I loved my fish, same my husband. The service was very good, the gave us some complimentary limoncello at the end, nice touch. It was a little expensive, but I guess because of the location.

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.
