As we were staying in Nocelle & this is the only restaurant within walking distance we have visited it several times, we have never been disappointed, the food & staff are always lovely, in our opinion considering prices on the Amalfi coast quite reasonable, on average our bill was around 90€ for 2 courses each with wine, bread, water &...

We'd arrived at the hilltop village of Nocelle above Positano for a late lunch at Santa Croce - it's a well-known establishment recommended by several travel guidebooks. The place was busy with hikers who'd completed the Sentiero degli dei trek earlier in the day but were lucky to snag a table. Food was fresh, local and generous and the service... More

This restaurant is at the west end of the path of the gods in Nocelle. It was a Sunday lunch time in mid October, but there were hundreds of people walking the spectacular path. They were a bit grumpy finding us a table, but cold beer materialised and all was forgiven when the food arrived - really good bresaola followed... More

The food and service are worth the trip up one night from positano for simple dining. But if staying in Nocelle it is the perfect location. The food was great quality and everyone is so nice and helpful. Antonio was great!

It's not properly easy to get there - unless you sleep in Nocelle - but the meal quality is simply outstanding. Not too many choices but it's a real local and fresh cuisine. Good wine selection and since you are not in Positano the price is super competitive. Few tables available recommended to book in advance especially during high season... More

We were glad that Nocella has such a superior restaurant considering it is a pain to take the bus up and back from touristy Positano. We ate here five nights in a row and the two brothers who run the restaurant give first class service with excellent ingredients and presentation. The menu and wine list are good. It overlooks the...

We stayed at the Airbnb nearby and had dinner there twice. The foods were delicious and the view was amazing. The staffs were very nice as well. Fresh produce and the chef were out picking herbs right outside of the restaurant. Highly recommend.

Every part of this experience was outstanding! The food is delicious, I had a risotto dish with lobster twice and fresh pasta with shrimps and... More

I rented an Airbnb in Nocelle and our host mentioned the only restaurant of the region when we passed in front. I decided to go with my girlfriend at night and was greatly surprised. The staff was worthy of a top restaurant, the view is stunning and the food is simply amazing. Our waiter told us about dishes that weren't... More
