Always a favorite of ours for years, the staff will cater to special needs and are always helpful. The food is consistent, and you can always look for specials on seafood of the night.

My daughter and Son-in-Law have been to this place many times and recommended it. On this night we were doing the take out thing. The inbound call was promptly answered and the courteous young lady accurately took down my order and repeated it back to me. She said the food would be ready in 20 minutes, and guess what, it...

Bruchetta was horrible with what seemed like expired vinegar/ingredients. Pasta and sauce only so-so.

Nice ambience in a strip mall restaurant with excellent Italian offerings. Good wine selection . Ravioli special in light tomato cream sauce was outstanding. Cannoli was a worthwhile finish

Positano's has pretty good Italian Food. And their pizza is good. But tonight I placed an order to go. They said 10-15 minutes. I went in at 20 minutes. I could tell right away that they did not have it. One person said that she would check on it. The other rang me up full price, nothing more said. After... More

We have eaten here several times over the last couple years for lunch. Every time we go the food is good but the service is lacking and our lunch takes 1.5 to 2 hours. I am not sure why pasta and salad should take so long. They are usually busy for dinner but lunch is usually empty, I think that... More

Yet another Americanized Italian restaurant. If you are looking for true Italian taste, this is not the place to go even if the food is quite good. Heavy on the sauces and not necessarily using fresh ingredients.

Positano is one of those rare finds where food, service, ambiance all come to together for a perfect dining experience. The marinara sauce was superb ...... visits to so many other Italian restaurants over many years, both nationally and internationally; few have come close or compared with Positano's. I should add the tiramisu was done to absolute perfection. We look... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. Food is always fresh and taste delicious. Service is also great. For great Italian food with a quaint atmosphere I recommend this restaurant- you will not be disappointed.

Nice casual family style italian restaurant. My favorite dish is the trio of lasagna, ravioli and eggplant parmasian. Nice wine list and excellent service. I cook a lot of italian at home but when I go out for italian I go to Postitano!

Thank CtownRon
