“Hidden Gem in Positano!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We went here for a dinner during our honeymoon based on TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed! The owner seated us in their quiet courtyard area, which is just below the cathedral though you'd never know it since it's so peaceful and shady. We were given plenty of time to make our choices, but ultimately let the waitstaff/owner recommend what we should order - and they did not disappoint! We had a cianghale with fresh fettucine (house made, it seemed) and another pasta with wonderful tender white fish and a tomato sauce. Great wine, a limoncello, and some bread to mop up the leftover sauce - va bene! Definitely worth seeking this place out for a quiet dinner.

“Food, wine, service ottimo !!! (Excellent)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

My wife and I found this little cafe/ restaurant while out walking one day, it,s located just off Piazza Flavio Gioia, it was also later recommended to us by some other regular hotel guests that night. The food is wonderful, the Stuffed rolled veal or the Egg Plant parmigiana is fantastic and I can recommend a bottle of the local Bianco. I had the hot heart chocolate cake for dessert which was probably not necessary but if your on vacation why worry I say... The service is very good with a relaxed atmosphere and all at a very reasonable price. We are most definitely going back.

“Loved this little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

My husband and I stopped in for our first meal at Wine-Dark House. Manuel was great and attentive. Not only was the service fantastic, the food delicious, but Manuel invited us to meet him out on the town later. The staff are incredibly friendly and we felt so comfortable that we came back multiple times. Perfect for a small meal, a nice dinner on the patio or drinks and laughter.
