“Our best meal in Positano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Of the four dinners we had in Positano, this was definitely our favorite. The owner (and I believe his son) were quite welcoming. The octopus and mushroom ravioli specials were probably the best dishes we ate on our entire trip (cacio de pepe in Rome was right up there). I can understand with some other reviews that eating outside with the cars going by may not be very pleasant, but that’s the case with many places in Positano… and that negative was pretty obvious with every street-side place as soon as we entered Positano for the first time.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The food was excellent, the place very charming, staff friendly. It is easy to find. Reservation might be good since the restaurants there are all small.

“Sensational gnocci alla sorrentina.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

We dined here after it was recommended by a friend. We started with a number of appertisers including the squid with potatoes, croquettes, tomato and mozzarella, and the mussels. All were fantastic but the squid and potato dish was very good. I had athe gnocci alla sorrentina and I've never tasted gnocci better. It was so soft and just dissolved in my mouth. The owner Lorenzo was very lovely as were the rest of the family and staff who were all very attentive.
I would suggest to make a booking as they were very busy even at the end of the holiday season.

“First night meal, tough to beat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Smaller, busy restaurant with great food and excellent service. Highly recommend as a must-go restaurant if you are eating in the main part of Positano.

“Molto Delicioso! We'll be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We usually travel to Positano once a year...at the very least every other year for the last 15 years. We rent a villa, hire a cook, and enjoy the Amalfi Coast to the fullest. I don't know why it has taken us so long to dine at Da Vincenzo but we are grateful for the recommendation of a local and dined there at least 3 times with different friends on our last stay. Not only is the food delicious, but the service was excellent and we loved the warm welcome from the owners. We plan to return to Positano next year and will make it to Da Vincenzo for sure. I'm dreaming of the mussels now!
