La Tagliata: An Authentic Dining Experience in Positano
Situated high up in the hills of Montepertuso and overlooking the magical town of Positano, each and every part of the family-owned, Trattoria La Tagliata, is truly local – from the organic vegetables grown in their own gardens, free-range meat from animals raised on the surrounding farmland, handmade pasta right from the kitchen, to the vibrant ceramics, created and hand-painted by artisans from the local ceramic shop, Elisir di Positano (www.elisirdipositano.it).
Without any printed menus and accompanied by pitchers of wine, courses are served family-style and seem never-ending, and you’ll be warned to pace yourself. Each dish is fresh, full of flavor, and simply the best I’ve tasted during my travels in Italy. And, at the end, you will be pleased to receive a chilled glass of limoncello to complete your meal.
While all of these qualities make La Tagliata unique, including the unbeatable panoramic view, it is the family who owns it that makes it special. Some of the friendliest people I’ve met, they make you feel welcome from as soon as you arrive until after you leave. Their traditions, passion, and hospitality all shine through in the food and atmosphere they create for their guests.
Today, La Tagliata has expanded to a larger property with their own Bed & Breakfast, where guests can stay and have access to their organic vegetable gardens. A visit to La Tagliata is truly an unforgettable experience and a highlight on any trip to Positano.
