PLEASANT SURPRISE !!

This was a most pleasant surprise. We wanted a view of the beach and thought how good could the food be right on the beach. Had low expectations but the Seafood Risotto proved to be absolutely excellent and from the looks of other dishes going by us, lots of good choices. Reasonably priced and... read more

The food and service were fantastic! I had the linguini and seafood in a white wine sauce. It was out of this world! I would go back!

This place is located right on the main beach, with a great view. Staff and waiter were very friendly and welcoming. My wife and I came here because we were looking for great seafood and this was recommended. We started off with fried calamari which was good. For our entree we shared red snapper which was the special of the... More

The hostess, Roberta, at La Cambusa made our dinner there delightful. She brought us prosecco on the house and then a plate each of bruschetta. We talked together for a long time and found out she was a language student like my wife. Not only was she pretty but also intelligent. At the end of a beautiful meal she brought... More

professional local cuisine, typical athmosphere from Positano. Excellent food. Maybe the service is not too fast, but this certifies the quality of food

We were on a day trip to Positano out of Capri. After doing a little shopping we made our way down to the beach area and spotted La Cambusa. It was about 2:00 PM and the restaurant was just starting empty out. Fortunate for us since a table with a great view opened up. Service was prompt and friendly. I... More

The Spaghetti and Clams is a must - clams are crazy fresh and delicious. I had the grilled anchovies which were buttery and delicious! Service is very nice and sets the pace for the meal.

Of the places down on the beach at Positano this one stood out for having good seafood at reasonable prices. Not upscale but not pricey. We recommend it

Recommended as the place on that main strip that isn't quite the tourist trap. It wasn't too bad. Service was pretty terrible, but the pasta with muscles was delicious and it wasn't just a token one or 2 muscles in there, but a really good amount. Grilled calamari was good too. Not too expensive. Half bottle of local wine great... More
