I love this place. I was introduced to Positanos by my boyfriends parents who have been going there for years. On entering, they were greeted by name like they were long lost friends. It is a small place, so you must book, but it's got such a lovely family feel to it and you are welcomed into their clan. The... More

We visited here with two friends who live in surbiton. We were greeted by the lady owner who was very apologetic as although we had booked our table wasn't ready. We really didn't mind waiting as the restaurant was full and she have us all a free drink and nibbles while we waited. Once seated I found it hard to... More

Came here for a birthday and the owners were so accommodating and helped us celebrate with warmth and good humour. We had a lovely night and a tasty dinner, good Italian food. The place was really busy even though it was only a tuesday.

to be fair there was nothing wrong with this restuarant, just felt they need to move with the times and bring things into 2014. I know it has been going for a while, and i agree that if it is not broke then why fix it, but i had thought the days of loud musicians "entertaining" the diners was a... More

Expecting big things after all the reviews but ended up a little disappointed. Food was good but not great, our Italian friend said he would prefer pizza express(!). Service was a little erratic but overall Positanos had a good family run vibe, but did feel a bit like an 80s escapee. Slightly odd note when a load of laser glitter... More

We were staying in the Surbiton area for a couple of days last week and used Trip Advisor beforehand (as we always do!) to research local eating places. It was obvious that Positano was highly rated and so we decided to give it a try. We headed out on foot on a wet and chilly evening and in the dark... More

This down-to-earth restaurant has a warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff are welcoming and pleasant, they apparently never forget a face, and they like to make a fuss over birthdays. I especially liked the sauces with my meatball starter (polpette al sugo) and main (branzino al limone). My dining companion's dessert (an Italian take on creme caramel) was a bit... More

Great dinner with excellent pizzas which were very thin and well cooked. Great desserts with sublime chocolate ice cream

What can I say... I've been traveling quite a lot around the world but I found this little gem that makes me feel like home. As Italian I do love proper mediterrean food and Positano never let me down. Superlative. It is difficult to suggest a favorite dish.Everything is fresh and made with genuine passion and love. You can go... More
