    It was restaurant week and the servers were rushed, did not clean tables in between courses and did not fill needs like salt/pepper requests.

    Went for Sunday brunch. The music was deafening. Management wouldn't make any changes. Then, when the restaurant started to fill up, the conversation noise level got so high that it even drowned out the loud music. This place is acoustically very unfriendly - we couldn't even hear one another without shouting. We won't be returning.

    We came here for restaurant week and found it to be very disappointing. The food was mediocre (seafood risotto & Branzino) & the staff did not seem like they cared about the food & service at all. Staff would come by to bring the food and leave without waiting to see if everything was okay. Our waiter never stopped by to ask about the food or to offer more bread (more bread would have been helpful to the experience), he was only there at the beginning & at the end for the check. We left the restaurant hungry & dissatisfied. I do not recommend to anyone.

    Positano Coast by Aldo LambertiResponded 6 days agoGood evening, I am sorry to see a lower review from this past weekend. I have spoken to the server associated and would love the opportunity to apologize to you and invite you back to Positano to show you the experience we strive to provide on a regular basis.

    We were very disappointed in the Christmas Eve Seven Fishes. We expected very special and got below average. Food was served "family style" which seemed mean hastily served, as in mediocre cafeteria. We could have handled messy serving if food tasty, but.meal was mushy and mainly tasteless. Only star of meal was tuna caparccio... and, that's not cooked.

    The food was good but not great, as were the drinks. We loved two of the drinks, one of them was ok and the third was terrible. At the end of it all I don’t think it was worth $77 per person plus tip by any means. Service was great though.

    The food was not as good as it should have been. Crab cakes were bland although the shrimp ravioli were good

    Positano Coast by Aldo LambertiResponded on December 11, 2022Good afternoon, While I am happy to see the ravioli special was to your liking I am so very disheartened that our crab cake, which we are so well known for, seemed bland. Please feel free to reach out to me directly so that I can apologize and in the meantime I will get together with Chef and double check sauces and tastings today. Thank you for the feedback, I hope to hear from you Shawn Leahey, GM 215 238 0499 Shawn@positanocoast.net

    Went for an early dinner on Saturday night. Hostess seated us around the back of the restaurant in a lovely space with backlighted photographs of Italy and next to additional photos of narrow streets and cobblestones. The raw seafood sampler was great and included a seafood salad. The uni black ink squid pasta with crab was good. The branzini was small and a little over done. There was an unknown white purée under the fish. Waiter said it was puréed parsley. My response was, “it’s white though?” “That’s due to vinegar,” he replied. We asked another employee in passing and that guess was artichokes. Dessert was a hot chocolate cake with too little vanilla gelato. Unfortunately the espresso machine was broken so we had to settle for American coffee. Quite a letdown to end our meal.

    Positano Coast by Aldo LambertiResponded on December 13, 2022Good evening, Thank you very much for the review, we are thrilled that you enjoyed the evening. As for the puree under the Branzino, it is Parsnip. I do know the server you had may have had issues saying that word, and would have sounded just like Parsley. I do apologize for the confusion. As of now our Espresso machine should be up and running tonight, we have been working very diligently on this for several days with our Vendor. Please have a great Holiday and we hope to see you again.
