This place is excellent!!! We wanted to try 4 different types of pasta and the owner allowed us to order half portions for 2 people so we can try everything we wanted. He was just the sweetest man. Really loved the vibe of the place.

I was a little annoyed that the family sitting next to us, who sat down AFTER us, got bread before us, and got attended to before us… server didn’t ask us about drinks until after he brought wine and bread to the next table.

Other than that, the food came out fast once we ordered, and it was absolutely delicious! Would definitely recommend this restaurant although it is extremely expensive

A friend recommended Locanda Positano, noting that while the location didn't look great, the food and atmosphere were both excellent. She was right. Be aware that portions are on the large size; I wasn't able to finish my pasta, let alone that and a secondo!

The food and service are always great. We’re local and have been there several times. During the pandemic, they have done a nice job of converting a parking lot into something charming. Highly recommend.

Food was wonderful and we were seated right away which was great. We were not served water or asked about drinks longer than expected and the waiter was short and abrupt with us. He also kept filling our glasses with wine without asking even though I didn’t want any more. He did say thank you every time we said thank you though and was polite.

This is my new favorite Italian restaurant and a Westside gem. I went last night with my entire family to celebrate my birthday. It was my second visit and it didn't disappoint! It is charming, unpretentious, quiet enough to have an enjoyable conversation, and best of all - the FOOD. The menu is so loaded with amazing choices, it's hard to decide. And it's all incredibly delicious. Service can be a little slow, but overall efficient and attentive. I can't wait to go back.

This was my first time at Locanda since the pandemic and I was so very pleased to be back! Food and service excellent as always. My only comment is that I do prefer the front dining room which didn’t appear to be open. It was more quaint. But this remains my favorite Italian food outside of Italy.

Locanda Positano is like being in Italy. The whole vibe, the Italian flair and service is a treat. Then there's the food. My husband ordered the Tagliolini Bolognese... hand made. Perfect. My salmon was cooked to perfection. The salad and beef carpaccio was divine. To end this incredible dinner was their delicious cannoli's. We will be back!

We were here to celebrate my friends birthday. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was very nice! The bus boys were great and we had good service in that end, but I cannot say the same about our waiter. He had that “you’re bothering me” attitude the whole time he was serving us, and just generally had an off putting demeanor. Having said that, the food was good enough that we will absolutely come again - just hope for a different waiter. I definitely recommend this place as a cute date spot! Very nice vibe and yummy food

My husband and I went back to this restaurant to give another chance. We sat inside of the restaurant where there where a few tables. The grandson of the owner kept riding his scooter inside of the restaurant!! We ordered Burrata and tomato salad which Burrata was very good and tomatoes were just OK not to be served for this special dish!! My husband ordered lasagna. Which was very rich. In the evening my husband started not feeling well. He was up all night with an upset stomach and the whole day Sunday was ruined!!! I had Pappardella Pasta with wild Boar which was more raw then Al dente , Boar was too dry and to rich to eat!! I barely touched my dish!!
