I loved the 'old' Positano, I like the new one

A trip to Positano was always a favourite during our yearly trips to MI. Sadly it was closed during our last visit so we were excited to see it had re-opened. The menu board was full of lovely suggestions but - thanks to the President - most of the stuff wasn't available. The Venezuelan mantra... read more

Food is good, always consistent, but service this time was very slow. I guess because of the high season.

We ate here twice, not beacause we loved it so much, but because the pizza was very good and the meals were consistent and convenient. I had the 4 cheese pizza-very good the first night, OK the second night. The kids liked the pasta. Service, like in much of this island, is never great. The fruit drinks are always good.... More

I have had dinner at Positano El Sambil a couple of times. Both times I liked the food. Service was fast too. Prices very reasonable!
