Went for dinner on the basis of the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed, so much so that we went back 2 nights later! We had some great meals during our recent 3 weeks in Italy and those at La Taverna del Leone were right up with the best of them. Excellent service and value for money only add... More

Having read the tripadvisor reviews, we decided to go to La Taverna del Leone towards the end of our trip. We took the shuttle from La sponda crossroads and it was a short 5-10 minutes drive down the coast from there. We sat inside as the weather was turning cold. However, there are some tables outside if you wished to... More

Came here for dinner - this was one of those times in a restaurant I actually wanted to eat pretty much everything on the menu - as a non meat-eating pescetarian, there was so much choice for me! We started with tuna tataki and the tempura corgette flowers, which were both incredible, and I had lobster tortelli as a main... More

My wife and I visited La Taverna deal Leone while on our honeymoon. Impulse recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in or near Positano. The service was incredibly attentive and friendly throughout the meal. The setting is also lovely, being on the high Amalfi coast road. The starters we had were absolutely delicious. I had courgette flowers stuffed with burrata,... More

Stopped here on the way to a friend's wedding, were kind of in a hurry but we were served fast and the food was amazing. Giuseppe is a great host and all the staff were friendly.

Lovely restaurant with stunning food. Wide choice of pasta and pizza (from a wood fired oven) at very reasonable prices. They offer a shuttle service as well if required! Everything we ordered was delicious and the staff were excellent 👌

This was the best restaurant we ate in on our entire Italy trip! The host Guiseppe was extremely friendly, spoke great English and could tell us a lot about the food. The dinner started with a greeting from the kitchen followed by delicious Parma ham which literally was melting in the mouth. As main course we had filled pasta and... More

Lovely setting, but in the summer - take an indoor table. Outside there is traffic noise and mosquitos. The tempura zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta were delicious. Crab stuffed ravioli wonderful. A prawn entree a bit smallish, only 3 prawns .Pizza diablo was great (very hot pepperoni). Probably not the place to take young children. the bill took half an...

I really loved the atmosphere and the food was amazing!! The service was exceptional but they actually serve you too fast. So if you need a quick meal, this is a good place. I'm sure you can ask to slow down the service.
