“Wonderful!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

First, the room itself is beautiful. Buttercream linens, and fine touches make one feel at home the minute you enter. The chefs, Filomena and Fortunata, and the excellent staff also make you feel at home. The food is also excellent. Lemon tagliolini, lemon tiramisu, ravioli alla capprese, light cheesecakes,fish with crazy water - to name just a few are delicious. The ravioli were the softest pillows you can imagine. We returned several times because the food was so wonderful. You must visit if you are anywhere near positano.

“Must eat here!!!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

My husband and I took a Cooking Vacations tour in Positano in Aug 2012 and had the great pleasure to learn, cook, and dine at La Taverna del Leone. Filamina, Fortunata and their staff were excellent hosts and teachers. Their love for food is evident in their outstanding dishes! They take great care in using fresh ingredients;the fish moger comes daily with the fresh catch which varies day to day. We ate(and made) pizza, ravioli, fish in crazy water, lemon risotto, hand made cheese,cheesecake, stuffed zuchinni...everything was mouthwatering delicious! No wonder they have been listed in Michelin Guide for the past 3 years. Your trip to Positano will not be complete unless you eat here. It's worth the 10 minute drive from Positano. I can't wait to go back and eat there again.

“Good last minute substitute”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Getting to the restaurant from Positano is a bit of a challenge, but they will pick you up at the end of the intra-Positano bus line and bring you back there. When you call, make sure to get a description of the vehicle and a good reference for exactly where the spot is. When all that's done, the restaurant is a good one. We just had an appetizer and a really good Margarita pizza. I gave the waiter a range of wine prices and he brought me one back from the top of the range, of course. Total bill for two, with wine was $125.
