An outstanding luxury hotel for a great price. Trivago had a great deal for 4 days / 3 nights in this beautiful Italian beach front town. The hotel staff is courteous and very helpful. We were greeted with a FREE welcome dinner with an amazing view of the sea. Delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Will definitely return.

We found this place as soon as we got off the ferry and had an aperol spritz and it was superb! Came back again the next 2 days and enjoyed a pizza and cappuccinos. Prices were reasonable and staff were always friendly!

We came here for dinner on our only night in Positano. The sea view was great from the terrace and the patio heaters were a welcome addition. The food was good, i had a pizza and my girlfriend had a swordfish pasta but it seems you do pay a premium for the view as we have had better food elsewhere.... More

Buck was recommended by our B&B for dinner upon arrival as we did not have a reservation. They are in the heart of the tourist beach area and the food was god, with some lows (greasy pumpkin blossoms with unmelted cheese) to some nice pasta and grilled fish. The overall quality was less than we are used to in our... More

We had Calamari and Ravioli and both were great. It was the best calamari I have ever had. Mouth melting and not very oily. Food was really great and staff were friendly.

We ate twice here on 4 day stay. Enough said. Proper food, best service, amazing views. Not to be confused with cafe downstairs.

Positano is a jewel. The hotel is amazing. The restaurant is a bit above average, but room for improvement; there are others far better in the area. A great setting though next to the beach and friendly service.

This is a traditional family restaurant/hotel setting. Both the food and service was ok but it lacked a special friendly feel as the overall service involved multiple staff rushing along to the table bringing, removing, questioning. Menu offered quite a wide choice. Room for improvement in making the customer feel special.

We highly recommend Buca Di Bacco. It has a lovely open interior with great views of the beach and evening light from the windows. Staff was attentive. Best of all: the food was delicious. I tried the Pulpo (octopus) at many of the local restaurants and it was the tenderest and most flavorful here. Early in the season we had... More
