We stayed in Positano for 3 days and we ate here twice in that time. The first time for dinner when we ordered much more than we could manage to eat and so we back back the next day for lunch to try again! The owners are so warm and welcoming, when they recognised us from the day before they... More

I really, really wanted to like this restaurant. We walked by it several times at the beginning of our stay, and apart from its lovely location, the staff working the terrace were always very friendly. We finally decided to make a reservation after returning to our hotel and reading many online reviews that raved about the food. We were hoping... More

A nice place, great seafront view, friendly and excellent service but pity the average food. Even the whole lobster pasta didn't manage to lift the flavor of the dish.

My advise is to avoid the most popular places down the beach... More

We went on a day trip to Positano and found La Cambusa not far from the ferry drop off point. It overlooks the beach but it's not a restaurant which relies on its location to make it memorable. We shared a fried selection of aubergine, mozzarella & rice balls to start with which were just right for 2. For main... More

The food was fantastic; I would particularly recommend the deep-fried 'goodies' starter with breaded mozzarella, risotto balls and all sorts of other seafood. Our pasta dishes and salads were also delicious, as were the wild strawberries we had for dessert. Slightly more expensive than other places we saw in Positano, but keep in mind that you are also paying for... More

My husband and I ate here during our honeymoon in Italy. We'd eaten at a pretty expensive restaurant the night before, but the food here was better! We sat upstairs and the atmosphere was fantastic. The waiter was pretty friendly and was singing to himself as he walked around the restaurant, which was entertaining in itself! We had marinated anchovies... More
