“Delicious but service not great”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The pasta was great. It's a major scene after 8 pm and the service becomes very slow. If you like a scene, it's great to people watch on the beach!

“Seaside Dining - Positano Style”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were referred to Chez Black by a resident who worked at the local perfumery store. We were so glad we asked for a recommendation for lunch. It was a beautiful day in Positano and then the clouds opened and it poured rain. We made our way to the restaurant from one of the hill streets with great shops. We were welcomed by the owner warmly and sincerely. We had a lovely table as the sun came out and the restaurant began to fill with guests. They have a Caprese Salad menu - with your choice of buffalo mozzarella - you must choose the region that your mozzarella comes from - so good. We had pasta - which was very good. Also excellent "Spritz".

“I loved, loved, loved this place!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Maybe it was the wine, maybe it was the relaxed atmosphere, or maybe just the moment, but I really loved my entire experience at Chez Black! We went there for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. It was a bit cold out but the heat lamps were on, so it was comfortable sitting outside in the first row watching the world go by. Truly enjoyed the atmosphere - seeing the locals and tourists stroll by in their Sunday best, seeing local boys playing soccer on the beach and on the adjacent square, watching the beautiful people at Chez Black and the host working his magic! (He is friendly and accommodating - made sure we were comfortable). At first glance, the place seems pretentious but it's not. The food was fantastic- I had seafood pasta - and the service was great. They didn't rush us out of there despite the fact that people were waiting. Had a very leisurely lunch with wine and dessert. Go there for lunch, especially on a Sunday afternoon. it encompasses everything you think about when you envision the Amalfi Coast beach atmosphere!
