Our family of 5 had dinner at Donna Rosa on August 10, 2017 and it was far and away the best dinner that we had during our week in Positano. Excellent food, outstanding staff/service and an atmosphere that was well beyond our expectations. While I...More

Visited twice as really liked the place. Authentic Italian. Had beautiful pasta one night served on lovely pasta bowls. The place is a family run restaurant and it's very friendly. Really enjoyed coming here.

We visited here due to a recommendation in our guide book. One of Jamie Oliver's favourite restaurants apparently. Backed up with photos in the restaurant. If you book in advance you can get picked up and dropped off as the restaurant is not around the...More

A popular dinner option for tourists with professional service which didn't lose the "family dining" feel. The food was good, freshly prepared but probably fell short of the rave reviews and some fantastic other establishments we had visited on our way through Italy on this...More

I would suggest a reservation for sure. It a very small quaint little restaurant. They also do pick ups from some of the hotels

Of course, there are lovely spaghetti dishes without any fish/seafood in it. The menu changes routinely but I'm sure you'll find something that'll fit
