More amazing food in Positano

Another amazing meal in Positano. The desserts here were phenomenal. The piano added some nice ambience and we had a great view, so the whole setting was great for a romantic evening.

We couldn't have chosen a better venue to celebrate the renewal of our wedding vows. The restaurant is so romantic with beautiful views and pianist to complete the ambience. We opted for the taster menu with wines and all four of us enjoyed every course. The staff were extremely helpful throughout. The evening was perfect and one I will never... More

Attached to the hotel of the same name, Al Marincanto is elegant but not stuffy with a wonderful menu and staff. We were eating early as our time clocks were still adjusting. While we waited for the kitchen and staff to be all set, they brought us Prosecco and a snack. We also had a between course tasting compliments of... More

The view was amazing right off the bat and staff were very obliging. Beautiful setting for a meal but my fiancé and I were thrown at first by the modern style menu that was different to the standard Italian dishes we had been eating in Positano. Fancy food is not our thing but we ordered a first and second course... More

As guests staying at the hotel we ate dinner there the first night. The food was tasty and fresh and the service very attentive, like the hotel. A great way to enjoy the end of the day.

We stayed at the Hotel Marincanto for three nights and being tired, we decided to try their food since the view from the terrace was unsurpassable. The food was so good that we decided to eat two of our three dinners at their restaurant. The entrees were not only great but rather unique - 1) was fresh rabbit with baby... More

Best hotel out of the 4 we have stayed over two weeks in Italy. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful throughout the property. The food quality is excellent and the atmosphere on the large terrace overlooking the sea is very romantic . Friday night they had a pianist playing dinner music . Very nice touch !
