Ristorante Max is my top pick in Positano for the night when you want to spend a little more, get dressed up, and have that ‘special dinner out’. When we are in Positano, we have our 2 favorite restaurants at this point – Le Tre Sorelle on the beachfront for casual atmosphere (see review); and Ristorante Max for more elegant. The food at Max is excellent.
The first time we went, my husband had what he deemed ‘the best lasagna ever in his life’. From the wine, to the pasta, to the fish (I don’t eat red meat, so I can’t comment on that), to the bread, everything is wonderful, and the staff is also engaging and friendly. Max also offers cooking courses if you are interested; and when I sent my mom and dad, my mom loved the dishes so much, she bought them and had them sent back to the states!
I have sent quite a few friends and family to Ristorante Max, and all of them have enjoyed it, and have returned. One of my top 2 restaurant picks in Positano.
