My husband and myself were back in Positano again the past August, and what can I say Max's is one of the best restaurants in town! We make it a point to set foot in this beautiful antique rich restaurant at least 2-3 times during the time we stay there. If you're a wine drinker the list is impeccable, if... More

Recommended by Positano Tony Taxi as the best restaurant in Positano and a must try. Tony was not wrong. The food and drinks, ambience and elegance of this restaurant kept us going back several times. We enjoyed lunch there more than once and also dinner. Can only say don't miss it. It is located in the city center downstairs from... More

We have been to Max many times during our visits to Positano. We never feel disappointed. The quality of the food, the preparation and presentation are all outstanding. we ate there twice during this trip and will miss Max until we return next year. Max is a restaurant not to be missed when visiting Positano.

Best Dinner we had in Positano! Friendlly staff and great wine. My suggestion is have dinner at the begining of your stay so you can go again during the stay. Delicious!!

Had supper here on an impulse, good welcome and service. The food was excellent and the wine waiter very good, being end of season, he did not have the bottle I selected (€30) but offered another similar but older from the list (€45) at the same price. Nice touch and makes you feel they care about service. Good place that... More
