Locanda Positano - San Carlos - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
We were celebrating our sons Bday and came to Positano restaurant. The music they were playing was so loud we couldn't hear each other talking. The food was good but our server was so strange he made us super uncomfortable. I couldn't hear his name but he was from Naples Italy had curly hair. Would never return because of him😩
The food and service was wonderful. Like most places any more the noise level was off the charts. Go early if you want to hear yourself talk. At twilight I'd avoid the window table by the door. The sun was uncomfortably in my eyes for 20 minutes just when our food arrived.
Happened upon Locanda Positano on Open Table when originally looking for a pizza place close to our hotel. We were absolutely thrilled! We ended up not ordering pizza but instead shared the charcuterie tray & the gnocchi ( the waiter even split it for us and let us get different sauces) and then we each ordered dessert. Everything we had was absolutely delicious; we will recommend Locanda Positano to anyone traveling to the San Francisco or Redwood City area.
We love This restaurant and have supported the brothers since we first met them at their restaurant Aqua Paza in San Mateo. We since moved south and only go out for a special occasion. We are never disappointed with the food and service, though the dishes have changed a bit since we first became patrons.
I found Locanda Positano when I was on a Biz trip in Redwood City and I was tempted by the pics to go there. I am from Italy and it's very difficult to find such an authentic italian place in US! Food is amazing, done at the italian way of the south (Napoli): worth to try the pizza, scialatielli with clams, zucchini flower with mozzarella and the fried squid! I have repeated the visit twice, to try more food. Well done!
We loved the food. It was like dining in Naples. Very authentic and delicious. Only drawback was the noise level. They need a quiet room for more enjoyable dining because the food warrants it. Right now it is geared for the noisy noisy bar crowd with loud music.
Wow, I don't know where to start.
In the world of restaurants, I am not too picky.
I suppose it spoke volumes when we arrived before our reservation and were told we'd have to wait until a table for 2 opened up. No time frame. We walked up to the bar . No space. When we did order , the waiter walking by , had to return and ask again for our order. The locals that we sat next to laughed, and said we'd be lucky to get a table at all; even with a reservation. Later , at our table , no one came to take our order. Our drinks were empty. No one noticed. When we did order - the food took forever. Order was mixed up.
Not sure I'll ever return.
I wanted to try this restaurant, because their other restaurant in Danville is top notch. Huuuuge disappointment:(
This is a fun place. The food is very good Cal-Ital with a very authentic Italian component. The wait staff seem to be mostly Italian, and they are friendly and inviting. It also seems to attract a good number of local Italians - always a good sign. The wine list is also quite good but not extensive, featuring some fine CA and Italian bottles and glasses. I especially enjoyed sitting at an outdoor sidewalk table, watching the world go by on a beautiful evening.
Lucanda Positano is one of my favorite go-to restaurants, but unfortunately, the food was not up to par last Saturday night. On the recommendation of our waitress, I ordered the short ribs, which came out dry and uninspiring, I forced myself to eat half of it, but couldn't do the rest. I was honest with her when she asked how it was, and after apologizing, she came back to tell us that she had deducted it from our tab. We were totally floored and very impressed. (If I'd sent it back after first bite, I might have hoped for it, but this was beyond what you would normally expect at the end of the meal.). So despite this one misstep in entree, I will still come back again. Next time I'll order a home-made pasta dish, which never disappoints. By the way, this isn't the first time their excellent customer service has impressed, but it's one of the reasons why I'll keep coming back.
We've been here a few times, but very disappointing experience this night. Very high noise levels, tables close together, hard to have a conversation. Appetizers arrived long before drinks. Meals did not come out together, for us or for tables around us. Food not very good.
Only good thing was a delicious complimentary lemoncello at the end.
