“Lunch In Positano”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

We chose the restaurant by walking around Positano and wanting a place to sit. We sat outside and although tourists were strolling all around us we didn't feel crowded. Our waiter was so nice and accommodating. Our table was a bit unsteady so he put something under one of the legs to keep it from tilting. I ordered Bruschetta with mozzarella and tomatoes for a starter not knowing we were getting a complimentary bruschetta. All was delicious, but that mozzarella was thee best I had in Italy! My husband had pasta with porcini mushrooms and sausage. That was one of my favorite pastas of our trip. I had fried seafood which was very good.

“Beautiful Views at La Cambusa!”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We visited La Cambusa to see our family friend, Johnny, who my in-laws have known since their honeymoon 30 years ago! He is warm, loving, and a great server. We had a great table, where we watched the sunset on gorgeous Positano. The food was ordered by Johnny, and he made great picks!! Our meals were delicious! We will definitely return to see and dine on our next adventure to Italy!

“Excellent food, good view, friendly staff, A+”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We decided to try La Cambusa after reading the tripadvisor reviews online. In search of a more home style (less fine dining) experience, La Cambusa fit the bill perfectly. All pasta dishes had unique flavor profiles in the sauces, great homemade pasta al dente, calamari was tender and crispy, squash blossoms were fried perfectly with the right amount of cheese, and beer was cold. As a second dish we had the fried anchovies and they were absolutely delicious. Finally the homemade lemon cake was very good too. It wasn't overly sweet like typical restaurant desserts. Subtle and still very satisfying.

“Good food, good view, good location”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

This restaurant was recommended by a local. She recommended eating seafood at the bottom of the mountain. Amidst the more touristy section of Positano sits La Cambusa. You can't miss it. We sat outside and had a wonderful meal. We made sure we had the caprese salad with buffalo mozzarella- yum! The server was very nice as well.
