Locanda Positano - San Carlos
We love this place, a trueWe love this place, a true trattoria atmosphere in the original Italian concept. Have come back several times, whenever we are in town with family business. The food is high quality and quite close to ingredient combinations such as we have experienced on our extensive travels in Italy. Staff is friendly and professional. The place is always busy so reservations are a must for dinner hours. It is also noisy but in a good way. We have also had lunch here several times and loved it just as much.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had seafood salad, MinestroniWe had seafood salad, Minestroni soup(fresh and excellent), Pasta with Boar ragu, pasta with Italian sausage, special pasta with Chicken and sundried tomate---all very good. Our favorite dessert is Nutela!
Renzo is always very friendly and taking care of his customers with his heart and appreciation. He brought zucchii flower fried with M Chees. reminded us of Rome.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodExcellent menu choices, tasty, beautifully presented, original, fresh. Service is friendly and knowledgeable, non-intrusive yet attentive. Bar can be noisy even at the prime time for lunch. Music isn't necessary all the time. I'll be back, but I'll eat early. Next time I'll eat dessert.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMProper pasta, seafood, and wineI am not a fan of large chains and when I see the owner working the room I have a better feeling about the restaurant. I have come several times and I always see them working the floor and greeting tables. You know the staff in the kitchen are not going to try to butcher grandma's recipes with a watchful eye. The noise level is a little loud for intimate dinners but a great, vibrant atmosphere great for small groups or for catching up. It is a nice mix of twenty somethings and forty pluses who are mostly child free but children would be fine (it is noisy but the wait time is a bit longer for your food). It isn't a big place and it is always bustling. I haven't had a bad meal. Modern vibe and friendly waitstaff try to make you happy.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything great!Staff is friendly, Service is wonderful and food is yummy!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality of menu is very closeQuality of menu is very close to what we have experienced in rural Italy when traveling on our own. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Place is very noisy but up beat. Reservations recommended for dinner.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThough it was great to beThough it was great to be able to sit outdoors to eat on a warm, sunny day, the tables outside were uncomfortably crowded.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Energetic atmosphere.I've eaten at Positano a couple of times and really like the food. It is very good and flavorful Italian food with creative menu items that are very tasty. The staff is energetic and friendly. It's a small place, so it's a bit crowded inside. Each time I've been there, there's either been something that is on the menu that is no longer available or different than listed, and twice now I've ordered a specific wine off the wine list, and they've substituted something else (more expensive) saying that they're out of my original choice. I keep going back, since these issues aren't significant enough to stop me from going there or miss out on their great food. I recommend giving it a try for either lunch or dinner. You won't be disappointed.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI have always enjoyed PositanoI have always enjoyed Positano for a casual dinner at the bar. This time we had an excellent Sunday brunch with friends! Great good and service and they even brought a complimentary nutella calzone dessert for the table at the end of our meal. We'll be back.2/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
