“Best meal among many amazing meals in Positano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

Our driver from the Naples airport recommended that we try Da Vincenzo and it did not disappoint. We followed our server's recommendation and had the local seafood stew with a few different fresh pastas. It was one of the best things I have ever tasted. We also ordered the grilled calamari (pictured) and I assure you we don't have calamari like that in the states! Everything was delicious. We stayed at the Hotel Poseidon a just down the way and considered going back more than once on our trip...I wish we had. I found myself comparing every meal to this. So delicious! I will be back!

“Nice Food ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

We had a nice meal last night. The wait staff were very friendly and service was great.

Our only issue was the cost of the sea bass that was recommended by our waiter being the special for the night....be warned it's double even triple the price of other mains.

“Best restaurant in Positano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We have been to Positano and Da Vincenzo's several times and by far this is the best restaurant in town. On our last visit, we ate their twice during the week. The staff and owners are passionate and create a great family and dining experience. If you plan on eating after 8 pm, reservations are highly recommended. Also, you can sit outside, though only a couple of tables have any kind of view.

“Ah, that Mussel Soup!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely meal at Da Vincenzo but the highlight was the best Mussel Soup I have ever tasted. A taste sensation, and I am a fussy foodie. It was also quite substantial, a meal on its own! The service, however was quite surly and offhand and we felt quite rushed.

“Nice family restaurant with great Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

The only reason this doesn't get a 5 out of 5 is that Saraceno d'Oro restaurant just up the road was slightly better-priced with excellent food, and this was just about as good.
Nice Italian food with a very friendly manager who remembered my name when we arrived after booking with him earlier.
Such a lovely roadside atmosphere and Positano is a delight at night.
