Shout out to the fantastic service crew, they were very attentive and friendly. Checked-in with us to ask how the food was and apologised for the wait for the food when it hasn't been too long. They had to go up and down the two...floor building to serve as well. We ordered the Calamari Bites, Whole Boston Lobster Fettuccine for 2, Lamb Shank, Passionfruit and Peach tea, Skywalker and the Lava Cake. The food is in huge portions, is very fresh and delicious. The lobster and the seafood are very fresh, they also kindly provided utensils to help with extracting the lobster meat out. The Lamb comes off the bone easily and is very tender. Mash potato is also well done. The Lava Cake is also amazing, not too sweet. Will recommend and come back with friends next!More

Even though he knew my son couldn’t make it, he gave...us a small cake to celebrate. Thank you Chris & Positano for making our 1st visit an awesome experience. Food is amazing too! Will definitely come back!More
