This is our second holiday in Positano and we have eaten at many restaurants here. Most have been good experiences some truly excellent. The Saraceno d'oro for it's combination of truly friendly service, choice of food and quality of food is amongst the very best. I don't know how we missed it on our last trip. We decided to have a leisurely lunch and we actually arrived before they had opened. We were shown to a nice roomy table and ordered a drink whilst waiting for the restaurant to open. The owner decorates the trees with lemons and has wonderful tubs of colourful flowers all along the wall behind the tables. We both had the delicious bruschetta to start. For main course I ordered the local sausage, potato croquettes and baked aubergines and tomatoes. It was delicious, the sausage was very tasty and the aubergines quite simply one of the tastiest pieces of food I've ever eaten. I want to know how the chef does that. My wife had spaghetti vongole that she said was superb. Along with this we had nice fresh bread and white wine and a cold beer. It was all followed by a complimentary Limoncello. The owners and family run the restaurant, a b and b and a hotel all across the road and clearly take great pride in providing quality food and service.

We ate outside so atmosphere was great. Our waiter Pepe (Giuseppe) was outstanding, friendly, attentive, and personable. A good waiter makes all the difference. We had great pizzas, a Diavlo and a Sausage. We asked for a couple of different ingredients and they accommodated. Also a complimentary appertiff and after dinner drink. Great experience, highly recommend!

LOVED this resto in Positano! After walking up and down hills, we were offered a lovely shady spot amongst flowers. Server was very friendly, funny and helpful. Husband speaks Italian so they got along great. Loved the food, all of it, the wine and especially the refreshing complimentary shot of Limoncello. Bathroom is clean, indoor resto is lovely and clean. Very nice! Highly recommend it.

Good: we had cozze in tomato sauce for starter which was tasty. Bad: the pizzas we had were only average for the region and very salty. Service was a bit slow and we suspected that they may have wanted us to order drinks between the orders.

We were looking for somewhere to have our last lunch in Positano, had read reviews on this restaurant and walked up to have a look. Very happy singing young man invited us to sit and promised us the best pizza in Positano. Beautiful setting across the road under the trees, I had spinach and ricotta baked pasta and husband had their homemade pasta with seafood, we followed this with a shared pizza which was delicious as promised!! We had a nice bottle of wine and were presented with a complimentary limoncello to finish,fun waiter, good price, great service and really good food.Perfect!!
