Great neighborhood Italian bistro

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.

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.

I was asked to go to lunch at this restaurant and wasn't expecting much. I used to frequent this restaurant back when it was called DaTulio's and it was always good. The new owners have renovated to make it much cleaner and more open to give a better feel. The service was excellent, even at lunch. My Penne Ala Vodka... More

Took my boyfriends mom there for her Birthday. We started off with sangria and wine . Happy hour on Saturday? Sweet!! Ordered the Antipasti. Awesome! Select assortment of cheeses, meats, olives, peppers etc.. portion size was large enough for 3 people with leftovers. House salad was fine. Homemade house dressing was very good. For dinner I had the eggplant parm... More

Made reservations for 6:45, arrived at 6:40 and seated right away. Staff was attentive and helpful with menu. Started with the house salad and veal saltimbuca for main along with a glass of house chianti. Everything was delicious. Background music, three piece band and not too loud, was a nice addition. Prices were more than fair.

While I usually do not like paying high prices for pasta, which is cheap to prepare at home, this restaurant is worth it once in a while. I especially like the lasagne here along with the bread. I love the bread and dipping oil or butter. This is a fine dining restaurant with the prices to prove it. The taste... More

My husband, son and I had another great dining experience at Positano's restaurant. On this visit we ate in the bar area, Joe was our server. He knows his wines and made a great selection. If you like martini's he's the best at making them. He knows what he's doing and gave us excellent service. The food as always was... More

Celebrated a birthday party. Stuffed Pork Chop is the best. We had pizza for an appetizer baked in their wood fire oven. Wow! Staff was accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable. Cant wait to be able to dine there again.

We were there twice this month. Both times the food was delicious and the server was efficient and friendly. This is becoming our favorite spot.
