Positano Coast Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur Aldo Lamberti, a native of Naples, wanted to create a real Italian experience when he redesigned Positano Coast (formerly Lamberti’s Cucina). Floor-to-ceiling photomurals adorn most walls in the dining room, offering dizzying views of Positano’s vertical coastline. The kitchen delivers the fresh Italian fare. The menu is heavy on pasta, as well as Italian preparations of chicken, veal and seafood. Try the gnocchi with creamy Gorgonzola sauce or the jumbo lump crab meat tossed with squid ink pasta, sea urchin, plum tomatoes, garlic and basil. Happy hour in the über cool lounge offers good deals on cocktails and small plates. There's even an organic cocktail list. A breezy outdoor terrace with views of historic Society Hill is open in warm weather. Try anything from the crudo menu (think Italian sushi). And at the bar, a limoncello martini. Staff is friendly and children are welcome.
