Despite it being a VERY hot day, we opted to enjoy lunch outside. There was a large party inside and it seemed very loud and the dining room was very cold, especially when compared to the outside temperature. The fact that there is a roof...More

Located on the second floor across from the Ritz Theater, this is a pleasant restaurant with a wide variety of selections. The fish and the pasta that we had were nicely-prepared and served appropriately. The dining room can be noisy when full.

We ended up choosing this restaurant over Bookbinder's and we are glad we did. The food was excellent! Well cooked, innovative and beautifully presented. The decor is modern and it's a bit noisy, but we sat outside where it was much quieter.

I booked a large group for lunch and Carolina and Cara where easy to work with during the planning stage. e.g. answering all my many questions. Then on the day, the staff delivered great service and delicious food.

Right in the heart of the Old City this will remind you of the Amalfi Coast, especially if you get outside patio seating. Reasonable prices and both appetizers & entrees were delish. Looked like a nice Happy hour too. Recommend.

Why settle for an ordinary atmosphere when you can have an extraordinary one? Enjoy the beauty of the Amalfi Coast in Italy right in Old City. From the cobalt blue floor, to the spectacular life-sized postcards to the inspired menu, when you step into Positano Coast, you will need to catch your breath. We welcome guests to savor a menu full of delicious selections, including the freshest fish & seafood, the must have "Crudo" (the Italian version of sashimi) & creative variations of classic Italian pasta & meat dishes.
