I am sorry, but I have to agree with the previous review about this restaurant, which we also found to be very poor. We have been visiting Bowness regularly for the past eight years (it is one of our favourite places). Over this time we have made friends with some locals and to state this is where they "all" eat is simply not true.
We visited the restaurant during the summer months. I ordered a pizza and what they served could only be described as mediocre. My partner opted for veal and this was simply disgusting and hugely over-priced for what was served up. The accompanying veg was awful, overdone and unimaginative. When we made our dissatisfaction with the meal known, the staff had a "couldn't care" attitude.
To state that anyone who criticises Villa Positana knows nothing about food or drink is a bit arrogant. Over the years we have eaten in many restaurants and bistros in and around Bowness, along with some of the locals we now class as friends. Based on our experience we will not go back to Villa Postana, nor would we recommend it. Opinions can only be based on experience and unfortunately not only was our food poor, but the attitude of the staff only added to what all in all was a huge mistake. However, you learn from experience and as there are so many good places to eat in Bowness, we still love the place.
