We ate here on recommendation from a local and a tourist. We enjoyed it so much we returned for a second dinner. Firstly you can take a bus from positano to Nocelle(runs every hour) for only Euro 1.60 each way. The village is high up overlooking Positano. On our first visit ,somebody was waiting for us at the bus stop... More

This is a restaurant you should avoid. The food is not of high quality to say the least and the service is poor. They prices our outrageous for what you get. No value for money.

Reasonable food, but stunning view from here, especially at sunset. Very reasonable prices. 1 hour to walk from downtown Positano up 1700 steps.

If you can find your way to Nocelle, high above Positano....don't miss Santa Croce Ristorante for the best grilled Sea Bass ever. Served "whole fish" style, this was incredibly fresh, simply grilled with Sage and some herbs. Order with family style grilled fresh vegetables, mint/vinegar sauteed zucchini and a Caprese salad to share for under US$35 per person. The restaurant... More

We ended up eating here 2 times out of 4 during our trip to Positano. We found the service exceptional, views amazing and the food the best we had in Positano. The family run restaurant serves quality, authentic Italian food. Whilst the menu doesn't offer a lot of choice what you order won't be dissapointing. We especially liked the zucchini... More
