“Brilliant Food”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Me and my wife ate here and had a terrific meal. We went to one Italian at the top of the hill but they said they had no tables available and outright refused to say if we could wait, very rude but the Villa Positano were brilliant. With it being Easter most restaurants were fully booked, as was the Villa but the lady who served us (I think she was the owners wife) said they were fully booked and then asked us to wait a moment and said if we wanted to wait up in the bar we could be seated in around 30 minutes and we said that was fine, in fact we were seated within 10 minutes
We had a 3 course meal which was beautiful and delicious and very well priced, this was an amazing Italian, and the profiteroles were stunning
Very highly recommend eating here, next time we are in the Lakes definitely be going back

“Good atmosphere but the food was of poor quality”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

The staff were good, the atmosphere was good but the food was disappointing. The food came very quickly considering we'd ordered lasagne, which was very bland. The dessert had been bought in and not made in house too. Overall I wouldn't be going back.

“Fantastic birthday meal”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

We stumbled up Villa Postano whilst meandering throughout Bowness, the menu looked interesting with a good selection of vegetarian dishes for my partner. We checked trip advisor shortly after and booked as the reviews were. Very good.
This was a great choice the starters were tasty and the mains better still, my partner said her pizza was one of the best she had ever had. We finished the night on a high as desert was fantastic also.
All I can say is well done keep it up and we'll see you next time were in Bowness
