A favourite haunt of mine. Again in a very good location and I love the way the tables are spaced in this place. Sitting outside is also a treat. The food can be better but the service is impeccable. The serving staff is always very polite and smiling and makes you very comfortable. Food takes a little time to come... More

We had a group of 11 eat here and everyone was thrilled with their dinner. Good sized portions, very tasty and the price was very fair. We'll be back for sure.

We finally tried this local Italian restaurant located in Plainsboro Village. All four of us enjoyed our meals, including soup/salad and entrees. Portion sizes were quite reasonable.

My friends and I were spending the night in Princeton and were looking for a BYOB place to eat nearby. We quickly learned that most places in Princeton required a reservation on a Saturday night. I was looking on TripAdvisor for a reasonably-priced, BYOB restaurant that wasn't too far and I stumbled upon this gem. It was less than 10... More

A BYOB! Positano always has fresh fish on the menu with weekly specials beginning on Thursday. Outdoor seating area for nice wearher. My husband likes their veal dishes, esp veal Napliatano; I like their fish and seafood and their pappradelle dishes. We eat there bout 2-3 X a month and often have had large group parties there for birthdays.

Ordered a salad, cheese fries and a sandwich. Sandwich unremarkable, flavorless. Cheese fries pretty good. Salad unedible watery, salad dressing tasted like it was bad. The salad was so nasty I have to throw it out after one bite. I am very disappointed. It's such a beautiful restaurant but food is not good. I'm not going to spend my money... More

The service gluten free and whole wheat pasta as well as traditional pastas. The veal and chicken dishes are always good. Remember to bring your favorite wine as... More
