    Food was great, the service ( Thilini ? From Sri Lanka) was excellent. There were only a handful of diners so the ambiance was quiet.

    Service and food was excellent portion sizes are plentiful without over facing you everything we had we enjoyed peroni was ice cold Prosecco also and reasonably priced compared to other establishments Staff very professional and attentive Restaurant was spotlessly clean as was cutlery and table only negative is it was very quiet when we dined and as it’s a good sized place it lacked atmosphere (7pm sat night ) other people did dine a little later but far from full Can recommended the food which is the key component will dine here again

    Service was so bad, so slow waited over 30minutes to even get a drink. The drinks then came all wrong. Ingredients were missing too. Food took ages, we had to ask for bread, oil, salt. Sad thing is we’ve been coming for years, and bought our friends for the first time. Very disappointed, will not be returning.

    The food was borderline inedible. Meatball appetizer was way too salty, the arancini were mushy and rice way over cooked. Bruschetta was the best item of the appetizers. The osso buco I had did not have much flavor and tasted off, the eggplant parmigiana my date had was flavorless and soggy, neither of us had more than a couple bites of each. The manager did offer to bring us both something else but at that point neither of us wanted to take a chance on other menu items. This is not an authentic Italian restaurant anymore, I had eaten here in 2019 and really enjoyed it then so this was a disappointing experience.

    We spent New Year's Eve at the Positano restaurant. Everything was perfect. The decoration was very beautiful, the food mas wonderful but the main thing was the service given to us by all the Staff. It was a wonderful experience for us. Few times have we been so well attended as we were in this spectacular restaurant. My wife and I are very grateful to the entire team.

    El pan y la burrata están espectacular. Los cocteles con alcohol muy buenos y los meseros increíblemente atentos y serviciales pero su nivel de inglés es cuestionable, así que cuesta comunicarse. Los platos principales honestamente bastante promedio, caro para lo que ofrece. Eso sí, celebré mi cumpleaños y no puedo terminar de explicar el nivel de detalles que tuvieron conmigo. En atención 10 de 10
