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

My brother and his family just moved to Wayne. They picked Positano for dinner this evening. It was great. The atmosphere is very cozy. The staff are very nice and accommodating. The give you complimentary bread that was delicious! The portions are very large. I ordered the Meatball Parmigiana sub and it was huge. I also tried the pizza...very delicious... 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!

The food is very good. The roasted pepper appetizer is great: they're homemade, not from a jar. Most everything is good. Be careful to review your order before you hang up. The person who takes the phone orders inevitably misses things.

We stop at Positano for a sit down dinner every now and then. Their pizzas taste real good when you get them hot out of the oven. They also have some tasty salads.

This restaurant is in a strip mall and their Italian food is very good but the tables are very close together and it is very loud as it is always very crowded. The prices are very reasonable and it is a BYO so if you do not mind noise this place is a good value for your money.
