I just found this by looking to see what had good reviews close by.  It was such a short walk from our hotel, which made it so convenient.  Walking is probably not the intended means of transportation in this part of the Amalfi Coast, since sidewalks and shoulders are nonexistent and cars drive dangerously close to each other in opposing directions.

Bruschetta
Complements from the chef.  Bright, refreshing, delicious.DSC06043

Antipasto Misto di Mare fresco e marinato
I really enjoyed the variety of offerings in this mixed plate of different types of fresh and marinated seafood.  Flavors were light.  This really seemed to be the theme in the Amalfi Coast.  Seafood was always really fresh too.DSC06045

Mezzi Paccheri Pastai Graganesi ragu di scorfano, coccio e ricciola
This was my second time enjoying paccheri pasta.  These large tubes were delightfully chewy and the fish ragu packed a lot of fishy flavor from kingfish, scorpionfish, and a 3rd fish I’ve never heard of, tub gurnard.DSC06046

Special of the Day
Porcinis were in season and this was quite the contrast from the last dish.  Tomatoes and fish packed a big punch, while the fresh porcinis were very light and delicate in flavor.  DSC06048

Another pleasing meal in Positano.  Pastas were al dente.  Flavors were well executed.  I suppose the recurring theme for the food in Positano, is solid all around, but nothing wow.  Even though there was nothing to write home about here, I could still eat it everyday.
