“Definitely eat here if you come to Positano”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

This restaurant is way up on top of the cliff in a town called Nocelle. You have to take the Montesomthing (can't remember)- Nocelle bus line for 1.30 euro a ticket. It is totally worth it. We were actually staying in Nocelle and ate here twice.

Everything is homemade, fresh and delicious. Its a family owned place and the staff is so friendly and accommodating. The view is breathtaking.. It feels like you are sitting in the clouds. It was a dining experience I will never forget.

“Beautiful view, lovely home style Italian food”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had dinner in this lovely trattoria because we were staying at a b&b in Nocelle.
We ordered the eggplant parmigiana , Grilled whole Sea Bass with garden salad . We also tried the families home made wine.
The whole grilled sea Bass , Oh So fresh , we really enjoyed everything about this trattoria
They gave us bruschetta with tomato along with Limoncello's towards the end of the evening.
The view was stunning , the service wonderful and the prices reasonable.
The evening we were there , we watched an amazing fireworks display from our table it just topped the evening off perfectly.

“Nice view”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We were pretty early, 11:30am, and seemed to interrupt a family meal but they were very accommodating. We just had a light lunch and the food was great!

Simple food prepared beautifully. They play to their strengths - locally sourced ingredients and lovely wine. I cannot recommend this place more highly.

“Wonderful local restaurant.”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

We were staying in nearby Casa Cucarro B&B which is only a two minute walk to the restaurant and had a couple of dinners and a lunch at Santa Croce . Family owned and passed down through the generations this is an excellent place. crisp white linen and well decorated throughout - this is a really good local restaurant . We were lucky enough to get a table right at the front where the windows were flung open. the views along the Amalfi Coast out as far as Capri and down over Positano were to die for particularly at sunset. However this is a restaurant review and not just a tourist attraction. the quality of the food was exceptional - we had the steak served over a bed of rocket and with tomatoes and Parmesan - absolutely gorgeous. Also had the sea bass on another night and sea food spaghetti at lunch. excellent value , tasty food and attentive ( but not overly so) staff. Even if you are staying down in Positano ( 5 km away) it's worth the trip . Well recommended.
