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

Dined last week for perhaps the 3rd or 4th time within the last few months at this cute gem of a restaurant. Reasonably priced, good sized portions and the food is really consistently fantastic. The owners (who I never fail to see or chat with) are the most pleasant people you will ever meet. The wait staff is attentive. I... More

My wife and I actually found this restaurant by mistake. We were looking for a different restaurant in the area but my wonderful GPS got us lost. We found ourselves outside the Positano Mediterranean Grill and decided to give it a try. We were greeted warmly and seated at a nice table in the middle of the restaurant, Our drink... More
