Its the real deal. Wonderful authentic Italian food-large portions-reasonable pricing and a family atmosphere. Outdoor eating when the weather is suitable and parking never an issue. The Pizza is excellent and they have home delivery.

Kitchen is good and service (Spanish spoken from elsewhere in the world). One of the few restaurants where you can conveniently sit outside during warm summer days.

I have been going to Positano's in Plainsboro ever since they have opened and have never been disappointed n a dinner there. Even just going for lunch in the summer and sitting on the piazza is nice. I usually have a main course which includes either soup or salad but I will occasionally have two appetizers instead, especially if one... More

I'm not sure what I was expecting for dinner, but I wasn't expecting something this good. The appetizer bread was incredible and the meal just got better from there. We all left full stomachs and smiling faces. We are glad we went.

First time there.Very good service and nice well decorated room with big tables leaving plenty of room for the food. The linguine with white clam sauce was probably as good or better than you can find anywhere. No chopped clams just fresh cooked clams in the shell and the waitress served a bowl for the clam shells with out having... More

Went for a business lunch - Food was very good but service, although excellent, was very slow. Had the Gnocchi Gorgonzola - was very very good!

We live in the town and enjoy dining here alone as a couple, with our family and with friends. Entrees are fresh, well prepared and plentiful. Service is very good and the owners are very friendly and likeable. It is our favorite place to bring or meet other couples for a nice dinner, as you can BYOB, have a wonderful... More

Positano Grill is located in what I like to refer to as Faux Town. It truly is a "fake town" created by Sharbell not quite a decade ago to spur the Plainsboro Renassiance. If you ask me, it looks more like a movie set then a real town, only on a much smaller scale than others - think Celebration, Fla,... More

I found this restaurant when were looking for a home in the area. Now we live just a few minutes away. Positanos is our go to restaurant. The owners are delightful and treat us like family. The food is consistently fresh and well prepared. The veal is tender, the veggies al dente, the pasta home made. The salad and house... More

We dined at Positano last week for the first time. Mostly "Italian" with some fish, beef etc. Very pretty dining room with patio dining available when weather permits. The entrees come with a salad which was just very ordinary, but the entree's were above average. Quality ingredients, careful preparations and well seasoning made the dishes a pleasant surprise. The portion... More
