A special meal for a big birthday celebration. Giuseppe who served us was unfailingly attentive and accommodating. Clean and crisp decor and professional service. Very reasonably priced too. Well worth a visit.

Went there recently with my wife. This was probably the highlight of our entire trip to Italy. Brillian location and the pastas we both had were simply exquisite. I hope we could come back there soon.

This just became our favorite restaurant in Italy! Everything you read about this amazing restaurant is true. We ordered lamb that had been slowly simmering for 24 hours. It was divine. It was succulent. You could cut it with a fork and it melted in...More

Went here for a birthday meal after a day of visiting Mount Vesuvius and Herculaneum. These two places were amazing but still nothing when compared to the food served at La Taverna del Leone. The restaurant hits the right notes for service, everyone knows how...More

Amazing. The best restaurant on the Amalfi coast and our favorite in Italy. We went twice in the week we were in Positano! It is simple and elegant, yet not fancy. The pasta, pizza and fish - amazing. Molto Bene!

Relaxed atmosphere with totally visible kitchen. Highest quality, freshest ingredients. Wide variety of fish, seafood, meat, poultry, vegetables, salads & soups. Professional waiters. Fabulous wine list specializing in famous & obscure quality Italian wines. We went there every night. Worth every penny.

The rumors are true; food is so much better in Italy! Positano is absolutely amazing. It's one downfall is the ability to get around. Luckily the resort I was staying at had a shuttle service for this restaurant. Everything we had was outstanding. We actually...More

Unfortunately we don't have the right equipment to provide gluten-free pizza, but we do have many other gluten-free options!

Hi there, from Sorrento you can easily let the bus drive past Positano and stop near our restaurant. Otherwise, after a pleasant time of relaxation and shopping in Positano, the easiest way to get here is a cab from the... More

Dear Shaney, Yes, we do have a shuttle, but it only operates in the immediate surrondings of Laurito & Arienzo area. From your location, the best and fastest way would be a taxi. Otherwise, with the local Positano-Praiano... More
