Description: Singapore's only halal Italian restaurant in the Arab Street area. One that not only serves great food, but also a great experience, at value.
Reviewed 14 January 2018

One of the owners visited a small Italian town and was inspired by its beauty and the inspiring story of how it treated its sole Muslim resident. Thus Positano became the name of a cosy restaurant which serves not just great food but dishes out a nice and casual social dining experience - at a very reasonable price. It does not have a very long menu, which allows the team to focus on ensuring each dish is special, according to Ishak, one of the founders - who is always there to ensure the food, ambience and service is just they way the owners envision it. We tasted the Ribeye (succulent, texture just right and taste - I ate it without the sauce - was really good), the arrabiata (my favourite among the handmade pastas - spicy without overpowering the accompanying flavours), prawn alio oglio (nice herbal taste, tasty sun-dried tomatoes and generous servings of prawns done just right) and crabmeat linguini (crab meat was fresh and the crab flavour permeated the pasta, slightly spicy). The crabmeat mac and cheese seemed out of place in the menu so we did not order but Ishak insisted we try it. I dont particularly like creamy pastas but this one was indeed special. I would strongly recommend a visit!

Wonderful service and great food! The pumpkin puree for infants was just lovely as this is the first time I've been to an establishment that is very baby friendly! The pizzas are highly recommended, the crust and fillings complements each other, really taste like the ones we had in Italy. We will definitely be back.

lovely food, the first time i dropped in i couldnt not decide on pastas or pizzas or a good piece of steak or a lamb rack. I've been there twice already and very satisfied with the quality of food and price for an italian resto. especially one that is right smack in the middle of vibrant arab street. if i had to choose one italian resto to head to..this would be it!

p.s this place is halal and family friendly - we held a birthday gathering on the top floor and had to make reservations in advance which the staff was very happy to cater to.
