part 3 Positano and Venice

Wednesday was another perfect day (high 70’s). We slept in and then took off again down the coast. We stopped for coffee and my boyfriend got his first newspaper fix. (although he did manage to find an Internet “disco” in Positano). We headed up to Furore, as I had heard there was a winery in this hilltop town. After stopping for directions a few times, we found the Marisa Cuomo Winery. As what looked like a garage door was open, we walked right in. The owner was at the bottling machine and all smiles. He showed us the old barrels and let us taste some wine and told us about the history of the winery. He was very excited to show us a copy of Wine Spectator with one of his wines. After photos, we bought some wine and left. We headed back down to the coast and walked into Atrani-had to have another Tomato and mozzarella sandwich and gelato. After relaxing on our terrace, I headed into Positano to check out a few shops. I bought a tablecloth at the Sirenuse store and a ceramic bowl at Umberto Carro. Several locals had recommended La Tagliata for dinner. The restaurant is between Monteperuso and Nocella. They actually sent a taxi down to the coast to pick us up. (we did not want to try the turns on the road after having wine with dinner!). The place was amazing. We really let the host order for us. We began the meal with a house anti pasta plate. Next came a mixed pasta plate followed by a mixed grill of meats (steak, sausage, chicken, lamb etc) for me and a mixed seafood plate for my boyfriend. I think both plates could have served 3 to 4 people. Without even asking, they brought us a sampling of 3 desserts-limoncelli and coffee. The bill including our car service with beer and wine was 60 euro. Great place-will quickly become popular with tourist.

We had arranged for Marcello to pick us up from Positano on Thursday. He had a mix up on dates so he sent another driver-Mariano. I had read about a visit to a local farm with Marcello on epinions.com-since Marcello felt so badly about the mix up, he arranged for us to visit the farm on the way to our planned visit to Pompeii and Naples.
