We all have priorities in restaurants – for some it’s strictly the food – for others it’s the ambiance and for yet another it’s the service. Some people like to go to a chic scene. My recipe is to mix all these ingredients and suggest the best to you. Bon Appetito!
Moderately Priced – Next2 has delicious food made with fresh ingredients. The presentation and quality is excellent. They also boast an extensive wine list. Beautiful ambiance with a gorgeous outdoor patio. They are located across the street from the cliff so you will not have an excellent view, but the food will wow you. Try the stuffed zucchini flowers!

Moderately Priced – The food in this family run restaurant is absolutely delicious. Moreover, the views are spectacular, since it is high up on the mountain a short drive from Positano. First of all, there is no menu, just an abundance of delectable farm to table dishes served to you. Secondly, wine is unlimited. Third, expect to have a blast. There is singing, music and dancing! All this for 40 EUR, plus a complimentary shuttle.
