Delivery of Party Food

We ordered a delivery of Lasagna and a Celebration Chocolate Mousse cake for a family party of 18. It was a bit of an exasperating experience confirming the order as they were very slow in responding to emails, but I did finally get confirmation just before I left for Italy. The Lasagna needed a... read more

This restaurant serves excellent food! In fact, the BEST we had during our week stay in the area. Parking on the main road.

I recommend La Taverna if you are enjoying an extended stay in Positano and don't need to see the beautiful sea view for yet another meal, and want some more choices beyond the delicious Italian food from the area. There is no view aside from the road outside, but the inside is painted a welcoming sunshine yellow and cooly air-conditioned.... More

We had lunch on a recommendation that the food was excellent, Service was pretty good but and would have been better if our Italian was better. Would come back again. Waiter made a seafood platter and recommended a couple of pasta dishes. The Ravioli with sausage was great!

I would agreed with the revie from Tarek_Aggad, the food here is fantastic, however, once the tables fill up the service starts to slip. But I would rather have delicious, fresh and local food and OK service than having it the other way around! We ate here one night on a recommendation from a resident in Laurito, and it is... More

This place has really good food , from the pizzas to the pastas and great home made antipasti . It's tough to describe the service , really nice welcoming people but a bit mismanaged. Overall I would recommend this place for the food and authentic ambiance . Despite the fact that they could improve service , I left happy.

We started by getting takeaway pizzas as they were recommended. Fantastic pizzas and cheap.It was a strange because the restaurant looked quite fancy yet it did takeaway pizzas. So we decided to dine in on our last evening. It was delicious, with a good variety of pasta, fish and meat dishes, even with something to please our 12 and 13... More

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
