Had a lovely dinner at this friendly and upscale restaurant. All of the wait staff were lovely. We ordered the Bruschetta and Parma wrapped melon balls for starters - both were very good I had the best fillet of beef I've had in a very long time - it matched my previous best! So tender i hardly needed my knife.... More

Had dinner at Villa Positano on our first night staying in Bowness, the were very busy and we had to wait 15 minutes for a table in the bar, but the staff were very friendly offering us drinks and the food was well worth the wait!

A nice big plate of garlic bread to start, followed by a delicious Penne All'Arrabiatta with lots of chilli. I needed the tiramisu afterwards to cool me down! Friendly staff, great service. Would go again.

Visited during our first night in Bowness and glad we did. Service was excellent, our wine was topped up regularly and all staff checked each course was to our satisfaction. My wife had garlic mushrooms to start which were very fresh and tasty whilst I had brushetta. My beef fillet stroganoff was lovely although a little more rice would have... More

A light, airy room with sky lights, tiled floor, painted walls with "local Italian" decorations. It felt like being on an Italian balcony! Really nice. The three waiters were all busily hurrying around, but... More
