Great place for lunch!

The Trattoria San Gennaro was at the top of the hill of the beach. After a morning of swimming we had worked up an appetite. We got to the restaurant at 12 but it doesn't open for lunch until 12.40. So we waited. We had brushetta, chicken pizza and margarita pizza. The food came out quickly, the... read more

We first came here for Sunday lunch and could barely find a spot as the place was packed with local families. The trattoria has some stunning views. Its situated right over church and its adjacent piazza with sweeping views of the ocean and Amalfi coast in the background. In addition to the views the food is stellar. The grilled eggplant,...

Great location, fantastic home cooked food and wonderful service. The pizza is not to be missed and the fish was grilled to perfection.

Why? In the distance, the view of the Amalfi Coast is spectacular, esp. lit up at night. Closeup, directly below the restaurant, I found it delightful to watch the locals with their children gather in front of the lovely church in the beautiful tiled courtyard, for play and evening chats. The basic open house red wine is the best my... More

We spent a Sunday afternoon in Praiano and stumbled upon this place. It didn't look like too much from the outside, but it was close. We were so surprised to see it filled with locals. We were then even more surprised to be taken to a able on the deck with the most spectacular views of Positano. It kept getting... More

First clue was very unhelpful waitress. She was looking out the window when she was taking our order. Very disinterested. No smile. We were looking forward to hearty vegetable soup on a chilly damp evening. What we got was a bowl of pureed vegetables with a ton of salt that looked more like pea soup. The price of the "soup"...

Had spaghetti with meat sauce. Pasta was different, but very good. Hubby thought it was the best in Italy.

Great place to stop and have a pizza after seeing the church. Great view, great service. They actually have quite a large menu and the food looked good although we just had a pizza. Watch for extras put on your table. You are paying for them.

We walked down to Trattoria San Gennaro, tired from along day's travel and were ready for a quick and easy meal before calling it a day and getting ready for our Praiano experience the next day. We were warmly welcomed, taken to a table with a brilliant mid-evening view and after checking out the Menu while we drank our beers,... More
