  • Chez Black: Great beach location, service and food!

    by dlchilders Written Jul 31, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have been to Positano 8 times and going again this September. This is always the first place I go to for dinner. It's on the beach. Staff has been there forever. Last September one of the waiters recognized me and brought me over a heart-shaped focaccia (spell)? It was yummy and so wonderful that he did this for me. Those Italian men....look out they are always flirting! ha ha!! The spaghetti w/mussels are great. Also had steak there one night and that was good too. It's just a great spot in Positano that must be tried! Sometimes more than once if youre there for awhile too!

    Favorite Dish: Spaghetti - tomato and basil, or with mussells. Yummy!!

    Ristorante Savino: Beautiful Setting and Great Wine

    by TRimer Updated Jun 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beach View

    Beautiful atmosphere and attentive service make for a wonderful, relaxing dining experience. This is one of the hotels where they filmed the movie "Only You" with Marissa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.

    On the shores of the Tiranean Sea, below the steeply rising dwellings of Positano, is the Hotel Covo dei Saraceni, a former fisherman's house whose name "Covo of the Saracens" is a reminder of the marauding pirates who once tormented Italy's Amalfi Coast.

    Favorite Dish: Everything was wonderful. Lots of fresh ingredients - cheese, pasta, seafood. They have a spectacular wine list.

    Pizzaria Below the Steps of the Amalfi Duomo: Pizza in the Piazza

    by TRimer Updated Feb 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pizzaria on the Left

    In the Piazza Duomo in Amalfi there are several restaurants serving different varieties of pizza. We ate at the one just to the left of the steps. Cannot remember the name. I am sure that they are all good.

    Buca di Bacco: Right On the Beach

    by TRimer Updated Feb 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like Chez Black, this is a place that appears in all the guide books.

    Favorite Dish: We were not impressed with the food here. However, the bar/restaurant serves- at all hours, mind you-- plates of marinated anchovies, toasted bread with toppings and arancini di riso, a rice treat. Good to know when you are absolutely starving.

    Ristorante La Cambusa: Good Seafood

    by TRimer Updated Feb 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inside La Cambusa

    This is a very popular restuarant. We met lots of other Americans here- which can or cannot be a good thing. The tables are very close together which make interacting with other customers a definate option. Also, the restaurant was centrally located with nice views of the beach.

    La Cambusa has been owned by Luigi and Baldo for over 40 years. Luigi can often be found in the restaurant chatting with customers.

    Favorite Dish: Ask for my favorite waiter- Raphael, if he has not permanently moved to Australia.

    This is the place to order seafood. The house specialty is linguine with mussels.

    Open every day except Wednesdays and for 3 weeks in January.

    Delikatessen: Good eats to take away

    by ct-bound Updated Dec 30, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just up the pathway from the main Beach in Positano, there is a 'grocery store' up a set of stairs, where you can buy canned goods, cereal and fruit etc.

    What most tourists didn't seem to know was that if you went to the back of the store at the deli counter, you could get fresh sandwiches made to go. They will take a whole loaf of fresh crusty bread and stuff it with whatever meat (or whatever) you want, layer it with cheese, then top it with anything from their selection of pickled mushrooms, grilled eggplant, stuffed peppers, olives (with pits, beware!), or whatever you want.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite was the Proscuitto ham (local specialty) with mozzarella (they cut it almost 1/2 inch thick), olives (all types) and sundried tomatoes. Mmmm.

    Pizza deals!

    by ct-bound Updated Dec 27, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Down on the beach (Spaggia Grande), there is a restaurant that specializes in take-away pizzas. The prices there were very very inexpensive, especially if you get whatever the special of the day is (for example, they will give you 2 for the price of 1), only if you take it away.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza Funghi

    Santa Caterina: Wonderful food and view (for less $)

    by ct-bound Written Dec 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant view at night

    With no official advertising, only a handwritten whiteboard, only in Italian, we knew we had to try it. Notably, the prices here were even a couple Euros less per dish than everywhere else in Positano.

    The Restaurant is on a huge patio, overlooking the town and the ocean and the view at night is breathtaking. You can even hear the waves breaking on the beach below while you enjoy your dinner.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite was the pasta Puttanesca. With whole olives and the freshest of ingredients ('Grandpa' who runs the place and does the cooking picked the herbs fresh off the plants while he was making it), it was the best meal I had while in Italy.

    I also highly recommend the house wine, which I suspect the proprietor makes himself in the basement, since our bottle said 'Blanco', yet it was a red wine. However, it was great!

  • Il Tartagliata: great grilled meats, amazing view!

    by stuartb Updated Jul 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant has a free van service which picks up its diners in front of the pharmacy in Positano and delivers you high up iinto the town of Monte Pertuso about twenty minutes away. Views from the restaurant are amazing. Our wonderful young host/server Peppino was the owner/chef's son. When he heard we were sent there by an old friend, he literally grabbed the menu's from our hands and proceeded to deliver to us pitchers filled with delicious local red and white wines, his own personally designed menu of huge platters filled with delicious appetizers, then all different samplings of pastas, then a huge platter filled with assorted grilled meats and fish, then a wonderful platter of deserts, then an after dinner appertif. All in all a terrific and highly romantic feast for the senses!

    Favorite Dish: The assortments of pastas, grilled meats and fish were both interestingly prepared and delicious.

    Caffe Positano: Gorgeous view with delicious food

    by HELEN Written Jul 9, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Caffe Positano

    The restaurant is at the top of the hill overlooking the the beautiful town and the beach. There's seating inside as well as out side, but there's nothing better than enjoying a delicious meal while looking over a gorgeous view of Positano. Caffe Positano was recommended to us by our hotel owner.

    Favorite Dish: The menu has a lot of variety. Prosciutto and Mellon melts in your mouth, and Spaghetti with Clams was very good. Their homemade tiramisu was to die for. They even ran out of it towards the end of the night.

    This is one of the restaurants on the boardwalk. Great place to take a break from the sun, sit in the shade on the outside patio and people watch while enjoying some good italian food. Prices are reasonable and the menu has a lot of variety.

    Oops... Well, I'll tell you where it is.: Good food....

    We ate at this little place, and the food was great. We had some wine, and we were right on the porch looking at the water, and it was great. If you walk down the street that goes to the water, the restaurant is right off to your left, once you're at the water. It's a white building, and you'll see tables and people eating. It was really good.

    The dining room at Hotel Palazzo Murat: Hotel Palazzo Murat

    The dining room at Hotel Palazzo Murat

    The dining room at Hotel Palazzo Murat is entirely outdoors, surrounded by trees. It is gorgeous! If you're going to have an elegant, special night out while you're in Positano, this is the place to dine. It's expensive, but the atmosphere is so gorgeous, the food so delicious and the service so attentive that the experience is worth every penny.

    Favorite Dish: We had a five course meal that included salad, ravioli, John Dory (whitefish) fillet, gelato, cake, and limoncello. It was all really delicious!

    Lo Guarracino: Great food, wonderful view at Lo Guarracino.

    by Erin74 Updated Oct 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Eating dinner at Lo Guarracino

    Lo Guarracino is a wonderful, unpretentious restaurant tucked away into the mountainside of Positano and overlooking the ocean. It's not as crowded as the restaurants down on the beach, but the views are just as wonderful and the food is even better. This was the best meal we had while in Positano.

    Favorite Dish: The wine is served in earthenware carafes. Order lots of it. I had a wonderful spinach and cheese ravioli dish and the bruschetta was very tasty. My friends enjoyed the lasagna and pasta l'arrabiata.
