We stayed at Hotel Maricanto and decided to try the restaurant out one evening. The food was delicious, the setting romantic with stunning views and there was a live pianist to set the ambiance. Unfortunately they ran out of the veal and the menu was slightly limited but the food preparation definitely made up for it. Out of all the... More

We were staying at the hotel and had dinner here one night. When we arrived they had a special reserved sign with our names on it what a nice touch. From the start we were treated so nice and were given special little treats that the amazing chef had made. The food was outstanding and the ambiance so nice. We... More

Can't fault the ambience, service or food. Worth the walk up the hill and part of the Hotel but you wouldn't know it. Had a pianist playing and sat on the terrace with an outdoor heater whilst we had our second last night in Positano. Great recommendation from Luca and the team at Villa Magia. They know the best spots... More

We at here several nights in 2015 where typical Italian dishes were served. We returned hoping for the same this year. Unfortunately it seems the Chef has changed and novella cuisine is now being served. Unfortunately the Chef is not up to standard on this type of cooking. Our food was terrible and had to send back his dreadful offerings.... More

"Horrendous"?? We think it's a very ungenerous criticism...However, the answer is "No, the Chef hasn't changed" and this year, as last year, we offer traditional costiera and mediterranean dishes. We particularly regret that you didint enjoy your dinner and we would like to have soon a second chance. The management More

The food and wine was good, prices acceptable and the great view on the bay and sunset. Better to book if you come after 9pm.

We found this restaurant while walking through the streets of Positano. We wanted a special dinner for our last day in the Amalfi coast. This was an unforgettable surprise: the food was outstanding, the best in our italian trip. The terrace facing Positano was elegantly arranged, cozy and relaxing. The service was superb, attentive, exquisite. A fully recommended restaurant at... More

Great hotel, impeccable service, staff will do anything they can to help, speak a little Italian and they will love you. Make sure you get a room with a balcony and sea view. Restaurant is more sophisticated than down on the beach but not much more expensive.

We have had lunch and dinner at 6-7 different restaurants in Positano, and this is the best and most pleasant meal so far. Lovely and quiet terrace with a view. Good food, excellent burger for the kids. Calm and relaxed atmosphere, yet luxurious. Prices were also reasonable with around €20 for the main courses (fish and meat).

Recommended to us by our hotel for the views and the food, this was a great choice. Classy but unpretentious. The staff were really welcoming and the food delicious. My husband was also impressed with their comprehensive wine list. Combine all this with the superb views and romantic ambiance and you have the essence of the Almalfi coast! Expensive yes,... More
