Service was good and all staff were efficient and pleasant. We were in and out in a hour which is just what we were... More

Well after a very long time of not visiting the Lakes, I manged to eat at Villa Positano once again, and as always we were not disappointed, it was fantastic. The Staff are so warm and friendly and that is only managed by the quality of food that is prepared. We love this place and have never been disappointed in... More

We booked a table, but on arrival at the restaurant we were told that there wasn't a table available yet, and we needed to wait upstairs. We were left there for 20 mins and then taken to our table. The service was quick, possibly a little too quick, as it felt we were being rushed through our meal. The food... More

Ordered meatballs and pizza both of which were delicious. Family run restaurant and every-one was really friendly. Tucked away so ask for directions if you can't find it.

We visited on a Saturday evening around 7pm without booking, we were greeted and made welcome and immediately shown to a table. The restaurant was busy and got more busy as the evening went on, even so nothing was too much trouble. The minestrone soup here is the best I and my husband have ever had and he also said... More

After reading the reviews we decided to try Villa Positano and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and our children were made to feel welcome. There is a wide range of pasta, pizza and other dishes on the menu and it was hard to choose! Although there is not a separate children's menu they do children's size portions... More

Or I Came I Saw I like it. It is proper Italian, no frills no nonsense just very good food served by the most friendly staff. We thought we were back on the Amalfi coast with the incredible choice available in the restaurants in that part of the world. We really were struggling to choose as the dishes being served... More

We were spoilt for choice in looking for somewhere to eat in Bowness but decided on Villa Positano as the aromas in the street and it's position down a little alleyway made it seem fairly authentic. We hadn't booked but were invited to take a drink in the bar whilst a table was prepared within 10 minutes. We had fabulous... More
