Restaurants in Positano
With fresh seafood and traditional Italian cuisine on the menus, diners will delight with the restaurants in Positano. From daily catches to more traditional Italian fare, the food found at these eateries is some of the worlds best.
Chez Black, a lively high-end locale that boasts a client list of world’s dignitaries and celebrities, is one of the best restaurants in Positano. Try the traditional Zuppa di Pesce, a thick fish soup that’s famous in the region, or Spaghetti con Ricci di Mare (spaghetti with sea urchin) for local flare. For the exclusive experience, check out La Conca del Sogno. Built into an abandoned stone quarry on the side of a cliff, this restaurant is only accessible by boat and is a premier dining experience to place on your list of Positano restaurants.
For more casual – but just as delicious – dining, try La Cambusa, which means “Galley” and is located right near the port, beneath the shadow of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta. Outdoor seating is a must and portions here are large so bring your appetite. For a more modern flair, Next 2 is your destination and the only Michelin-graded restaurant in Positano.
The namesake restaurant of Hotel Lo Scoglio da Tommaso, this family-owned trattoria serves locally inspired Mediterranean fare amid panoramic views of Nerano Bay.
Located up a winding, stepped alleyway, the pizzeria is easy to miss; patrons often get lost looking it or stumble upon it while looking for something else.
The beachfront restaurant serves up delicious linguine alle vongole.
Positano’s most stylish bar and restaurant serves freshly made, regionally sourced dishes—like fried ravioli with ricotta and mozzarella on a bed of fresh tomatoes—in a slick interior with floor cushions and a softly lit courtyard.
Family-owned for more than 40 years, this beachfront restaurant is little more than a wooden terrace set in a secluded cove on the Amalfi Coast.
The island’s only Michelin-starred restaurant is in the Capri Palace Hotel. Dine on raw red shrimp with asparagus and apple salad followed by cuttlefish-ink ravioli.
After a day sizzling in the Positano sun, there’s nothing better than taking a 20-minute ride up to the mountain hamlet of Montepertuso for the cool breezes and the refined, inventive cooking of the Villani sisters.
Built in a former stone quarry, this family-owned restaurant has an outdoor terrace that juts out over the Gulf of Salerno, providing views of the surrounding cliffs and the yachts floating on the water below.
Each morning, the chefs of La Cambusa purchase fresh fish and seafood from local fishermen and turn them into dishes like octopus salad, spaghetti with sautéed mussels, and linguini with lobster.
Though the seafood is fresh and expertly prepared and the pizzas from the brick oven are quite good, you don’t really come here for the fairly standard cuisine.
