We are always greeted with a smile when we come to this restaurant. We have been here many times as its local to our area. The Italian food is delicious and there's quite a bit of variety to choose food. The kids love the kids menu and is a great place to come and dine with family and friends!

Regular customer at this venue and never disappointed. Friendly and efficient staff, consistently high quality food and pleasant environment. Had lunch for a birthday this week and all above still great. Thanks to staff and highly recommended.

We both enjoyed our meals. Mine was a delicious grilled chicken breast with prawns in a creamy Dijon sauce on rice and my husband's veal scallopini. They and my strawberry crepes were all very nice indeed. Pleasant family atmosphere and friendly staff topped off a very pleasant dinner out.

Positano ticked all of the boxes throughout the meal, the welcome was great the service was fast and efficient and the food was really top notch however I had to take away points as the service felt like we were being rushed out the door and the waiter took a half filled glass of cider with the dishes which I...

Came here with my extended family for dinner. Prices were typical for a "family restaurant" $4.50 for a glass of soft drink. You can buy 8 times as much for half the price at your local supermarket. Pasta Carbonara $20 Could make it myself for 5$ But whatever that's economics for you. We had 2 waitresses. One was very polite... More

Went for a group meal pre Christmas. We had a set menu with choices. The price and food quality was very good and the quantity served up was enough to fill the most hungry person there. I will certainly be going back for another helping sooner rather than later!

Service could of been a bit better. I ordered rib eye steak. I was expecting a big thick steak but it had been cut in half and you still pay the same price! I have food intolerances and they were obliging with my needs.

Attended here with my partner and a few friends on a Saturday night. The place wasn't very busy however the service was still quite unattentive. We say for quite a while before we were offered any chance to order anything. We got some bruschetta pizza and aranchini balls for entree. The bruschetta pizza did not deserve to be called bruschetta... More
