I could not recommend this restaurant more highly. Sometimes I am skeptical about very highly rated restaurants in trip advisor - but, man oh man does this restaurant deserve every accolade given to them. The room is lovely, linen napkins and tablecloths- calm, pleasant atmosphere. Excellent, knowledgable waiting staff. But the food is the star - every single bite we... More

When a local of 38 years says it's his favorite place for Italian food he wants lying. Hands down best Italian food in Positano. Highly recommend ravioli, pizza and zucchini appetizer. Surrounded by locals. Must dine

Besides the fantastic pizza we liked the ambience a lot. We will stay for another four nights in Positano and plan to return for another dinner.

Even the price was very affordable.If you go to the Amalfi coast and you don't eat here, you might as well not bother coming at all to one of the most beautiful regions on... More

We were recommended this wonderful restaurant by our driver. We had the pizza and calzone, as well as desert. Absolutely amazing. A bit out of town, but if you absolutely worth it. Great service, wonderful atmosphere, and delicious food. What else could you ask for!

Watching the chefs from the window of their creative laboratory, your mouth waters in anticipation. Our octopus appetizer was at a level of perfection we haven't seen since Peru. I... More

We had dinner tonight at La Taverna del Leone, and loved every dish. We had a beef bolognese, lobster ravioli, and guinea fowl, and everyone was pleased. From the tasty amuse bouche, to the delicious desserts (cheese cake and a chocolate mousse cake that was fantastic!), we were very pleased with the service and the food. Other diners were locals,...

The restaurant offered free shuttle service to and from the B & B we were staying at. A classy place with reasonable prices. Nice menu. Good wine list. Service was very good. Open kitchen allows diners to see the food preparation. Highly recommend!
