Much more than a pizza place. Be prepared to wait 15 to 20 minutes, worth the wait. Veal Positano is a favorite of mine. The garlic knots are terrific.

We enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner in a fun family restaurant. We waited @ 10 minutes to be seated at height of Friday night rush but the time went quickly since the hosts were fun and entertaining! The wait servers were attentive and everything from appetizers, main course to dessert tasted wonderful. We will definitely return next time we visit... More

The food was tasteless. I got the pasta with broccoli and sausage. If it didn't have sausage, it would taste like nothing. The wings weren't good and neither was the bruschetta. I went here because it had gotten such rave reviews but I was extremely disappointed. I wouldn't go here ever again.

The food here is consistently excellent. Eggplant Rollatine was exceptional. Complimentary garlic nots are a nice touch. Service is prompt and efficient. Definitely worth a trip!

This is a conveniently located and popular Italian restaurant with plenty of parking (located in a strip mall). I have only eaten in the restaurant though they have a large take-out/delivery business too. I enjoy a spicy and flavorful sauce and tend to always order the Pasta Lorraine Amartregiana. I enjoy the garlic knots served with the meal as well.... More

Recently, we had a real nice sit down dinner at Positano. We didn't order anything fancy, just two plain pizzas. They were quite good and we took the leftover slices home for the next day. The only small negative is it tends to get loud in here, so if you want a quiet place, then probably not for you.

We were visiting family from DC and stopped in for dinner. Everyone was welcoming and the food was fantastic. I ordered seafood pasta, loaded with mussels, clams, and calamari. The pizza was kid friendly. I do recommend a reservation, at least on weekend nights. It was packed!
