Every vacation to Italy surely has 1 unforgettable food experience. For me this was it, and this is coming from someone who spends a lot of time energy picking every restaurant on every night of his vacation. This was an experience I will never forget for the rest of my life. It was the warm family atmosphere, the intimate dining room with an open kitchen, the amazingly personal service, and the food...a perfect balance btwn traditional and modern styles. You will not regret the walk up the hill for this gem!

This place was so good that after our first dinner, we cancelled plans the next day and came back. We wanted to try the rest of the menu. The steak was cooked to perfection, the pasta and caprese was unique. There is lots of great food in Positano, but this restaurant has a unique take on each dish. We loved the creativity of the food and decor. It looks like they thought through every detail from the lights, quotes on the wall, the unique cappuccino cups. The entire staff is so friendly and kind. I would recommend you make a reservation before you go.

Positano's newest offering is a nice departure from the standard colored ceramics you see in restaurants about town. The space is modern with a few vintage touches, and even the flatware and stemware emits a unique and elegant air.

It's not surprising then that Chef Raffra's food fits the sleek profile. The dishes are prepared in an immaculate open kitchen with a huge window where you can watch all of the action. The food is prepared with simple ingredients to a very high quality. The flavor profiles are thoughtful but not overworked, instead making all of the ingredients sing. And Chef Raffra knows how to do desserts. This is an area I've found that lets many restaurants down in Positano, but at Casa Mele, you can count on beautiful dolci that almost look like works of art. The delizia al limone (my favorite local dessert) was light and flavorful. One of the best I've had! Chef Raffra's staff, Alberto and Giovanni, make sure you are cared for and treated well.

If you're looking for something different in Positano with great food and atmosphere - that really looks like it could fit in any metropolitan European city - Casa Mele should be the top of your list!

I literally just got back from dinner @ casa mele and couldn't wait to write a review- have never met friendlier people the staff are absaloutly amazing- giovanni & Alberto were our waiters and couldn't speak highly enough of both of them, they went out of there way to make sure everything was perfect and then the chef came out to met us!!!!!! the food was to die for I never wanted it to end as well as the delicious little extras they continuously bought out for us all night! Cannot put into words the experience you will have @ casa mele truely remarkable and I will most certainly be back in future!

We had a very nice dinner, high class food, service and drinks at a very reasonable price compared to other locations in the area. No sea view but an open kitchen where you can follow the chefs at work and feel your anticipation rise ahead of every dish. Try the hazelnut semifreddo, just amazing!
Do not miss this new restaurant when in Positano, we will definitely come back for more!
