This restaurant was recommended by our very helpful driver. It is a very long and at times scary ride up to La Terra which is set very high up above Positano. It wasn't the very capable driver of the free shuttle, Salvatore, from the restaurant but the roads and other drivers that made it scary! We were welcomed by the owner, Francesco and his staff . He quickly seated us by a window with what would have been a fabulous view if it hadn't been for the huge storm over the bay of Salerno on the day that we visited. Our starters were very tasty and generous , the pasta was also delicious. The main course was disappointing, and the dessert was very good . We came away from the meal feeling very full and felt that the atmosphere in the restaurant was a bit flat. This could have been because it was a Thursday night. The trip back down the mountain gave us some wonderful moonlit views of Positano and the the bay of Salerno. If you want to use the free shuttle it is important that you make your booking with La Terra yourself and ask for the shuttle to fetch you otherwise you hotel will order a taxi.

From the free shuttle that picks you up fro. Your hotel to the journey home, everything is amazing. Okay so the shuttle ride up through the windy roads is a little hair raising... But when you arrive at the restaurant you have the warmest welcome, a complimentary small glass of fizz. The portins are huge, the pasta is some of the best we've ever eaten. We were too full for pudding, but looking around at other tables, they looked amazing.
The service is homely and friendly.
They even have an amazingly talented waiter and waitress who suddenly break into song and saxophone. It's just brilliant. And very reasonably priced.
So pleased we went.

We've been to quite a few of the top-rated restaurants in Positano and thought that La Terra was the best out of them. Easy to book a table and within 15 minutes the free shuttle was picking us up in Positano. We arrived early so the service was quick and efficient (it probably gets slower when the dining room is full). We had tuna carpaccio and squids as appetizers, then the sea food risotto, scaloppini and nodini as main dishes - everything was simply perfect. We highly recommend La Terra.
