Report from Positano

Sampaguita-- is it possible that the family-owned restaurant was Lo Guarracino?

Lunch in/around Positano -- great pizza, reasonably priced?

Check out Lo Guarracino in Positano. The view is heavenly-- looking over the Fornillo Beach.
We enjoyed lunch there, dining on pizza, salad and wine-- which was good. The approach to the restaurant is via a scenic coastal walk.

I do own a copy of Tippet's Sunflower Landscapes guide which seems to be quite comprehensive- but it's always good to get first hand info--
Also-- will use the local tourist offices for maps as well.

As for Positano Adventure Walks-- we are using them to guide us through Pompeii.

Thanks for the heads up about Bruno's-- will have to amend our reservations.

When you hiked the Pathway of the Gods, where did you go from Nocelle?

Also-- did you have the opportunity to walk down from Montepertuso?

Montepertuso (La Tagliata or Il Ritrovo) & Ravello (Villa Maria)???

Can't wait to sit on that terrace!!!
We also plan on doing some hiking ( using Tippet's Sunflower Landscapes as a guide,as well). We plan on hiking up to Montepertuso, up to Pontone via the Valley of the Mills-- as well, many hikes on Capri. Not sure if we'll do the Pathway of the Gods-- heard and also read (in an old NYTimes article) that it can get very narrow in a few places ( which might unnerve my husband).
We have also read good reviews about Bar Bruno--- planning on drinks at Le Sirenuse and walking up the block to Bruno's.

Thanks so much for sharing your experiences-- as well to those who have responded.

Hotel Marincanto will be our base for five nights in Positano. Prior to that we will be staying for 4 nights at La Minerva on Capri.

Montepertuso (La Tagliata or Il Ritrovo) & Ravello (Villa Maria)???

Coupling a beautiful view with a good meal ( e.g. L'Esplanade in Domme, France) is important during our vacations. Any assistance would be appreciated in helping us decide between La Tagliata and Il Ritrovo. We know that Donna Rosa has received good reviews- however, it is our understanding that there are no views to be had while dining.

We will also be attending a concert in Ravello and have a reservation at Villa Maria. Any pros- cons- alternatives in Ravello???

Thanks !
