Great views, great food, great service!

We ate lunch and dinner here and were thoroughly impressed with both meals. The Insalata Caprese was delicious, as was the ravioli Caprese. The service was friendly and wonderful! The view is fabulous!

There are so may tourist-choked restaurants lining the road through Positano. We noticed the street-located sign at the Hotel Marincanto saying that the restaurant was open. We ventured forth with courage in and down the elevator to the hotel lobby, then onto the restaurant terrace. What a spectacular setting for a great lunch! Please don't tell anyone.

This hotel has a great location with sea views and easy walk to restaurants and shopping. They have a private but steep stairway that takes you directly to the beach so you do not have to go through shopping areas to get there. Shower is tiny and there are some things about the room that American visitors will need to... More

This was a beautiful restaurant to end our stay in Positano. The balcony was covered in jasmine and bourgainvillea as well as lemon, orange and olive trees- the perfume! The view over Positano magnificent as was the food. The chilly pea baby calamari and both the lamb and beef were amazing. The staff particularly Rafaella and Claudio were friendly -... More

As a birthday treat my partner brought me here. The setting is gorgeous. The restaurant is very well appointed and we had high hopes. My partner wanted the duck which according to the menu is served pink. Could she have it not so pink? No. We both went for the anchovies and cheese in breadcrumbs which were lovely and as... More

We only ate from the lunch menu but it was great value and provides one of the best views of the Positano coastline. Great photo ops, pleasant service, a very nice looking pool and sun loungers if you want more than just food and drink. The lunch menu is somewhat predictable but excellent quality nonetheless

We found the food to be delicious, the staff were knowledgable, nonintrusive and friendly. The location was spectacular. I particularly enjoyed the pasta dishes.

We actually stayed in this hotel and loved the food! We did not want to try the other restaurants because Al Marincanto was so good! Highly recommend it!
