First night back in Nocelle and knew we could get a lovely dinner in Santa Croce after last years visit, not disappointed . Large portions, very tasty and attentive staff.

This restaurant is nestled in the small town of nocelle, a bus ride away from positano village. The food was exceptional. We had the lamb chops and a lovely seafood risotto, which were two of the best dishes I have ever had. The service was impeccable. The view was also exceptional overlooking the coastline. Overall this place is worth a... More

The view is magnificent.... The food is absolutely delicious. ... A hidden gem tucked away in a mountaintop village. If you don't consider yourself a typical tourist, then your trip to Positano isn't complete without a visit to Nocella and a meal at Santa Croce. Either climb the 2000 steps, take the quaint local bus from Positano or hire a... More

Wow! We just finished the Walk of the Gods and came across this restaurant in the tiny town of Nocelle, and spontaneously decided too have lunch as we were famished after climbing 1000+ steps! What a surprisingly delicious meal- the calamari pasta and melanzane were amazing and the beers ice cold! Would highly recommend stopping off there if you are... More

The restaurant is situated in the heart of the village of Nocelle, which is 5 kms outside of Positano, and is the only one in the village. As Nocelle has a number of B&B's and is on the Path of the Gods, it has a bit of a captive clientelle but, of the restaurants we tried in the area, we... More

Hot and tired from walking the Path of the Gods, we came upon this surprising gem. The food was delicious and the view spectacular. The hospitality was a warm welcome.

We ate in Santa Croce on the first night of our stay in Nocelle, and ended up eating there every night. The staff are extremely professional, attentive without being overbearing, whilst the food and wine are excellent, as well as being reasonably priced, especially by Positano standards . The views from the restaurant are amazing, and we can't imagine any... More

We liked everything - antipasti, lamb chops and fish. Their potato chips are great as well as the view and service

Didn't stay to eat in the end. We had just finished the amazing sentiero agli dei walk and needed refreshment. We were met with very grouchy unwelcoming staff. The place was half empty but we were asked if we had a booking. We were shown to a table then someone else asked us to move. After waiting for another 10... More
