Back in NJ visiting family - asked our hotel for a good local Italian restaurant. They recommended Positano which we loved! Arrived about 8:30PM during the week and still had many customers. It seems like a place locals visit which is always a good sign - even ran into someone we knew from years ago there. Service was wonderful, owners... More

Positano is one of my favorite restaurants. We live nearby and it is our "go to" place for take out. I've enjoyed lunch, dinner, take out and catering from Positano. While they serve traditional Italian staples, they also have a very imaginative special's menu - it is the only restaurant my husband will order veal. My favorite dish is the... More

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
