If you need an attractive, warm restaurant to have lunch or dinner, this is the place. Good food and very attentive waiters.

Recommended by a friend with a house [yes] around the corner, Nino's Positano could not have come with a more effective local endorsement! And the ristorante delivered: nice cucina italiana - I chose the tortellini carbonara, w a glass of their chianti which was good, and the service was smooth. My principal waitress had an interesting accent so of course... More

Food is pretty good. This my second time and ordered a pizza again. . This time the quattro formaggi. . The cheese was to strong for my taste however the pizza in general is awesome. Great service as well.

I recently dined for the first time at Nino's Positano. We went for the lunch prix fix menu and it was an excellent experience. Working in the area it is very easy for the price of lunch to go well past $25 per person without all that comes with lunch at Nino Positano's. The mozzarella cheese in the mozzarella appetizer...

I've been going to Nino's for lunch for a number of years now, and it has never disappointed me. The service is professional and always welcoming. The menu is so big (if you also count the many daily specials) that it's always difficult to choose. To start with, the breadbasket with the delicious farmers bread with olives in spicy olive...

I'm always exploring Italian restaurants in New York, and have been going to the original Nino's for years, so when I had to take a meeting near the UN I tried for Nino's Positano. Solid place, the meatballs are awesome, but what I really loved was the veal chop with mushroom rosemary sauce- sooo good!!! What got this place 5... More

While eating here with a friend of mine, I asked him why I thought the pizza was so good, and he said it was because they don't use sugar in their crust. He spent several years in Italy, and is a native New Yorker, so I certainly respect his opinion. Nevertheless, I found the pizza to be very flavorful, with... More

This restaurant serves the worst pizza in N.Y in my opinion . To add insult to injury, they also charge about a $35.00 corking fee when we brought our bottle of wine for a personal celebration. The manager was also very arrogant.

It is a quiet and charming restaurant. Service is good, but the food is average only. Soup is very good (Cauliflower puree is light and tasty). Main courses we order lobster seafood pasta, Dover sole (fish) and chicken special, all from special of the day. Lobster tail in seafood pasta is overcooked, and sauce is a little too salty ....

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge at the Waldorf Astoria and it was a superb recommendation. The favourite choice for our group of 8 was the seafood linguine from the specials of the day.......it was awesome. Fab food, really good service and pleasant ambience. One for a return visit next time we are in NYC.
