Bucca di Bacco felt a little overpriced. Nice atmosphere sure, but a little hostile service and bland food will make us look otherwhere next time...

Just visired ffrom scotland for a few days. We booked a table on the terrace and had great views of the sea. Waiters were very nice and courteous. Pasta was lovely and beef for main course. Hubby had pork which was tasty. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and glad we sat upstairs outside. Good for people watching.

This is a three level restaurant. Bar on first level. Restaurant on second and private patio on the third. We were lucky to be seated on the patio on the third level. Great view and nice breeze.

This restaurant had a cooking class which my friend did. Then we had the option to buy dinner there with the food the class cooked. We had Gnocchi with Pesto, Eggplant Parmigiana, Pizza and Lots of Red Wine. The waiters were very friendly.

We had a late dinner here, and had early evening aperols at their bar every night. Great service , and nocellara olives and crisps when you order a drink. The pasta and pizza were very tasty. Highly recommend.

My husband and I had a magical night of great seafood and a seaside view here during our short stay in Positano. Our dinner was memorable--calamari, a seafood platter and the caprese salad were all delicious. Watching people stroll by, enjoying the summer night, was also a treat!

A strange experience. The hostess had a nice smile and seemed welcoming, but her actions spoke volumes. As a lone diner, she sat several parties ranging from 2-8 people ahead of me. I asked to be in a corner with a beach view and she said those tables were reserved. Instead, I got a view of the China closet and... More

We turned up for lunch at 1230 with reservation and immediately (courteously) shown to a beachside table. The service was excellent (thank you Giovanni) and the food top notch. Having had three days of very mediocre food and surly service in Amalfi town we thought we would try Positano. The fresh calamari was very light and tender, homemade arancini superb... More
