We own a condo in Positano so we visit a lot and eat out a lot when we are there. Il Capitano is one of the restaurants we try not to miss every time we travel there. The quality if the food is very good, if somewhat limited in choice. But it is up the highest standards in Positano so... More

We ate here our first night is Positano after not being able to get an outside table at Da Vincenzo. We were able to get a table for two at the edge of the outdoor patio with a gorgeous panorama view of the city. We were able to watch the sunset and then the stars sparkle on the sea as... More

We were walking through the main street in Positano and found this place by chance, and we could not resist trying it. We asked for a table right on the edge of the terrace, where the view is the best, simply breathtaking. The food was very good and the service was attentive. There are not too many tables so a...

Our innkeeper at the Casa Teresa recommended this restaurant for a special dinner on our last night in Positano and even called and setup the reservations. They reserved our table right on the railing in the corner of the patio. What a great view of the sea and the town below we had from there. We wish we had come... More

This restaurant combines a great view with good food at a reasonable price. We recently ate there for the second time and the only negative was a longer than acceptable wait for the main course probably due to a large party seated next to us. The food however was terrific and so was their wine recommendation. The price was reasonable... More

It didn't disappoint! It is a short walk up the hill out of the main street, quite easy to find. We called in for a late lunch having dropped our bags at our hotel. The view is stunning and the food is lovely. We had the salt and pepper prawns to share, followed by a pizza each. We leisurely watched... More
