Nice experience

If you are on your way to The Pathway of the Gods, this is a great place to have lunch first. Great view, good food, very good service, nice bathroom, everything you need before a hike. Not cheap but worth the price.

Incredible view overlooking the ocean, this restaurant, with its limited menu offerings, was a disappointment. I ordered the stuffed calamari which was akin to eating cheese stuffed rubber. My partner’s tuna was only so so. While my mixed salad was ordinary my partner’s mixed, grilled veggies were very good. A nice wine list and reasonably priced. We split a piece... More

Arrived via the exciting and exhilarating bus from Positano. Our room wasn't quite ready but no problem as we were directed towards the nearby Santa Croce. Very plain interior but you barely notice as the view is spectacular. Friendly staff with a great sense of humour. Had a delicious lunch of local vegetables and sea food. Fabulous wine list and...

We tried to go yesterday, but when we arrived and there was only one couple in the entire restaurant, along with five front tables, they would not allow us to sit it any of them without a reservation. We could sit in the other table, but not the front with views. So, we booked our table for tonight. We got... More

All of our food was delicious from the baked mozzarella to the sea food pasta. We followed our meals with coffee and lemoncello and will penalty be back. So friendly and amazing views.

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 stunningly beautiful views of the bay of Positano and...

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
