“This restaurant should have a much higher rating”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We arrived in Positano to stay at Hotel Poseidon in the late afternoon without meal plans. So we decided to just eat in the hotel. Turns out, it was much more refined meal than we had expected. The setting is excellent. The menu is not expansive, but had a good choice for our kids as well as us. The food was prepared very well - the pizza was exceptional. We will definitely eat here again when we stay next in Positano.

“Great position, good food”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

The restaurant is on the roof terrace looking over the town of Positano and the bay beyond, so a stunning view and a beautiful location. Part of the Poseidon hotel, the service is excellent. Food good, good wines recommended by waiter.

“delicious ~ SENSATIONAL atmosphere”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Good food, beautiful setting , excellent service.

Dinner at Il Tridente is why to visit Positano. Wines were also excellent. The bar is immediately inviting with a drawing room to the side with a welcoming fireplace should you visit out of season. A fantastic place to enjoy a long drink and enjoy the sumptuous views of the Amalfi coast.

“Fantastic atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

It is very romantic, the view and the lights make for an enchanting evening. It is not too expensive and there is a quiet live music as well.

“First class!!”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

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.
