I was given a discount card by my hotel for this resturant and after having travelled around all day this seemed to be a great way to not have to make a decision of 'where will I go now?' I walked around five minutes from my hotel and arrived at this restuarant, a little disappointed at the fact that it... More

I think İt is a family run business, they all enjoy working there, they are helpful, happy and joyful. The food is absolutely delicious!

This is THE BEST restaurant in Positano, delicious pizza and pasta, traditional Italian food not like the more commercial restaurants, personal service, made to feel very welcome, delicious oven roasted 'round' potatoes :) We visited the restaraunt twice in our 9 day stay, the reason we did not visit more was because we only found it on our 6th day!!!...

My third year in Positano and again - multiple visits to this restaurant. Why - when there is no view in a town renowned for its views? Simply because the food is perfect and the family who own and operate are like the Italian family you wish you had. The Spaghetti Puttanesca is sublime - and I've tried to replicate... More

Again there is nothing to describe the excellent food we had at Saraceno d'Oro. The eggplant with tomatoes was a great way to start the meal, the flavors exceptional. The salad was crisp and the pIzza great, done to perfection. The beer was cold and the lemoncello delicious as usual. And of course the staff were great. We hope to... More

We had been here before last Oct and this night did not disappoint. Our waiter Guisseppe was evrything a waiter should be. The service was incredible and the food was fantastic. Fresh seafood, pastas, veal were "to... More

We first stopped here because it was close to where we were staying and we wanted to take out pizza. We were cheerfully greeted and sat down at table given a glass of wine while we waited for our pizza and had some fun with the servers. The pizza was fabulous reasonably priced and the staff was so much fun... More

The villa that we were staying at in Praiano had mentioned that their family had a restaurant in Positano if we were interested so we thought we'd try it out. From the moment that you arrive at the front door you're treated like part of the family. The food was incredible, the staff (mostly family), from the host Pepe to... More
