I love the food at Positano. Their pasta is really excellent, and their sauces are rich and tasty. I would like to see their open area dining partitioned off a little, as the atmosphere is rather noisy and crowded.

We loved the "Neighborhood Bistro" feel. Management was very accommodating and personable. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. Authentic Italian food and affordable, quality wine. We will definitely return to try the different lunch & dinner entrees.

Great Mother's Day
We took a party of nine to Positano's for Mother's Day (with reservations) and had the most wonderful time. The wait staff was courteous and so attentive to our needs (my husband for example never likes to have his glass left empty).
The food was delicious and fresh. Everyone enjoyed their meal and remarked what a wonderful find it is.

Will definitely eat here again!
Recently returned from vacation in Italy. Craving the taste and feel of a "real" Italian restaurant. Heard of Positano's by word of mouth. Atmosphere casual and comfortable. Invited another couple to join us for dinner. We were all pleasantly surprized by the generous portions and reasonable prices. Extremely happy with the dinners we ordered, which included bread and dipping oil. You can order a salad with your dinner for an extra $3.00. I had a ravioli sampler special that included 5 different raviolis in a pink cream sauce, topped with zucchini and shrimp. My friend had the vegie pasta dish and our husbands both ordered the shrimp and scallop dish. Food was fresh and delicious! Can't wait to go back and try some of their other dishes!

Really enjoyable group dinner
We had a group in town and had a great meal. The chicken marsala was great. $3 is a little steep for the cup of espresso, but altogether it was a good meal.

Great family meal!
I booked Positano because there were no restaurants closer to Elon U. for dinner at 7:00 on graduation day. What a lucky find! We had 10 people who all enjoyed their meals: gnocchi, spaghetti, chicken marsala, carbonara, ravioli special, and a trio. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I have two small suggestions for improvement. Less oil in the sauce (for the ravioli special) cook the shrimp less (it was a little tough). Other than that, it was all excellent. The food came out piping hot. The salads and bread were good too. Wine prices reasonable. Our waitress was very nice and good. We had a fun celebration and wish we could go back! But, it's a little trip for us to go there from Maryland. I would highly recommend Positano.

First Dining Experience Here
We were blown away. The food and service were outstanding. We will definitely dine here again. The lemon dessert was superb. Our friends recommended Positano's and we joined them there Saturday for lunch. They love this restaurant, too.

Excellent food, attentive but not annoying service. Small restaurant with atmosphere. The Alla Positano was phenomenal.

We were looking for a good local Italian restaurant that at least had a bar for a pre dinner drink. We were pleasantly surprised the food was excellent and moderately priced. We will definitely be back

Been to Positano's many times
Been to Positano's many times over the past 10 years. The food is always good and the service is always excellent. The staff go out of the way to make you feel welcome. The ambiance is friendly and casual with a nice decor. We took our kids there when they were in their young teens and they still enjoy enjoy eating there 10 years later. Restaurant is generally quiet enough that you can talk at the table in a conversational voice and hear others in your party.
It is a good balance between food quality, price, service, and overall experience.

Romantic Birthday Dinner
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!

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.

As always, food and service
As always, food and service were very good. We took some friends who had never been there and they were really pleased. Its not fancy, but its comfortable with a varied menu.

Our family loves Positano.
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!
