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 restaurant! Enjoyed the quiet cozy atmosphere and with a group of 8 it was a very enjoyable dinner . Even as the restaurant got very busy still easy to converse with the group. Food was great and bread was fantastic. Our waitress was excellent.

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.

Great service and great food. Love this restaurant for its quiet and cozy environment. Had a party of about 12 teen aged girls behind us that were very loud the whole night, but other than that the ambiance is always nice.

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.

This is one of the best restaurants in the area and true italian restaurants. The pasta is always fresh, the bread excellent warm and tasty, great wine menu and wonderful service. I visit frequently for lunch and dinner both for work and family. The seafood pasta dishes are fresh, full of authentic flavor and there is plenty to eat. I always over indulge as the food cant be beat. This is a hidden gem and if you pass it up it is your loss as i cant say anything but good things. Dan

We had an uxpected guest, so we were 11 instead of 10. The waitresses handled it very graciously! They were cordial, patient, and great with our young child too. They offere a birthday suggested dessert with a candle, so we could sing! It was a tasty and joyous experience for all of us! I often recommend it to others!

My 2 friends and I were walking toward the entrance to Positano when we noticed a young girl laying awkwardly on the sideway/road. I had spotted her playing her guitar at the entrance to the shopping center earlier. We realized that something was very wrong, so went to her and quickly found out that she was experiencing heat exhaustion. At the same time we were asking her what happened, one of Positano's waitresses, Becca, was coming in for her shift. She came back out with ice water and a cold cloth. We then found out that this young lady is a student at UNCG and hadn't eaten all day. I went into the restaurant and explained the situation and they graciously gave me bread & butter and cucumbers (for dehydration), and we were able to get her into a safe location and call a friend of hers to come get her. Her friend came and all was well.
I cannot thank Becca, and the rest of the staff at Positano's for their concern and generosity. We went on to have a wonderful dinner, not the first time for us, and we will continue to frequent Positano's as it is one of our favorite Italian restaurants. Food is fabulous, their specials are great, the atmosphere is very nice, yet casual, and the wait staff is superb! Cudos to all!
