Nice setting by the port with great food. The eggplant croquettes were tasty and not greasy. The side of spinach with olive oil and garlic went well with the chicken parmagiana. Ask for extra sauce. The bouillabaisse was outstanding and loaded with shellfish. fish and a giant octopus. A shot of lemoncello finished the meal.

On a recent trip to Positano Italy, I had a chance to eat at this restaurant and I liked it so much I even took their cooking class as well. I had lunch there first and when I found out they had cooking classes I signed up with no reservations. The food is fresh and mouth watering, the view just... More

We had a lot of really great meals during our honeymoon in Italy, so unfortunately, this place had stiff competition. I ordered pasta with pesto and my husband ordered lamb (I think). We were both underwhelmed. Our server was very good, and we sat outside so we had a beautiful view, but for the money, I wish we would've tried... More

We stayed at the Buca Di Bacco Hotel for 3 days and couldn't be happier. We ate at all three of the dining options. Only this restaurant disappointed us. The food and service in Positano sets a very high standard and this place didn't measure up. The food was well prepared and tasty but the service was the problem. The... More

Not too many restaurants were open i, but this was a good choice on a warmish late November evening. It was good food, good service, and a spectacular sunset view. Good stop!

We selected this restaurant; first it was inside our hotel, second because of the great reviews. Unfortunately they didnot deserve these great reviews. However it was an above average restaurant compared to others in this tiny cute village. We visited the restaurant twice. First time was our second night. Food was so so. Service was good and the staff were... More

While we did not eat at the restaurant, we ate gelato here. I had chocolate (creamy and rich) and my husband had lemon (very fresh and light). It is located down the main staircase to the right just opposite of the restaurant. While the shop is small and there is not very any place to eat inside, it is just... More

Great family restaurant on the beach--location and ambiance can't be beat. This restaurant was recommended to me from a local in Sorrento. Fresh and delicious food. I had the calamari and carbonara, which I would order again in a heartbeat. I went in the off season (end of October), and was still very busy, so if you're looking for a... More
