We were in town with our kids and we had an amazing night the food was delicious and everything was well priced. Service was top notch and we didn’t wait long for food and at the same time we were not rushed. Great view by the window and all 4 of our kids loved their meals.

Nick our server was as wonderful and very attentive to us. The crab cake was delicious and byob on Sunday night was def a value. The competed chocolate mouse cake and the chocolate martini were a perfect ending to a very enjoyable evening.

great location as it is in Old City and just a few blocks from Penns landing if you want to take a walk after lunch or dinner. The service was great from Marco our server who was very nice to us and our son and was available when needed to the manager who helped out when my 4 year old spilled some water. The food was good but not great as we had some great dishes and some not so great. The Tuna Tartar was nice and well seasoned as where the positiano fries, the eggplant parm was very tasty. However, the spaghetti bolognase we ordered for our son was way to spicy for both him and my wife although I enjoyed it but I love very spicy food, and the lobster ravioli was tasty but just a little bit over salted. Overall it was a great experience and we loved the service and enjoyed the food enough that we agreed we would return for a second opinion and to maybe try the hyped up burrata.

The food was bland and overpriced. The waiter was clearly frustrated and not particularly friendly. The appearance is dated and not nearly as nice as the photos.

Positano is always a great place to go. Our server was too busy and forgot to get us bread at the table (dinner time), but after we realized everybody had a nice tray of bread on their table, we asked and got it right away. The whole night, it felt like the server was too busy and we had to continuously flag him to get drinks, water, check, etc. but I guess that is expected on a Saturday busy night

My wife and i always enjoy the food, service and ambiance of pasitano every time we get the chance to go. We especially love to go on summer nights when windows and doorways are open to the breeze. We've never had an unenjoyable experience there.

The food was very good, but didn't eat much. Got home feeling a bit hungry.

The room was too loud for me. I couldn't hear the other people at my table and that was so frustrating because the conversation was fascinating.

Highly recommend the calamari, chips and guac and the crab meat taco appetizers! The brunch burger was good, but needed more flavor. I ended up putting some guac from our appetizer on it to enhance. Overall, very good, GREAT value on the bottomless mimosas. Would return for sure!

A friend and I went there for Brunch on a Sunday to enjoy their bottomless Mimosas and Limoncello. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was like stepping into a wonderful beach restaurant in the middle of the city! All servers were attentive and kind!

Love the outdoor seating!

I've never been disappointed at Positano, and Friday's dinner was no exception. Fantastic salmon and branzino, delicious grilled artichoke salad. Only drawback was the exceptionally LOUD ambiance.

It was our first time eating at Positano. We usually choose very carefully where to eat especially when we meet with our collegian son for dinner, for we wish to feed him with a good meal (a deprived home cooked-meal collegian.) We enjoyed our time there the moment we set foot in the restaurant. The host was especially very patient while we were deciding where to seat ( inside or outdoor?). That set to moods for the evening. We ordered 7 dishes for three people (wanted to feed our starved son ), and we finished literally every plate, and plus deserts!!! The portion was not overwhelming, just enough. Our waiter was courteous, friendly and always with a big smile :)) The weather couldn’t be more perfect (credit to Mother Nature!)

Please, don’t change a thing, from food to service. We appreciate your establishment, money and time well spent! Thank you!
PS. I, alone managed to finish two delicious cocktails without falling asleep (very lightweight!).

Our server was excellent. Drinks well mixed. The calamari appetizer was very good. BUT the sauce of the lamb bolognese tasted like Chef Boyardee and the Chicken Al Lmone had a mass-produced taste. Maybe best to stick with drinks & appetizers.

Great restaurant for special occasions! A bit pricey but it'll be an experience! Their Burrata was probably the best I've ever had! The main course was delicious as well! The restaurant can get noisy, so not recommended for a quiet conversation kinda dinner...

Upon arrival I was informed the cost for valet parking is $21. Valet is independent of the restaurant and this should be mentioned.
The restaurant was quite noisy which made it difficult to converse. My steak which I requested medium was sliced, overcooked and dry. The portion was definitely not worth the cost. The staff was pleasant.
I guess all in all my expectations were higher than they should have been.

SERVICE MAKING THE RESERVATIONA AND DINING WAS ACCOMODATING AND DID NOT RUSH OUR LARGE PARTY AT ANY TIME. THANK YOU.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. We started off with the Arancini and Eggplant Caponata appetizers. They were both excellent. I got the Halibut dinner special and my wife ordered the Lasagna. The presentation was very nice and both dinners had excellent flavor. We looked online and it said that on Sundays it was BYOB and no Corkage fees. We brought a bottle of wine and our server opened it and was very nice and helpful with the menu since it was our first time at the restaurant. Since they were out of Tiramisu, we decided to split the Chocolate Mousse. It was not your typical Mousse. It had a couple different layers including a crunchy layer that I think was crumbled cookies. The desert was great. Not too rich and sweet and enough chocolate to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth after the meal. I think the restaurant has a large varied menu to satisfy most diners and is an excellent value for the money. I will definitely come back the next time I am in Philly to try some new things. Service was great and you can sit inside or on an outside patio which is very nice.
