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.
