Favorite restaurant, but beware of parking. Bad advice from the establishment netted me a parking ticket and a possible tow-away. Had to interrupt dinner to rescue my car from a tow-away.
We had an awesome time on Sunday! This was my first time here and it was my sisters 40th bday! The staff was amazing and attentive! The food was fresh and amazing! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my family and friends!
Food was delicious but very inattentive service, had to tell the waiter multiple times about drinks they kept forgetting to bring out.
Had fish deboned, tons of bones, food excellent, service vg
Very good service and nice menu selection. Food is always tasty.
The food was fair and small portions. Very small beer selection and wine was very expensive for 5 oz. The service was very good and the atmosphere was very good. I would not recommend this restaurant.
Came in for lunch but were to early .Need to go back .Only menu i think i could eat everything ,Thats hard to say
Food was outstanding, and being Italian you an trust that is authentic.
Our table was a bit noisy cause closer to the bar, next time I'll ask a different spot to have quieter conversation
My family goes here at least twice a year, before going to the Children's Theater at the Arden. The food is always delicious, the menu accommodates our kids' tastes and portion needs, and the atmosphere is a lot of fun. On our most recent visit my husband took a wrong turn and was late arriving. The hostess was very nice about it. But it meant we didn't have as much time to eat and get to the theater. We told our waiter the situation and asked that he bring out the food as soon as it was done, not to worry about apps and entrees coming together. The staff was amazing. The food came out lightening fast, so fast we ended up having time for dessert. The food was wonderful, as usual, and we were able to relax and enjoy it because it came so quickly. Thank you so much for an evening that could have been stressful but ended up being wonderful!
Everything was absolutely perfect. The waiter, food, presentation and ambiance couldn't have been better.
The food was fresh and delicious! Can’t wait to go back!
Close to movie theaters, great food at reasonable rate.
Server was very nice, prompt, helpful with the menu and didn’t feel rushed at all. Of course the food was amazing and i love the ambiance in there. It was about $100 for the two of us granted we each had a 3 course meal with shared dessert. Overall great dinner.
Pricey but solid place. Kind of wish there were more options.
Very comfortable setting before Ritz 5 movies. Excellent service with separate checks.
We had a group of 10 and everyone loved their meal. The staff was very accommodating to children and did a nice job in celebrating my husband's birthday with a nice dessert (without advance notice). I have passed this a million times and never went in, it is a gem
this is the third time we go to this very nice restaurant and we were not disappointed
The good was very well presented, very tasty and the attention by the server was superb.
Very highly recommended
While the service was excellent, my lamb entree was cold and uninspired. The bronzino portion was on the smaller side. I have had better meals here previously.
The food here is soooooo good!
Great food but loud!
Food prices are fine but $11 for 9 oz. glass of wine is excessive.
Good quality, reasonably priced food. Really enjoyed the cheese and meat platter as an App.
Great semi-traditional food choices. Service was on spot and friendly. Access and valet parking available. A bit difficult to find since it is located on the second floor. We will return for another great meal.
There were nine of us, so that we had a semi-private area that was perfect. The service was excellent with the waitress knowing who got what without asking. The menu was varied enough so that each diner could be pleased, and the food was well-prepared.
My friends took me here for a birthday brunch. We thought the bottomless mimosas and sangrias would be a great deal but it wasn't. The mimosas were pre-mixed so you couldn't adjust the orange juice/sparkling wine ratio. Needless to say it was mostly orange juice. I had to send back my calamari as they were soggy (they were supposed to be fried and crispy). Also, the scallops were a joke! They were the size of a nickel! If it said bay scallop on the menu, then maybe I would expect something that small. It was $12 for 4 scallops with a pinch of crabmeat on top! The service also sucked as I had to flag the waiter down just to get more coffee! He disappeared at least 3 times! I will definitely not be going back here!
My wife got a promotion at work so we went to Postianos to celebrate and I must say the food, service and prices was excellent I had the sea bass that was cook perfectly and had a drink called the El Segundo that was real tasty good job
We have been dining at Positano Coast for many years, and have never been disappointed. The food, service and ambience are all excellent. Happily, the tables are not crowded together and it's quiet enough for genuine conversation. We recommend it highly.
We came in for Saturday brunch. We had a reservation and when we walked in, there was no one at the hostess desk. We stood there for several minutes before anyone came over. Even then, she answered the phone first and told us "to wait a few minutes". At that point, a man came over and showed us to our table. The restaurant was very noisy and it seemed that the noise was bouncing off of every surface. It was difficult to have a conversation with the person across from me. The server came over and took our drink orders and brought us water right away. He was fantastic. The cocktails came, and they were sub-par, tasted very weak almost all mixer & no liquor. We then switched over to the sangria which was very good. The food was also good, we had the avocado toast, the salmon flatbread and the zucchini frittata. All were well prepared and served promptly. Again, the service was great but overall, there are better brunch places in Old City.
Tasty modest selection (appropriate for brunch) which everybody enjoyed at a reasonable price
Our experience was perfect from start to finish. We started with happy hour at the bar. Friendly bartenders and good cocktails with good value. We then went to dinner and enjoyed our main entrees, vegetable tray, and dessert. Service was warm, friendly, and professional. Would highly recommend. Great ambience too!
Always excellent, delicious, comfortable, beautiful space. Oysters were perfect, scallops with cauliflower purée were done just right - delicate and not over cooked. Caesar Salad with anchovies, Brussels sprouts, and orichiette were very good. Wine selection was just what I wanted and the staff are well trained, professional, yet friendly. There are many reasons why I keep coming back to this restaurant. Thanks.
I dined with theee friends. We ordered from.the lunch menu..Each of us enjoyed our meal. Perfect for a lare afternoon lunch.
Just an overall excellent fun time, food and service were excellent and it was a great party atmosphere with out little group of 7
Had a really good dinner here. Nice place to come, especially before or after a movie right across the street at the Ritz.
This restaurant is a a short walk from the Arden Theater. The service is good while the ambiance is classy casual. I would choose this place for pre-theater drinks and appetizers.
Great in every way. Wonderful atmosphere and service, consistently fabulous food.
Bronzino had a sweet paste underneath it...a bad combination..
We have been coming here for a very long time and never has a bad meal. I recommend this place for a fun nite out
Great food and service, reasonable prices for center city Philadelphia
Very nice place for a quiet dinner. Food is excellent.
