Nico, the owner, made our evening with a very special meal in mid-November when most other restaurants are closed. Warm enough to sit outside in the lovely courtyard, which was quite romantic. The vegetable soup was outstanding and the eggplant - both sandwich and entree - were the best meal we had in Italy. Nico's recommended wine, Falerno del Massico,... More

We went here on our last night and wished we had visited sooner. I'd recommend it over the bright lights on the beach front every time. The food is excellent value for money and really good Italian fare and the owner is really friendly (especially if you like rugby!) When we return to Positano, we certainly won't be waiting until...

Love this place, loved the food, and loved Nicco. Try Nicco's uncle's recipe for (I can't remember the exact name on menu...something like Cesare fettucini). It's great....carpaccio with onions and wine and parmesan.

My husband and I went for lunch to this quaint spot, most of the seating is outside and away from the bustle, yet very close to the beach and church. The owner was amazing and working his butt off. I think we had the best spaghetti and meatballs ever at this restaurant. We also ordered the eggplant parmesan which was... More

This was a seriously great find! It was my absolute favourite dining experience in Positano. This place is sort of a hidden gem. I say "sort of" because it's actually located in what is a busy tourist area through the day (shops all around and not far from the tourist office) but it's a quiet area at night. Most tourists...

This little restaurant is tucked away in a back street near the Tourist Office. Friendly staff. We had a lovely lunch. Seems to be popular with Italians, Good selections of wine. Home made deserts. This place is well worth a visit and not too expensive. Well worth a visit.

We had read reviews of this place prior to our stay in Positano, so it was on our 'radar'.. we found it easily on our first evening. It's on the little street that runs behind Chez Black and Tre Sorelle on the beachfront. So - no sea views here but it has such a pretty, fairy-light lit outdoor area. We... More

We had lunch here on a whim, as we happen to be nearby. I had a delicious eggplant parm and some wonderful wine with great service. It was a lovely lunch with great service. They even had wifi for us to use!
