We sat in the terrace section to have a light lunch. One appetizer (mozzarella and prosciutto), one dessert (cannoli), and an iced tea came out to something like 25 euros. The food was fine and they did bring out bread and olive oil but...meh. I've had better and at a much lower cost. The service and the setting were nice... More

This restaurant is well positioned for a good sea view during your meal and the panorama over the Amalfi coastline is relaxing. The food is well-prepared but nothing out of the ordinary for Italy. Prices are on the high side. A favorite with bus tour companies, so the owners are not challenged much to maintain high standards: the punters will... More

As it often happens this customer has confused our Restaurant Buca di Bacco with another restaurant below to us that is called Bar Buca di Bacco - Restaurant La Pergola. There is no doubt about the confusion becasue our Restaurant is closed for the winter maintenance from 1st November until April 5th!!! Best regards, More

First of all the position is great. The view from the terrace is amazing. The food was very good and the serving also. In my opinion it is the best in Positano. I would definitely go to Buca di Bacco again.

I thought this was a bit over-priced for the actual meal we got. Although it was a huge serving, I think spending about $150 for a plate of fettuccine, eggplant parm and gnocchi was a bit too much. The chef (and his translator) were great! I just wish we had a chance to make something a little bit more high... More

Dear Customer, forgive me but I think that you should have written better that you did not got only a simple meal but that it was a 3 hours of Cooking Class in our kithchen together with our Chef and axistants (complimentary prosecco or other drinks were also available during the cooking). Thereafter you spent the rest of the evening... More

Great spot overlooking Positano beach (how bad can that be?). Food was good but neither the food, service or ambiance anywhere near as good as Chez Black.

The seafood pasta and overall experience was excellent. The wait staff was very accommodating. This is a great place for lunch or dinner in Positano.

good cocktails prior to dinner especially if you can get a couple of stools off to the side on the sidewalk self serve area. Good view and great spot for people watching.
