So in we went, no table service, fine. Table with four chairs. We moved a chair from another table and were told that if someone needed it we would have to give it up?! Seating for 5 was not allowed! Clearly making so much money...they can treat customers like this. The shrug and dirty look of contempt by the staff reveals what they think of tourists. If you have money, burn it rather than give it to this cafe.More

My husband really liked his coffee and pistachio gelato, but I thought my hazelnut was just OK. We have had gelato and many different places, and most recently, I had hazelnut in vehicle in Quincy at a place called Gabriele end it was much better...and cheaper!More

Rude staff, got charged for 3 scoops instead of 2. Even though I told them 2 scoops was enough and didn’t need a third so they stopped at 2 but still charged 3 as they’d started with the larger cone. I couldn’t be bothered to...argue about it although they could see I was upset and it totally ruined my day and put me off their food.More

We stopped for gelato on a very hot September’s day. The flag ours were delicious and so tasty! Wish I had found this spot earlier.

We went here several times during our trip the gelato was that good. Plenty of flavors to choose from and all made there.

Impatient and rude staff can’t even greet customers with a smile. Gelato was subpar at best. Definitely wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone visiting Positano.

Hands down delicious and convenient if you are staying at Buca di Bacco hotel. However, always a long line so if you need a quick gelato fix there a few local choices.

Delicious gelato made right on site. I had the lemon with peach on a cone. It’s 3,50 euro for a small. Very refreshing and tasty.

Right off the beach in the Port. Excellent location to sit and relax with an ice cream and / or a beer or two! Recommended.

We were looking for some ice cream to enjoy Positano even better. We have easily found this place by trying to find out where people with ice cream in hand come from. The ice cream they sell is beautiful and tastes great as well. Definitely...a good experience in PositanoMore

On a hot May Day we stopped into this quaint little shop hoping for some very authentic and delicious gelato. It hit the spot in a big way with the vanilla and chocolate chip flavors. We had to come back for a second round after...more time in the heat and climbing the steep cobble streets of Positano. The people are super friendly and offer up samples once you commit to buying.More

This place was a welcome sight as we made our way back down from the top of the town on a sweltering hot day. For the Amalfi Coast the prices at 3 euros 60 for a tub of two scoops of delicious ice cream was...better thah we expected. A good choice of flavours to choose from.[More

They asked us to pay first and then we could ask for a sample. Fine. My first two samples were given with the tiniest sliver of gelato she could muster. Upon asking for my 3rd sample for a 2-scoop cone I was chastised and told...there was a 2 sample limit. Her coworker saved the day by swooping in and providing a 3rd normal sized sample. Gelato was good though.More

This was our reward after walking around all day. Great flavors, seemingly fair prices. The service can get hectic if there are a lot of people in the place. Not really any space to sit down.
