Sooo good

We came based on a recommendation from a friend. Family owned and run... everyone is so nice. We had the scallops appetizer with the lavender ....the best!!! They take pride in their food and you can tell by their product. We stayed in the town and had to take taxi to get there, but then found... read more

A friend recommended we try this small family owned and operated restaurant. No panoramic views but the food was enough to make it the best so far of 22 restaurants (several were Michelin star) of our trip. Try scallops with lemon and lavendar, the back and white pasta and the pannacotta! Delicious.

Ate lunch outside. Service was good. Menu items: Sea bass was very tastefully seasoned and garnished. Fish was very fresh. Black and white seafood dish was also great. Desserts were amazing. Worth every cent. I want to move there!

We read about this little restaurant in the Lonely Planet reviews, we booked through the hotel who very kindly made a reservation for us at 1.30 for lunch. I am not saying the place is easy to find but with a good sat Nav you should manage it. When we arrived we parked the car in a little car park... More

This was our favorite dinner of our trip to Positano. We had the scallop appetizer, porcini mushroom risotto, spinach and ricotta ravioli, chicken Marsala, and the pork braciole. We finished with panna cotta and lava cake. What a fantastic meal! My only criticism is that the wines were pretty expensive compared to everywhere else. No house red or white so... More

A little pricey, but worth it. No prices on the menu. For 1 antipasta starter & 2 pasta dishes (no fish) and no alcohol, only Coke Zero + 1 bottled water = 90 Euros. Ravioli (3) with Spinach was very fresh and melted in my mouth. Friendly service & a family operated restaurant. Grandma & daughter were in kitchen cooking... More

My wife and I are foodies. We've had the vastly expensive meals all over the world, and our fun is now looking for the restaurants worthy of a Michelin Star before they achieve one (and thus finding that gem before it gets too crowded and impossible to book). Here's why if you only had one meal to eat in Positano,... More

On the end of a hiking route: "il sentiere degli dei" we found this higher classed restaurant in a little village. Very quiet ambience. Quite high priced but after enjoyed the food every euro worth!

Clearly the best meal on our Italian holiday. They welcomed us warmly, even in our hiking gear, and served great minestrone soup, lasagne and fish, with local wine. And the pannacotta with the tiny wild strawberries was out of this world!

After a long walk in Positano and in order to avoid the crowded restaurants and tourist traps we decided to drive 10 minutes to have lunch at Donna Rosa. Impeccable table linens and first class service in this small restaurant in montepertuso. Amazing and creative "black and white" : short tagliatelle bicolore with generous frutti di mare. Yummy raviolis with... More
