Consistently Good Food!

Every time I come here the food is amazing but I feel as if I am being rushed through my meal by the wait staff.

We have never had a bad meal there. I love the salads, and penne with vodka sauce. My husband has had spaghetti with meatballs.

Have lived locally for 20 or so years, and have eaten here since they opened, and never had a bad meal. Eat in or take out, holiday parties, catering, they are fantastic. I love that the waiters are all "lifers" and know us by name and face, and take the time to know how we take our dishes and always... More

Have been to Positano on several occasions and have always found it to be acceptable italian food, not bad, not great. I don't go out of my way to go here since there are many italian restaurants in the area that are better.

Having dined at this establishment 5-6 times over the last year or so, I unfortunately have come to find, that the food, excellent is accompanied by very bad service and uncaring and inconsiderate owners. Make a reservation, I guarantee you that you will not be seated within a half an hour of the time you reserved. Seafood dishes are always... More

Went here for dinner with my best friend (on his advice). We were seated right away. Had the fried calamari as an appetizer. It was perfectly cooked with a light flaky coating. I had chicken piccata, which was delicious. It came with three large pieces of chicken and mixed sauteed vegetables. I choose the salad instead of the pasta. The... More

My family and I had a very nice sit down dinner at Positano. It was nothing fancy, just a couple of very good pizzas hot out of the oven. My wife and I also had a couple of the salads. She had a house salad and I tried their apple salad, which had walnuts and toasted pine nuts in it.... More
