Having tried all the other "best" restaurants in Positano, if I chose to descibe any restaurant as the best, this is it. We have been here six times over a five year period I can confirm a consistent performance. The restaurant is run by the family and as other reviewers attest the food and service are as good as it...

Donna Rosa was recommended to us by friends who had previously dined there a few years ago. It was there favorite restaurant on the Amalfi Coast. I am glad we took up their recommendation. It was the best meal we have had on our Italy trip. Every meal is made fresh by Momma Rosa or her daughter Erica. The meals... More

Gorgeous food, fresh and friendly staff. Generous volume of wine, really a plus in my books. Go for the black & white!

I really enjoyed this restaurant, but feel it could have been better. It was rated very high, and apparently is Jamie Oliver's fave hangout in Italy, but I found it to be above average quality- just not stellar. Service was wonderful, and it was nice to see the goings on in the kitchen. Unfortunately the patio is basically right off... More

I first came here about a decade ago and have returned many times since. It's a beautiful drive and very pretty view looking down over Positano. I still rate the service and hospitality very high but I personally feel the food hasn't necessarily gotten worse it's just that so many other Establishments are better and maybe Donna Rosa hasn't kept...

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
