I visited the Amalfi Coast in May 2013 and I was lucky enough to find 'La Limonella' in my search for accommodation at short notice. As I wanted to experience the life and culture and not just the impersonal convenience of a hotel, it was perfect.
As I travelled alone, it was wonderful to be staying somewhere that welcomed me as a family member. Although I don't speak Italian, I had no problem communicating and Gorgio's English was great. When ever I wanted anything I only had to ask and it was provided immediately. This included a lift into Positano if I missed the bus, which happens to be near enough to their doorstep. I found the busses easy to navigate my way around from Naples to the Amalfi coast and is a great mode of transport to get around.
A lovely clean, comfortable room with a gorgeous stone bathroom and I've got to mention the great shower as it is one of those little things that matter to me ... lol
A small private terrace with great views and the opportunity to cook outdoors using the fresh vegies from the garden if you choose to, but why cook when the restaurant is only steps away.
'La Tagliata' is the # 1 restaurant in Positano to experience fresh, tasty, authentic Italian food made from the heart, it is very busy at both lunch & dinner time. But the family will always find you a table. No menu is available, but I found that one wasn't needed. Everything I had was absolutely delicious. The fantastic food, amazing view, the happy, lively atmosphere and I must mention the great friendly service. Considering the restaurant has 2 levels and is mostly full, I was impressed at the level of service provided by the staff.
I was on the Amalfi coast for 3 weeks and had I known how wonderful 'La Limonella' was, I no doubt would have stayed longer. I did go back and visit Giorgia and the restaurant even when I was staying elsewhere, it was like visiting family that lived locally.
For the remainder of my stay I was in the top half of Positano which limited the views available. So I was ever so glad that I had stayed at 'La Limonella' which gave me access to extensive views of Positano from both my terrace and the restaurant, whilst still being convenient to transport to get around.
Grazie ! Grazie ! ... to Giorgia and the whole family. I'll be back ... ;)))
