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

I think I would have enjoyed this more if it had been less expensive. I did not think it was any better than Carrabas or Macaroni Grill, yet it was just as expensive. The menu was very difficult to read. The font was extremely small. The antipasto salad was very boring. It had entirely too much lettuce and not enough... More

Been going here for a while... very comforting place. The Stromboli is unforgettable. The prices are a little high for what you'd expect at a place located in a strip mall, but the service and food are entirely worth it. No student waiters... service is significantly better than what you would find at a chain establishment, and the food is... More

Came here to celebrate a family birthday while in town for another function. Wanted something that was not a chain and had atmosphere to it. This was highly rated so we gave it a try. It is located in a strip mall, but once you enter, the Italian atmosphere is immediate. Service was exceptional, as was the food. Very nice... More

Another one of the solid, if not spectactular, Greensboro restaurants we'd not visited in a while, so headed there today for lunch, and after the lunch, we still fill the same - generally solid, consistent food, with the exception of the Rotisserie Chicken which is way above that, it is excellent. The restaurant is rather small, a little dark, a... More

Was looking for relatively inexpensive Italian food close to the Greensboro Science Center and came across Positano's. Upon arrival, we immediately noticed that the restaurant had a very home-y atmosphere and it felt like an actual Italian cucina. Our server was fantastic, always stopped by whenever we needed anything, gave us some background on food and drinks, and was willing... More

This restaurant serves the best Italian restaurant in town. The Chicken Carbonara is wonderful. The veal dishes are excellent! The wait staff are knowledgeable about the food and provide excellent service. The decor is pleasant and clean.

This restaurant is always busy, so we thought we would give it a try. The service is great. A bit tight between tables and a bit loud. The drinks were quite good as was the bruschetta. Bread and dipping oil great too. But the main meals were disappointing as are many Italian meals in this area. The chefs simply do... More

This is a small Italian restaurant tucked away in a shopping center. The restaurant was not busy when I went and my party was quickly seated. After looking over the menu, I chose my typical chicken parmigiana. I would say it was pretty normal fare and the portion size was large. Overall, if you are looking for Italian this is... More

My husband and I were here last year and we were disappointed. However on this last visit we were surprised. The food was definitely better as well as the portion size which was my biggest complaint last time. I don't know if the owners of the establishment read these reviews but I do have a suggestion. Please include the salads... More
