This is a very small restaurant (maybe 30 people) and if you are unfortunate to be there with a loud group at one table (as we were) you won't be able to hear yourself think, let alone hear what your dining mate is saying from across the table. An extremely loud group of eight disrupted the evening for everyone else... More

Nice little hole in the whole in the wall. Food was very flavorful, definitely suggest the squid ink pasta and seafood, my wife had the rack if lamb and that was also very well prepared. Only negative is the the place can feel a life cramped.

Not all Italian restaurants are created equal. Most don't resemble what you would find in Italy. Locanda Postiano is the closest dining experience to meals I have had in Italy. The food, the service, the beautifully simple decor.

Locanda Positano is located on Lincoln Boulevard in the Marina del Rey area. Our party had dinner in the rear dining space, which has large tables, wine racks, art and is great for a famly/friend event. The menu was enticing and every item was hot, delicious and enjoyable. The service was very good. I initially thought the pasta portions might... More

Delicious! Steamed clams and mussels - the sauce/broth was soooo good. A salad with the artichokes was great, not too sour, just perfect. Pasta with rapini and sausage was done just right - not too much sauce, generous sausage amount, very comforting dish. Will be back asap. The staff was very nice and attentive. Wine recommendation was spot on.

This gem in the heart of Marina del Rey is always a treat, the food is tasty and hot along with a great wine selection. We have eaten there two times before, however this night must have been an off night, slow to no service, food was tough and barely warm, the wine was the best part of the meal.... More

Good food but waitstaff couldn't find it's tush with both hands. Too small and too loud. Total miscommunication with our order. One person took our order, another brought the wrong food but couldn't understand enough English to explain what was wrong with the order, so the original waiter thought we had sent back what we ordered and he never bothered...

A tremendous Italian dining experience. The dining room is small, but has great energy and atmosphere. House made pastas were light and expertly sauced. Wild boar is featured in several dishes just as in Tuscany. I had the wild boar osso buco over sautéed spinach and saffron risotto. The shank was tender and deeply flavored. The wine list is strictly... More

This small, intimate Italian restaurant in Marina Del Rey never fails to give a fine dining experience. It's quiet, so you can have a conversation...the food is first rate, and the service friendly and efficient. I've dined there many times, and have always had a memorable meal, feeling as though I were not in Marina Del Rey, but rather somewhere... More
