Amazing view of the Amalfi Coast high above Positano

Trattoria Santa Croce is in the Nocelle section of Positano. Definitely worth the bus trip to get up there, perched overlooking the town. You get an excellent version of the local food - I recommend fish dishes preferably washed down with a Falanghina or a Fieno d'Avellino- in a room with... read more

Very nice church on the slope of Positano, near the little beach. You must down 80 steps to go there.

The famous Walk of the Gods that starts in Praiano and ends here in Nocelle, has to be capped with lunch at this lovely Eater. They do a fabulous rabbit dish and jumbo-sized baked potato chips, from pratties grown in their own garden - delicious. This precious little hilltop village is a favourite of ours. Just one bar, one deli... More

Our hotel in Positano recommended dining here for lunch. The lunch followed a small excursion from Nocelle along the Path of the Gods hike. We hadn't time for the full hike but rather walked in for 30 minutes, came back, and had a nice lunch at Santa Croce. As we looked around, it appeared all the diners were hikers who... More

We had lunch here after the Birds of Prey show. We ordered the grilled veggie antipasto - excellent - and split a pasta dish. That was enough. Service was attentive, and atmosphere was happy. highly recommend.

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.
