Great getting back to Positano Coast but disappointed that their happy hour is only until 5:30. Tough for those of us who work!

I love this restaurant. It’s so beautiful with all their new outdoor space. Food is always delicious. Hostess was amazingly sweet and accommodating. Bartender and waiter service not so great this time. Not very attentive or friendly.

I ordered a cocktail from our server when he came to greet us. He returned with water, and then took my colleague’s drink order. We waited. And waited. And then our server came and took our food order. He told us our drinks would be up shortly. So, we waited. And waited. And waited. Many cocktails came and went to other tables. I noticed food was being delivered to tables that were seated after we were. They all had drinks. And their food. Our server paid attention to other tables.

Then our food order showed up. I flagged down our server who wasn’t really interested in our table, it seemed. I inquired about our drinks. He said he wasn’t sure why they weren’t out yet, and he’d check on them. We were out of water. He didn’t refill it.


When we were about finished with our meal, our cocktails arrived. He apologized and comped our drinks.

The food was delicious. The atmosphere is superb.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The diver scallops, chicken parmagiana, and eggplant parmagiana were excellent. Service was slower than usual.

We had a pleasant dinner at Positano Coast for some family visiting from out of town. It was very busy and noisy inside so a bit challenging to hear each other. The food was very tasty and the service was good.

Food was wonderful , calamari appetizer and risotto with seafood was delish ! Service was great except the hostess completely ignored us and checkedin people behind us Also had to wait 20 mins after our reservation to be seated. I saw them sit several couple before us that arrived after we did and set up a table for another couple while we waited.

The pasta in the spicy vodka sauce was very good but the Chicken Parmesan was less than memorable. The tomato sauce was bland. They served no bread with dinner which was surprising for an Italian restaurant. Doubt if we’ll return.

Wonderful food, great service.
I didn’t really like the ambiance, at least not for dinner.
I would reccomend for brunch or lunch. I personally prefer more of a bar/ party vibe for dinner

We were happy enough with the service and the food, however, the place is noisy despite being socially distant. I hate to think how noisy it could be once they push on those 2-tops an elbow's length away from each other and large parties are seated nearby. Also, don't linger after 8:30 because the staff starts moving tables and chairs and resetting all the tables for the next day's service. Really broke whatever ambience there was.

We had a lovely dinner here and the service was great. Always love Positano and we go often. I mistakenly ordered the burger and the beef was rancid. Totally inedible. I had to have the waiter remove it from my plate because the smell of it was unbearable. I eat burgers several times a week. Have never had a rancid burger before. I made dinner from the eggplant we ordered plus the fries that came with my burger. My friend's crab cake and caeser salad was excellent. I hated writing this review as we regularly go to Positano so this was really shocking to have something so off. It is a great ambiance, terrific staff. This was hopefully just a singular issue..

Good evening, I apologize your burger was not delicious, as expected. Unfortunately the server did not make anyone on the management team aware of the issue and we did not have any other complaints about the beef that day/evening. I did alert the chef but again, I apologize for the burger not being what you expected. Please feel free to ask for me next time you are in. Thank you again for your continued patronage.

Went for happy hour on a Tuesday and it was great. The restaurant is airy and at 5 pm it wasn't crowded. Our waiter was extremely kind and personable and we were seated on a little patio with a few tables. We tried the lamb sliders, spicy calamari, salmon focaccia, meatballs and to drink, the lemon drop. Everything was excellent, especially the lamb sliders...we started with a double order and were tempted to order more! Will definitely be back.

It was my first time here and I will absolutely be coming back. My server Matteo was funny and delivered great service. I loved the diversity of the staff and how incredibly helpful and attentive everyone was. When I asked one of the managers where the bathroom was, he actually took me instead of taking me. And the food and drinks were INCREDIBLE! 12/10 experience all around.

Good modern Italianish food. Unbelievably high noise level - what’s the point of going to a restaurant if you can’t hear your partner across the table? Problem seems to be a combination of a big space and no noise deadening materials.
