“Phenomenal food and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This restaurant was so unique and beautiful. On the beach, built into a cave, fine dining ambiance on top of the view of the cliffs of Positano. For antipasti, our group of 6 got a beef appetizer, a shrimp appetizer, and another which I can't remember (other members of the group ordered). The steak I got was seasoned perfectly, and the rest of the group loved their meals as well. The wine list was extensive, and our waiter was very good in helping us pick out wines from the area and not automatically suggesting the really expensive ones. You have to walk through the Music on the Rocks club to get up to the restaurant and to leave, so that was cool to see it before dinner and then go for some drinks afterwards. One of our pricier dinners, but worth a splurge.

“Great Restaurant with a Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Perched on the rocks right down the bottom of the hill and off to the side this restaurant is easily missed but believe me it is worth finding. Great food, service and view. Not cheap but not over the top expensive.

“Beautiful Stunning Romantic and even Vegan too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

After traveling in Italy on our honeymoon, my vegan sensibilities were starving and sad. Our meal at Le Terrazze exceeded all expectations. We had planned a wedding in Positano and would've eaten here for our wedding reception- so we needed to experience it. It was amazing! The staff was so kind. The Chef even sent out a special Vegan amuse bouche for us! Our wine was incredible, the staff was very helpful. The attention to detail on the food was beautiful. We were seriously impressed. It was a true joy to dine here! This was the best meal I had in Italy by far. Every detail was impeccable.

“beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The view and the wait staff are beautiful here. The food was slightly above average, and the service was excellent, but doubt that I would return.

“Could not have been better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

While in Positano my brother and I had the opportunity to take a two hour cooking class through Cooking Vacations with the chefs at Le Terrazze. What an experience. With the head chef and his assistants we helped prepare a wonderful Eggplant Parmesan appetizer, a Tagliolini with fresh tomato sauce, a local Whitefish, caught that morning, fried and baked with garlic, tomato, olives and capers. While we were doing that the chef multi tasked and prepared a Chocolate Lava Cake with strawberry conserve. Each course is one of many outstanding choices on Le Terrazze's menu. And each was prepared exactly as would be done for a typical diner service. Once the meal was prepared we adjourned to the restaurant, which we had to ourselves, and were joined by our wives. We were then presented with the meal that we had just been prepared along with some terrific red and white wines and the nine types of freshly baked bread they normally serve with each meal.

While I said that we helped prepare the meal it should go without saying that the chef and his assistants were the real stars. We helped, learned some things about taste and technique and generally tried to stay out of the chef's way. The resulting meal was a sample of what the chef prepares every day at Le Terrazze. And from my point of view there is no better meal to be had in Positano than that served at this establishment.

Try it, you can't go wrong.
