The Best Restaurants In Positano, Italy

Oh, Italy! Is there anywhere with more delectable food than this glorious country? The pasta, the pizza, the wine… it’s a tough combo to beat and the Italians know how to do meals right. We recently returned from Italy, with part of our trip being spent on the Amalfi Coast in the charming town of Positano.

Last month we took our first flight with Sophie. She was three months old at the time and we were ready to get out of our newfound comfort zone and back to traveling even though that meant we had to face a daunting hurdle - flying with a baby.

Rome. Florence. Venice. These cities are on every tourist's must-see list while in Italy. But wander past these famed locales and you'll find pleasure in the country's less-frequented spots, some of the best being in the unsung north where rugged peaks, grand villas and glittering lakes take center stage.
