Ristorante Donna Rosa

Map
97-99 Via Montepertuso, Positano, Amalfi Coast 84017, Italy

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. This is everybody’s favorite secret countryside trattoria, removed from the hustle and crowds of the resort towns. Rosida presides over the dining room, a small, elegantly homey room with a piano in the corner. In the open kitchen to one side, her sister Erika holds court, assisted by the best secret weapon available to an Italian cook: her own mother, Mamma Raffaella. Mother and daughter whip up homemade-pasta dishes like caramelle di aragosta, tiny tortellini stuffed with lobster, using the freshest of ingredients. In nice weather, if you book ahead, you might snag one of the two tables on the small terrace to dine alfresco.
