A small group of us came for dinner and all were very pleased with what was ordered. The chicken alfredo with broccoli and the shrimp and scallops were two dishes that were very well received by our group. There was lots of fresh bread with an oil and herb mix to dip it in and butter was offered as well.... More

The food is always good at Positanos but what makes it exceptional is the friendly staff. Jeff and the folks there treat you like family. They make the experience memorable.

It was our 42nd anniversary so we decided to go back to Positano - were not disappointed! The food was excellent and the waitress (Rebecca) was very courteous and attentive. I tried the Carbonara and it was out of this world - my Wife had the Scampi and it was also excellent. It was a fairly busy night but the... More

Recently our group had a dinner outing, with 17 in attendance. When we arrived, the table was beautifully set up with white tablecloth, utensils, glasses, etc. The servers were very courteous and efficient, without being frenetic or pushy (not easy to do with 17 at once). The menu offered a nice array of choices, and we all were very pleased,... More

We traveled to Positanos for lunch and were all most pleased. My mother got lasagne, a big beautiful cut with nice sauce. My wife got the shrimp and scallops with marina sauce. I love linguine and white clam sauce and intended to are that. The waiter brought wonderful bread and I asked him what I should order....the clams or ala... More

I had raviloli stuffed with sausage & broccoli followed by a generous portion of veal marsala. Eggplant bruschetta, mussels in red sauce, crispy calamari for appetizers. Food consistently good If you are... More

Always a favorite of ours for years, the staff will cater to special needs and are always helpful. The food is consistent, and you can always look for specials on seafood of the night.

My daughter and Son-in-Law have been to this place many times and recommended it. On this night we were doing the take out thing. The inbound call was promptly answered and the courteous young lady accurately took down my order and repeated it back to me. She said the food would be ready in 20 minutes, and guess what, it...

Bruchetta was horrible with what seemed like expired vinegar/ingredients. Pasta and sauce only so-so.

Nice ambience in a strip mall restaurant with excellent Italian offerings. Good wine selection . Ravioli special in light tomato cream sauce was outstanding. Cannoli was a worthwhile finish
