Recommended by Positano Tony Taxi as the best restaurant in Positano and a must try. Tony was not wrong. The food and drinks, ambience and elegance of this restaurant kept us going back several times. We enjoyed lunch there more than once and also dinner. Can only say don't miss it. It is located in the city center downstairs from... More

We have been to Max many times during our visits to Positano. We never feel disappointed. The quality of the food, the preparation and presentation are all outstanding. we ate there twice during this trip and will miss Max until we return next year. Max is a restaurant not to be missed when visiting Positano.

Best Dinner we had in Positano! Friendlly staff and great wine. My suggestion is have dinner at the begining of your stay so you can go again during the stay. Delicious!!

Had supper here on an impulse, good welcome and service. The food was excellent and the wine waiter very good, being end of season, he did not have the bottle I selected (€30) but offered another similar but older from the list (€45) at the same price. Nice touch and makes you feel they care about service. Good place that... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a recommendation from our hotel. This place is fantastic. There is no ocean view but the place is filled with artwork and their outdoor space is lovely. The food is delicious! The wine menu is extensive and they have great selections. They have a full menu but then they also feature specials.... More

The local lobster was mushy and scarce The side "mixed vegetables" were pickles???, mushy stuffed eggplant that seemed to have been the remains from some one else's plate and the fried zucchini??? I don't eat fried food but they assured me it was a wonderful side??? The sine guy had no interest in what I really wanted just pushed it... More

Positano is crazy busy in the season, especially close to the sea, and this is a quiet respite. It's like eating in a combination art gallery and antique shop. The menu choices are so good it makes it hard to have just one meal there. My pasta with shrimp was so good I refused to share with anyone else!
