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.

Took friends to my favorite place in Palm Harbor, Positano's. They were very happy with the meal, the place, and the wait staff. Started with the sautéed calamari and even one of us that was doubtful of calamari scarfed it down. We each had a different entree and all were very satisfied. Wonderful, friendly owner/hostess and Jerry doesn't disappoint with... More

Positanos restaurant serves fresh, authentic, Italian dishes. The eggplant rollatini is the best eggplant dish I have eaten in the Tampa Bay Area. Light and not overly fried. You actually know you are eating eggplant and not heavy breading. The pasta was good and not over cooked. The desserts sounded great but I was too full to indulge.

On some nights here they have live music. They are only open for dinner. I came here for my birthday in February and decided to come back a few months later. The sangria we ordered was pretty good and 2-4-1 because it was happy hour. My friend ordered lasagna and was very pleased with it. The salad was good too.... More

Apparently I've driven by this place for years and never knew it was here. Tried the sausage pizza (app), filet mignon with gargonzola, veal parmigiano, lemon cheesecake, and flour less chocolate torte. All was great and the service was attentive, friendly and kind. Food was served quickly and hot. A bit pricey, but we sat in the back room which... More

Probably wouldn't make it in New York or Chicago, but by Tampa standards it is pretty good. Nothing exceptional. If you have never been to a great Italian restaurant, you'll love it.

Went last week for our wedding anniversary. As I'm writing this, I see a couple of not so good reviews on the right side of my screen. I cannot fathom what they are talking about. This place is the best. In fact, I said to my wife during dinner, "We should eat here every week." I had the chicken Parmesan,... More

We visited Positano's on a Wednesday night around 6pm. We sat at the bar and were greeted by a bartender that didn't seem happy to have another guest...I say this because for the hour or so we were there, this guy didn't smile once, didn't introduce himself or ask us our names, didn't make a suggestion or ask if we...
