Went explore Positano for the day while down in Amalfi. Breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. Stopped in to Buca for dinner. Another couple walked in at the same time and got seated at the last table by the water. We were seated right next to them (more on that later). Ordered up some pasta and a nice bottle of Chianti...

This place is great! A wide variety to pick from. We ate here 3 times during our trip. The view of the coast is amazing, especially at night.

This restaurant is located in the Hotel with the same name. It has a great location in front of the sea. We ordered a bottle of white wine, which was recommended by our waiter (Fia Gre 2015 Campania Bianco). It went well with the dishes that we asked. I ordered the zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella. They were good but... More

Had pizza and it was good. After dinner waiter brought two shots of limonchello on the house. We had never tried it and liked it. When i got the bill i noticed they had charged me for them. So be aware.

It may be a long walk down to the sea in Positano, but once there you will be met with the charm and grace of the beautiful azure ocean. Situated on the beach is Buca di Bacco, wonderful restaurant. Amazing views, service was good, food was good and the location was outstanding!!

Our first night in Positano we ate here because it was attached to our hotel and offered 10% off. We were tired and it was close. But the service and food knocked our socks off. I had grilled sea bass with mashed potatoes and asparagus that was out of this world delicious!! The waiter suggested a wonderful bottle of white... More

Beautiful beach/mountain view when we dined here for lunch. Food was good, service too. A bit expensive for what we ordered, but being in a resort town, not unexpected.

We ate here because we were staying at the hotel, so we were unsure of what to expect. The restaurant absolutely blew us away. We knew the view was going to be spectacular (the tables against the railing were full, so they sat us on the terrace upstairs, which was private, quiet and had even better views!) but we had...
