You have heard about simple meals of tomatoes and mozzarella tasting out-of-this-world... this is the place we had that experience. Stopped there hot and bothered after walking the "Path of the Gods". Had a relaxed, simple, delicious and memorable lunch while enjoying the spectacular views down to the coast.

We went hunting for a coffee after walking the Path of the Gods. Even though the restaurant wasn't open yet the staff were kind enough to serve us anyway. The view was spectacular. We didn't eat here but the menu looked good. The staff were friendly, the coffee was yummy, cheap and much needed. Thanks!

We stopped in for lunch whilst we were walking the Amalfi coast in stages. A nice lunch was spoilt by having to wait ages to get the bill, to the point of getting up from the table and donning rucksacks. We had been very polite , not broken anything, tried to speak Italian and spent £50. Buy a sandwich instead.

Sat in the window overlooking the coastline, it was stunning (see pics taken while sitting at Lunch). Great food and service and a fantastic place to stop if you have just finished the path of the gods. Great service as well!

As we were staying in Nocelle & this is the only restaurant within walking distance we have visited it several times, we have never been disappointed, the food & staff are always lovely, in our opinion considering prices on the Amalfi coast quite reasonable, on average our bill was around 90€ for 2 courses each with wine, bread, water &...

We'd arrived at the hilltop village of Nocelle above Positano for a late lunch at Santa Croce - it's a well-known establishment recommended by several travel guidebooks. The place was busy with hikers who'd completed the Sentiero degli dei trek earlier in the day but were lucky to snag a table. Food was fresh, local and generous and the service... More

This restaurant is at the west end of the path of the gods in Nocelle. It was a Sunday lunch time in mid October, but there were hundreds of people walking the spectacular path. They were a bit grumpy finding us a table, but cold beer materialised and all was forgiven when the food arrived - really good bresaola followed... More

The food and service are worth the trip up one night from positano for simple dining. But if staying in Nocelle it is the perfect location. The food was great quality and everyone is so nice and helpful. Antonio was great!

It's not properly easy to get there - unless you sleep in Nocelle - but the meal quality is simply outstanding. Not too many choices but it's a real local and fresh cuisine. Good wine selection and since you are not in Positano the price is super competitive. Few tables available recommended to book in advance especially during high season... More

We were glad that Nocella has such a superior restaurant considering it is a pain to take the bus up and back from touristy Positano. We ate here five nights in a row and the two brothers who run the restaurant give first class service with excellent ingredients and presentation. The menu and wine list are good. It overlooks the...
