This is my beef with tripadvisor...either there is an 'average' rating or 'very good' rating -- just possible to say 'good'. I would rate this place a 'good'. Food is good, service is very good, but it falls short on value for money.

The restaurant is just next to Casa Curacao B&B, and was recommended by the B&B owner. We had delicious food there, served in pleasant atmosphere. This is a family restaurant. The chef is the mother, and she prepares wonderful dishes. The place is quiet, clean and nicely decorated. Great value and wonderful dining experience.

Excellent food in an exquisite setting. Try to get there early enough to enjoy the view overlooking Positano and the coast. Open early afternoon to 3 pm and then 7:30 to 10 pm. Great decor, great staff, great food. People even drive up here (Nocelle) to eat, and that is at least 20 minutes of a very sinuous route. The... More

We decided to go up to Nocelle for some hiking on the path of the gods. After a couple hours round trip we came back to Santa Croce for some food. Our timing was perfect as one of the tables right at the window had just opened up. The view was amazing. Perched on the edge of the mountain overlooking... More

What a surprise when we found this amazing restaurant in Nocelle! The food was well presented, service was excellent and of course the wine was too.

The other reviews are not wrong; this is excellent. We ate there 3 times during our stay. Menu is not large, but everything is good. Ask about off-menu octopus and other specials. Excellent wine selection; knowledgeable servers. Our major advice to others concerns logistics: The restaurant is a short walk from the Nocelle parking lot. Take the (70) steps DOWN... More

A bright blue skied sunny day greeted us for our walk along The Pathway of the Gods,starting at Bomerano all along to Nocelle and down down down all those steps to positiono. The hike had magnificent views along the Amalfi coast and away to Capri. By lunchtime we reached Nocelle and stepped down into Santa Croce Restaurant where we sat... More

We ate here twice and found the food and service to be very good. They had specials on both nights and a comprehensive wine list, although I did not like the house red. Quite up market but still reasonably priced
