Awesome location, very good menù and great meals. Price is honest being in Positano near the beach. I have been there with my girlfriend and we loved it, so romantic! Would be silly not to eat fish and even the most plane dish is very well presented and well cocked with fresh tasty ingredients.

An afternoon spent with new friends on the deck looking out at the lively Positano foreshore. Had an amazing plate of traditional zucchini pasta with several glasses of wine. Staff were wonderful and we were last to leave . Would highly recommend . Good value for money right at the steps of Positano

You can eat very well prepared food, looking at the ocean and the beautiful Positano, in a quiet and comfortable restaurant. The staff is professional and prices are regular among good restaurants.

This restaurant is in a great location with very friendly and informative staff. I recall the menu having so many dishes that it was hard to choose. I can highly recommend the Ravioli in Sage.

We came here the first day we arrived in Positano for lunch and it ended up bring the most expensive and worst meal we had. The views are nice and so was the staff but the food was really lacking. We went to another place nearby that i have also reviewed and it was amazing compared to this for less... More

We had wonderful, fresh seafood prepared to perfection in this lovely restaurant with a beautiful view looking out over the beach in Positano. The fish was delicious: I had sea bass and my husband had a mixed grill. The fish couldn't have been fresher, and the simple preparation showed it off to its best advantage. The relaxing, open-air restaurant was... More

This restaurant is located right at the beach in Positano. In spite of that it is a little less expensive than the other ones around or below it. The food is excellent. Everyone in our group enjoyed what they have ordered. The service is excellent and you can see that this is a family operated business. Definitely a very good... More

The place is close to the beach, not very fancy but prices are pretty steep. We had pasta dishes and it really was not something I could have not cooked myself. Ravioli were good, pasta was just all right. Service is very basic to say the least, not too welcoming (very unusual for the South of Italy).

We were in Positano one lunchtime and decided that we wanted to eat at a restaurant overlooking the sea. I'm very pleased to report that we chose La Cambusa. We had a table in the main dining area, which overlooks the main beach and the harbour. It's a delightful place, with chairs painted in pastel shades. We all had different... More

This lovely restaurant was located right next to our hotel. I can't say enough about it. The fettuccini with olives and capers was the best pasta dish I ever had. The grilled fish with lemon and capers left me speechless! Went back the next night too. Ask for Gianni!
