Positano report

BritInDC | Jun 1, 201505:52 AM

After much advice and research on these boards, we spent four days in Positano last week on our honeymoon, and ate incredibly well. Thanks for all your tips.

We arrived late on Tuesday night and after checking in went straight to the champagne and oyster bar at Sireneuse, which was helpfully just a few minutes from our hotel. Beautiful view, lovely drinks, and the oysters were fabulous.

Wednesday we spent on Capri and had lunch at Il Riccio. The beach club was lovely, again amazing views, wonderful service, and everything beautifully plated. Highlights of the tasting menu were the vermicelli with sea urchin and of course the tasting room! My new husband decided we still needed dinner that evening, so we headed to Le Tre Sorelle for a casual dinner, with the mozarella starter a clear highlight.

Thursday we had dinner at Bruno, having booked a table at lunch time when we walked past. This was our one real meat meal of the week, he had steak, I had veal. Again lovely, they were very helpful with wine recommendations.

On Friday we managed to eat a huge amount of food! Lunch was at Buca di Bacco, where the starters were amazing - swordfish carpaccio and a grilled squid and mozarella from the specials menu. Dinner was at Zass and was just amazing. The hotel is beautiful, they took photos for us as we appeared, and all the food was amazing (although they served a slice of pizza pre-dinner and that was perhaps a bit heavy!). Real stand outs were the bread soup and my husband's chocolate desert.

Saturday we spent at Da Adolfo. It was a lot of fun - they obviously like everyone to eat at the same time, and there was a lot of running around and excitement. It was full of Italian families. The grilled mozarella was superb!

All in all, a pretty good week of eating!
