The atmosphere in this restaurant is bright and cheery. The staff is very nice. The menu has lots of variety. It is such a convenient location after seeing a film across the street. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!

We went here for Restaurant Week and where deeply disappointed and didn't find it worth the 20 dollar lunch. We had poor service where with the changing dessert selection, the server didn't tell us what it was, we overheard him telling another table after they asked that it was Panna Cotta and Tiramisu. All of the food was very medicore, it just wasn't as good as we were expected. It seems like it would be a fun place to get a drinks in the summer but we wouldn't go back for the food. The drinks weren't good enough to come back for either.

Came during restaurant week, the service was quite mediocre. Our server didn't know even the basics like bringing water or knowing when to bring out check. Even when we gave him our card right as he handed us the check, it still took 20 min for him to come back. I understand it was restaurant week but we came at an early time--there were still a lot of empty tables by the time we ended.

The food was absolutely delicious. Their saving grace.

The place itself was a bit toned down than what the images online appear to be but that was ok I love the splashes of blue on the walls

This restaurant was outstanding ! Amazing service, food and wines. We highly recommend the ceviche and octopus as appetizers. It's in a perfect walking location in Old City Philadelphia.
We are going definitely back

Positano Coast usually is excellent. On this visit, I take a few points off as it wasn't up to standards. Service was okay, but waitress always seemed in a rush with every interaction. I had the branzino special (outstanding). My wife had the branzino filet on the menu (it was poor - over cooked). The cauliflower fritti also was excellent.

This was our third trip and the food was great. We had the lemon and artichoke soup and the calamari to start. Both excellent. The main courses were good although my wifes veggies were cold. She had the Mahi mahi and I had the seafood risotto. We finished it off with the cheesecake. All in all an excellent meal (besides the cold broccoli) and a good spot before the show.
