“Awesome food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

We have eaten at Postiano for brunch, lunch and dinner. The food is always great and the service is excellent. Our favorite includes Sofia Loren pizza ~ burrata, prosciutto, arugula, eggplant, artichoke, zucchini and their handmade pasta dish. Don't forget to finish off with their Mamma’s Tiramisu

“Wonderful Italian offerings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

Great spot for a nice dinner. We started with a well prepared charcuterie with fresh burrata and yummy wild boar ragu crostini.

Specials included linguini with ok truffles. Pollo Milanese was very good. Nice wine selections.

Do order the nutellino for dessert. Enough for four to share. Dinner with two bottles of wine for four was $400

“Memory Lane to Positano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Great local neighborhood restaurant. Chic, small, lively without being too loud. Staff adds a personal touch by being super friendly and accomodating. Food quality is solid each time. Authentic Amalfi coast dishes that are prepared with a modern twist. We have been there as a couple, with our kids, friends and family even our dog, and each time had a wonderful dinning experience. They recently opened the restaurant next door, so on a busy night the staff will make it work by seating you next door and bringing the food over from the restaurant. It has become a regular trip for the family to go dining there. For the kids, don't miss the Nutelino dessert, kind of a sweet pizza with Nutella inside, a must for my kids.

“A Taste of Southern Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

Excellent restaurant with amazing authentic Southern Italian fare. Enzo and his staff are awesome. I've been here for brunch, lunch and dinner. The menu seems to change seasonally If you have a gluten intolerance, Locanda Positano offers gluten-free pasta and gluten-free pizza. The vegetarian gluten-free pizza and Sophia Loren gluten-free pizza are a must try! The Buffalo Mozorella, beet arugula salad, Octopus Salad, and octopus carpaccio are my favorite items! This place is always packed so be sure to make a reservation.

“Authentic Italian food in San Carlos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Had a great lunch here with a friend last week. Everyone was extremely friendly, and all staff spoke Italian (that's when you know the place is authentic!). We both enjoyed a simple spinach salad with burrata cheese and fresh peaches with a balsamic reduction dressing. Nothing too special, but it was very tasty. Then we shared the Sofia Loren pizza: thin, crispy crust topped with mozzarella, zucchini, eggplant, arugula, prosciutto, artichokes, and burrata cheese. DELISH! this place is a must-try.
