Lonely Planet review

This is one of the Amalfi Coast’s most reputable restaurants, located in mountainside Montepertuso, above Positano. Once a humble trattoria and now run by Rosa’s daughter Raffaella, the culinary lineage is set to continue with Raffaella’s daughter Erika who has studied with Jamie Oliver in London. The celebrity chef has a long connection with the restaurant, having dined here on his honeymoon and declared it to be one of his all-time favourite restaurants.

The menu changes frequently but you can be guaranteed some of the best food – and views – on the coast. Don’t miss the hot chocolate soufflé and be sure to book ahead. Future plans include cooking courses; check the website for an update.
