Went two the place on reccommendation from our hotel and were not disappointed. Excellent italian cuisine, catering for locals and tourists alike. Prompt and attentive service, reasonable prices. The local wine only added to the experience. Only problem is afterwards driving back to the hotel on the winding road!

Ate here on our last even such a lovely family run resturant. No request was too much for them, we asked the waiter for their recommendations and none of the options disappointed even the local wine was delicious. I had the lamb chops, I just couldn't eat slow enough to savour the moment Even provide a free chauffer shuttle from... More

Wonderful food, wait service excellent. There had to have been 30 or more pizza take out customers (with multiple pizzas) that came in during our 2 hour excellent dinner. A long time family owned business, this place is a gem.

We happened upon the restaurant by accident and what a pleasant surprise. Friendly efficient wait staff who were very accommodating, great atmosphere with many locals dropping in for takeaways, a wonderful full view of the kitchen in action. So good we went back the next day. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Best in all! We had a late lunch and got so spoiled in this unique restaurant! The fish was speechless! For dessert, I was able to taste the best cannoli ever, with a delicious homemade liquore al mirtillo that I managed to buy a glass to bring home... Perfection in details. It's worth pointing out that we were treated by... More

Food was very good, atmosphere was tasteful but not pretentious, staff was pleasant and attentive, and prices were reasonable. Only thing is La Taverna is really only accessible by car for Positano but it is well worth the effort.

After 2 1/2 weeks finally a good italian meal! Our driver said this is his favourite and we agree. The restaurant also has a free pick up service to and from the restaurant. Even if the restaurant driver is a bit grumpy. The carpaccio entree was the most delicious course we had in Italy. Everything looked good. Pizzas looked popular... More

Finally a recommendation that paid off :) This restaurant offers excellent pizza, one of the best we had so far in Italy. BTW the mushroom were from a can but once I took them off the taste of the pizza was wonderful. My husband ordered pasta pomodoro as he was not to hungry and the sauce was really good. Not... More
