Wife and I went for brunch on a Saturday. It's a nice place, food is good. The scene was mostly 20-somethings taking advantage of bottomless mimosas. So it was a little louder than expected at 11:45am. But tables have enough space between them that it's not a big deal if you're not sensitive to the noise. The staff as a team, which was nice. We took awhile to decide and mutliple servers and a even a manager checked on us while they passed to see if we were ready

The ambiance was beyond amazing. Electric views and an exquisite experience. If you want to travel to another destination but do not have the luxury to do, I truly recommend visiting Positano. It is as if stepping into Greece for a parcel of time.

The service was top notch, our waitress was gracious, personable and all around wonderful. The atmosphere was incredible, and the scenery remarkable. A grand evening

Went out for Valentine’s Day. Looked at the menu online because my wife is picky with food. Got to the restaurant was serving a totally different menu. Not a good experience at all for our night out.

The food was delicious but portions were small. Did not feel that we got a bang for our bucks!

Positano Coast is in a very convenient location on 2nd street across from the Ritz movie theater. A free-standing building with the dining room on the second floor provides an interesting view of this section of old city as it moves around below.
We arrived on a raining Saturday evening for a 6 pm reservation to a friendly greeting at the entrance and immediate seating. Although we were 2, we were seated at a 4 top table located near the entrance of the dining area by a window. Nice.
After 5-10 minutes, remember it is Saturday evening, the server's greeting was friendly. Overall table service was efficient but not particularly attentive. The server explained specials and took our orders for the main course without asking if drinks or appetizers were desired. We requested desserts menus. When desserts were ordered server ran off w/out offering coffee. Overall impression was the server was busy, likely overworked and did not see us as his money table and wanted to have the table open for another party. I can understand as we were a couple seated at a 4 top. That is a restaurant operations issue, not a customer issue. Really, it was the server's loss as we typically order drinks, appetizers, and coffee with dessert when dining out. Being empathetic to the plight of servers, we tip the typical 20% so he'd have made more if he'd been attentive.
The environment was very noisy.
Ordered :
Special: pasta with lobster and shrimp in a red sauce
Sesame Tuna
Vanilla Cheese Cake Dessert
Nutella Crepes
Food was ok, not wonderful. Good sized portions, attractively presented. Pasta seafood had plenty of lobster claw meat and small shrimp although the texture of the shellfish was chewy. Sesame tuna was well-prepared w/ seared outside very pink interior meat, sliced and presented on rectilinear plate appropriately garnished.
Dessert was pretty, Nutella crepes warm and well-filled.
Overall, I am not in a hurry to return and will not be recommending it to friends.

The food was excellent. The server started out strong but when the apps came out disappeared. Our second round of drinks didn’t show up until we were almost done with the main course. After dinner the server was very attentive for dessert and to drop off the check.

The food and atmosphere were amazing. The dishes are small and it’s a little pricey, but we’ll definitely be back for a nice occasion, and happy hour for sure. We really enjoyed our experience. The service was great, too!

I had dinner three evenings in a row at Positano Coast (Jan 30,31 and Feb 1) and has the same menu servings each night. I was very pleased overall and was very happy to rediscover Positano Coast as an essential "wonderful place to eat" in our neighborhood. Everything works from beginning to end, including the request for the reservation confirmation. We were never rushed and and never not attended to.

Love this place. The only compliant I have is very noisy. There were four of us and i asked for window seat and instead we were seated near table of 15, who were loud. It was very hard for us to have a conversation.

We hadn't been to this restaurant in a while and I had forgotten how great it is! Our server, Nick, was terrific. We're Italian and picky about Italian food, and this place really hits the mark. I highly recommend it!
