I have gone to Positano for years with my parents and now my own family, enjoying dinners in the restaurant as well as doing take out, but have recently found the quality of food has declined and the service the worse I have ever experienced. This last experience was my last. It is clear that this family owned business is... More

This is a neighborhood gem! Everyone we take there loves the food. The restaurant in the back is always packed but often noisier than I like. The portions are huge and the food is really good. You can definitely share entrees.

My family orders take- out pizza from Positano all the time. Pizza is consistently good. It is usually ready for pick up 20-30 minutes after you call. We ate in the dining room only once and will most likely be our first and last time. We just did not care for the food at all. We ordered baked clams as... More

I was looking for restaurant within 15 minutes of Great Neck for an impromptu family gathering. I trusted Yelp on Positano in Williston Park since I had never been here and it's not near my home. I made reservations for 5 of us with Josephine, who was so friendly and efficient. Ralph, our server, and staff accommodated our every needs,... More

Family owned and operated. Tough to get in on a weekend. Pizza is consistently good. Try the fried zucchini appetizer.

Adjacent to H Mart is a wonderful pizzeria that has one of the best pizzas in an area overloaded with pizzerias.

Best coffee here! But I didn't come here for coffee. We came here for lunch because they offer fantastic lunch specials. To enjoy lunch specials, you have to eat-in. Hubby took home some food from here for me to try before and I approved! Now is the time for us to sit and eat at the place. The interior decoration... More

My family used to eat here once a week, but we moved away many years ago and I hadn't been back in awhile. Well, I recently had the opportunity and it has not changed a bit!! Owners so friendly, staff treats you like family and the food is so good. I won't wait so long in between visits. And the... More

We have been eating here for many years and I'm sorry that I didn't get around to writing this sooner. I guess I take the place for granted. Small but comfortable dining room on back of great neighborhood pizzeria. Let me be brief.. Friendly attentive staff. Very good food. Enormous portions, as in order 1 dish for 2 people. Everything...

High recommend the primavera pasta and primavera pizza. Everything is delish! Easy to find vegan options too :) We go all the time as a family.
