We met another couple here for a casual dinner and left VERY impressed! The food was excellent, the service was superb and the ambiance is very comfortable and quite beautiful!! There was absolutely no pressure to leave our table. We stayed for almost an hour after dinner just chatting it up with old friends. The owner/manager even brought us a free shot of limon liquor before we left. It is a true Italian-style restaurant. Laid back and very easy to have a great time. We will be back many times, I'm sure!!

We (my wife and I) dined at Positano Ristaurante Italiano on a Saturday evening in April. We were promplty seated in a very comfortable corner banquette in an elegant dining room. We had a superb waiter who did not rush us, which is not the norm in Washington area restaurants. Our meals were superb and reasonably priced. In all I would have to say the evening was a delight.

I think about the veal piccata even when I'm not at the restaurant. And the fresh vegetables that come with it are done to perfection. When friends and family are in town, Positano's is our first choice. We've dined there on New Year's Eve, Grandma's birthday, graduation, and any other excuse we can come up with. We are always greeted in a friendly, even humorous, way, shown to a comfortable table, and waited on very professionally. The staff are always there when you need them and yet they are never intrusive. The arrival of dishes is well timed, and there's a general air of organization and efficiency. The ambiance is that of a excellent neighborhood restaurant in Italy, and it's a wonderful place to drink wine with friends while browsing the menu and to linger over coffee and dessert after dinner.
