    Their kitchen closes at 9pm but they did not tell us until 30 min before our reservation which was at 8:30. So basically as soon as we sat down we had to put our orders in.

    Dinner was amazing, the sauce was to die for, very complex flavor profile. They also have a good wine collection and it pairs well with the food. I had the gluten free pasta and it wasn't different from real pasta at all.

    Welcoming service, great food, and an outdoor patio that they’ve rigged up quite nicely in what was their parking. A terrific non-corporate local restaurant.

    I highly recomnend dining at Locanda Positano! We dined on a Friday evening, reservations at 6:30, but were hungry eariler so called and they told us to come on ahead. It had been a 90 degree day, but the patio was a comfortable temperature, so we chose a table outside. Staff as always was PERFECT. Attentive to details, but they know when to leave you alone too. I had the Scottish Salmon for the first time AND this is the first time anywhere that a chef seasoned everything with a such perfect balance that I did not want to add pepper or salt. The steamed spinach had a fresh and light flavor that wasn't overpowered by garlic, the sauce on the salmon enhanced the wonderful flavor of the fish without disguising it. The Mashed Potatoes had the right amount of butter built into each bite. My Muscato d'asti was exactly what I wanted to complement my food choices. 12 plus stars out of 10...Locanda Positano did it again. Exceeded Expectations!!!

    Swordfish was a little dry. Branzino and pasta was very good. I would have liked the option of pasta or mashed potatoes as a side with fish. Prefer pasta.

    The food was good. The service was cordial and polite. We ordered a bottle of wine which never arrived for some odd reason. Ended up having to ask for wine by the glass after our main course arrived. The maitre apologized profusely but it is what it is.

    I am truly perplexed why there is so many great reviews. Their food is not fresh (frozen spinach served), chicken parmesan was flat and purple-ish in the inside, melon served with speck was not ripe. Hands down for the price point was the most disappointing experience I can recall in Los Angeles. They have serious nerve to charge the prices they are.

    There are several positive aspects of this location, including the ambiance, the service, and the food. I am concerned about the parking situation, the traffic in the area, and the proximity to non-food establishments. Despite the fact that a restaurant cannot control what other businesses sell in close proximity to its own, these businesses are reflected in the restaurant itself. I enjoyed the salmon's texture and the light sauce that accompanied it. The wine complemented the meal well, and my guest and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here. As a result of a large party arriving with babies in toe, we took our leave due to the ambiance becoming that of a child's birthday party. Celebrating with friends and family is a good feeling and a welcomed addition of energy to the establishment. However, when you are enjoying quiet conversation and exchanging knowing glances, after the tone changes, it is best to change venues. In spite of this, we found the server to be attentive without appearing to need our attention. My favorite memory (aside from the look in her eyes when we toasted) was the bar to my near left as it was a centerpiece worth mentioning.

    The owner, Michelangelo, and his manager, Donato, we’re so warm and welcoming for their wonderfully prepared food. Large portions made the prices a bit more palatable, and well worth it. Offering fine Italian wines by the glass is uncommonly great and a key reason we’ll be back!

    Amazing experience, one of our best dining experiences ever! We’ve travelled many times to Italy and we can safely say that our meal was top notch, without exception. My boar tagatelle was amazing as was my wife’s short rib pasta dish as was the spectacular burrata beefsteak and calamari appetizer. Simply incredible experience and hope to be back soon! The service was the best, enough to take care of us, but not pushy at all. Excellent outside dining area that we thoroughly enjoyed. Grazie!
