Enjoyed every month full

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..

We thought we would try out the terrace restaurant of this hotel and escape from the rain - walking in it looked good freshly refurbished, great open kitchen, lovely view of the beach a menu that read well and a lovely wine list. We could not have been more wrong. My partner chose the salt cod and I had the... More

Tonight is the first night we arrived in Positano, so we tried this restaurant & we were delighted! We both had the grilled fish & the steamed vegetables and the meal was delicious! Emanuelle was our waiter and he was awesome! He greeted us with a smile and took great care of us while we were dining. I felt that... More

We ate at this restaurant on our first night in positano. We stayed at the hotel and thought it would be an easy option. After waiting about 40 mins for our first course of pasta's the spaghetti had a good flavour but was luke warm at best. We were so hungry we ate it. The ravioli was inedible. My first... More
