If you are looking for great food, this is the place! It takes Italian food to a completely different level. My husband and I live in the area and we can't help but return over and over again. We always want to try new places but find ourselves coming back because it is impossible to get a bad meal. The... More

We ate here twice during our brief stay in Positano in May 2016. The service from the car transfer from our villa to the meal and return was impeccable. The food was great and would highly recommend to anyone.

Can not believe this restaurant has such high reviews. The pizza was undercooked and terrible. We ordered four different pizzas,three looked the same. Except one had a ton of garlic on a few slices, the smoked mozzarella tasted a lot like the mozzarella on the margarita. Now let's talk service. We saw the waiter twice in the very long three...

Giuseppe G, Owner at La Taverna del Leone, responded to this review

Dear Santinobread, dear TripAdvisor community, this review looks everything but a real truth about our restaurant. Our restaurant is very famous in the area for delivering one of the best pizzas of the surroundings since its opening in 1965, and this is confirmed by the fact that most of our guests, especially during the low season, are local. well, If...

We loved it so much, we ate here twice. We did reserve a third time, but were so wiped out from the day trip to Capri that we ordered in pizza instead. The fried, stuffed zucchini flowers were the best ever and I do hope to enjoy something similar someday. The pastas were great and the cannolis are divine. But,... More

We had a fantastic experience with La Taverna del Leone. The place is not near the centre of Positano but upon booking you may request for a pick up service to go to their restaurant and back to the hotel. It is a family run business and all of the staff provided excellent service. The menu has a lot to... More

We had dinner twice at this restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the excellent service. They offer everything from pizza to pasta and seafood. Ingredients are fresh and since there is an open kitchen you see how the food is prepared. We were disappointed by most restaurants we tried in Positano but would... More
