We were staying in the Tower below the main square - and it is approximately 450 steps from the tower up to town & to this restaurant!! No one said it but we were all thinking "hope it was worth the climb!" The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming! We were all in the mood for a pizza sharing fest,... More

this is our local go to restaurant while in Praiano. Family owned and run. Overlooking Chiesa San Gennaro and the beautiful Mediterranian. Reasonable food: pastas, pizza and seafood. The muscles in a white wine sauce are a must.. A huge platter and only 10 euros!

Our hotel host recommended this place and said not to order for everyone in the group, but we forgot and did end up with way too much food. Which we really hated to waste because it was so delicious. It's been a few months since our visit and we traveled extensively (months!) before and after, but I still remember the... More

I tend to agree that the food is not bad, but first of all the servings are very large, and if you did not discard that much food, maybe you could step up on the quality. The place was quite deserted when we arrived - clearly the end of the season - maybe this was the reason the service was... More

I ate dinner here one night at the end of October, mostly chose the place based on the view, overlooking the church as well as Positano. The food that I chose was good but not great, the tables and chairs that I was at (outside) were on small pebbles that somehow made things a little uncomfortable (not the end of... More

One of our stops while traveling was in Pariano on the Coast of Amalfi. We were "up town" one evening and decided to try the Trattoria San Gennaro and we are very glad we did! The food was some of the best we experienced while in Italy. The staff was pleasant and the service relaxing. When you are traveling the... More

This is by far one of my favorite places in Praiano. I always return every other year. We stayed for 5 weeks this time, so we ate out a lot We had so many meals , lunch or dinners at Gennaro. We loved the house red wine. We ordered it by the bottle and even took some home. The service... More

First off we did not realize about daylight savings time change. So the owner must have thought we were hungry Americans when we tapped on his door 15 minutes before he opened. He greeted us with laughter and seated us at a prime viewing table.we started with a salad and a nice bottle of house white wine.ordered one lasagna and... More

Literally walked up upon this great trattoria, that serves great food and also has a great view of Positano. For really good Italian food this trattoria served us hot and plentiful portions for a reasonable price. Some places over charge for the view and give less than stellar service. Trattoria san Gennaro - pizzeria-(camere) gave us fine service and tasty... More
