My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience here. The service was excellent and the food and drinks were delicious. It was especially nice that they brought out a dessert to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and did not put it on the bill. We will be back again soon!

Positano Coast always delivers authentic, creative, well-prepared Italian food. There are plenty of seafood and vegetable choices here, and effective, attentive service in a pleasant setting.

We had a wonderful experience! Nicky or just “Nick” to us was very accommodating of my girlfriends gluten allergy. We were concerned we would have trouble finding dishes that were appropriate for her, but Nick made amazing recommendations. He even asked the Chef if he could make the salmon dish gluten-free by not adding the sauce that goes on top. Since we would have never guessed the sauce wasn’t gluten free, we were even more impressed with Nick’s attention to detail.

Additionally, the establishment is amazing. We highly recommend!

Made reservations for 8:30p and didn’t get seated till 9:15p. What was the point of reservations?! No apologies, manager should have bought us dessert or something! Thank goodness our server was competent!

Valentines Day. I just think if you are going to pay the prices charged then you should be a little filled. I had scallops and the waiter said 4 but I got 3 and when I mentioned it they brought me out another one. I weigh 105 and I was satisfied w 4. I wouldn’t have been with 3. My husband had steak and he was hungry when we left. He should have been satisfied. But needless to b say the waiter was ver accommodating. Therefore we had a good time. I do believe your portions should be a little bigger for the price or add a vegetable.

Yes and no. I would reccomend this place for it's outstanding ambiance and atmosphere, but not for food. Unless you like over seasoned, and very strong flavours that not necessarily match.

The four of us each had wonderful Caesar salads. we shared the octopus, cavatelli pasta, eggplant entrees and artichokes, all delicious. Service was great. We sat on the left side of the restaurant and the noise level was very low. We’re there whenever we go to the Ritz 5. Highly recommended.

If you can't make it to the Amalfi Coast then head here!

This Old City gem has been around for years, tucked away on the second floor across from the Ritz 5 at 2nd and Walnut.

Our group of five stopped in here for dinner during restaurant week. The seafood selection is pure Mediterranean fare. The fish and Risotto and oysters and salads and charcuterie are all excellent.

When you walk through the front doors of Positano Coast, the white walls and the deep blue floor tiles immediately transport you to the Mediterranean. When it's warm and the windows are open and the long white drapes are blowing, you almost forget where you are.

Whether I'm having Lobster Fra Diavolo in the dining room or Mediterranean olives and mozzarella in the Sopra Lounge, I always enjoy the experience of eating here.

Overall, we loved lunch! The food was delicious! Our server Martin and the rest of the staff were very nice. The décor is very outdated and needs an update. I am not sure how long the hanging undergarments have been there but by the browning discoloration I'd say a very long time.

We went for lunch during restaurant week. It was not busy at all and the Salmon and Chicken were good. Servers were not attentive as I requested salad dressing on the side and more bread, neither of which happened.

Dined at Positano Coast during restaurant week in Philadelphia. The restaurant week menu only had 2 dessert choices. After finishing our entree we were informed they had run out of one of the choices (teramisu). This was at 5:00 PM, one hour after opening. They offered us sorbet as the only other option. Not very appealing since it was 28 degrees outside. No apologies or other considerations offered.
