I struggled on how many stars to give because some of the food was fantastic but some was marginal. The bolognese sauce was amongst the best I have ever had. The roasted chicken pizza was fantastic. Chicken piccata was average. Ravioli lacked flavor. Ambiance was dated. Servers were very friendly and accommodating.

Had the pork tenderloin special and it was awesome, my wife had the lasagna and loved it. Whatever you do make sure you get the cherry gelato in chocolate dessert!

Although located in a shopping center, the atmosphere at this little Italian restaurant is very nice. We went for our Valentine's Day dinner and were not disappointed. The food was really excellent and

Ate here in March with another couple visiting from out of town. All four of us loved it from the great service (Julie) to the wonderful meal. This time brought another couple with us and to a person we were all somewhat disappointed most of which centered around the server. Took forever to get our drink order and the the... More

Positano's is one of our most favorite restaurants in Florida. We always visit on a Friday evening as we go as much to hear the jazz trio as we do for the food and great service. Last night was exceptional as usual. We didn't get there until about 8:30. The bar manager, Joe, was on his way home but waited... More

We eat here fairly regularly and we always love it. The atmosphere, the music, the brick pizza oven, the appetizers, the cocktails, are always consistent and wonderful. My favorite Italian restuarant within 15 miles of home. Reservations are needed for the weekends, as it is always busy. Wishing the best of success to Positano's.

Nice friendly staff with a good selection of authentic Italian dishes. Our complaint of the area is that the dishes are too heavy and very much a copy of the real thing. At Positanos we believe its the best around.
