Our family booked a table at Chez Black to celebrate New Year's Eve. Our expectations for the fixed-price holiday menu were not high, but we were amazed as course after stunningly delicious course of the chef's creations were served. In terms of food, service and ambiance this ranks as one of the best meals my family has enjoyed.

Restaurant is placed as far down in Positano as it is possible to come - worth rememberring if you have to pick up your car at "main road level"! Very cosy and busy with smiling and good service. Fine wines by the glass (perfect for the driver!). Try the Black pasta with octopus :-) Good food but also they now... More

This was honestly one of my most favorite dining memories. The location and view are perfect. Service was THE BEST I had in Italy. It was honestly of all the cities I visited the only time I received service compatible to what I am used to at home. Very courteous staff. Prices are a little expensive but completely worth it....

The location is beautiful right on the water. The menu has all of the items I have come to expect in this region of Italy. This is fine for a meal but not special. My fish was small and overpriced. This felt very touristy and that is what it is. Food is good just not special.

This was a lovely visit with my family to this restaurant literally right on the beach. I expected a touristy rip off and what I got was genuine warm service, great food, well served and a lovely wine list. Not cheap but certainly not excessive for the location and the spot for a beautiful day out. A really lovely family... More

I went to Chez Black's last year with my girlfriend. I can honestly say that it is the best dining experience I have ever had. And working in the 5* hotel industry, I am lucky enough to try exceptional restaurants worldwide. This tops the lot. Service - Absolutely perfect. Gianfranco, you are a true gent. Food - I can't write... More

We stopped at Chez Black after an afternoon at Capri. As it was an off-peak hour, we were able to snag one of the tables outside along the beach. The view and setting are breathtaking, with the beach of Positano directly in front of you and the colorful town rising up the mountain to your right. We sampled quite a... More
