Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I live locally and have been visiting Positano semi-regularly for almost two years. I take family members who are visiting me here in London, I take my partner, friends from work and honestly just about anyone who will come just as an excuse for me to eat here at this point. My most recent visit was for a double date night with friends, having booked ahead we tucked into three courses each and ate every last morsel! Not only is the food incredible but the prices are affordable, putting no one out of pocket for a pre-Christmas date night when our purse strings are at their tightest. This cozy, authentic Italian restaurant has an incredible atmosphere suitable for celebrations, romantic nights and casual evenings. The food is yet to disappoint, continuously delivered piping hot in a timely manner. (Most importantly, it's always delicious.) Furthermore, the staff are incredible every time, the waitresses continuously recommend great dishes and provide excellent service. I cannot think of any negatives about this little diamond on Ewell street, but I would definitely recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment as tables are limited.

I had a lovely meal with my family at Positano. Staff were incredibly friendly and attentive, the food was delicious and affordably priced, lovely selection of wines and cocktails. Atmosphere has a lovely warm, authentic Italian feel- could be straight out of Florence or Rome ! A glass of Limoncello was a lovely way to finish of the evening. Would thoroughly recommend, 5 stars !

Perfect: delicious food, wonderful host, clean and tidy, the personal touch. Weekend away with our two children aged 9 and 12. Saw the reviews and thought we’d try. It was lovely - even when booking you could tell it was a special restaurant. The hosts were attentive, the food was amazing (my 12 year old said it was the best spaghetti bolognaise she has ever tasted) both kids had clean plates! Hubby said Lasagne was delicious and I had the Sea Bass Limone which was served with the tastiest rosemary potatoes. I’m wanting it all over again already! Then with the Covid situation at the moment you want to feel safe. This restaurant delivers that too! Great cleaning and you can tell they take it seriously not just a tick in the box exercise. Overall a brilliant place and if I’m ever close enough to go again - I’m definitely going back! Thank you Positano!

Great little independent Italian restaurant with a cosy but lively atmosphere. Great service from the staff, attentive and friendly. The food was excellent, particularly the bruschetta starter, we had pizza which they kindly substituted toppings for us. Also the wine was reasonably priced. Would definitely go back and recommend to anyone looking for an authentic Italian restaurant.

We visited here on a cold windy Tuesday evening, the start of my wife’s week of Birthday celebrations! Food and service was perfect. Sardines to start, then pizza, lasagne, meat balls, no complaints from anyone. Pizza I had was excellent, lovely light base and nice and spicy. Desserts good too. Highly recommend, proper home cooked Italian food.

My positives coming out of the pandemic are zooming family and friends, having the kids home from University and discovering Positano. It’s a delightful taste of Italy that’s makes me smile. The food tastes really fresh and you can tell it’s made with care and passion. If you like Italian food and you enjoy tasting the layers of flavour from each ingredient then you will love Positano. Definitely worth giving it a go!

Been looking forward to this for soooo long!! Ordered pasta and pizza takeaway yesterday and I wasn’t disappointed. “Mamma" Positano was there to greet everyone and as always she was so lovely and I can’t wait until we can go back and eat in the restaurant. Good job guys

Was full when we arrived, not having booked and so they took our number and said that they should have a table within the next 30 mins. 20 minutes later we had to quickly down our drink at the Prince of Wales pub up the road as they phoned to say that a table was now free. Food was excellent, having both chosen pasta dishes. Service was great with no pressure to hurry and felt very much like a family business. Will definitely be going back to sample some of the other dishes, all of which looked excellent and all at a reasonable price.

Ordered a takeaway for my Birthday ! We all ordered the pizzas which were really delicious along with some garlic bread. I had some cheesecake for dessert as I don’t like birthday cake . Ordered and picked up really efficiently thank you very much

So glad we came across this little gem. Usually dining in Kingston, we decided to have a look for an Italian restaurant we haven’t been to yet. The restaurant was very busy (Saturday night). We were told by the lady manager we might have to wait a little but longer which was nice rather than keeping us in the dark. For the quality of food we got, we wouldn’t mind waiting hours. The best gnocchi with wild mushrooms I have ever eaten! Very cosy atmosphere and friendly staff. Can’t wait to be back 😊

Food was absolutely fantastic, particularly the special arancini. Awesome customer service, reasonably priced and the menu had so many options we struggled to choose! If you are looking for an authentic, family run Italian then this is the place for you. Cannot recommend this place enough, we will be back!

Had another wonderful night at Positano for my wifes' birthday treat. A genuine, family run Italian restaurant that just gets better every time we visit. The family have worked really hard to make this place one of the best restaurants for miles around. Lots of Italians eat here! The food and service are second to none. I would recommend you give this place a try. Moderately priced with excellent food!

I cannot tell you how pleased I am that this lovely, family run, Italian restaurant is once again open. We were there last night and the welcome we received hasn't changed; it really is one of the most welcoming places to eat! The food was up to its' usual high standard; I had the sea bass and was well impressed! It seems funny being sat in an Italian and being far away from everybody else, but, social distancing is a must for everybody. It will not be long before we return!

Love this traditional little neighbourhood Italian. Super friendly staff, good food and buzzing atmosphere. We had to book for a 6pm Friday night slot and the restaurant was full. Highly recommend.
