Our last night in Positano, we spent dining at Chez Black. There is not one complaint, aside from their website stating gluten free options, and there being two to choose from. We chose this restaurant specifically for a gluten free member of our group, and...she was disappointed in her last meal in Italy.More

Great ambience and good food right on the beach for dinner. Service was great. Had to wait 20 mins without reservation, but that was expected during a busy time in Italy.

Food was sad and disappointing. The staff created a pretentious atmosphere out of nothing. High prices, loud, chaotic, crowded, no view, very stressful to have dinner there. When the atmosphere is bad, the food is below average, even the aperol spritz is sad, the prices...too high, you know it's one of the worst restaurants.More

The location was awesome, many famous people had stopped by over the past years. We ordered ravioly baby octopus and risotto. The taste is standard italian, however the atmosphere is extraordinary.

We had an early dinner without reservation. We were mostly happy with the food, only I didn’t like the fried baby squid because you couldn’t almost taste any squid, just the fried flour. The service was friendly. In general it was a good experience.

The setting is lovely, nice restaurant on the sea front and the food was OK. The service in the other hand was absolutely shocking!! Definitely not worth the hype!!

My brother in law insisted I go here because the food is suppose to be on another level. Once again, my brother in law was wrong. The food was good, but it should have knocked my socks off for the prices. We got the nero...di seppia and the spaghetti with sea urchin. Highlight of this meal was sitting next to Clive Davis.

Food was delicious but service left a lot to be desired. Had an 8pm booking and was put on the human conveyor belt of benches to wait out front with others. While we are waiting someone comes up asking for a walk in table (ie....with no booking) and gets seated immediately outside with an ocean view while we keep waiting and get seated 10 minutes later.More

Our first time to visit here. Arrived with no reservation and had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. Super busy lunch time on a week day. Great spot for people watching. We had pizzas which were just ok. Loaded to the brim with...cheese! Just a bit heavy compared to the normal lighter pizzas on the coast. A bit of style over substance in Chez for us but can see why some might like it. A place to be seen more than anything!More

Very good food but be aware even if you book months ahead unless you are staying at one of their hotels you will be given a table right at the back. We were practically in the kitchen.

We booked a table at Chez Black about six weeks in advance. We arrived and were told to wait in the queue. We explained again that we had a booking, but were told to queue. So we sat on a line of benches with about...20 other people (all of whom had also booked) and everyone was just baffled. What is the point of taking bookings if you then make your customers wait in a queue? We were literally sat on a human conveyer belt. No apologies, no drink while you waited - appalling service. Especially in Italy, where the hospitality is always excellent. We waited for half an hour, then left and went elsewhere. Over-hyped rubbish. Don't waste your time!More

Lunch was amazing. We didn’t have a booking and were given a front row table. Best service ever and beautiful food - couldn’t fault anything. Highly recommend a visit. Will definitely be back again.

We had lunch at Chez Black and it was great. We didn't have reservations but the host got us a table 1 row back from the sidewalk. The food and service were great. Would definitely recommend this fun spot for drinks and a meal.

Seafood pasta is excellent. Make sure to get homemade pasta. The Service is a bit relaxed but friendly. The Location is perfect.
