Buca di Bacco

Buca di Bacco Positano

One of the oldest establishments in Positano, Hotel Buca di Bacco has been providing heart-felt hospitality to holiday makers visiting this charming little town on the Amalfi Coast, since the start of the 20th century.

Buca di Bacco (the "Tavern of Bacchus") first opened its doors as a hostelry, a watering hole which, in no time at all, was to become a favourite haunt of the many artists and intellectuals sojourning in Positano.

Over the years, Buca di Bacco has changed considerably; and from modest tavern has been transformed in delightful family-run hotel, where to sojourn in tastefully furnished rooms and enjoy some of the best food in the whole of Positano. What has remained unaltered is the owner's enthusiasm and desire to make all guests feel completely at home.

The hotel's 47 bedrooms, almost all of which with balcony or sea view terrace, are decorated in classic Mediterranean style, inspired by the elegant patrician villas typical of the Amalfi Coast.

In the kitchen where, once upon a time, the proprietor's grandparents might easily have been found whipping up their local specialities for the tourists visiting Positano and the Amalfi Coast, today Anna and Carla continue to prepare the very same flavour-packed Mediterranean dishes for which Buca di Bacco first became famous. Those keen to learn more about the area's delicious cuisine, can join one of the hotel's entertaining cooking classes.
