The view from the restaurant is incredible, overlooking the town and the beach! It was the only place that we saw that had Chicken Parm, so we were excited, but were underwhelmed. Everyone said the food here was great, but we thought it was average. Now the gelato on the other hand is another story. We gave it 3 stars... More

Great for lunch (like everyday you are in Positano). Super cheap, super easy counter service, fast service, great pizza, great gelato. We ate a lot of pizza along the Amalfi coast, and this was by far the best tasting, cheapest, and fastest.

Food was relatively good; vibrant bustling crowd and atmosphere. Waiter service left us a little 'cold'; just missed the pleasantries and friendly service we have received in many restaurants here in Positano. Location is right by the sea with great views out over the water.

We stopped here on a day out in Positano. We found the waiting staff very helpful and fluent in English. The food was of a good quality and fairly generous portions. I think here you pay a little more due to the location as we were looking out across the beach into the bay itself.

We sat at the bar multiple times on our trip, but were't super impressed by anything other than it being great for people watching and wine. Right in the middle of all the action on the beach in Positano, so a great place to go between meals when not a lot is open but you don't want to go back... More

The only dish that was pretty good was my husband's seafood risotto. The meatballs were not good at all. Service was just ok. In all of Italy this was the only restaurant that did not serve complimentary after dinner drink with dessert. We were really disappointed.

The one thing this restaurant has going for it is the location. It is located right on the beach in the middle of Positano. You can sit and people watch. The food is ok. Nothing special. The service is very slow. Not sure we would choose this restaurant again.

We ate here one night on our vacation. This place is right on the beach and very busy. The food was good and not overpriced. Great atmosphere.

Hi, By far the worst meal we had in Positano. Prices were very high, portions small and the food wasn't that good. We heard other people saying their meals were good but ours certainly was well below expectations. The decor is nice and everything but the food was good.

Thank psandbliss

The Buca di Bacco Hotel, with its renowned restaurant, became the destination of choice for tourists visiting the Amalfi coast in the early '50 during la Dolce Vita period. Here you will taste genuine and simple foods that will remind you of the flavours and vivacity of our land without forgetting its charming simplicity. The hall with the veranda overlooking the beach allows you to admire the sea view with the picturesque views of Positano by night.
