We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Where to Eat on the Amalfi Coast

Henley Vazquez

Last week we shared some of the best hotels for plotting a romantic escape to Italy. This week, we're focused on where to feed your love. In other words, these are the best spots to binge on fresh pastas, fish straight from the sea, and just about every other delicious delicacy that brings us back to Italy year after year. Bring the kids, book a sitter, do whatever it takes to live la dolce vita to the hilt (and worry about the diet later).

If you're staying in Positano

Why walk to lunch when you can take a boat? If you've chartered your own captain and crew for the day, our top pick is Conca del Sogno, while Da Adolfo offers a complimentary water transport from Positano Beach. Those can both get busy (ahem, planning ahead is important), but there's also Il Pirata as a solid back-up plan.

For dinner, save one dinner for Buca di Bacco and another for Max. If you want a big night out to celebrate something special, the Micheline-starred La Sponda ranks as one of the most romantic restaurants in the world in our book. Franco's for pre- or post-dinner drinks is a must.

Pro tip: try not to look at the pricing in Positano. It's expensive. Order what you want and enjoy it.


Palazzo Avino

If you're staying in Ravello

As the crow flies, Ravello sits a short distance from Positano. But with summer traffic and the tiny, twisty roads of the Amalfi Coast, the two remain worlds apart. We like to combine a trip to this region with a stay in both, which means you'll need a whole new set of restaurants when you check into Palazzo Avino

For lunch, Avino's own beach club is fantastic, as is the beach club at Hotel Santa Caterina. Giardino Calce has a great terrace for casual pizzas as well. In the evening, favorites include Eolo and Da Gemma in Amalfi (be sure to reserve an outside table) or Scala's Trattoria de Lorenzo, which serves up a serious seafood feast. Closer to home (and great with the kids) is the informal trattoria, Cumpa Cosimo.
