Had a family meal on the Friday that was that good we had a takeaway from them on the Sunday. Nice family place to eat up stairs and down. We will be visiting again at the end of November for sure

Last Saturday me and my family went here for my daughters 18th. It is located down a fairly busy alleyway and tucked up another alley which transports you too this family owned Italian in Bowness. The service was fast and not pushy, all staff were really nice and made sure we had everything we needed. Food was lovely, i had a Hawaiian pizza, which was not the normal ham and pineapple as it also had salami on. Tasted so nice. Thin crusts nice and crunch with the soft margarita cheese. All the food we got looked and tasted lovely. The pate on the starter menu was also lovely which came with warm toast. Wine was a bit pricey but we didn't mind as it was a special occasion. At the end the restaurant also sung happy birthday to my daughter; they dimmed all the lights and put on a really loud happy birthday song where everyone joined in together was really nice of them to do this. The staff also brought out a profiterole with chocolate moose out with a candle for her.The whole meal came to a reasonable amount of money for the top quality food we had eaten and we were all full up.
Will be coming again to this quiet but lovely Italian.

We recently had the opportunity to dine at the Villa Positano restaurant in Bowness. It had come highly recommended by other tourists which met in the Lake District. We had a delightful meal and the setting was casual. The food and service was excellent and would recommend it to anyone visiting Bowness - Windermere. It is a family owned establishment and wonderful value. We had a full three (3) course meal for two (2) including drinks (i.e. wine, sparkling water, coffee ) for approximately £44 total.

Me and my friends came for a meal last night for a friends 18th. We were sat upstairs and thought the service was very poor, made no effort to make us feel welcome. A waiter opened the window above our table and dirt fell on the food and all we got was an apology and a not very sincere one. We thought that we should of been asked if we wanted the window open as seen as we were sat under it AND it was still raining. I have sat downstairs in this restaurant before and felt very welcome, so I highly recommend that you sort your staff out that we're working upstairs. The woman waitress was very rude and just dumped our food on the table. We were very disappointed as we have been before and have been impressed, if I come again I will be requesting for a table downstairs.

Enjoyed a pleasant meal on a busy Saturday evening. Great starters and main course with a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio. Waitress was attentive service efficient and we were in and out in just over an hour to get on with our Saturday night in Windermere without the kids.
