Our server and our food was excellent. The two hostesses seemed to be completely unable to manage or problem-solve. Despite having a reservation, they couldn't seem to remember how many were in our party and seated two large walk-in groups prior to seating us. We were not seated until 25 minutes after our reservation. The wait-staff was completely swamped, but were clearly doing their best. My suspicion is that this is a management and a training issue.

Would happily have our server and food again, but it's hard to feel excited about going back due to the confusion and bad attitudes from the hostesses. It is unfortunate when the people greeting customers appear to be lacking competence.

The flounder special was amazing and made me change off of my usual cheese ravioli in Alfredo sauce (which I love!). The staff is friendly and cater to your needs, without being pushy or rushing you. The Spinoni for dessert fed all 3 of us and was delicious 😋 I can’t wait for my next meal at Positano’s!!

We had a great lunch just my mom and I for Mother’s Day. The bread was warm. The lobster ravioli was the best I have ever had. The tiramisu was delicious. We will be back.

Went there for a birthday dinner, service was delayed and we all had to continuously ask for refills from waitress. The high prices you pay are absurd for the little amount of food you get. My ravioli looked and tasted like it was out of frozen food containers. Very flat and dry. My friend ordered lasagne and it was about the size of her pinky, just one small piece. Will not be coming back here.

As always, we very much enjoyed our dining experience at Positano's. My salmon was really good. My wife was excited to see that they had lamb chops on the menu, and she found them cooked nicely and well trimmed so she was able to enjoy them without having to cut off a lot of fat. m the service was great. It was nice to see a good crowd even on a weeknight.

This was our third experience at Positano, and it never disappoints. Best bruschetta and chicken parm I’ve ever eaten. Family agrees. Positano is a Greensboro gem; highly recommend.

I don’t give five stars as it is reserved for the best of the best. With that said, Mark’s never disappoints! Food, service and hospitality. One of my favorites whenever I am in town with clients. Over three years and the quality remains.

Superb experience! Attentive waitress but what really set this place apart was the hostess, who ran to a nearby store to purchase candles for a last-minute birthday request. I’ll be a regular at this cozy restaurant with delicious food. What a well-run and welcoming place!

Good Restaurant! Reservations will be recommended since it seems to get full quickly and the place it's not that big (we went on a Friday). Tiramisu is one of the best I have tried in the Greensboro area.

We have been there twice. We had a different server both times and both were outstanding. They knew the menu like the back of their hands and made great wine recommendations. And of course the food was outstanding and everything at a great price point. Love this place.

We chose Positano for Valentine's Day because a year ago our visit to this small local restaurant was so pleasant. I asked for a booth, and we were given an incredibly cozy corner booth ~ perfect. Our server was prompt and courteous, brought drinks right away while we chatted and looked at the menu. I ordered the lobster ravioli, the same as last year . . . and it was just as delicious as last year. My husband ordered shrimp scampi which he said was very good. The restaurant was busy, but not loud; just the right "hum" of a well-loved restaurant filled with folks celebrating a special day.

Last minute Valentine’s Day reservation at 5pm. The tables were too close together for my liking but other than that it was fantastic! We had lobster ravioli and Gorgonzola gnocchi. Both outstanding. We are foodies and weren’t expecting much but we were very pleasantly surprised. Highly recommended!!
