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.

I love Positanos. The food is good, fresh, and plentiful and the atmosphere is welcoming and calming (love the blue/beige/brown motif). I learned today that they make their own homemade organic tomato sauce. Beaggio and Mena, owners want to make sure that you are happy and always coming back.I also just learned that they have music on Friday nights...might have... More

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.

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.

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
