My wife and 2 Teen Children decided to spend our last evening after a 2 week Italia vacation at the San Pietro Restaurant (ZASS Restaurant) in the San Pietro Hotel in Positano. Although after a week in Positano, we had already become well accustomed to the spectacular views and many photo opps, we were still taken aback by the sheer splendour and beauty of this cliff side Hotel and Restaurant. Firstly, we arrived by car and were greeted by free Valet Parking. We were staying in a private home (the Guida Residence-Excellent!!!) a short walk or drive away but decided to drive as my wife and daughter were both wearing heals.We took a very small and quaint elevator down one floor and immediately were greeted with care and warmth. When we stepped outside to sit at the outdoor bar and have a pre dinner cocktail, we were immediately taken aback by the sheer beauty of the property and the unbelievable views of the Meditarian and Positano in the backdrop. Bring your camera as you will take the most amazing pictures of your entire trip at this location. The cocktails were glorious (highly suggest the signature Bellini's) and we were given some small snacks of vegetables, chips and the most amazing green olives. Once we were done with the many pictures and had completed our drinks we stepped into the equally beautiful dining room. Giuliano and Salvatore took very nice care of my family and were very accommodating to my 14 year son's many special requests.I am not a food critic and would not dream of attempting to over analyze the food as many others do on social media with little to no qualifications. What I can tell you is that we thoroughly enjoyed all of our selections including the wine and were very very happy. Dining in my opinion is a mix of service, ambiance and obviously food and the San Pietro scored an excellent mark on all three. It was the perfect way to end our love affair with Italia and we were very delighted to have chosen this location as our last memory of Positano.

Il San Pietro is a fantastic hotel, so it's not a huge surprise that its main restaurant, Zass, is outstanding. Everything is fresh, perfectly prepared and served with a genuine smile.

Four of us had dinner and every dish was better than the other. The pasta portions, luckily, are not huge so you can try many things. The night we were there an opera singer was on hand and he was really really good.

This could be a place for special occasion or, as it was in our case, just a place for a great dinner with friends surrounded by views which are second to none.

The view is amazing. The food is amazing. The staff is amazing. Even if you aren't staying at San Pietro, this is a must dining experience. Beautiful and romantic, warm and friendly. A wonderful experience.

The most spectacular view! Cocktails are served outside in the courtyard overlooking the water. At 8 o'clock everyone goes inside to the restaurant where we also had a fabulous table overlooking the sea. It was my daughter's birthday, and they remembered to do a candle in her dessert and really took very good care of our party of eight. The menu was extensive enough for everyone to find something they liked however, there were only approximately eight choices under each course selection, with an emphasis on seafood. I have a feeling though if there had been a vegan or vegetarian in our group, and the chef knew in advance, they could make it work. The service was fabulous and very accommodating. It is on the expensive side, so definitely good for celebrations. The presentation of each dish was foodie heaven!! It truly deserves its Michelin star!!
PS- it was very warm in early July so dress accordingly!!
