Positano / Amalfi Coast
So looking forward to spending my birthday early February in Positano although I am fully aware that a) the weather may be dire and b) most places will be closed... Doeas anyone know of good restaurants that will be open in Feb in this delightful Heaven on Earth? Thanks
This is difficult, because many places are seasonal. The few I'd recommend are closed that month. Try contacting your hotel for their recommendations...also try virtualtourist.com for "locals" thoughts.
I honeymooned in Amalfi. So many nice memories! Including comfortably swimming in the sea in early November, though February is probably a different story.
Not that you couldn't get this from a guidebook, but Don Alfonos 1890 (outside Sorento; http://www.donalfonso.com) is about 45 minutes away by car if you want to go very fancy. The best part (besides the food) was a seperate after dinner lounge area with hounds curled up on the rug.
La Sireneuse in Positano. It is one of the loveliest hotels in the world and has an outstanding restaurant, as well. Overlooking the sea in one of the most picturesque settings, the decor is sublime and is the food. Enjoy
Ask about a place called ZACHARIA'S in the town of Amalfi.
Seafood - they JUST BRING - best I'VE ever had!
Please report back if you go!
