I stopped in for a quick bite on a Tuesday evening, and was warmly greeted. I chose to sit at the bar and was served by an absolutely lovely Italian woman. The food was spectacular - I had the calamari and shrimp, followed by eggplant rollatini. The waitress/bartender - I think Rosa Maria was her name - made me feel... More

Positano is so old school it's like stepping back in time, and that's a good thing indeed. Wonderful traditional Southern Italian food, terrific (and terrifically friendly) old-world service, and warm, charmingly old-fashioned decor. All the food was delicious, but the spinach egg drop with Tortellini soup was my absolute favorite. Very good wine list, of course. The entire experience was... More

I have been eating at Positano's for many years and never been disappointed. Their food is delicious (the Dover sole being filleted table side is always fun to watch). The service is unflaggingly courteous and attentive. And the ambience is low key and casually elegant.

Christopher our waiter made our visit special. His knowledge of the wine and food and attentiveness to our every need was exceptional. We were two steps past heaven when we finished our meal.

My boyfriend and I dined her in late April 2016. We arrived around 5pm (place opens 5pm) so it was not busy. Waiter Ryan was good and seemed to know the ins and outs of the items on the menu that needed some explanation. We both ordered off the specials menu - Dover sole. There were no prices on the...

The first time we went to this restaurant was on a sad occasion. My sister and her husband and I went during a time when we knew our brother was dying and they knew that they were not going to see him alive again. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated at a comfortable table in the most... More

I had high hopes for this place and the atmosphere was really great. We ordered what we though were vegetarian dishes, but one came with timy, almost invisible pieces of meat. The other, the waitress assured us was vegetarian, but it tastes and smelled like ground beef. Either they used beef atock in the sauce or they didn't wash the... More

I never understand why I wait when I've made a reservation. They confirmed via email and text. So, they knew we were coming. We arrived 7 minutes early for a 6:45 Christmas Eve reservation. We waited until 7:00 to be seated. We waited for a waitress... we waited for bread... we waited... for our check... She promptly arrived to collect... More

I had a coupon from Restaurant.com for Positanos and I finally got to try it. It's very expensive, so unless it is s special occassion or I had another coupon, I may not go back. The food was very good. We tried the appetizer with smoked salmon, mozarella cheese, arugula and capers (maybe it was a salad??) I mentioned we... More
