Early morning?

Just grab a drlicious cornetto and a coffee at the bar, or if you can help it a gelatto. The fresh squeezed orange or lemon juice are a must expremuta

You have to go to this restaurant if only to experience the service from Paolo. Fresh fish deboned expertly and a simple salad dressed correctly at table. Beautiful wine and quite frankly the most amazing desert we have ever had anywhere. Chocolate surprise !!! And what a surprise.

I had the most delicious ravioli with fresh bufala mozzarella, tomato sauce and basil for lunch here. It is however very high priced. If you have the money to burn it's a lovely place to eat. It has the most amazing views as well and is right near all the action on the beach.

Beautifully located on the beach front this sweet restaurant. The food was lovely we enjoyed every month full, it was a little pricey but worth it for a special occasion. The service was exceptional, we will definitely return before we leave Positano.

Our hotel (Villa Rosa - also wonderful!) booked a table for us on the one evening in Positano that we hadn't already planned another meal. We were delighted with the recommendation and the restaurant far exceeded our expectations! Service was attentive and warm throughout our evening and that was only improved upon by the wonderful food we had - perfectly... More

Loved the 7 course tasting menu. Best meal in Positano. Staff were fantastic and went out of their way to please you. When we told them we were staying in the sister hotel they found out our name and every member of staff used it even to down to the receptionist of the hotel as we left. I couldn't fault... More

We visited here our first night in Positano and had absolutely marvelous service. Our driver (who grew up in Positano) recommended their pizza on our way in from Naples, and it did not disappoint! Crispy, light and chewy at the same time with a smattering of charted bits. Perfetto! Their gelato was divine. In particular, The rum raisin and pistachio.... More

We ate in the downstairs bar and had such a fun time. The staff was incredibly welcoming and the pizza delicious. They encouraged my daughters to watch the pizza making from close up and made excellent recommendations about how much food to order. Low key, casual and perfect. Great ice cream to top off the meal.

Vellario was a fantastic waiter, the food was perfect, every bite, and the beach and people watching views are nice as well. What a perfect setting for a restaurant. Here's a tip- the Coso also has a fancy rooftop dining experience by the pool. Idk if it's every nite and there are only a few tables but it's very romantic..
