Some years since our last visit ... and it still has the same warm and friendly atmosphere. Some of the portions are rather huge, but always tasty. If you haven’t yet been, you won’t be disappointed.

The menu did not offer Italian actual food. The calamary entree was not properly seasoned. Will not come back to the restaurant looking for italian food….

Conveniently located on Tampa Road in a small shopping center with plenty of parking. The restaurant offers great food at reasonable prices. Traditional Italian dishes are available as well as steaks, chops and fish. Excellent !!!

We had a 4:15 reservation. It was a Birthday dinner. We waited 40 mins for our drinks. Once drinks came we ordered and waited 1 hour plus for the food to arrive. 4 out of the 5 meals were delivered. I had to wait 5...more mins till the last meal showed up. The food was dry and over cooked. The waitress never came back to ask if everything was okay. Never asked to refill our drinks. This was not the 1st time we dined there. Worse than Olive garden this time. What happened?More

Went with family for my birthday celebration last week and everything was wonderful! The bartender was our server, taking care of all the drinks at the bar and our table as well. He kept up the hustling pace with a smile and made our night...most enjoyable. I had the veal saltimbocca and it was delicious!More

Thanks to all the positive reviews, I was genuinely excited to be having dinner here. Unfortunately the experience was below-mediocre on just about every level. I was seated immediately and received my appetizer (fried mozzarella) within minutes- off to a good start, although things quickly...went downhill. It took my waitress 15 minutes to realize I wasn't given bread, and another 15 minutes to bring it to the table, all while ignoring my empty water glass (which she continued doing throughout my meal). When the food arrived almost an hour later, my chicken parm was boring and rubbery to the point of being inedible (not something I can usually say about chicken parm because it's difficult to get completely wrong). Perhaps I experienced Positano's on a bad night but I don't feel the need to return. My search for good Italian in the area continues.More

The decor is Arabic carpets on the wall...which is weird for an Italian restaurant. The food- My shrimp pasta was absolutely flavorless. The steak was supposed to be medium rare but came out well done, and my daughter's seafood pasta was bland, at best. The...bruschetta was made with some sort of crushed tomato mixture in instead of nice large diced pieces, which we were hoping for. The stuffed mushrooms were stuffed with crumbled pizza sausage and topped with a flavorless cheese. I so wanted to like this place but the food was so subpar, we won't be back.More

The food was the only part of the experience which was acceptable, albeit barely. All other aspects of the dining experience made for a forgettable evening. You name it, they failed at it. Worst dining experience we've had in a long, long, time. You will...find far greater value, far better service, and much better italian food (at a fish joint!) less than fifty yards away. You can trust my reviews, I don't throw shade unless it's warranted!More

Opening statement: We KNOW Italian food and Positano's was no disappointment. My Lady had the veal picatta and I the frutti de mare. Both dishes excellent! With dinner we enjoyed a very nice Santa Ema Merlot as well as a bottle of San Pellagrino. Our...server, James was right on and very efficient. We will DEFINITELY return. AND, NO KIDS!!More

At times you don’t expect to find good food in a strip-shop mall. Not the case here, it was a great meal. The server, Vera, was outstanding. With so many restaurants using COVID as an excuse for poor service, Vera was a welcome change. I...got lasagna and a Caesar salad, with anchovies of course! Everything as great, as was the cannoli I got to go. Great meal and service.More

Went for the first time to celebrate a birthday. What a pleasant surprise. The food was great. I had the fiocchi appetizer and the lasagna. Both were great. The place was busy but the wait staff kept up. I will definitely dine here again.

We are fortunate to be surrounded by many great restaurants. Positano’s is right in the upper crust of those. Lynn and I went with friends. I had the Seafood Pompeii , bass filet broiled with lump crabmeat on a bed of fresh vegetables ($27.00). It...was outstanding. Lynn had her favorite Italian dish, Veal Parmigiana ($23.00). Everything was not and delicious. Great Italian ambiance. James, our server was exceptional.More
