You must try this place even if it's just for its hospitality, the guys were great and the food was delicious, we both had the lamb dish, very nice, my wife thought it was a bit tough and informed the waiter he offered to change but instead reduced the price. Excellent service

Simply wonderful. I like good food and find that a lot of places are all talk no substance. But Positano will change your view. The food tastes like good old fashioned cooking at its best. The choice is amazing and quality too. Only suggestion, book your table as they get busy. The word is out. Good food at great prices.... More

Superb evening spent having a family meal celebration for my daughters birthday. We had delicious Italian food with excellent wine and superb service. This is such a lovely traditional Italian family restaurant a little old fashioned which enhances the atmosphere and the warmth you feel when dining there.

We have been to the Positano on numerous occasions, for family birthday celebrations and as a couple. It is wonderful, warm and welcoming and the food is amazing. My partner usually has the calzone and I love their lasagne and carbonara. When you arrive you are shown to your table by one of the friendly staff and complementary bruschetta is... More

A group of us had a delicious lunch. It was good to see that every table was taken, even in the second week of January. The food and service were very good. The Saltimbocca alla Romana was as good as the one we were served in Bologna.The accompanying vegetables, were included ( we dislike having to paying extra for these).... More

Have always wanted to visit here, based on the great reviews but could never rely on my student daughter to book a table in time! We finally visited on a Saturday evening. It was very busy when we arrived and continued to be so all evening. We started with some bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and soon wished... More
