I wrote down some restaurant names that seemed to be worth exploring in Positano and happened to come across Wine Dark House in the very first day. It boasts a very nice shady patio so we didn't even think twice. The food is fresh and perfectly prepared, everything we ordered was delicious. Great choice of wine as well, the owner, although obviously very busy, takes the time to explain what are the characteristics of different wines and allows you to try different ones before you order - I wish this concept were more widespread. A 5-star lunch!

This restaurant serves delicious Italian dishes with a varied menu which should please everyone.
They do offer a hamburger selection, but do yourself a favour and try something more adventurous. The first night we had calamari, octopus, eggplant and spaghetti with meatballs.

We wandered into this restaurant our first night in Positano and were blown away. The BEST risotto in the world! The shell fish in it, was sweet, and fresh, and perfect. The meat and cheeses antipasta was amazing as well. In fact, we went back the very next day and ordered the same thing it was SO GOOD! The desert and wine was delicious as well. The waitor was amazing, and so sweet and we love him! Great prices too. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

The owner sat us right away.We wanted to buy a bottle of local wine for dinner. He told us that he would like to bring over some tastes first so we would get what we liked. We found that to be very helpful since otherwise we would have been only taking our chances. We took our time with dinner and were never bothered by the staff. When you did want something though, that were right there.The food for the three of us was all great.

The restaurant was closed a few days during our stay in Positano, but we tried one more time and where thrilled to find it open. After weeks of Peroni, it was nice to enjoy London Pride on tap with a burger. Apparently the local teenagers like the fries on the burger and slather it with a ketchup/mayo combo. So when in... Positano. Yum. The service was excellent as was the location near the beach.
