Fresh pasta made to perfection. Especially with the seafood which is perfect after eating lots of meat in other parts of Italy. The service is great and the view is out of the world (view of Positano)

We had read about this restaurant in accounts of other hikers on the Path of the Gods. We therefore stopped here for lunch after hiking on the trail. I can't believe there is such fine dining in such a rural, out of the way location. We arrived hot and sweaty after hiking, but we were welcomed in the restaurant and... More

This restaurant is way up on top of the cliff in a town called Nocelle. You have to take the Montesomthing (can't remember)- Nocelle bus line for 1.30 euro a ticket. It is totally worth it. We were actually staying in Nocelle and ate here twice. Everything is homemade, fresh and delicious. Its a family owned place and the staff... More

We were pretty early, 11:30am, and seemed to interrupt a family meal but they were very accommodating. We just had a light lunch and the food was great!

Simple food prepared beautifully. They play to their strengths - locally sourced ingredients and lovely wine. I cannot recommend this place more highly.

Family owned and passed down through the generations this is an excellent place. crisp white linen and well decorated throughout - this is a really good local restaurant .... More

We stopped by Santa Croce after the walk of the gods. It was lunchtime and the views were stunning. The Rabbit Ragu was delish! Best pasta dish I tasted on the Amlfi! Highly recommend, I would say the evening views are out of this world.

Wow! This was such a little hidden gem - in Nocelle though, not mainland Positano, so the ranking of this restaurant is misleading (20 out of 70 positano restaurants). We stumbled upon this restaurant having needed to refuel before continuing on to the walk of the gods. The food was amazing! Fresh and tasty with the pasta cooked perfectly al... More
