Came in for lunch, ordered pasta of the day - mushroom ravioli and the calzone to share, both very tasty! Pasta dish a good size, but the calzone was huge, did not leave hungry! Good value for money too.

We always enjoy the atmosphere and food at Positano. The restaurant is well established and service and food are very good. The menu is wide but well set out. Not just good Italian food but a wide range of other choices. Early theatre suppers as well as lunches and dinners. Popular with all age groups and easily accessible for all... More

The quality and quantity of every single dish is amazing, and it is not expensive. I really recommend this restaurant, but call first to reserve a table in weekends because it could be very busy! Totally worth it.

For me, this restaurant just gets better and better. Great food, relaxed but attentive service, so you don't feel rushed, and staff who have an obvious rapport and so work for each other. We enjoyed an excellent meal that really hit the spot.

Been using Positano's for years. It's always clean, good food and the staff are friendly. Prices are average for the food but drinks are a bit expensive.

What a fabulous restaurant, accommodated 3 of us on spec. Drinks and complimentary bruschetta to start, all ordered different plates, arrived together piping hot and generous portions. Every meal was delicious, we could have been in a top restaurant in Italy. Desserts exactly the same. Reasonable price, highly recommend.

As a family we have previously visited Positano on a few occasions and have been impressed each time and this occasion was no different. The customer service is excellent and you're made to feel completely at home as soon as you walk through the door. Nothing is too much trouble for the kind welcoming staff and many franchise restaurants could... More

I have been here a few times over the last couple of years, there is a very good reason that this place is always busy and you need to book. Food was very good as was service, not kept waiting to long even though it was busy..very professional.

Lovely family run restaurant. The food is delicious and the portions really big. Yes it's stuck in the 80s but that adds to the charm. A lovely place and we will certainly be going back.
