Description: Our chef’s creations offer a delicious slice of Campania’s history. The simplicity and straightforwardness of his dishes are the testimony to the quality and authenticity of the ingredients selected. From home-smoked meats and fish carpaccio to mouthwatering buffalo mozzarella and local ricotta seasoned with basil. The pasta is made fresh and dressed with the chef’s most creative and tempting combinations of seafood and the season’s finest selection of colorful, flavorful vegetables, covering the vast assortment of culinary delights in the Mediterranean tradition. The menu includes many vegetarian and gluten free options. Don't miss our "pizza nights", baked in a wooden-oven twice per week and accompanied by live music and a friendly atmosphere. The views from the terrace will not make you want to leave.

Our purpose of staying in Positano was to get married, so we were here for two weeks and had tried a number of restaurants with a view to selecting one for our reception after our wedding. We decided to try Il Tridente after noticing the photos outside of hotel Poseidon and the views looked spectacular. We had starters, main course and desserts with wine and everything was fabulous, it could not be faulted. We approached the head waiter Fabio with the request of having our wedding reception here, straight away he put this in motion for us. We were invited the following evening to try a taster menu where we could consider what we would like on the day. The choices we were given were endless!! Fabio was always on hand to help us with any questions. We decided on a 7 course menu (traditional in Italy) starting with appetisers (which were delicious), then smoked sea bass fillet with fennel and citrus salad, risotto with lemon parsley and fried squid, ravioli stuffed with provolone cheese and eggplant with cream of cherry tomatoes and crispy bacon, pezzogna fish served with sauteed vegetables with marjoram, barded beef tenderloin with wine served with potato puff pastry and pecorino cheese, almond profiteroles with ice cream and coffee sauce. Sound delicious?? It was absolutely amazing!! Every course was so good you think that it could not be topped by the next but it was! The chef is a genius! And following all of this there was wedding cake and champagne.
With the amazing food and the spectacular views it was everything that we could have hoped for. What made it even more special was Fabio, he is an absolute professional but so friendly and welcoming as well. He really did look after us and he made our day more special! Samer the customer relations manager ensured that everything was arranged for us so we did not have anything to worry about, for which we are very grateful.
To summarise, amazing food, great location, brilliant service, I would definately recommend Il Tridente for any occasion.

We had dinner here, precede by drinks, on the terrace of Hotel Poseidon. It has been out favourite spot for a relaxed atmosphere with greatest views of Positano and the Mediterranean. We started Witz shrimp salad, prepared deliciosly with candied lemon slices followed by penne con Zucchini, and topped by Filet of Rombo, the local flounder, with olives. Accompanied by fine Fiano du Campania, we had a great evening. Wunderbar! We'll be back soon.

My family and i decided to spend a day in Positano. While strolling the long winding road, I remembered a friend of mine mentioning how beautiful the terrace of HOtel Poseidon is so I thought of having a drink there, once we arrived upstairs we couldn't but notice the buffet that had just been set for the lunch hour with a breathtaking view of Positano as a background. the buffet of "il Tridente" restaurant was characterized with a rich Neapolitan specialties like eggplant Parmesan, marinated anchovies, grilled vegetables, buffalo mozzarell and so much more.....soon enough instead of only having a drink there we found ourselves seated in this cozy and elegant dining hall, we started with the buffet and then ordered some pasta....one word comes to mind: superb. I also had the chance to get to know the chef's name which was Sorrentino. I also had a look at the dinner menu that also included the specials of the day and I have to say it all looked so promising and absolutely delicious. All and all it was a great culinary experience and we'll definitely be back.
