Recently our group had a dinner outing, with 17 in attendance. When we arrived, the table was beautifully set up with white tablecloth, utensils, glasses, etc. The servers were very courteous and efficient, without being frenetic or pushy (not easy to do with 17 at once). The menu offered a nice array of choices, and we all were very pleased,... More

We traveled to Positanos for lunch and were all most pleased. My mother got lasagne, a big beautiful cut with nice sauce. My wife got the shrimp and scallops with marina sauce. I love linguine and white clam sauce and intended to are that. The waiter brought wonderful bread and I asked him what I should order....the clams or ala... More

The family that runs this place are actually from Positano. This is their more upscale restaurant (they also have Elizabeth's Pizza). Mostly good Southern Italian dishes including seafood. I had raviloli stuffed with sausage & broccoli followed by a generous portion of veal marsala. Eggplant bruschetta, mussels in red sauce, crispy calamari for appetizers. Food consistently good If you are... More

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.
