La Terrazze: "Breathtaking atmosphere with great food" Positano Restaurant Tip by ian.and.victoira

This restaurant is like will either love it or hate it! If you are only interested in getting good food with relaxed service then this place ISNT for you... the dishes take a long while to come out... the waiters try their best to cover up the wait and are very attentive but it is obvious that they are experienced in the food coming out a very steady pace - this is clearly down to the chef wanting to ensure everthing is of a good standard and also in Italy if the company is good then the wait isn't a big deal...eating in this part of Italy is more like going round someones house for some supper... you get fed when the food is ready ... so if you are in a rush and not in great company then stay away!!
The view is breathtaking... one of the best in positano (ladies take a wrap or a pashmina as it can get a bit chilly!!) and the atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely.
The food does now have prices on the menu - there isn't reams of pages to sift through ... I always fell nervous when there is a long menu - how can all that food be cooked from scratch ...there were probably about 5 each for antipasti, primi pati and secondi patti, a good menu is quality not quantity... ...everything here is cooked fresh which is why it takes so long.

I disagree the food is just as good as elsewhere, the presentation and the way the dishes were executed was superior (only just) to most meals we had, however the atmosphere is very special, and it was the only restaurant we revisited in Positano... and they remembered us.

It isn't particularly cheap either (about ?150 for 2 people) but come on you are on holiday, have a luxurious night enjoy the company of whoever you are with and just in dulge!!

Favorite Dish: The fillet of beef for main course and the king prawn antipasti were delicious...

Address: on top of Music on the Rocks...just by the beach
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Just keep walking to the main beach, past chez black and tre sorrelle and keep actually have to have go into the nightclub to get to the restaurant.
