Great dinner, great view!

We were in Positano for three days in late June. One day we took the bus to the top of Positano and passed by Il Capitano on our walk back down. It was such a beautiful location we had to go back for dinner. We weren't disappointed. The food was great and we struck up a conversation with fellow... read more

I couldn't believe how bad the pizza in this restaurant was. By far the worst I've had in the Amalfi Coast! The location and view of this restaurant are outstanding, probably the main reason I decided to sit there and I indeed got my share of stunning photos. It is obviously pricey. Didn't try the pasta or any other dish... More

Firstly, this restaurant has the best view of any restaurant we ate in and based on that alone, we wanted to come back. However, it was the food that made this our number one choice, and the delightful friendly staff. Including two incredibly handsome waiters who we nicknamed 'Il Divo waiters' for their slick hair and gorgeous faces. We ate... More

An amazing setting overlooking Positano. The food was good but the service a little haphazard. This was our first dinner after arriving in Positano so we were still finding our feet as to what and where to eat. I had tuna as a main course which was delicious and very fresh but just came as five lumps of seared, coated... More

This place really is all about the view. It has an incredible location and is great just for a drink. Had pasta first which was okay, clams were quite gritty. Unfortunately my steak for a main was truly awful. Half completely rare half really chewy and over done. It was the worst meal I had in Italy. However the worst... More

Another Positano restaurant with great views. The pasta with zucchini was excellent. The fish was served with potatoes in a tomato sauce and I wasn't impressed.

This restaurant is all about the view. It is worth going to for that alone. We were walking by and really only wanted a drink but were told you had to order food to sit where we wanted to sit. We decided to have an early lunch and it was a good decision. I had a margarita pizza and mixed... More
