Best spaghetti and meatballs (and tiramisu) in the universe!

If you are planning to spend time in Positano, please be sure to have a meal here! This was the best food that we ate during our 10-day trip to Italy. We ended up eating here twice - both times excellent food and service. The owner and serving staff were very friendly. We highly recommend... read more

…yes... including Italy. A small restaurant with a limited but perfect menu. Friendly attentive service. Near a beautiful church that has wonderful concerts. A quite spot near the beach area.

Charming owner who provided stellar recommendations. We were a bit hesitant to go, assuming that the central location would mean subpar food, but that wasn’t the case... great dining and convenient!

Many thanks to the owner who gave us warm and personal service, with very good food. Particularly liked the rolled stuffed beef plate.

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.
