First time at this restaurant. Everyone was very pleasant. Service was quick and food was good at a reasonable price. The lasagna portion was huge , but still finished it. The penne all a vodka was good also

Our reservation appeared to mean nothing as we waited while apparent regulars arriving after us were seated ahead of us. Food was average Italian; service good, once seated. It's in a strip mall on a busy highway. This restaurant-rich region offers better value, service and ambiance options if you are looking for seafood and/or Italian.

We visit Positano's regularly, never had a bad meal here. Try the pizza, one of the best I've ever had (thin crust) is the Quattro Formagi. Reasonable prices and their wine list is very nice and also reasonable. Would highly recommend this to anyone loving Italian food.

This is yet another little restaurant gem. The restaurant is small but does offer a private room for a small gathering or Christmas party. The food is wonderful. The Chicken Francese melts in your mouth, the salad is fresh and the stuffed mushrooms are to die for. Very rich but excellent flavors with the hint of sherry and sausage. Service... More

Greated with a lot of warm inviting smiles and we knew we would be in for a very nice dining experience. That is an understatement. The server, she was fantastic and offered suggestions and she was not wrong. I had the veal parmesan which was infact the most tender veal that I have enjoyed in years with a homemade sauce... More

I have loved this since the first time dining there. The food is excellent every time. The staff are great. The specials are consistently good. They added a wood burning pizza oven of the old school kind in Italy so they offer amazing looking pizzas. But I always order from the pasta/meat menu because they know how to cook veal... More

We made a reservation for our dinner at Positani's and were seated promptly. The menu has a good variety of pasta, seafood, chicken, beef and veal dishes. The pollo arrabiata was a generous portion with just the right amount of spice. My friends all enjoyed their choices as well. We didn't gave dessert but the ones I saw others eating... More

The entrées were delicious - penne bolognese (lots of meat in the sauce) and the lasagne. No complaints and would go back for these; and the salad was good. The appetizers - while the bruschetta was very good, the clams oreganato were disappointing. They were tiny and soggy - edible, but not as tasty as I've had at other places.... More

Great service, beautiful presentation. We order the Veal Saltimbocca every time. The sauce was a little thicker than usual but the same great flavor. The flash fried prosciutto is to die for! The wines are good and affordable. They do offer an alternative to pasta for gluten free people. We come here every couple of months and have had special... More
