Grand Finale Meal in Positano

It was actually a shuttle ride up to the top of the mountain, more than 300 meters above the ocean to La Taglia, a family-run trattoria.

We thought it might be just for tourists but there were a lot of locals there. The friendly family greets us, and we're immediately seated at a table. Out comes a jug of wine, followed by at least a dozen separate antipastis. We absolutely lost count of the number but it was quite a variety.

The primo piatti included four separate pastas, including "Mama's" special pasta. Next was a plate of grilled meats, followed by a plate of desserts. Oh yes, the jug of wine was refilled, as far as we can recall.

Quantity? Incredible! Quality? Pretty darned good. The cost? $100 US a couple, including generous tip to the restaurant and the shuttle driver.

We'll have great memories of this restaurant and this region as we waddle back to Naples to catch our flight to Munich and our final two nights of this trip.
