We had a wonderful lunch here, sitting outside under a large umbrella and received excellent food and service. The owner suggested things for us to try and allowed us to sample wines before deciding which to order. Great food and wonderful atmosphere.

You are welcomed by the owner who gives tips to eat his specials of the day. Easy going and perfect, a wonderful blend! His choice of WINES are top! The square where the tables are set is quiet and shadowy. A beautiful dattura blooming in one corner! The staff is efficient and quick. Soft atmosphere and excellency with fish vegetables... More

We met another couple for a birthday lunch at this well-reviewed family-run restaurant and we were not disappointed. The owner let us sample wine, served excellent food with friendly professionalism and served home-made Hot chocolate pudding which I think should be served in Heaven! we were there for 2 hours and felt attended but not hassled, the sign of the...

Great little find on the corner just up the cobblestone walk from Spiaggia Grande Beach. Cozy atmosphere with small bar. Friendly service with reasonable prices. House red and white were both very good. Split the Orecchiette with broccoli and sausage -- it arrived piping hot and was delicious. Would definitely go back.

We were exhausted after a long day of touring, so decided to stick close to our hotel for an easy, inexpensive dinner. We were so glad we did because we were pleasantly surprised at the food here. There was a torrential rain storm outside, but we were cozy and seated at one of the four little tables inside. My husband... More

Nicodemo is great. He knows his wine and always has a smile for you. The chef here is fabulou. The food goes beyond expectations. For a lovely evening with friends or a loved one, i would recommend Wine-dark House 1000%!

We came across this restaurant while walking through the streets of Positano. I asked if they did a chicken salad as I am gluten free and even though it was not on the menu the waiter said they could. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and said it was the best he had ever eaten. We went back a... More

This was a lovely find in Positano. If you like small restaurants frequented by locals rather than just tourists then this is for you. We loved this place tucked away at the bottom of the cathedral steps, and so nice compared to many restaurants in Positano which are attached to hotels. Small menu, but lovely fresh food, the fish pasta,... More
