“Real home made italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

If you are stuck up in Nocelle as I was, the good thing is that at least you have a good restaurant like this! The food is really good and the price is low. Everything is home made and the restaurant is simple but nice: inside a cave with a terrace overlooking the sea. Bad thing: loads of mosquitoes and flies. We came here every night for a week - there's nothing else in this town and Positano is 35min away by bus...

“A Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Stay in Nocelle above Positano. No matter how long you stay eat at only two restaurants. Alternate nights, one at Il Ritrovo, next night at Santa Croce. Il Ritrovo just five minutes down hill from Nocelle but they will pick you up and drop you off. Santa Croce in Nocelle, a two minute walk from your accommodations. Save all the time and guesswork. These are the two best in entire area. Price, service,and atmosphere can not be beat. You will get to know the wonderful people who own and serve at these spots and become like family in this heaven on earth location. Walt C.

“Danielle has a fabulous restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

The friends who I visited Nocelle with had been here before. We came 2 different nights- because when you stay in Nocelle, there are limited options.

The first night we had to wait a bit for a table- so you may actually want a reservation even at the top of the road here! After we were seated, Danielle surprised us with several different dishes- all of which were fabulous! The grilled vegetable platter should always be on every diner's plan. There was an eggplant Parmesan too, which was great. The mixed grill... Yummy!

The other night we "just" had pizza- and some of the best pizza from the whole 2 weeks in Italy!

A little of their own Lemoncello and an accordion concert for entertainment! This is the real Italy I came to see!

“Good food and wonderful view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We stayed at Nino's B&B in Nocelle - an excellent accommodation in a very unusual village. Built high on the mountainside, the village was built long before the age of the motor vehicle so comprises numerous narrow little alleys (and lots of steps) - a delightful place.
Although there is a good local bus service going down into Positano or a nearby village, planning where to have a nice evening meal (and drink) could have been a challenge. In reality it turned out to be a pleasure, thanks to the two excellent 'eateries' in the village.
Il Ristoro is situated on the edge of the village, within a few minutes walk of any B&B. Built on a terrace under a huge overhang in the cliff it offers a unique setting on a warm summer evening, with all tables providing a splendid view through the treas down to the sea and Positano below. After dark the lights along the coast add a fairy-light quality to the view. Focusing mainly on a wide variety of Pizzas the food is good. In addition there is a nightly 'specials board' of various meat dishes - all cooked on a BBQ style fire.
Service is very good. Danielle has a warm and friendly personality and provides a warm welcome to all backed up with friendly help in picking the table, view and menu choice to make your meal enjoyable.
We ate there 3 times and loved it.

“Nonna's secret recipes are delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Casa Lavinia in Nocelle for 3 nights. Nocelle is a tiny town at the end of the road above Positano (20-25mins drive). Nocelle is a no car zone & is also located at the end if the Footpath of the Gods. The pizzeria is the first (of 2) restaurant in town with great food & a view to die for. The restaurant is family run (same mama runs the only grocery store next door & their cousins run the other restaurant). The waitress Danielle is particularly friendly with a fair grasp of English. They do takeaway here too but are cash only. They are usually open until around 11pm. You can't go wrong in Nocelle!
