This was one of our favourite meals in Positano. I had the stuffed courgette flowers and the seafood stuffed ravioli and it was just perfect. The outdoor terrace also has great views over the town. Our hotel was nearby so not as much of a hike but it is quite a way up the hill although they do have a... More

We decided to try out this restaurant when we were staying in positano. We booked a table the same day via our hotel (just to be on the safe side) It's not located in the center of positano but definitely walking distance from our hotel (punta regina). Very friendly and professional staff (one who liked system of a down, which... More

Perfect views, great food and exceptional service!! This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, although it is set up high in the hills, the restaurant sends their driver to pick you up and when you're done ... They drive you back!!! The food & service was that good that our group of 9 went there 2 nights in a row!... More

Beautiful food, view and service. The free shuttle to the restaurant is a lovely touch, and it is clearly popular with locals and tourists alike.

450...that is how many stairs we had between our hotel room and this little piece of Positano heaven. With sweat dripping from under our hats we cooled down with a good local white wine. The Spaghetti alle Vongole was delicious. So was the day's special which was a crab filled ravioli. The service was superb and we were even offered... More

We loved our meal at C'era Una Volta. They picked us up from our hotel in Positano (complementary) to drive us to the restaurant. We ate out on the lovely terrace with views out to the sea. The food was delicious - the fish of the day in particular was outstanding. We even had a 5 piece band play for... More

We have traveled extensively through the whole of Italy many times before as our background is Italian, our standards of Italian food is extremely high. We just got back from spending 4 weeks in Positano & thankfully during our 2nd week C'era una volta was recommended to us by a local. Prior to that we tried many of the restaurants... More

We were recommended to go to this restaurant by the people at our accommodation. They offer a pick up/drop off service which is very handy - although as they are up the hill I imagine many people would not be able to get there otherwise. The meal was fantastic, tasty and true to the area. The waiter was personable and... More
