“Great service and food”
Reviewed June 3, 2011

Stumbled upon Villa Positano while we were looking for somewhere to eat. Glad we did - the service was fantastic - they were very welcoming and attentive throughout the meal...and the food was yummy!

“Good atmosphere, friendly staff and great Italian food”
Reviewed April 29, 2011

Not sure where some of the reviews are coming from here. This place does what it says on the tin. Good solid Italian food at a fair price served in a friendly manner. If you're looking for Michelin stars this isn't the place, if you're after Trattoria type food, good pasta etc then this place fits e bill perfectly

“bellamissio!!!!”
Reviewed April 28, 2011

We were staying in Bowness at a top notch hotel, with a top restaurant (another nice story). For our last night, we fancied eating away from the hotel. A daytime trawl around the local establishments revealed a dearth of our type of restaurant.

Positano was a possibility however, especially after a recommendation from our waiter, but we were almost put off by reviews.

Imagine our surprise at finding top notch food, service, atmosphere, wine and price. We could not fault it and wonder at some of the expectations of previous reviewers??
