Stay away from this place. We arrived at 9pm for two nights only to be turned away and told "The kitchen is cleaning up, we are closed & can not serve you" The 2 brothers who manage the place Antonio & Paulo were completely rude and unwilling to budge. After we smiled and asked the kitchen to please make something... More

What a good way to finish a walk along Il Sentiero degli Dei. The views up there are spectacular, and the food was authentic, balanced and tasty. Recommended.

The perfect place for a special lunch up high on a hill with breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast. We booked well in advance and scored a perfect table at the window. The food was fabulous and served by caring and attentive waiters. Bravo. Highly recommend eating here.

Staying at a local B&B this restaurant was the only one in town. We ate there both nights and were so glad we had the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful, fresh food, the friendly and helpful waiters and the views of Positano at night. We appreciated the free bruschetta with tomato each night. The food was delicious particularly the cheese... More

Me and my friends had lunch in this restaurant after walking the Paths of Gods. Our table was just next to the window from where we enjoyed the most amazing views of Positano. We had home made pasta and risotto - both were very delicious! The waiter was very kind, attentive and spoke good English.

We ate here 4 times whilst staying in Nocelle- this restaurant must have one of the best views in the world along the Amalfi Coast and down to Positano. The food was extremely good too - much better than the restaurants in Positano with delicious pasta, risotto , fish etc - would recommend to anyone visiting the area!

Had a wonderful time at santa croce. Food was excellent and the service was very good as well nothing left wanting. We asked for a recommendation on the wine and was told they have no bad wines and he was right.

A great lunch to eat after the path of the gods. My husband had the pasta and I tried the eggplant Parmesan and they were simply delicious especially with the bottle of vino.
