Set in he heart of the tourist district in Positano you’d be forgiven for thinking this is one to avoid. However do not fall into the trap of thinking that all “touristy” spots are money traps. The food was great, really affordable for its location...and the service was faultless. Highly recommend the Tuna (seared to perfection) and the classic tiramisu! Will be back!More

We stopped by for an hour or so, waiting for our ferry, and played some cards and enjoyed the view and had a negroni and an aperol spritz for 10 euros each and it was all rather lovely

We visited here after doing the Path of the gods and steps down to Positano, and the food was exactly what we were searching for after the hike - comforting, hearty Italian food that was delicious but unpretentious. My boyfriend had the clam pasta and...I had a simple tomato and basil spaghetti - the sauces were lovely! We went to a few places for pasta while we were here (Da Vincenzo, Tre Sorrelle), and this was the favourite.More

We booked dinner in Bucci di Bacco as it was recommended, but we were very disappointed. Fish is not fresh at all. Very touristic place. Do not recommended

With a location right on the beach it could get away with mediocre service and food. The food was very good, however, generous portions, and friendly service. Lovely atmosphere. Recommended.

Booked a table here with my other half and we had a table with a lovely view of the beach which was great. The tuna tartar started we really enjoyed, and our mains were also nice but I feel maybe a tad lacklustre. Nevertheless a...very good restaurant!More

One of finest meals I have ever had in Italy. We ordered the lemon risotto to share and I ordered the mixed grilled seafood platter which was magnificent. The lemon risotto was a unique, refreshing blend of lemon and the cheesy risotto. It was the...best risotto I have ever experienced. My daughter had the potato croquettes and they were perfect. I finished the meal up with a espresso that was perfectly done.More

Loved our meal at Buca Di Bacco. We asked for a table with good views and it did not disappoint. Sit on the terrace at the front for the best views of Positano and the ocean. Fabulous, fresh produce and excellent pasta dishes. The service...was also impeccable. We will definitely return on our next visit to Positano. Thank you!!!More

We stopped by this place completely on a whim not knowing how high quality and famous this place is. There are photos of celebrities on the walls leading up to the bathroom. We sat at a table near the open window and the breeze was...perfect, the food was amazing and the service was very prompt. Would recommend to anyone visiting Positano to come here for lunch or dinner!More
