A delightful experience

This slightly formal, yet friendly restaurant, serves excellent food. Roses on the table, lovely napery, skilled waiters, good wine. We visited twice during our May holiday. Certainly will go again!! Not too expensive for such good food and service.

Absolutely recommended for the fresh fish. Tuna tartare with anchovy/pesto paste and the catch of the day with potatoes and tomatoes were to die for. Strawberry tiramisu was also delicious - not overdone like most tiramisu. Best meal in the area.

I believe this is the best restaurant in Positano. I have been several times over the years and have always had excellent food. The pizza alone is probably the best I've eaten, but do try other items on the menu, you will not be disappointed.

After traveling straight for 22 hours, the lovely woman who greeted us at our villa suggested La Taverna del Leone for dinner. She said it was a very good restaurant and quite close to the villa (about 300 meters away). However, because it was pretty much pitch black outside, and the drivers drive pretty crazy on the very narrow roads... More

We stopped here for a late lunch after visiting Positano based on recommendation from our hotel. The dining area is quite attractive. The restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived and although we were greeted and seated promptly, the server was slow to take our order. The service thereafter was fine. Our meals were well-prepared and nicely presented.

Car service from our B&B directly to the restaurant. Very attentive staff, excellent wine list. Known for some of the best pizzas in Positano. Full dinner menu as well. Well worth a visit!

It's well worth the short trip from the centre of town to this low-key, friendly restaurant that delivers high quality food.

Please try the Traditional Spaghetti Carbonara and the Calamari it was excellent. We had a dark haired waiter who couldn't do enough to help us. The appetisers that are compliments of... More

My husband and I just didn't love this restaurant. The service and ambiance is nice, but other than that the food was mediocre and quite forgettable. The appetizers, pasta dish and pizza were all equally bland. We've had nothing but excellent food during our stay in Positano, but this just wasn't one of them.
