Went last night to Positano's with a friend. I ordered a pasta dish off the menu she ordered a special. Both of us are teachers so we can read but.... When the bill came we were shocked that she was charged $6.00 for soup because on the special menu it said Soup (no price listed) Appetizers (prices listed) and Entrees... More

Back in NJ visiting family - asked our hotel for a good local Italian restaurant. They recommended Positano which we loved! Arrived about 8:30PM during the week and still had many customers.

Positano is one of my favorite restaurants. We live nearby and it is our "go to" place for take out. I've enjoyed lunch, dinner, take out and catering from Positano. While they serve traditional Italian staples, they also have a very imaginative special's menu - it is the only restaurant my husband will order veal. My favorite dish is the... More

Much more than a pizza place. Be prepared to wait 15 to 20 minutes, worth the wait. Veal Positano is a favorite of mine. The garlic knots are terrific.

We enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner in a fun family restaurant. We waited @ 10 minutes to be seated at height of Friday night rush but the time went quickly since the hosts were fun and entertaining! The wait servers were attentive and everything from appetizers, main course to dessert tasted wonderful. We will definitely return next time we visit... More

The food was tasteless. I got the pasta with broccoli and sausage. If it didn't have sausage, it would taste like nothing. The wings weren't good and neither was the bruschetta. I went here because it had gotten such rave reviews but I was extremely disappointed. I wouldn't go here ever again.

The food here is consistently excellent. Eggplant Rollatine was exceptional. Complimentary garlic nots are a nice touch. Service is prompt and efficient. Definitely worth a trip!
