Ordered one Margherita and one Prosciutto pizza. I can't believe they call it pizza! Horrible! Nothing on either pie, bland, hard thin crust that wasn't edible. $14 each "personal size". Ended up taking frozen leftover pizza out of the freezer to eat. Not sure about the rest of the food there. If that was an indication we won't be going... More

The fish and seafood dishes are always fresh. Veal Parmesan is also An excellent choice. Pasta is a must...very tasty!

I visited this location 10/16/16 and was waited on near the bar with a large birthday group. Joe gave us awesome service (apparently that group goes there often). The food was delicious and the ambiance excellent. I would go back again!

I agree, it was ok only. The food was tasty though. I had the chicken marsala & it had a very good flavor but it had big slices of garlic in it. Not very appealing. The veal was also very tasty. Not much of either entree. It came with angel hair pasta but only a small amount. However, we were... More

I was disappointed as I had heard good things about Positano's. It just isn't nearly as good as Casa Ludovico. The menu was blar, food just ok, wine options unexciting and the ambience nice but nothing special

This is a family owned small restaurant in Palm Harbor that makes you feel like you are in Italy! The food is delicious, from the pizza cooked in their stone ovens to the delicious lasagne. They have a full bar and music on many evenings. It is a relaxed evening where you wish you wore elastic waisted pants!

I was visiting friends in Palm Harbour and this is one of their favorite Italian restaurants. We had reservations and were seated immediately upon arriving. Our server came to our table quickly after we were seated and took our drink order. We order the antipasto appetizer which was great. At our table, we ordered the lasagna, tagliatelle, chicken arrabiatta and... More

Disappointing experience all around. We made a reservation...but the girls at the hostess stand talked between themselves for several minutes before even acknowledging we were standing there. Eventually....we did get seated. We ordered appetizers (mussels and clams) which were good. Not great. Not awful. Then we ordered dinner. And two hours after we first walked in the door, our dinner... More

Positano's offers a wide variety of Italian food. Nice setting, centrally located on Tampa Road between US 19 and Eastlake Road. Entertainment on the weekend.
