Seaview and an amazing aubergine parmigiana

We arrived in Positano in pouring rain and made our way down the hill towards the seafront. This restaurant looked inviting with a good menu and had views out to (an albeit very grey!) sea. It's quite compact inside, with slightly too many tables crammed in, but it's bright and airy with windows... read more

We ate here on two evenings during our stay in Positano and on both occasions we all agreed that the food was up there with the best. The second evening was our last of the holiday and we were greeted on our arrival with complimentary glasses of prosecco while we were studying the menu. Both the starters and the mains... More

I ate tons of pasta and seafood in my week in the amalfi coast, but this was the best seafood pasta I had.

We visited La Cambusa twice on our recent visit to Positano. Both evenings were superb and the food and service were first class. We were made to feel very welcome and special and we left both times feeling we had experienced a great meal and good value.

Just seen the "Rip Off" review and thought I had to place a comment. Sunday 25th Oct. Table overlooking the beach in 22c sunshine. Pretty full of locals with a smattering of tourists like us. We had a glass of Prossecco each as we studied the menu, and 2 glasses of vino with the meal - 2 pasta dishes and... More

We had a wonderful lunch here with new friends we met in Praiano. We ate a wonderful Octopus salad and a seafood salad and shared a bottle of wine. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

This is the first restaurant that we tried after arriving in Positano. We had lunch and it was very good. This restaurant is on the beach, so an outdoor seat is ideal for enjoying the weather and the people. My wife had pasta putanesca and I had pasta with fresh tomatoes. Both were well prepared....flavorful without being overly sauced. Add... More

Positano is not a reasonably priced area but we felt we had a wonderful lunch, baby squid as appetizers and spaghetti with seafood - all delicious
