We came here for Mother’s Day Lunch. They were very busy but handled reservations as promptly as possible. We were a party of 4 and it was our first time dining here. The food was outstanding! We each ordered something different and there were no take home boxes. The desserts were equally amazing. Will definitely return .
The food and service for our latest dining experience here was excellent. Mama Carmela's meatballs, eggplant parmesan, fettucine with dungeness crab were all wonderful. The owner and servers are always friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately, we had a large party nearby which took away from the ambience of the evening. Nothing could be done about the noise level but it did take away from our enjoyment of the evening.
Food was fantastic. Dungeness crab pasta, very well made and lot's of crab. Waiter had a great singing voice for birthday's
Stopped overnight on a long drive. Wanted a nice dinner and got one!
Delicious and relaxed! Exactly what we were looking for! Check was immediate, food was fast, wine was great! And they sing for birthdays! Can’t wait to be back! Thank you Locanda Positano! Bravo!
Our server Vito was superb. The food was superb. I’m just sad we didn’t find this place sooner. The cooking is authentic Italian. Minimal ingredients, all fresh and perfectly executed.
Good food but took over an hour to get our food, free appetizer or something to keep us busy while waiting would have been the answer here.
Wonderful experience, food is absolutely beautiful and the service is truly one of kind.
We were very impressed with the food , the service and the ambience. The singing waiter, David , was highly entertaining. We can't wait to go back again.
Sister in town, she loved our dinner and service
Very nice dinner and ambiance in the outdoor covered patio. The food was delicious and the “singing waiter” was a fun surprise. We will be back 😊
Went here recently 4-23-2021. It frankly was not as good as my last experience here. We ordered the antipasto, pizza with mushrooms and sausage, pasta as one of their special dishes that night with mushrooms/cream sauce.
The antipasto was very good - fresh and flavorful. As for the pizza, the pluses were that pizza crust was cooked perfectly and the sausage was outstanding. The negative was that it had too much cheese. The mushrooms in the pasta sauce and pizza did not have too much flavor. They can do better.
Service was very good. I'll give these folks another chance.
Best Italian food this side of the tunnel. Loved the food, the Bellini and the Aperol Spritz.
Great Italian food in a family like setting. Everyone enjoying the evening and waiter was terrific...Birthday wish singer from the Opera was very entertaining...We will be back soon!
We celebrated a very good friend’s 70th birthday. The wonderful opera singer/server sang to the Birthday girl twice. The entire team were fantastic. They get an A + in service. I love this place!
As usual, excellent food and excellent service.
Eating at Locanda Positano is about as close as you'll get to Italy without boarding a plane. The food is fresh, authentic and DELICIOUS, the decor is beautiful, and the staff is friendly. We've loved everything we've had there - the Gnocchi with Pesto sauce, Lobster ravioli, Piatto alla Contadina and desserts (Limoncello cake and Tiramisu are SO GOOD). Highly recommend!!
Held a surprise birthday for a girlfriend and waiter sang the best birthday song ever, beautiful voice. Everything from outdoor seating to food was fantastic!!
This was our first time visiting the restaurant, we were able to book somewhat last minute but when we arrived it was very busy. It took a little while to seat us so the manager gave each of us a glass of champagne. We were then seated in a small room by ourselves which was perfect as we were celebrating for our friend. The food was excellent, the waitstaff so very helpful and friendly, and they had a waiter that sang to us. We had a great night, very fun, and will certainly return.
nice place! lots of room to sit comfortably and socially distant. there is also a nice outside seating area covered by a tent-like structure with heaters that keep the place comfortable.
Excellent room for 6 diners. Waiter Antonio was very helpful and add lots fun for my party. We will return on Thursday for dinner again. Like the Rose di Montalcino wine too. Roberto
We had an excellent lunch in the outside seating with our dog.
Date night meal was perfect! Sat on the upper outside patio, great service and delicious food. We will be back!
Amazing! We ended up sitting at the bar and had Jason (bartender) taking care of us. He was awesome! The food was outstanding as well! I went with my fiancée and we have been to most of the Italian restaurants in the area, this is the best by far.
Arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and was pointed to an area to wait for our table to be available. We had reserved an indoor table as the evening temps were falling quickly. After a 15 minute wait we witnessed another couple who had asked to be switched to an indoor table, be seated to the table the hostess had said was being cleared for us. Disappointed, we were resolved that we would end up outside in the tent, under a heat lamp that wasn’t even on. The noise level was horrific as the tent was at full capacity with numerous tables of families, all seemingly enjoying a birthday celebration. Our waiter was soon to our table and took our drink order. The bread and wine arrived quickly, followed by our salads, which were underdressed. Thank god mine had anchovies lest there would have been no flavor at all. Then came the 45 minute wait for the entree. Can you imagine the frustration that develops when you wait with no service and you can only hear about 10% of what your dinner date is saying while only being 2 feet away. During our wait for the entrees we were offered dessert menues! Apparently, even the floor managers had lost track of our experience. The food was good, not 4.8 out of 5 good. I can’t recommend this restaurant at this time. Too manic, too loud, and not well orchestrated. The experience is a 3 out of 5 at best.
Outstanding in every way. Food and service is a 10 out of 10. The only area for improvement would be the outdoor seating-the chairs are a cold metal.
Delicious food, great service! My favorite Italian place in the Bay Area!
Great! Lot of fun
Nice outdoor seating. Good service.
OMG, spectacular. Go there, go there, go there. Wow.
Excellent Italian food, friendly waiters, great service and ambience. Reminds me of Italy.
Love the recommendations from our server.
I had my birthday dinner here with my family that traveled from out of town and my friends! We had an absolute blast! The ambiance was fun and perfect! The food was also a 10/10! I highly recommend!
Service was exceptional and food was excellent. Will definitely be back.
Great food. Going back tonight
Wonderful serenade from our server
The gnocchi and bread was delicious! Very nice servers and host. Outdoor patio was comfortable and cozy.
Food was very disappointing. My dish of pasta with clams was less than adequate. The pasta was very very over cooked. Could only eat the clams which doesn't make for a good dish.
