C'era una volta is a winner on all counts: good food made from local ingredients, and a terrific rooftop terrace that has breathtaking views of the gulf and the coastline. There is also in interior dining room that is air-conditioned. It is located on the Amalfi Coast Road, above Positano. (Take the bus up to Bar Internazionale then walk along the road a few minutes.)

The pizzas are noteworthy and popular, but they offer local dishes such as Gnocchi alla Positanese (with prawns and cherry tomatoes) or spaghetti with shrimp, along with fresh fish and an abundant antipasto plate. The ricotta pear cake is worth saving room for.

Closed Thursday. Reserve in advance if you want a table on the terrace.
