Come hungry to this local favorite, which is tucked high in the hills above Positano. The setting is rustic: wooden chairs, checkered tablecloths, and various potted plants and bunches of garlic hanging from the ceiling. Diners do not order à la carte; rather they sit, and out comes the food, which includes antipasta, a large selection of homemade pasta and copious amounts of meats, which are prepared on a grill in the back and served with salad and fresh vegetables. It’s an impossible amount of food, and I observed several locals who skipped the pasta course—this required a fair amount of discussion up front, of course—in order to save room for the truly memorable meats, which included a selection of pork, sausage, lamb and steak. Reserve a table at the window for fabulous views of Positano and the sea. La Tagliata offers a free shuttle service from most hotels along the coast, but if you’re going during lunchtime, you can also take the scenic hike back down to Positano. Open for lunch and dinner.

TIP: Unless you’re a fan of limoncello, don’t let the waiter talk you into having one; yes, the sweet liqueur is the typical conclusion to a meal on the Amalfi Coast, but after the amount of food you’ve just consumed, grappa is the way to go.
