PLEASANTLY GOOD

Positano was recommended to us by other friends and we finally had the chance to go here for lunch. I've seen other older reviews that did not have good things to say but I saw that they were a year old or more. Maybe they changed the chef because we enjoyed our meals. As stated in other reviews... read more

Saw two roaches while in the front service area. When I brought it to their attention the staff was rude to me and obviously didn't care. Having roaches in any restaurant is disgusting. We eat out all the time and it is very rare to see roaches in any halfway decent restaurant. I placed a call to the health department... More

Please read this before going to this restaurant. Just left Poistano’s a few hours ago and couldn’t wait to write this review. We sat in the back and the waiter asked us what we wanted to order and as I started to talk he walked away and had a conversation with the table behind ours. I knew right there that... More

Right next to HMART, a Korean supermarket in a typical strip mall in Long Island lies an unassuming pizza joint with a great restaurant inside in the back of the pizza place in front. For many years I gotten pizza from this place and enjoyed their pies alot. They are fresh, well made pies with a chewy crust and they... More

Delicious food, large portions & excellent service. What more can you ask! The fish plates looked and tasted great. My chicken was so tender, it almost melted in your mouth. Our appetizers both hot and cold and desserts were great too. Staff very attentive and prices were worth the meal. Easy to get to means we will not hesitate to... More

An associate of mine told me that Positano was the best Italian restaurant in this neighborhood so my wife and I thought we'd try it out. We ordered the Fried Calamari as an appetizer. Both my wife and I agreed without the side of tomato sauce, it lacked taste. My wife ordered the chicken francese, which she said was OK,... More

We go here every week on Friday night and we love it. I have experienced great Italian food from little italy to Rao's. It is the best and the people are all so nice. This is not a place for people who want to be regarded as more impressive, successful, or important than they really are. It is just a... More

My husband and I have grabbed slices here before and found their pizza to be really good. We decided to try something different and go there for a sit down dinner on a Friday night in February, rather than to our favorite italian place nearby. The dining room was small and crowded. When I ordered my pasta, I requested it... More
