Excellent food, upscale versus your run of the mill Italian. We were in Positano for 3 weeks and ate out most nights....this was in the top three. The meat/onion filled pasta with goat cheese topping was great. GF options for my wife. Try the interesting apps.

If you are looking for local, traditional Positano restaurant, this isn't the place. It is, indeed, fine dining from the food through the service. Waitstaff is friendly and English conversant yet professional and a touch distant as you would expect. Food options included spada carpaccio (very nice), 'ugly fish' (poached fish of the day, also very good), meat balls (very... More

We arrived by taxi from mid town Positano which is a standard €25. We shared stuffed shells with Ragu and Barata cheese and a wonderful grilled filleted fish with olive oil garlic lemon. The chef/owner was kind enough to speak with us for over 10 minutes- very nice young gentleman. Great experience.

My husband and I visited the restaurant on our recent trip to Positano. The food was great however the service was slightly slow and not very attentive. Nice decor and wonderful food. The griped octopus was slightly heavenly.

We visited Next2 because we had seen some of the reviews posted at the restaurant and it had a Michelin Certificate. Me and my girlfriend were not impressed at all. I am an ex chef and although I admit sometimes my expectations are high especially when spending a lot of money but the Next 2 was nothing special. I give... More

If you are looking for a quite dinner in an elegant setting this might be the place for you. As usual the food is outstanding, The location is a 15 minute walk from the bottom of the village. The restaurant is priced fairly for a fine dining establishment.

While the presentation was as expected for a high end restaurant, neither of us were impressed with our meal. My wife and I visited Next2 on 10/16 while on our honeymoon with high hopes. I had the scallops and prawns (the special for €30) and my wife who is a vegetarian had a pasta dish which consisted of noodles and... More

Day 4 in Positano and a long walk uphill from our B&B and worth all the effort. Excellent restaurant if more expensive than our usual haunts. Outstanding service - very prompt and attentive. The food was great - tuna, followed by pasta dishes, and great puddings. As a bonus you get an Amuse Bouche and a treat after pud. Add... More

Absolutely amazing food. Not cheap, but for a place that is on the Michelin list, you're getting good value. while all dishes were great, the beef cheeks were spectacular. Give this place a try if you're looking for a good meal with good ambiance.
