Veal was tender and delicious. Salad dressing is excellent. Had the tomatoes/mozzarella for appetizer. Wished the tomatoes and mozzarella were more tasty. (Bland)

Terrific, as always. Get your order in by 5:30, and you can order off the early dining menu....delicious food in smaller quantities & at lower prices. Service is impeccable with a waitstaff that’s been there awhile, which, to us, indicates a happy crew. We’re always pleased!

Food is always excellent here. Alex our server is a little overbearing. We have had him before and he still comes across the same way. Next time I will use another server. We are here for the excellent food and not necessarily the service.

Had an excellent time with my mother. Food was delicious! Best Italian food in Palm harbor Florida. Very authentic and cooked to perfection 👌🏻. I had the eggplant Parmesan and angel hair pasta with marinara sauce. Everything was cooked just right and my mother had the manicotti with a Cesar salad. I can’t say enough about how well the food was prepared. Have been looking for years for a place like this and now, I will always go here when in the mood for authentic Italian food.

Was great, very interesting that only 1 time was open besides the one we took. When we got there about 1/3 of the tables were empty and when we left about 60 % were empty.
Interesting!

From the pleasant welcome by the hostess and owner, to the exceptional service (Thank you, Julie!) to the piping hot and delicious fare, Positano’s is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Tampa Bay. The excellent live entertainment on Friday and Sat nights make Positano’s our first choice in dining out. If you have not tried the wood fired oven pizza, put it on your bucket list. It’s a must!

There was a rude hostess when we walked in with our children. There were also rude patrons when we were seated. It was filled with elderly patrons that don’t seem to like young well- behaved children. We were disappointed to say the least. Our server was great.

Positano’s never disappoints! The ambiance is warm and family friendly. I took my sister in law from New York there and her son. The wine was very good. Their soup and/or salad is served with most of their entrees. Their soup is made fresh daily. You can taste the difference, some restaurants serve soups which taste frozen or canned. Their salad is always fresh. Thierry ravioli with asparagus was scrumptious, 2 of us had that. My husband had their sausage with onions and peppers; it was so good. My sister in law’s son had a large salad. This was not on the menu but they were happy to accommodate his request. For dessert we asked for the daily special, blueberry crostata, but they had just sold the last one, much to our disappointment.
Overall. We had a lovely dining experience. Our server, Nikki, was wonderful. She brought us everything we needed and kept smiling the whole time. I look forward to going back to this restaurant again.

Positanos has become our steady, “Go-To” local restaurant since moving into the area some 7 months ago. Wonderfully delicious and varied cuisine, and “Live Jazz” every Friday night. Service is excellent and the owners and managers always assure that you are enjoying your dining experience. And, if you enjoy delicious, thin crust Italian Pizza, you’ll love “Harry’s Pizza!”
