Description: The Mediterraneo is a little family run restaurant where we will take care of our guests in a nice, romantic but unformal atmosphere. We try to keep traditional flavors and recepies as first of all we do like eating.Using fresh seasonal products, we like to cook fish specialties, vegetables and "al dente" home-made pasta, the same way our grandmas used to.The right location for pre-wedding lunch.It's mostly a nice place where you can sit, eat and drink well, discussing of art or listening to good napolitan live music. Enzo always organises art exibitions, books presentation, wine tastings and music evenings.

“worth eating here.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This was a pleasant experience with good quality food and good service. Traditional fare of predominantly pasta or fish. There was also a guitarist singing traditional Italian songs…and handing out tambourines to customers to play along... despite our initial apprehension, this added to the evening! We would go back!

“Keep walking and don't stop”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

During our 4 night stay in Positano we had noticed this place during a walk and we thought we could have dinner there.

The staff was extremely unpleasant, the waiters only smiled and laughed with 3 young girls ignoring completely the other customers. The staff also stopped just in front of the TV set for a while, watching football not paying attention to the fact that the customers couldn't watch the football.

When we have been served the wine, I tasted it and it was undrinkable, and when I said that to the waiter, he didn't say anything, he took the wine away without replacing it, without asking if we wanted something else.

The portions served were very small for a very high price: 16 Euros for a child portion of pastas, the pastas were not al dente but nearly row.

When the owner/manager finally came to inquire if we enjoyed our meal, we complained and he didn't charge for the meals. But as we were still hungry (and I am a slim woman, I don't eat that much), we went a little further up for a dessert and a glass of Preseco.

“Very friendly restaurant”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We were three couples who stayed in Positano for a week and on our first night our landlord Matteo recommended Mediterraneo and made a reservation for us. The staff were all very friendly and made us feel at home. The meal turned into more of an experience than a dinner and we ended up eating there 2 more nights during our stay. On the second night there we were there we were entertained by Pietro who we learned also spends several months of the year in Phoenix. The food was very good but the atmosphere was even better and brought us back for more.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

I cannot recommend Mediterraneo based on other great places we found in Positano. Service was good, salad was average, main dishes were salty or bland

“Good food, fun service and lively atmosphere”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Having arrived in the rain and thunder late at night we visited the Meditteraneo as it was the closest to our hotel (Punta Regina). Have to say, we couldn't fault it. Our meal started with a complementary Prosecco (always a winner with me) and was followed by fresh, well cooked and lovely tasting food. The prawns were delicious and the wine reasonably priced. There was a great atmosphere in this busy restaurant and would have had no issue re-visiting if time had allowed.
