Eating our way around Positano

Two weeks ago, we got married! It was the most incredible day, and I hope to write more on that later. But following that we spent a few days in Positano, Italy. It was the perfect place for a honeymoon, beautiful, not too busy, sunny, and full of beautiful food!

A few highlights and photos:

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

On Wednesday we got up to get the last boat over to Capri – at 10.30! We spent quite a bit of the day on buses in the end, but the plan was to have lunch at the beach club belonging to Il Riccio. The beach club was lovely, with amazing views, wonderful service, and everything beautifully plated.

The tasting room – their dessert buffet – was incredible!

Thursday we spent relaxing by the pool at our hotel, and enjoying the wine tasting that they offered.

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.

We had dinner at the one of the most beautiful places, Zass at Il San Pietro. Zass is built into the rocks and looks out over the water and both Positano and Priano. The view was incredible!

Dinner was also incredible – and a lot of food! We started with drinks and nibbles, olives etc, on the beautiful terrace, and then moved to restaurant, where our table was also looking out over the sea. We were given focaccia – and a slice of pizza while we were ordering, so already we’d had quite a lot of food!

Highlights were the bread soup (second picture) and chocolate dessert (last picture), but really the food was excellent, one of the best meals we’ve had.

Saturday we spent at Da Adolfo, a beach club just past Il San Pietro. They run a boat service to and from Positano, and we spent the day reading on the beach, and eating at the excellent restaurant. 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!
