“Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We visited La Tagliata after reading reviews about how nice it was and we weren't disappointed! The restaurant is located at the top of Positano so the views are amazing and the food was equally good. For 35 euros each we were treated to four delicious courses (antipasti, pasta, meat and dessert), a bottle of home-made wine and water. All the food was freshly made and each course was as delightful as the next. Definitely worth the slightly scary minibus ride to get there!

“Ceoliac friendly and delicious”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

We ate at La Tagliata after a recommendation from our driver and hotel. This was the best meal of our entire holiday. All the food is fresh and largely grown in the restaurant garden (I also caught a glimpse of a few chickens). The view is spectacular, I would recommend arriving early to enjoy the sunset.

There is no menu so no hassle in decision making, plenty of variety and more food then you could possibly finish. Eating gluten free was easy "Io sono celiaco" on arrival was treated with "no problem" and amongst the other beautiful naturally gluten free dishes I was treated to the best ravioli I have ever had (yes including my pre diagnosis gluten filled days). I would love to go back to Italy just to eat here.

“"It's Mamma's Fault!"”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Well, thank you Mamma is all I have to say!
This restaurant was recommended by our guide as well as by our hotel so we made a reservation (which I highly recommend). They have a bus that comes down the mountain to pick you up in downtown Positano. The bus driver can make this drive in his sleep but it is still harrowing to go up that mountain on a narrow road in the pitch dark of the night!
When we arrived, our group couldn't believe that we were still on earth because this place must be what heaven looks like - and we are all hoping we can get food like this in heaven too!
Pacing yourself is the key to an enjoyable dining experience at this unique restaurant. The food is all grown locally and cooked by "Mamma" and her crew. The local wine served with the meals was perfect too. Her son delivered each huge multi-choice course and when the 4th course came out with 5 different kinds of meats we all sighed. He must have seen the looks on our faces, "how in the world can we eat another bite?" On que he smiled and sweetly replied, "It's Mamma's fault." We couldn't wait to meet Momma! After the dessert course Momma came out to greet each table. She doesn't speak much English but she smiles and takes her accolades with grace.
This is an amazing "foodie" experience and one we will enjoy for many years as we remember "Momma."
Tip: Go to the 7:30 seating so you can see the sun go down over the mountain and make sure you get a seat in the upper area of the restaurant.

“Amazing meal, entertainment and value!!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We have never posted a review on trip advisor, probably because we have never felt so passionate about an experience!! This place is a must go to if you are in Positano!! Firstly they pick you up at your hotel and return you for free and it's a beautiful drive up into the mountains of positano. Once you arrive the family that owns and operates the family business greets you with the warmest, kindest welcome. Then the tables- probably the best views in all of positano!! Beautiful. But then the food comes- briscetta, antipasto, then another course, then another course, homemade pasta!! Then Amazing beef, chicken. The dessert was all homemade and was the tastiest!! Mama was in the kitchen cooking, papa assisted and their adult son running the tables with other staff. The whole time they bring you bottles (yes more than one) of endless wine, sparkling water bottles and a glass of their homemade limoncello at the end of the meal. Several courses of the most tasty food, all homemade, and to top it all off we were there on a Tuesday night which is music night and a woman sang traditional italian songs with music and audience participation. It was like a huge italian private party with family and the best food you can imagine. And the bill- a price fix menu of just 35 European person. What an amazing deal. You get so much for such a small cost. Mama, Vincenzo, papa, all so sweet!! We highly recommend this place!! Natalie
