The entire experience was fantastic besides our server. He was very rude and seemed completely disengaged. I’ve never had a bad experience here and was shocked when I received service that was subpar

Server was amazing, food was good (I was expecting the pasta to be a little more flavorful), company was amazing and I can’t believe we spent so many hours there. I had no idea how late it was when we left because of how much fun we were having!

This was my second time eating at Positano Coast and the ambiance is amazing. It was early in the day, more like lunch time, but it was peaceful just being there and the food and service were amazing. I will definitely go back soon.

Always good food. Just wish people knew how to act when they are in a restaurant and use their inside voices.
No need for screaming and laughing loud.

Positano Coast is a very nice place. It’s more pricey than say the Olive Garden for similar cuisine, but consider where it’s at. The food was tasty with high quality ingredients, but the portions could have been a bit larger. I did receive a parking ticket for accidentally parking in a “valet zone.” That could have been made more clear by restaurant staff. Coming from the PA suburbs, trying to understand city PPA regulations is confusing at best and at worst downright infuriating. Overall, we did enjoy the restaurant.

Positano Coast is one of Philadelphia's hidden gems. The food is always wonderful and the cost of a meal is very reasonable. Any item on the menu that has seafood in it is highly recommended, especially the octopus. I ordered a seafood salad as an appetizer. The salad arrived in a small bowl, yet it was stuffed with seafood - octopus, calamari, and shrimp, marinated in a lemon sauce. My entrée was lobster ravioli. Three delicious squares of pasta stuffed with lobster in a bandy cream sauce was simply delightful. Add a glass of red wine and you have a perfect meal. The service was exquisite. Our server was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. As for the atmosphere, you will start to believe you are dining at the Almalfi coast in Italy. For a superb meal in a lively restaurant with prices that won't break your budget, check out Positano Coast.

Disappointed by the quality of some of the food. By past reviews, I was anxious to try what was described as delicious. We were fortunate to try the Chef's Tasting menu. It was a good value, even though food wasnt great.

I would recommend it for dinner, not brunch. It was noisy and the music was too loud. We had to shout to hear one another. I also felt the service was rushed.

We were sat right across from the entrance to the kitchen. There was a ton of noise and it was impossible to hear our dining companions. We had one elderly woman who was very upset she couldn’t hear. The food was okay, I’ve had better burgers and fries elsewhere. I would not return.

We celebrated my birthday and my daughter’s birthday. The grilled octopus and artichoke is my favorite item on the menu. They make risotto like it’s an art. We arrived early on a busy Friday night during restaurant week and the staff was able to seat us before our reservation time. The table was picked ahead of time for our special occasion. It was perfect and tucked away from the crowd.

We went for Restaurant week. The food was very good with the exception of the fish of the day dish. It was flounder stuffed with crabmeat. My friend said it was not very tasty. Otherwise everything else was wonderful. I had the Pasta Bolognese dish oh, it was a nice size and very very good. My other friend had the salmon dish which was excellent but very small. However with the bread, appetizer and side dish it was enough. The desserts were excellent, would definitely go again!

The entire experience was very frustrating. We had to ask for our server once we sat down (waited over 10 mins before we did). Once we had a waiter he seemed very frazzled and overwhelmed. We asked for forks twice, no one ever brought them to us so we grabbed ones from another table. Meatball appetizer was raw. I think the worst part was there was no acknowledgment from the server or the manager that this was an unfortunate circumstance and no apology for the terrible experience. The meal took us over 2 hours, for only 5 of us. Even though the food was good, I’d go somewhere else because there are so many great options in the area.

Food was delicious. Fresh salmon over pesto risotto. So fresh! Arancini were small but many. Very creamy. Loved the outdoor seating area in old city glory. Bottomless mimosas! Creamy lemoncello- very different.
