Donna Rosa, Positano
Tel: 39 089 811 806
Concierge.com's insider take:
High above Positano, on the slopes of Monte Sant'Angelo, is a tiny village called Montepertuso. Of an evening, Positanesi and tuned-in visitors brave the curving road to bask in the cool mountain air and to eat at Donna Rosa or Il Ritrovo. Donna Rosa is the more bijou-elegant of the pair, but what's on the plate is reassuringly unpretentious, with homemade pasta going into primi such as stripy black-and-white pasta strips served with seafood. The desserts are terrific (be sure to leave space for the hot chocolate soufflé), while the impressive wine list is particularly strong on whites from the Campania region. Note it's closed Tuesdays September through May.—Lee Marshall
