Our group of four each had delicious meals. Tuna Tartare, mussels, and salad 1st courses were delicious. The entrees, zucchini crab cake, Mahi with broccoli rab, orrichette w sausage and broccoli rab and veal tenderloin were all first rate. I was in the mood for tartuffo but it is not on the menu so we left; otherwise the dessert menu looked fine. We will definitely go back.

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.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.

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.
