We have eaten at Donna Rosa for several summers and always enjoy our dinners! The black and white pasta is my favourite while my wife loves the balsamic chicken. They are very courteous, fun and warm! Also, they are very good with allergies and dislikes and don't make a fuss over it. This is not a place with a view,... More

The most expensive meal we had in Positano but I can see why. The food was of the highest quality and staff very attentive. I had cannelloni which probably the best I've eaten, I can understand why chef's come to their cooking classes

We made a reservation for a group of six based upon the recommendation of a long time fan of the restaurant. Every dish was exceptional, great wine list and the chef and staff were friendly and went out of their way to make sure the dishes selected by each individual was suited to their palette. We felt like a part... More

It's one of the best food I ever ate in my life! You see those 3 women working in the kitchen with lots of love and passion. They treat you very nice in the restaurant and also fulfill your special wishes. It's no the cheapest restaurant but because of that the food is outstanding. They also serve very good classic...

Away from the tourist crowds - a true taste of Italy. Wonderful food and very pleasant service. Some of the best food on Positano.

OMG - the food here is amazing! Very friendly staff and the chef was so charming. Everything we ate had such flavour and not a scrap was left - would have licked the plate if no one was watching! Well worth the trek up the mountain to have a meal here - but make sure you book - you can... More

My hubby and I were staying in Montepertuso and fancied walking for tea rather than catching the Positano bus. Our host at our B&B recommend this restaurant. We rang and booked for that night and the lady we spoke to was friendly. We arrived and were greeted by a waiter who showed us to a table on the terrace. We... More

Visited Donna Rosa after reading lots of good reviews on trip advisor and from it being recommended to us. It is absolutely worth going to. I pre booked on email a few weeks before and they arranged to collect us from positano on a shuttle. The car arrived on time outside our hotel and drove us up to the restaurant.... More

We read about the restaurant in Lonely Planet, so we thought to give it a try. Unfortunately it didn't meet our expectations. The location is nice and the host was very friendly but that's all. First of all, you couldn't get a wine with less than 40 euros! Then the food was ok but nothing special for the price. For... More
