    Excellent food and service. We did sit next to a large party of 20, which made it difficult to hear over their screaming, but that is probably the exception and not the nor.

    This was our first visit to Positano. What a delight. One of the owners greeted us when we walked in the door and he pleasantly showed us to our table. Our waiter was very busy but still offered us outstanding service. The kitchen was fast and the food was amazing! The owner came to every table to check on guests. Nice touch. We can’t wait to go back and bring friends with us.

    Wonderful experience, we came in for a family dinner to celebrate report cards and Easter. Ron was our waiter, and was extremely patient with our four kids, checked in on us consistently, and provided great service. We love the food, it's always delicious, but the service was outstanding!

    Really great food that was well-priced in my opinion. The portions were large and filling. I had the pollo con polenta that was cooked very well (and had half to take home). I definitely would come back to try the pasta — the rigatoni alla vodka looked amazing! The item that surprised me the most were the cannolis. Our waiter had them brought to the table for my husband’s birthday, which was a nice touch to end the dinner. They also tasted amazing! The service itself was a little slow, but we had great company and lots of conversation in our party to pass the time.

    Positano Ristorante was truly some of the best Italian food in the Chicago suburbs! The roasted vegetables was such a great add on side for any of the pastas. Along with this, the sauces were creamy, rich, and did not feel heavy on the stomach. The gnocchi was divine; they were like soft pillows! The finale of the night was the homemade tiramisu. It was so good I have no words. All I have to say is trust me, just try it.

    I don’t normally review a place with this detail, but I feel that this place deserves it. We have dined here numerous times and have never been disappointed. Definitely our favorite restaurant to frequent regularly. We have had the pleasure of having Jose as our server Many times it truly shows he loves his job and cares for his customers. we have also had other servers which Been great as well. The food speaks for itself. Having tried many things on the menu, we have never been disappointed with our meal choices. The portion sizes are generous and fairly priced. My parents moved here from Italy and their 20s so I am first generation in the US growing up with great food. I can definitely say this compares to what I was used to growing up.

    I've dined here several times, I specifically asked in my reservation for a corner table to celebrate a birthday. At 445pm we were seated in the very center of the empty dining room. There was no mention that we were celebrating a birthday so dessert arrived very lack luster. Disappointing experience, as this was a recommendation I made for my friends birthday that was mediocre. It'll be a while before I return, if at all. Our server was pleasant I dont think our reservation details were given to him.
