Diner Reviews
  • "Good food but too expensive for what you get. The add ons and hidden charges are too much. The Caesar Salad is not worth a $5 charge."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We have never had a poor dish at Positanos. Chef's soups are outstanding and never run of the mill types. Our server, Corey, was very efficient, attentive and sharp. He added to our great experience. The owner, Jiska, is friendly, remembers you and is lovely to all guests. We always take house guests there because we have never been disappointed in the total experience. I highly recommend Positano's ...you won't be disappointed."

  • "Friday and Saturday nights they have live jazz music in the bar area. We were seated off in a side room, so we were able to still hear the music. The food and service was excellent, our drinks were never empty."

  • "Food and service was excellent. Our waiter, victor, recommended the soup which turned out to be extra special."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "From the Chianti Reserve to the cappuccino and limoncello cheesecake...Perfect! Our server, Victor, was fantastic and made us feel very welcome. I ordered the Frutti Di Mare w/ Fra Diavola and it was prepared to perfection. This is our 3rd time dining here and each time is better than the last. Thank you!"

  • "Everything from appetizers to dessert was excellent. They were busy for a Wednesday night so we had made reservations which I would recommend. They have some nice private dining areas as we had been there for a rehearsal dinner last year so this was our first time back and just as good as we remembered!"

  • "Dinner was great. we tried the pizza...thin crust..best in Florida. The veal picatta was wonderful. Veey tender and flavorful. Service was outstanding. Julie was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. If you havent tried this restaurant yet..go now!"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The food was good but they brought the wrong order for one of our party. It took 2 hours for dinner to finish and that was without any dessert or coffee. I had to ask the waiter three times for us to receive another glass of wine. The room was really full and chairs were bumped up against each other making it uncomfortable and loud."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Great restaurant; service was wonderful! Food was expertly prepared, served hot, cooked properly Servers are wonderful; very attentive; kept the bread and water coming! Just love this place; keep bringing friends here; recommend Positano's to people who just want to eat at a good Italian restaurant."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We love Positanos and have been going there since the beginning, when it was virtually unknown (and not very busy) Now that it's so popular and not easy to get in on a Sat. night the servers seem to want to rush us . This past Saturday, we could only get a 530 reservation and we didn't mind that. However, our server rushed our meal, possibly in anticipation of all the reservations yet to come. I don't know how to avoid this, but it is annoying."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My husband and I are in our mid-40s and we definitely brought down the average age in Positanos. Not that it is a bad thing. Until, that is, we felt a little dismissed by the staff. We were early for our reservation so we had to wait in the bar. No matter what little nook or cranny we found, we seemed to be in the way of a service person (the bar area was full, but not overcrowded). Although the bar tender, hostess, as well as the server were nice, they weren't overly attentive. Our needs were met but felt like we got the cold shoulder. We enjoyed our food and would consider going again. However, we felt a little shuffled around and possibly overlooked, so we'd probably try elsewhere first. You can't deny that the food was fabulous."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Nice menu with deliciously fresh fish, chicken and soups. They had a jazz trio playing the night we visited. This place gets packed on weekends. I suggest reservations."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Having loved Positano's food, my last few visits left me cold - service was horrendous. 'Don't want to hear - we got hit and are understaffed due to employees out for whatever reason - be prepared. This last visit restored my faith in this neighborhood spot. Service was impeccable."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "My husband and I had escaped the bitter cold in Ct. for the month of Feb. to stay in Oldsmar. WE had no experience with this area,but being of Italian descent and from the North East, we always look for a good Restaurant serving Italian food. We were not disappointed when we found Positanos. Everything from the service to the dessert was what we had hoped to find. WE went three times during our stay. We would gladly return whenever we come back to this area and recommend it to anyone looking for great ,authentic Italian food."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We've dined here several times. The food is always superb. Service was a little slow as the wait staff seemed less than usual. Always recommend to friends..."

  • "Food was great at a reasonable cost. We went there 3 times in 4 weeks. Can't wait til we come to Florida again next February"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Three of us went this week for the first time. .Our Server recommended veal. Two of us had Veal Piccata. One had Veal Parmesan.The Veal Piccata was excellent, but the portion size of veal and the angel hair pasta was surprisingly small. Our 94 year old guest thought the portion size was perfect. My husband ordered Veal Parmesan and his order came with 2 larger pieces of veal and his angel hair pasta portion was more substantial. The bread, olive oil dipping sauce, minestrone soup, and salad with house dressing were very good. Would we go back again? Probably..., because the quality of the food was very good......and the next time we would be more assertive in asking for additional pasta at least!"

  • "Great time. Enjoyed by all and excellent service. Thanks and we will see you soon."

  • "A truly great meal. The seafood pompe was amazing, my wife had the shrimp parm, its not on the menue they made it special and she loved it. The desert special just ended it right. The service was also amazing. We are telling all our family and friends"

  • "We are from Ny and in Florida for a vacation. Looked on line for an Italian restaurant and came upon Positanos. Glad we did we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. From salad to dessert and coffee we were extremely happy with the food and the service was excellent. We were sorry we weren't going to be in that area another day, we would have definitely gone back. We will every time we are in the Palm Harbor area."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Calamari was great, as was the tomato basil and meatball soup. I ordered the angel hair pasta with sausage and olive oil....it was soaked in oil with a pool at the bottom. Getting to the bottom of the dish was unedible at that point. Service was slower than expected for the prices and we never got a second basket of bread that my boyfriend ordered along with refills of our drinks. We weren't that impressed with the service but we don't like to complain or make a fuss so we still had a nice time."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "We were there a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed the food. We took friends this time and they were very pleased with the restaurant itself and the food. If it was closer to them they would return"
