Right in the heart of the Old City this will remind you of the Amalfi Coast, especially if you get outside patio seating. Reasonable prices and both appetizers & entrees were delish. Looked like a nice Happy hour too. Recommend.

Although there were plenty of main dishes to choose from, I decided on a couple of appetizers for more variety. The two of them were tasty and more than enough for a full meal.

Excellent spot to grab a bite and a few drinks. Very cool decor and beautiful multinational crowd. Love the Sunday brunch. Must go for brunch. Dinner menu is a little difficult unless you are adventourous.

Why settle for an ordinary atmosphere when you can have an extraordinary one? Enjoy the beauty of the Amalfi Coast in Italy right in Old City. From the cobalt blue floor, to the spectacular life-sized postcards to the inspired menu, when you step into Positano Coast, you will need to catch your breath. We welcome guests to savor a menu full of delicious selections, including the freshest fish & seafood, the must have "Crudo" (the Italian version of sashimi) & creative variations of classic Italian pasta & meat dishes.
