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

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

We have been here a number of times, and we have decided it just is not that good. Yes, the pirtions are huge, but the salads are cold nd unappealing, and the food is not tht tasty. The service is also inconsistent, st best. Dont bother.

This is a regular place for me and my family. My mom and i frequent this restaurant if not every week, every other week. It's the perfect little Italian restaurant to go, eat good food, relax and enjoy a bottle of wine. The staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. Their spinach salad is delightful, although I suggest having it with... More

Live in the area and there are a lot of Italian restaurants. This is the best Italian food in the area. Only down side is it can get crowded in the close space.

This pizza place in the Herricks Shopping Center has a lovely dining room in the back. The food is delicious. Be sure to get the little garlic rolls. The main courses from thaditional dishes to broiled fish are all tasty. My friends raved about the coffee.The service is great. Look at the bottom of the lunch menu. I think it... More

Pizza and pasta is great. Portions large. Unassuming shopping center locale but don't be fooled. This is the real deal!
