Oh, how we love Italy’s AMALFI Coast! In part two of our 3-part series on the breathtaking real estate, we’ll give you our suggestions on where to eat. Part one gave our recommendations on where to stay, and part three will give you some ideas for what to do during your visit!
Italy is known for its lifestyle: La Dulce Vita (The Sweet Life). That involves pace, beauty … and delicious food. Our restaurant list combines all three: a leisurely experience, a gorgeous setting and exquisite culinary options.
➤ RISTORANTE LA SPONDA
Our first meal upon arrival in Positano was at Le Sirenuse’s own Ristorante la Sponda, a lush and glowing atmosphere romantically lit with 400 candles. We ordered the tasting menu with a bottle of wine to try a bit of everything (much of it is local). It was a luxurious introduction to authentic Italian food.
➤ BUCA DI BACCO’S
We loved that Buca di Bacco’s ambiance is reminiscent of the 50’s Dolce Vita period and while opulent, still maintains a charming sense of simplicity. The chefs use only the freshest and finest local ingredients to prepare traditional Italian dishes. We sampled the grilled smoked mozzarella sourced from a local dairy farm and served in bright green lemon leaves, crunchy crostini appetizers, and a seafood platter for two. Go at sunset and take advantage of the patio seating!
➤ SAN PIETRO RISTORANTE
San Pietro Ristorante is an elegant choice located near the center of town. We arrived at sunset for cocktails on the terrace, where we were met with the melodies of a very talented guitarist duo playing live music. We made our way inside for a beautifully presented meal of several courses. The chef graced our table with a visit to describe his dishes, which change daily. His mastery of the local cuisine brings out the best in ripe tomatoes, fresh pasta, and tart Italian lemons.
