We stopped in for lunch and watched the crowds from a table above. Lunch was risotto with truffles, scallops with a white bean purée and a great glasss of wine. So good! Husband had the meatballs. He loved them! Great food.

The food, service, and atmosphere at Buca di Bacco were wonderful. We enjoyed a delicious dinner overlooking the Sea at the end of a beautiful day in Positano.

We came here on the recommendation of a friend. The food was yummy. The mussels dish was an enormous portion that we could have shared between two. The highlight is the beach view. Great place to people watch.

Walked in without a booking - although does get busy. Good location on Positano beach front. Food was tasty - mid range fare. Easy relaxed dinner.

This was one of the pricier meals we had in our 2-week trip all around Italy, but it was a memorable meal. We sat on the rooftop terrace and enjoyed the most beautiful sunset in the most beautiful setting. Excellent house wine, excellent food and...More
