Love the pizza!

As many times as we have been to this restaurant, we've never had the pizza. Man were we missing out! Great brick oven flavor with fresh ingredients!

My kids loved their marinara sauce and meatballs. Bread sticks were awesome. I had the pesto special with shrimp & chicken. It was fabulous. My husband tried the smoke chicken ravioli and it was amazing. Kids rated the cannoli dessert the best they have ever had and they know cannoli. Nice wine selection and good service. We will definitely be... More

Greensboro's best kept secret. It is on a strip mall and one would not expect to find such a great Italian restaurant . I was greeted by hostess immediately. Reviewed menu- decided to have dinner. Excellent server who I learned later was the bartender. She makes a perfect "dirty martini". I ordered the Sampler plate, thinking I would have leftovers.... More

We have eaten here many times and it is always great! The service is also good and our waitress was very attentive. Try their chicken or veal dishes; outstanding. Fairly good wine selection too. One thing we did encounter has nothing to do with the quality of the food or service. We support our local school by purchasing several of... More

Travelled to NC for a track meet. 8 of us had dinner here together and all of us enjoyed our meals. Good service, cocktails were good. Kids enjoyed their meals. Everyone was happy! Lemon martini was yummy. Caprese salad was great too.

My wife and i ordered dinner here with no high expectations being that it was in a strip mall but we both wanted Italian. I ordered the veal Marsala with a side of spaghetti with a rose sauce cause i never like the house marinara sauce and my wife ordered gnocchi's with the house marinara sauce. Mine was very good...

We were out for dinner this past weekend during the ACC tournament and were desperate to find a restaurant with a wait of less than 2 hours. I called ahead to Positano and they had us seated within 30 minutes. The waiter was awesome and the food simply delicious. Positano was as busy as I can recall and they made... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time at our dinner. Observing others in the restaurant; they were too. I believe we used a coupon from our "Attractions" book. We listened to the specials offered for the night, but chose to order off of the regular menu. There are lots of choices, but if you need any help deciphering them,... More

The worst pizza I have had in a long time. Comparable to CiCi's. I at least get my money's worth at CiCi's. Very bland... I could have made a better pie at home and next time I will. Very disappointed

We recently took our two grandchildren out to dinner at Positano and had a lovely meal. The pasta and meatballs were excellent, as was the pizza for the kids. My wife had the Veal Marsala and I had the pasta Carbonara. Both were quite good. Also the garlic breadsticks were great. The service was also excellent. We plan to visit... More
