Our first meal at Positano - was a very memorable one. The sea food was tasty andn fresh (had a fish stuffed with mozzerella) . The lemon based desserts were also tasty and the view was to die for!

My wife and I stayed just down the street from this restaurant and it was recommended by our tour guide. We ate there 2 times during our 3 day visit. Great location and great food.

Most of the restaurants in Positano are "good" but not "great," and definitively overpriced. That being said, the ricotta and spinach ravioli at Caffe Positano were fantastic. Otherwise, everything is good. Funghi fettucine is good, the mixed salad is good, service is "pretty good." Not the worse nor best you can do in Positano.

Seriously - I thought here was something addictive in it. The taste was subtle and understated but absolutely mesmerizing. Like everything Italian - not overdone. Just wholesome real food. I miss it.

The food is delicious. The service? Well, be patient, because it's a little haphazard. It helps to order wine, so you're enjoying the scenery until your food comes. You pay a bit more than you would in other restaurants further up the hill, but this one comes with a view that's pretty spectacular. Worth the stop.

My husband had been eyeing this spot for a while we were staying in Positano, so we finally tried it. It's a little pricy but it had breathtaking views and super fresh seafood. My husband got seafood and I got pasta, should have gotten the seafood cause it was heavenly. My husband has been trying to find a dish like... More

This restaurant was suggested by our hotel and was excellent. We had the gnocchi and Alfredo pasta, delicious. They picked us up which is a great plus when you are in Positano!

A late afternoon lunch with requisite wine was delicious. The view, as are most in Positano, was exquisite. The food arrived in a timely manner, the waiter so professional, and the relaxed atmosphere made it one if many wonderful afternoons in this beautiful town.
