Went to Positano last night with my brothers and sister and their wives and husband on a recommendation from a friend. We absolutely loved it. Authentic Italian with some fabulous food and a great atmosphere. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. Multo va bene!

What a summer we have had, it was delightful to sit outside and enjoy delicious perfectly served Italian food while next to you is an equally delightful Italian Bread Market Stall. Cannot imagine a more ideal Lunchtime.
