Description: This resaurant is sometimes considered to be part of Positano but it is actually located in a small city called Montepertuso which is right up above Positano in the Mountains. The restaurant has an amazing view and very tranquil atmosphere. Service is great, and is literally a family restaurant. The food they offer is out of this world, fresh ingredients, and absolutely delicious. Personal favorite is the Florentine steak and I can't go without mentioning nona's Ravioli. The restaurant offers a free shuttle service that can pick you up and even drop you off back at you hotel in Positano after a little too much to drink. It's a shame that this restaurant isn't already listed! I hope that tripadvisor will give people the opportunity to learn about this delicious restaurant.

We thought the food was above average, and priced right, and the service was good, too. I especially liked the fact that when the waiter recommended a bottle of wine to go with our meal, he made sure to tell us the price, without being asked. Also, when someone in our party asked about the salmon dish, the waiter came right out and said they have it on the menu because a lot of customers like it, but that it was not the freshest fish they serve.

I have to say everyone at the restaurant, from the shuttle driver to the young lady who greeted us at the door to the waiter, was friendly and courteous.

My parents and I ate our way through Italy for 3 weeks, (Florence, Venice, Rome, the Amalfi Coast), but the place we most look forward to visiting again next year is Ristorante Scirocco. The restaurant with it's charming ambiance combined with the talent in the kitchen made for the best night. Chef Pasquale's creations were absolutely incredible and his dessert was unequivocally the best we had in Italy. The only thing better than the food, were the people! His daughter, Veronica, and our server, Tancredi were attentive and gracious. We left with full bellies and happy hearts! Thanks again everyone at Ristorant Scirocco, we'll see you next year!

The food was nice but somewhat overpriced. Views are amazing. The service was great and the waiters are very friendly.

My family had an amazing dining experience thanks to our delightful hostess Veronica, our comedic waiter Tancredi and the culinary magic of Chef Pasquale. They all made us feel like part of the family. This is family style dining in a beautiful dining room over looking Positano. The food is "farm to table" and everything from the pasta to the blueberry liquer is made from fresh, local, seasonal ingredients with a menu that changes accordingly. The people and the food here will long be remembered and I am looking forward to returning again next year. (Good Luck in Minnesota Tancredi)!

You must eat here if in Positano. Unlike other reviews, we had no problems at all. We had a great shuttle ride up to the restaurant with a driver that clearly loves his job explaining all the sites on the way up. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by the chef's daughter and our "heavy set" waiter who was fun and informative. We spoke for quite awhile about restaurants in Italy and America. The service was great and so was the meal. My blueberry covered steak was excellent and the hazelnut with honey parfait for desert was fabulous. The homemade ravioli were also excellent. We had a complimentary glass of sparkling wine before dinner and a glass of limoncello and blueberry liquor afterwards. I'd say stick with the recommendations of the masses and give this place a nod.
