I suggest you La Tagliata in Montepertuso, good food, good wine and free shuttle service to and from your hotel.

In Positano, we really enjoyed the Mediterraneo Restaurant - great food and atmosphere especially on a Friday night, with live music. A great family restaurant in Rome is Piacere Molise, close to the Vatican. Amazing lemon ravioli!

For seafood lovers, there is La Cambusa, very pleasant place just on top of Chez Black, same level as the stores and has a nice terrace with a view on the sea and the beach.

Dear lovethesun7,

You might consider the suggestions from lolalu as locals have been known to head up there to eat. Positano is notoriously expensive, however, those two restaurants above on the mountain offer incredible food and a spanning view of the town out to the sea without plastic-like formality and stiffness. Also as mentioned, the prices are rather fair and not excessive.

Buon Appetito...

Dear kkushiba1,


The restaurants on the montain are excellent and there is nothing I can say about it but you cannot say the one at the beach are no good! Come on now!!!!

La Cambusa is for sure one of the best down there and the other 3 restaurants in montepertuso are not the same. Please.

And once again forgive me if I am saying something like that.

I am being very fair and honest, also considering that I am a lover of La Tagliata, Il Ritrovo, etc in Montepertuso!

If the whole of the restaurants on the beach were so bad they were going to be all empty and there was going to be a long line outside the restaurants on the mountain, but this is not the case!
