Excellent food. Lovely staff. Nice atmosphere. Have been a few times now when visiting Bowness and have yet to be disappointed. The fish dishes have been exceptional and the cheese board a treat. That's not to say other dishes are not equally good - they are.

Been lots of times, it's always lovely. The lobster ravioli was super. On a Thursday in December when other restaurants in Bowness were quiet, the positano was full!

Firstly advanced booking is recommended as every time we have been here they have had to turn people away. I love this place, the food is always amazing and this time I even requested an off menu starter (insalate caprese) which they were happy to accommodate. The portions are generous without being too large, the ingredients they use are amazing... More
