There's a reason Positano has been a mainstay, go-to restaurant for over 20 years. It's consistently excellent and busy every night. Service and food are outstanding. I eat here regularly and take guests from out of town.

A friend and I had a pasta and the Cornish Hen. The staff were very attentive and provided great recommendations. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The sauce served with the table bread was creative and delicious. Excellent meal.

This place comes across as casual and unpretenscious but the food is first rate. Menu is fairly basic but complimented by a selection of well-crafted principal dishes. Highly recommended.

There is no good excuse for an Italian restaurant to make people find they need a switch from Italian food. There are as many kinds of Italian food as there are pasta. In some ways, we shouldn't even talk of Italian food, since it is...More

Everything about this tiny restaurant is superb. From being greeted and treated like their best customer to the service, to the food, it was an excellent dining experience. We both had the braised lamb shanks and, as I told the waiter to pass along to...More
