We had a remarkable dinner here at Ristorante Max. The staff was great at making recommendations for both food and wine. Everything was incredibly fresh, simple, and delicious. The wine list was very impressive. We would definitely dine here again. Do try to make a reservation.

A nice quit restaurant with good food and wine. They specialize in local fish, prepared simply, with great flavors. Their wine list was impressive with many local wines from the Campania region. I recommend the Taurasi red. The waiters were friendly and helpful. As I wrote in my title, this was our favorite restaurant and we went there twice including... More

We really enjoy this place, the food was terrific, the ambience was superb with lovely art work, rugs and bookcases. Service was akin to a top restaurant, certainly worth a visit.

What a find! This is a lovely restaurant in the heart of Positano. The decor is like sitting in the midst of an art gallery. We ordered the pasta sampler, the scallops, stuffed zucchini flowers. You must order the stuffed zucchini flowers. The Apple tart was amazing! The wait staff was attentive and professional! Don't miss this lovely restaurant!

I cannot say enough about the food and service at this restaurant! Outstanding from start to finish..our waiter even climbed up and picked a lemon from the tree for me. If that isn't great service, I don't know what is!!

Old school fancy decor with marble busts, oriental rugs, and wood paneling. Shared pasta sampler (pesto gnocchi, zucchini fettuccine, caprese ravioli, and pouch of something) and DELICIOUS AND FLUFFY lasagna -- possibly best I've ever had. Ended with gelato-filled profiteroles with chocolate sauce on the side -- think cream puff crossed with an ice cream sandwich. So. Good.

Our driver coming in to Positano recommended this place. We got here in the middle of the afternoon and decided on just walking around and grabbing and early dinner. We were the first ones there and they were quick to sit us. Staff was incredible. Food was incredible fresh and seasoned very well. The balance of richness to acidity was... More
