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

This restaurant offers some of the best Italian/Mediterranean food in the Plainsboro area that has outdoor seating. I had one of the specials "Pappardelle Plainsboro" which was ground sausage, peas, and tomatoes in a pink sauce that was very good. They definitely don't skimp out on the serving size either. The meal came with a choice of soup or salad... More

Positanos offers a mix of Meditarranean and Italian flavors. They have a lot of really good seafood dishes as well. They have a nice outdoor seating area on the patio. It's a great spot for lunch or dinner.

When my friends and I want good, solid Italian food at very good prices we always choose this little gem in Plainsboro, NJ. It is not far from downtown Princeton. That means parking is ample and it is not jammed packed. The interior is quiet and pleasing. There is an outdoor patio but it is located in an area of... More
