  • "I went while visting the area on business. The food was good but the decor was outdated. The atmosphere, took away from the experience for me."

  • "Quaint smaller family Italian restaurant that provides diverse menu with a variety of casual and complex dishes. Daily specials. Fresh ingredients, attention to detail, attentive wait staff combine to make an enjoyable dining experience in a casual atmosphere. Will continue to return to enjoy their many delicious options."

  • "We chose Positino because it was convenient, reasonably priced and had a seemingly diverse menu. Had a bit of a wait despite reservations and not much space provided for waiting; staff did keep us updated. I was starving, so I got a ceasar salad to start. it was a large portion so I shared it with my husband but was quite disappointed that the parmesan cheese was the cheap powdered (flavorless) stuff. My husband got the lasagna and I was surprised at the tiny portion but he said it was good. I got the Alla Marinaio (shrimp and mushrooms sauteed in a pink cream sauce over pasta). It was a huge portion but 90% noodles. The sauce was so incredibly bland and I had to hunt for the shrimp. Finally packed it to go to spice up the left overs."

  • "Oftentimes, restaurants positioned in a strip mall are nothing special. Not this one. They serve very good Italian dishes at a reasonable price. Well worth the trip."

  • "We were there for the first time for an early lunch on Saturday. Wait staff was awesome with information about the menu and very friendly. Food was really good. There wasn't a crowd so it felt more like a neighborhood gem that a "happening" hot spot. Would definitely go back and even plan a large dinner get together with friends/family."

  • "I actually eat here as often as I can. I live approx 30 miles away but it is by far the best Italian food in the triad, in my opinion and the service is always perfect as well!!"

  • "First time going to Positano was with my girlfriend for Valentines Day. This turned out to be one of the best value meals I've ever had. Started with a 1/4 bottle of prosecco and the roasted peppers and mozerella. My girlfriend ordered Gnocchi gorgonzola, the sauce was delicious. I ordered chicken francaise with a side of spaghetti and marinara. Generally, when a dish comes with a side of pasta, it's just a nice extra. But this side was no "extra." The marinara sauce was amazing. I ended up purchasing a jar to take home following our meal after chatting with the owner. We then proceeded to dessert, 2 cappuccinos, 1 slice of limoncello cake and spimoni ice cream, both very good. The bill was dropped and the total was only $98.00! Amazing!"

  • "The restaurant was nice. How ever the food was just a little bland. Besides that everything else was nice. Great server, fast response."

  • "The service was very good. There was nothing we needed to ask for. The food was good, had a very unique flavoring and was very enjoyable. Prices are very good! Would definitely recommend to friends. And my wife and I will be returning for other nights out as well....."

  • "I am a vegan and often have difficulty eating in Italian restaurants. Not here. I was able to get the plant based protein that I needed from the beans in the minestrone and the nuts in the salad and entree. The pace of serving was excellent, not hurried as in some restaurants. The food was fresh and the wait staff was not freaked out with special requests to avoid cheese or to add vegetables. Our first visit, but we will be back."

  • "Our small group of 9 experienced excellent service and food. We were able to talk around the table. We appreciated not having to talk over loud music, dishes being removed and other background noises. Hopefully our presence did not interfere with others experiencing the same pleasant dining experience. Our server was outstanding. Thank you. We will return"

  • "This is a wonderful Italian restaurant with a cozy neighborhood feel. The restaurant was packed on New Years Eve but the service was incredible as was the meal. We started with amazingly tender mussels served with buttery garlic croutons in a garden fresh marinara sauce which I highly recommend. I ordered the veal with mushrooms and walnuts in a creamy Marsala sauce which was incredible and my husband enjoyed the house mixed seafood dish. I highly recommend this small gem owned."

  • "The holiday had been very business so we decided to see a movie and then grab some dinner. We have always liked Positano but have not been in a long time since it is not close to our home. I had the Seafoad Special and my wife had Lobster Ravioli. Both were very good. The service was good considering that they had several large parties. We got stuck in the middle of the room with people running all over us. That's ok since it was in fact New Years Eve. I hope to go back when things are a little calmer."

  • "Looking for Italian food with that "neighborhood Italian" feel? Look no further than Positano in Greensboro. Our table was ready when we arrived, and our server gave us the right level of attentiveness and responded to any questions. Positano is always reliable and comforting, just what is needed for a nice night out."

  • "Our family loves Positano. The Chicken Marsala and Chicken and Veal Franchese are family favorites and are absolutely delicious! The bread is wonderful and they offer good wines and beer. You can't go wrong with this menu. Our waiter, Jay , provides great service along with enjoyable humor. Don't miss either the Tiramisu or Lemoncello Cake as a perfect end to a fabulous dinner!"

  • "Me and my wife ate dinner here one night while visiting my parents. It was our date night as they babysat our daughter. Although I grew up close by, I was not familiar with the restaurant or the area. I was a little skeptical of the location (strip mall/plaza/shopping center) but was very pleased with the selection. The environment was nice and casual. In the restaurant were families, group outings and couples such as ourselves. The service was excellent as well and the food was pretty tasty. And all for a relatively good price. I wouldn't compare this place to a five-star fine dining establishment, but this was definitely a good dining experience."

  • "I took my boyfriend out to dinner for his birthday around 845pm on a Wednesday night and when we arrived at the restaurant, there was NO ONE there except the staff which was PERFECT for a romantic dinner! Our server Tracy was wonderful, kept our bread basket and wine glasses filled! We were able to have a great conversation where we could actually hear each other without extra restaurant background noise! The food was delicious (I had the Alla Pulcinella Fettuccine and he had the ChickenPositano). Amazing dishes! I would definitely recommend this restaurant for friends/families and couples! They have a great wine selection as well with very good prices!"
