The restaurant offered us a gratis shuttle service from our B&B When we walked inside, it's so beautifully decorated, we thought maybe we had made a mistake. It looked expensive but we were pleasantly surprised! The menu was relatively inexpensive, the artichoke appetizers came gratis and were delicious. We ordered 2 appetizers and we each ordered a main course which... More

Now you're always going to get better take-out pizza in Italy than in the UK. On holidays in Rome, Tuscany, Sicily and Puglia we've tried many pizzas in Italy both eat-in and take-out. The pizza at La Taverna del Leone really is top class ... excellent! You only need to take a look at the quality of the wood burning... More

This was our favorite restaurant in Positano. We went to this restaurant the first day of our stay and liked it so much, that we went back for a second time two days later. They have a shuttle service that will pick you up and take you to the restaurant and they will also take you home after your meal.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our host at our accommodation. The owner of the restaurant picked us up in his van and returned us at the end of the evening.(as a free service) The food was outstanding and the waiter Enzo was friendly, very professional, and accommodated any requests we had.

We decided to stop here after being directed by the doorman at the rather nice hotel on the cliff overlooking the sea. We sat outside on the terrace and had an aperitif before lunching. We were brought the menu but the waiter also told us about specials they had on that today and explained how they could be cooked. Myself... More

The food, staff and wine here were all fantastic and our meal was great value for money - €100 for 2 people (three courses each and 2 bottles of wine). The cuttle fish and fennel salad starter which was delicious and refreshing - especially after a few days of eating too much pasta and pizza!

La Taverna was recommended by a local for its fresh organic food and pizza. They also provided pick-up service, which was great since parking and driving on the coast is difficult. We enjoyed being able to watch the kitchen and view the fresh ingredients. Enzo was our server - personable, always smiling, & very helpful. Tip: start with a cocktail... More

Our favorite chef in Positano recommended Taverna Leone and what a great choice. The restaurant is on the coast road, about 9kms outside of Positano so you will need a cab or other transportation. The restaurant actually provided us with a ride back to our hotel. The tavern is very cute with an open kitchen and pizza oven. It is... More
