled eggs on a bed of grilled vegetables - which was awesome. I would definitely recommend this for day time food on the beach.

Pizza, panini's & calzone were very good! Great place to have a quick lunch, glass of vino enjoying all the action of Positano at a reasonable price.

The food was amazing! Great taste of Italy! The staff were awesome, attentive, with great suggestions. The restaurant location was great with a beautiful view of the ocean only a few yards away.

Other than the view the food and vibe of this was average. It was our first night and we did not know better. But during our 9 days and in Italy I believe this was our least exciting meal.

My partner and I had dinner here one night and had a wonderful view of the beach from our table. The staff were very friendly and happy to talk us through the menu. The food was fresh and great Italian dishes. We also stayed at the hotel and cannot recommend this hotel, restaurant and bar high enough. Wonderful!

We on the second floor of the restaurant, which seems a little more upscale than the restaurant on the first floor. View of the beach was very pretty. Food was delicious. Service was very accommodating. We asked for a suggestion for a local dessert wine. The waiter brought it out and let us try it before we ordered. We loved... More

Location was perfect as you get to overlook the beach and sea as well as people-watch at other restaurants. Food was good, although not amazing, and was pricey - but that is Positano in general rather than this restaurant. My husband and I still had a memorable lunch with crisp Prosecco and fresh prawns.

After our shuttle bus for La Tagliata failed to arrive, we called Buca di Bacco at 9:00 asking for a table at 9:30 as I had it in my mind that I wanted a special meal that night, and BdB had been my second choice (should have been my first!). Not only did they accommodate us, they gave us a... More
