We spent 5 nights at this beautiful bed and breakfast and had a wonderful time. Pietro and his family really do welcome you as one of their own.
-We where served breakfast every morning which consisted of fresh pastries, yogurt, toast, cereal, coffee and juice.
-Any information or questions we had, they where glad to answer.
- rooms where clean and had a beautiful view of the ocean.
- Family restaurant situated below had delicious food, good service, and even live music on occasion.
- wifi was included, no ac but there was a very nice breeze so it was very comfortable.
- when you arrive you have 3 choices to get there.
1 taxi
2 bus (brings you steps away from the building)
3 walking (depending on how much luggage you have of course)
- great location. Close to restos, shopping, can take steps that take you down to the beach (good work out), and the views are spectacular.
- Only 3 rooms so it is very private and quiet.
If you visit Positano you should definitely reserve a room here.
We had a wonderful time and it would not have been the same without staying at dimora del podesta with Pietro!
Gratzie Pietro! from your friends from Montreal!!!!

Outstanding value and worthy of #1 on Tripadvisor. Pietro and his brothers have a great location with balcony views over the ocean below and the alfresco street scape below where you can watch a slice of Positano life.
It's wonderful people watching the street below with the family's Saraceno d'Oro restaurant and happy street musicians entertaining the al fresco diners.
The restaurant is also ranked highly on Tripadvisor for a very good reason - the food is delicious and cheaper than the overpriced cafes closer to the beach.
The honesty bar is wonderful and I can't imagine anyone not being honest in this family place which is so open and trusting.
Top marks Pietro - thanks for being so entertaining and guiding us to the right places.
We miss you already.

Our stay was amazing! Everyone treated us like family and spoiled us beyond belief. I could have moved in and never come home. Pietro and his family made sure every detail was taken care and the location was perfect, food was amazing! This is a must visit!

The quality of service and the level of care are unmatched and like we have never experienced before. We have lodged in a lot of nice places with great services (including in Positano) over the years. This was different. It was an immediate sensation of, "things are all good" from the time we got out of our cars to the moment we said goodbye.

We (12 of us) had just drove from Tuscany and after a long day, that type of welcome was exactly what we needed. Dinner at the family restaurant Saraceno D'Oro was very nice and a great value. The second night we started walking to explore a try a different restaurant. After awhile we all looked at each other and agreed to go back to the Saraceno D'Oro for a second time.

The rooms are very spacious, very clean and well kept. Pietro has implemented lots a nice touches and great ideas to make the place very welcoming. For example, the hundreds of magazines and books that we could take to the beach with us (as Pietro said, "the books like to go to the beach").

The price was super since we would have paid twice as much for such a lovely stay.

Thank you Pietro and the rest of your family. We will see you soon with another group of friends.

Pietro and his mom Sylvana were very accommodating. We had the triple room for my wife, daughter and me. Nice big suite with balcony and ocean view. Pietro brought us breakfast on the balcony every morning. He would give us suggestions for daily activities, and help on any questions we had. Great experience. Only negatives were the noise at night as it is above their family restaurant, although the World Cup soccer was on and the patrons were very enthusiastic! He also doesn't take credit cards and you have to pay cash- he is working on a credit card machine so that should change soon. Good value and I would recommend staying here.

We stayed a total of 3 days and 2 nights in Dimora del Podesta B&B, and the only complaint I have is that we didn't stay longer!! We loved Pietro and his mom, Mama Pietro we called her. they were very accomodating and hospitable hosts. felt like we were visiting our own italian family. Pietro even gave us pointers which beaches to visit during our stay to avoid tourist fees. Also prepared italian breakfast for us every morning out in our room balcony. we stayed in the corner room to the far right and it was lovely. Also, we ate at their family restaurant downstairs, didn't have their pizza, but their pasta and sea bass grill were delicious. Positano is a beautiful place especially with a significant other, and staying in this B&B, made it even more romantic because it felt like we were locals even for a short time. very nice location and a short walk into the shops and beaches.

Room Tip: choose corner room. sorry no photos they are on my phone, but guaranteed the place is very antique l...

Italy is a country of family businesses and Dimora Del Podesta is a perfect example. We were greeted by Silvano the mother when we arrived from Naples and were looked after each morning by Pietro, the son who manages the B&B. Pietro is absolutely lovely and a fantastic host. He served a beautiful breakfast each morning on our balcony with fresh delicious coffee, amazing hot croissants and much more. Pietro could not have been more helpful or more kind. We spend 3 nights and could not have been happier. Two of our three nights we ate at the family restaurant downstairs where Pietro's brother Daniel works as well as his father. The food and the service were really excellent. We stayed in the room called La Musica which in my opinion is the nicest of the rooms as it has a large couch and area to relax. However all of the rooms were nice and all have great views of the ocean. The B&B is a great value by Positano standards and you will be very happy indeed if you manage to get the opportunity to be guests of the family at Dimora del Podesta

Room Tip: I thought "Musica" was the nicest of the rooms
