very good food

We ate only once at this restaurant, because we wanted to try as many as possible. The food was very good, we tried salad and pizza and we really enjoyed it.

The restaurant ha a nice view and nice decor. My experience was not so good since an under-cooked steak of sword fish made one of my friends feel really sick. Enjoy the view but be careful about what you eat and if you feel sick be aware that the staff will be totally oblivious to your discomfort.

Il Capitano is the hotel restaurant of the Hotel Montemare located above Positano on the only road down into down. The restaurant in season is located on an attractive open air terrace with great views out to sea and over Positano and the hills and cliffs above. It is possible to catch a wonderful moonrise during dinner if you happen... More

The view is great, the beer and coke zero was good. But the food was a huge disappointment. I ate the seafood risotto, and it was not good. My bf ate the gnocci pasta with clams, and it was so bad, that he couldn't eat it. The customers sitting next to us was also really disappointment with the food. The... More

Was on a walk up along the Positano coast. The restaurant has great views of Positano and outdoor seating. Quick and efficient service. We had a nice pizza lunch and took photos.

.....was disappointed, it promised a lot. Beautiful terrace location overlooking the main beach, off the main road, lovely table settings. Tuna Tartare and the Skipjack Mojito were very bland tasting. Was going to wrap up lunch there but was still hungry and thought we would just split a pizza.....don't bother. This is Italy, the home of pizza, it wasn't good.... More

Beautiful views over Positano. Sit back and relax with a Campari or an Aperol Spritz and enjoy the sun setting over the water. The food and service were great and prices reasonable.

The outdoor dining terrace is spectacular! Really amazing sweeping ocean views. The food was excellent as well. The hostess/server could have been more friendly, but then again we were the first customers of the evening and she was eating her own dinner when we arrived. Anyway, i would recommend this place highly for the great view and food. The pasta... More
