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

Great BYOB off the beaten path in Plainsboro. The indoor seating is a but stuffy in the summer. The prices are reasonable and the quality is excellent.

When I go to New Jersey, I always want to eat here as the food is delicious. This time I had the chicken parmesan and it was delicious. You have to bring your own bottle of wine as they do not sell it at the restaurant. My niece had the shrimp pasta that was excellent. My husband had the salmon... More

After leaving a doctor's appointment, we were looking of a place for lunch. We cam across Positano, and as we were peering inthe window, the owner came out and offered to show us around and provide us with a menu. We decided to stay and ordered lunch. I enjoyed my minestrone soup and the fresh bread, but the good news... More

This is one of my "go to" restaurants because they always have a lot of seafood specials on the menu. The seafood is always good and they will modify the meal for your specific tastes. The pasta is always good, chicken is very moist, pizza is very good and plentiful but the veal is sometimes tough. The menu is extensive... More
