Our dinner was very average, and not worth the trip out of Positano. They offer a shuttle service from town to the restaurant which is great, because if it hadn't been for our shuttle bus load of clients, there wouldn't have been other customers. There were no locals, which for me, screams....stay away. I like to eat where locals eat.

It's really in Montepertuso, but they have a shuttle service which will collect you from Positano, and drop you back. Or the frequent buses from Positano to Montepertuso and Nocelle will get you there. It has three areas - outside in the square, outside on the terrace, and inside. The latter two are fancy, and the former informal. We had... More

The restaurant is a bit off-center from Positano, but it is a little escape from the crowds! We ate well and we got the right! The place has a free shuttle reservation. Very convenient and useful. From the center of Positano can be reached by local bus

This is a family owned and loved restaurant. You can literally see the love going into the food preparation because you can see the mother and the daughter cooking in the kitchen. And the kitchen is spotless!!!!! This was our second time there and we were equally pleased with the food and the fabulous wine selection. It was truly our... More

Recommended by hotel and picked up by taxi paid by restaurant. Family owned. Mother owns sister is chef and son waiters. Ambience good since you are Miles up the mountain in a suburb of maybe 900 folks and the room off to the side is so personal and so upscale. Food is four stars and well prepared and presented. Risotto... More

We dined here to celebrate a birthday recently. It is a very small and intimate restaurant. Service is excellent. The restaurant were kind enough to provide transport from our hotel in Positano and back free of charge. The food is very good. I would recommend for a special occasion or romantic evening. Shame that it doesn't have views as then... More

The older man that works here is fabulous! His wine knowledge, and his skill at serving is more than I have seen anywhere else, ever. Food service was good too. They could not have been more attentive. We had a large group, maybe 12 of us. Not sure how everyone else enjoyed their meal, but my 22 year old daughter,... More

Donna Rosa is a wonderful (and romantic) place to eat. They are a family business through and through and it is totally worth the money. They were so incredibly friendly. We really enjoyed our dinner and would highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a special place to eat.

We loved this restaurant's friendly atmosphere and lovely, delicate food. The black and white seafood pasta and limoncello desert were highlights. We'll be back !

It was our second visit to Donna Rosa, the first one being six years ago. We remembered that the experience was better, way better. For starters, our evening got to a very slow start. After being sat down, the service ceremony has begun. We were handed the menus. One for me, with prices mentioned, and one for my girlfriend, without... More
