We visited during furniture market. This is a regional trade show that taxes the local restaurant infrastructure. Predictably, our table was 15 mins late becoming available and bar space is super limited for waiting. Food is decent Italian. Wine list is OK but lacks an abundance of selection.

Positanos has been our favorite "go to" restaurant for a number of years. I usually enjoy the fish special, often salmon which I usually can order even if it's not on the specials list, but their raviolis including the "mixed" are always good. My wife enjoys the chicken piccata and the capellini with meat sauce and meatballs, among other yummy choices. The staff is always gracious, and the service is normally quite prompt.

We waited 25 mins after our reservation time! Really no place to wait, bar is VERY small. Finally seated, another 10 mins before the hostess came and apologized, she did not let our server know we had been seated? Food was excellent, we will try again and hope for a better experience!

The food is very good, the server should not be working in a restaurant. We had just sat down and she wanted us to order. She came back 5 minutes later and asked us to order again.We explained we had not even opened the menu and we weren't in a rush. Apparently she was. This was at 7:40 pm so they weren't close to closing. When I mentioned that I heard other servers tell their tables about specials, her response was "well, I guess you know what they are now so no need for me to tell you about them". So unprofessional, and again she shouldn't be working in the restaurant business.

The food is very good but we both agreed we wouldn't be dining here again. Not because of the food or atmosphere but because they apparently hire very unfriendly and disrespectful servers.

Excellent food - surprisingly beautiful space, given it’s in a Harris Teeter shopping center. We went based on recommendations and were NOT disappointed. Looking forward to going back!

When it comes to Italian food we are rather biased... coming from NYC and Boston. And 5 trips to Italy. Others may love this restaurant if that is not the kind of Italian food they are used to. The restaurant itself is lovely, the staff terrific. But the red sauces are sweet... so if that is the kind you like, give it a try. If you like the tomato/garlic/sl. tang of NY/Boston this will not meet your needs. Purely ones own history of what one likes for "Italian".

Positano's is always a great place to eat. The Itlalian cuisine is superb. The breadsticks are always piping hot and delicious. I personally love the half chicken baked with rosemary rub. As well beyond the traditional Italian pasta dishes, the stromboli and calezoni are excellent and very large--enough to eat half and take half home. The service is excellent with a wait staff large enough to offer personal attention to every table. Even when packed, which is was on this visit, food arrival was timely and the service was personal and first rate.

If you are looking for large portions of americanized italian food with great servuce this is your spot. However, if you are looking for a meal worth the money, spend it elsewhere. The sauces lacked flavor (we tried the red sauce, alfredo, and Gorgonzola cream), the gnocchi was doughy, and the chicken parmesan was clearly frozen beforehand.

We went here because it was rated one of the best italian restaurants in the Triad, however the food was very mediocre and underwhelming. Olive Garden would have been a better choice.

We reserved a booth for four and were seated upon arrival at a booth. The atmosphere is nice with low lighting and it was cozy. It was not so noisy that one could not talk. The service was excellent, as was the food. I had scallops and shrimp with pasta; it was very good. This was my first visit and based upon this experience, I will be back.

Very nice evening. Waitress was very knowledgeable about all the dishes and how they were prepared. Menu was expansive- there was every kind of protein you could want represented. Seemed like an early person’s restaurant. When we arrived at our 7:30 reservation time the place was packed. By the time we left around 9:30 there was only one table left eating. Had the feel of a neighborhood gathering place. We will go back often.

Food was very good. Service was very good until we finished our meal and needed our dinner packed in to-go containers. This is the first time that the Positano waitress/waiter did not offer to put our food in the to-go containers. Our waitress just gave us the containers, put the bill on the table, and left. I was speechless.
