Great lunch after hiking the Path of Gods

Romantic Italian venue with a beautiful view of Positano and the coast. Was perfect after the hike from Praiano, great fresh seafood and lamb chops with good value for money.

We hiked up to Nocelle from Positano and had planned a lunch but nothing special, but our meal at Santa Croce turned out to be one of the best meals of our week in Italy! We certainly weren't dressed for fine dining having hiked up, but it didn't matter, in fact most of the diners were in walking gear /... More

My husband and I had been hiking all day, and santa croce was the perfect "re-fuel." seriously, we were dead tired, then we ordered gorgeous aperitifs and ice cold prosecco,... and we were in heaven. The view- priceless. Nocelle- amazing! Thank you for an amazing experience of real Italy!

On the advice of Tom & Helen from Liverpool we caught the internal bus to Nocelle from Positano. It was well worth the visit the food was great Tuna Steak & Seafood Pasta, with a window seat and without a reservation. What a view.

This fabulous restaurant at the top of Positano in the little town of Nocelle, is one of the best experience you will ever have. Run by a local family, Anthony and Paolo out front, sisters, Mom, and other family in the kitchen. Everything on the menu is great, seafood to pasta, to beef. The service is extraordinary and the view... More

The food here is fantastic. We ate here every night during our stay in Positano, because it was so close to our B&B and because the food was so good and fresh. Our favorite was the octopus with tomato sauce, but nearly everything we had was great. Honestly, this is one of our favorite restaurants in all of Italy. We... More

Decided to go in for a quick drink, but ended up ordering a meal and staying for 3 hours. Superb home cooking, breathtaking views and the staff were fantastic, helpful and friendly. On of the most memorable days of our holiday. Worth the drive up to Nocelle.

The menu changes often and it is not very wast, that maybe the reason for the delicious, home cooking which lots... More
