Just walking through the door, you can sense you're in for something special! The ambiance inside is so romantic and charming, but the wait for a table outside was definitely worth it! The staff is inviting and attentive, without being overbearing. However, the Star of the Show at Positano's will always be the food! My favorite is the Veal Piccatta, but everything I've tried is beyond excellent! Probably shouldn't say this, but the food is so good, you'd think it would be more expensive. Value is so rare these days. If you haven't tried this place, you don't know what you're missing!

This is an excellent staple of the Italian community in Washington for more than 30 years. The menu is very traditional old school Italian. My family and I have been eating there regularly since its opening and never had an underwhelming meal. The quality and service have always been consistent. It is deservedly known as the go-to place in the Italian community serving as a reliable eating spot for Italian church functions, weddings, christenings and other events. My family and I have introduced friends, co-workers, clients and bosses to this restaurant and never received any bad feedback - with many of them becoming regulars themselves. An excellent stopping point.

Positano is my family's favorite Italian restaurant - with many many choices in the Bethesda area Positano is always first on our list for fabulous Italian food. The food is always delicious, the service great and the ambiance delightful. The tomato sauce rocks!

We had our holiday party there on 12/03/2010 and it was an absoulte disaster . The restarurant is decorated nicely, but that's it. Food was horrible and I do not know how someone can call that Italian restaurant. They just microwaved frozen food they purchased at Giant or Safeway.
I do not remeber having such a bad service in my entire life, it was the worst ever . Waiters were extremely rude and unprofessional, did not want to take order for one of coworkers "since she was late and they were very busy". I would never go there again. Thanks God, there are many other options in Bethesda.
