The food was very good, salad was excellent. We enjoyed the two for one happy hour drinks. We also found out they have early dining specials. So the next time we go we will skip lunch and have an early dinner to enjoy the reduced prices for our favorite dishes. Works great for retired couples on a fixed income.

Fun night with Julie
We arrived to a nice cozy table in the corner of the bar. Julie was our friendly and attentive server as well as the evening's bartender.
We started with a fine bottle of cabernet sauvignon along with some bread and olive oil.
The salads were fresh with just the right amount of vinaigrette.
The chicken francese was moist and flavorful with just the right amount of sauce included for its serving upon a bed of linguine.
Likewise the chicken marsala was so tender you could cut it with a fork. The accompanying penne pasta with Bolognese sauce was delicious.
We finished off dinner with their featured dessert -- an apple crostada. It was fantastic!

Positano's is our go to place for a small special occasion and has never disappointed us in the past. This time was no different. We arrived a little early for our reservation but were seated immediately. The service was top notch, the sangria was fruity & just sweet enough, and I cannot recommend enough the stuffed mushroom appetizer. While the rest of my party had salads with their dinner, I had the soup of the day (eggplant with pancetta) which was an excellent choice. All of us loved our main courses. Our server was always there when needed with refills and to clear dishes but was otherwise unobtrusive and our entire meal was an unhurried joy unlike many restaurants we have been to. We'll be back again, hopefully soon.

Excellent food from the zucchini and pancetta soup, choices of sauces for pasta, and great desserts (chocolate gelato, heaven) every course was delicious. The happy hour drinks are a bonus. Positano's is a great choice for every occasion or just because the food is that good!

Great evening with friends!
We thoroughly enjoyed the live jazz trio during dinners.
All of our entrees (filet mignon; veal marsala; ravioli with bolognese sauce; short rib special) were superb! We thoroughly enjoyed the bottle of Pendulum cabernet sauvignon with dinner.
The apple tart for dessert was a great ending
Our server, Nikki, was awesome!
