We happened to be walking back past Al Marincanto on our way back from a day of sea-kayaking and they had a menu advertising great food and a piano and violin evening.
This sounded very good and significantly more cultured than some of Positano's other offerings.
The food and wine here were excellent and the music was such a good idea in the lovely setting. If you get chance to visit here for one of these nights, you must go. It will be one of your best experiences of eating out in Positano.
The food here was first class, showing imagination and style that was a little lost in many other places in Positano.
The only negative was the lack of staff at key points during the meal. Whilst all of the staff were helpful and polite, they did keep vanishing for long periods of time. One minute there would be 2-3 people serving and then 40 minutes would pass with no-one in sight.
This did not ruin a special evening but it did significantly extend our meal as we arrived at 8.30 and were still trying to pay the bill after 11!
Overall, well worth a visit, especially on a music night. Try and pick a table as close to the edge of the balcony as possible as the view over the bay in the evening is probably the best in the area.
The main thing here is that the experience is worth the price and the hotel is creating an experience that justifies a good price. Well done and keep up the good work!
