The atmosphere is warm and cozy and the food delicious. Just had the stuffed peppers appetizer and they were amazing. We always order the specials and they are always perfect!

Had a great dinner and had ordered a dish similar to Chicken Parmesan and it was delicious. My husband had the Veal Oscar and said it was the best ever and was quite surprised with the quality of the veal and the flavoring. This place does not have a liquor license so you need to take your own bottle of... More

We were tired of our usual Friday night pizza spot so we decided to try a new place. Positano is not just your average pizza place. It is a wonderful Italian restaurant. Nice atmosphere, but still casual. None of us ordered pizza. All 4 entrées were delicious. salmon over spinach was awesome. Good portion sizes so I had the leftovers... More

Very nice decor for a neighborhood restaurant. The service was very friendly and also efficient, even though it was crowded. The menu offers many selections, some gluten free. Three out of four of us thought the food was very good, only one thought it was average at best. Prices were competitive. This is a BYOB place and suitable for a... More

I was able to make the reservation for four on the website. We were able to choose a table and there was room for two walkers. Although I had requested a candle on my mother's dessert, it did not happen. When I mentioned it they whisked the dessert away and returned with a candle and singing. The menu choices were... More

I've eaten at Positano many times and have never been disappointed. They have a great selection of wraps and salads, all reasonably priced.

We live in the Princeton area and have eaten here often. The food is excellent and it is nice to eat outside. The owner also owns Romeo;s (see separate review). The soups, salads, pizza and penne vodka and other pasta dishes are very good. The prices are reasonable. It is a good place for special occasions.
