Positano Coast by Aldo Lamberti
Fabulous octopus....the bestFabulous octopus....the best yet. Delicious pastas and you can get them in 1/2 portions. Beet salad was very tasty.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing and FUNThis was our first visit to Positano Coast. Although we were early for our reservation after sightseeing and they were able to seat us promptly. The atmosphere was light and relaxed. We had a wonderful dinner after spending some time in Old City and seeing the historic sites. Wonderful food! We liked the fact that they had 1/2 (small) servings of pasta for some of the seniors in our group who don't eat a lot. Service was prompt and very friendly. Server had just the right amount of conversation without being overbearing. Our Mussel appetizer was wonderful and easily could be shared with four people. Cocktails were delicious - especially the Margaritas! The Manhattan was also excellent. We'll be back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfetto!Delicious food, professional service and a perfect night to dine al fresco. My family and I couldn't have asked for more.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWent with girlfriends on aWent with girlfriends on a Sunday after an event at the Seaport Museum. Short walk to the restaurant on a hot day was a plus. Made reservation, but sat at the bar for the last 30 minutes of happy hour. Nice, attentive bartenders and servers. Those lemon drops are dangerously good. Food was very good. Will visit again.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellentWe never have a bad time here. That's why we keep coming back! The food is great, the service is efficient but friendly, and the outdoor areas have some great views of such a historic part of the city I love. I'll be back in a few weeks with my mother and brother in tow!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch in ItalyAlthough I had been to Positano once before and enjoyed that visit, my recent dining experience for lunch was lovely!
The food was delicious and the service excellent. The beautiful decor and colors seemed to transport me directly to Italy!
I would recommend Positano to all my friends.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPositano Coast - recommendedI've never been disappointed by any of the Aldo Lamberti restaurants, and this was no exception. While the restaurant seems a little out of place in historica "old city" Philadelphia, with its cobalt blue walls and Amalfi coast murals, it is an excellent, airy, well lit restaurant with a good menu, terrific food and service, and a decent, affordable wine list. We sat outside near the bar, and enjoyed our meal. This was a special occasion for us -- 29th anniversary -- and we were pleased with the experience. It was probably not quite as romantic a setting as one might expect, and the acrylic chairs were a little, well, casual, but the overall experience was pleasant. I would return.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the tripWe traveled appx. 1 hour to Philadelphia to visit various locations as we do frequently and were looking for a new place to eat. Wanted to try this restaurant in preparation for our third trip to Italy and we were immensely impressed. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking authentic Italian food in a casual and beautiful setting.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways really GOODWe eat regularly here. Try the Burratta when its available, really good. then anything else on the menu follow suit. Staff is helpful, friendly and very good at their work..5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBecoming one of my favoriteBecoming one of my favorite restaurants. Delicious clean food. Fun atmosphere and beautiful decor. Fair prices.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMreally nice atmosphere, dishesreally nice atmosphere, dishes were very good, high quality, interesting, fresh and not over the top in complexity. Grouper dish was very good, and antipasto, which can be ordinary, was surprisingly tasty. Good, well priced, wines. Friendly service. Could do more maybe to create the feel of the Amalfi Coast, but very comfortable as is.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!Decor aside, it was a lovely evening and we enjoyed the food immensely!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways EnjoyableWe've been many times and always enjoy it; with our ten year old daughter or by ourselves. Great menu and service. This time we had caesar salads and crab tacos to start, then pasta bolonese (very good) and cantaloni, our daughter had pasta with butter. And for desert we shared the cheese cake and some gelato. We really enjoyed it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI have come to love PositanoI have come to love Positano Coast. The food has actually gotten better over the years. Very fresh and well prepared. Had their halibut twice in one week and love the artichoke salad. Also love the frito misto when I am not watching my calories. Very fun atmosphere with lovely views of the historic area. So convenient after a movie at the Ritz. On Friday night it can be a bit noisy especially with the large groups they attract.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat AtmosphereThe atmosphere was great... we were celebrating a co-workers birthday...

The details/ambiance within the restaurant were truly the perfect representation of what our experience was in Positano.
The food was amazing. My wife and I shared the 5 course dinner, which is available Mon-Thur (check the website just to be sure), and it allowed us to taste several different options. Food was flavorful, but not over the top. Our waitress was helpful in picking a wine that went well with our meal. Although, I'm not a wine connoisseur, the wine we had from the Amalfi Coast was perfect.
We will definitly be going back for more in the near future!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEnthusiastic staff and wellEnthusiastic staff and well prepared Italian classis!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a terrific dining experienceWe had a terrific dining experience at this restaurant.
