If you are visiting Positano, you will undoubtedly be told to go to Max's, but don't miss a visit to Buca di Bacco as well. This place has excellent food, a nice "on the beach without sitting on sand" feel, and the best tomato soup you will have on Earth. Good wine list as well.

We were staying in the hotel and had lunch here. We liked the food and started getting acquainted with our waiter. We were asking about the dinner menu and best restaurants in Positano. The waiter introduced us the the restaurant chef. The Chef recommended we go with him to the market and we could select what we wanted for dinner. We selected extremely fresh sea bass as the main entree. We watched him weigh the fish and told us he would take care of everything from there. He certainly did and it was great as he selected several other items and made us a fantastic meal. The service was very attentive and fun. Loved, loved, it.

This resturant is right on the beach and the food was wonderful! Its not on the menu but ask them to grill the calamari--so much better than the fried!

Came here twice in one day, once at 10.30 for a quick drink and ate a creme filled with ice cream... Were given free olives and crisps and stayed enjoying the sunshine for quite a while.. Waiters are suburb and they make you feel you can stay as long as you like... Amazing view
