We are at Bucco one of our nights in Positano. Everything was delicious, the staff was so nice. We ordered the octopus special, salted cod with chickpea and pesto pasta and really enjoyed everything. It was good food with a great ambiance and view.

We enjoyed a delightful dinner here our first night in Positano. The establishment offers a glorious bay view and Michelin guide level service. The food and wine offerings were good at a reasonable price point considering the prime location.

We stopped for a glass of wine and some mussels/clams. It was a huge portion with a few different types. The view was great and the service prompt.
