“Absolutely Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

During our visit to Positano last week we visited many restaurants and enjoyed a lot of great traditional Italian food, however this restaurant was by far our favorite. La Tagliata was recommended to us by our hotel and it was completely worth 20 minute shuttle bus ride to the restaurant. Upon arriving we were warmly greeted by the owner who seated us personally and almost immediately food and drinks were brought to us. It was a little bit of a different experience as there is no menu and you really have no idea what is going to be served but watching the other diners enjoying their food left no doubt that the wait would be worth it... and it certainly was. There were 4 courses served of various items, appetizers, salads, pastas, meats, and desserts and every course was better than the last. The restaurant itself was warm, cozy, romantic and the entire atmosphere was fun and friendly. There was a singer and guitarist there playing traditional Italian music (upstairs, downstairs was more American music) during the meal which was very entertaining. At one point the singer actually started handing out instruments to guests and encouraging people to participate and the owner and "mama pasta" came out as well to join in. All of the food was perfectly prepared and served in a timely manner... I saw some other reviews about people feeling rushed however we didn't have that experience at all. As much as we completely enjoyed our experience there is one thing that we would change. We would've liked to have seen a menu as to what they were serving so that if there were things that we didn't like or were allergic to we could've asked them not to serve it. There were certain things that were served that we didn't want and were sad to see them wasted. The prices were a little higher(35 euro per person including wine) than any of the other restaurants in the area however the amount of food and wine served were well worth it and still way cheaper than a meal like this would be at home. Other than that the whole experience was amazing and we would highly recommend it as a place that must be visited when in Positano.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We celebrated our son's wedding reception here. The food was excellent and the service very good. Easily the best meal we had whilst staying in Positano. The views from the restaurant were amazing and the ambiance were relaxed and cosy. A very big thank you to Peppe and his staff for the wedding cake which was a lovely surprise. If you choose to eat here you will not be disappointed it comes highly recommended.

“Very nice evening at good price, not the best food though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

They swing by on shuttle buses to different hotels to bring people up. No menu-- they just bring out multiple plates for each course and endless house wine. It was a very nice evening with friendly hosts, but you should definitely insist on going at your own pace so you don't get lumped into the fast-paced dinner and then shuttled back down. At €35 each, this was a worthwhile and memorable experience, just make sure you go at your own pace, walk around to see the whole restaurant, and avoid being shuffled along with the others that came on your shuttle.

While it was something different and a fun atmosphere, I do wish the food had been a little better. With the whole family-made style, I was hoping this to be the best meal of our trip, but some of the dishes lacked the wow factor. The appetizers were the best part. By the time of year we visted (mid-September), the sides were all covered by clear plastic tarps, so we really weren't able to get the full vibe of the view that I've been reading so much about.

“Must do in Positano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

One of, if not the best, meals ever! We were picked up in front of our hotel and for a very reasonable price (35 Euros each) we had course after course of a fantastic meal. No menu so the mom and pop in the kitchen serve what they have been cooking all day, probably days, in advance. Excellent service, cozy restaurant and unbelievable views. It was the complete dining experience.
