Awesome atmosphere, Retirement Home taste

I read the review that said the restaurant looks amazing but the food tastes like a TV dinner, and unfortunately it's true. I couldn't believe how bland the chicken marsala was. I've seriously had better Stouffer's meals outta my oven before. Great place to have a few drinks, but the food just plain sucks. I'd rather eat at a taco bell.

Great, good and bad

Great atmosphere, especially for the summer. Beautiful place overall. Great, attentive service. BUT.... portions are terribly small and you pay a high price for the ambiance, Oysters at 3.00 per is a little crazy. 19.00 for small appetizer is high. Drinks are good size, but overly expensive as well. I could deal with the drinks if they gave you more food. DO NOT valet here: The valet on 2 different occasions took 30-... view more

Beautiful atmosphere and great food.

My husband and I have been going to Positano Coast for years--it was Lambertis Cucina when we first went.(same company). But I must say that since it has been Positano Coast it has changed in really great ways. When we first went, the service was not consistent,but the food was always good. Since then it has gotten much better and more consistent. What I love is the atmosphere. This is a beautiful restaurant and extr... view more

My favorite Italian in Philly!

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and so here?s mine: the negative reviews below are CRAZY! There?s many reasons why Positano got that philly mag thing. The atmosphere is so inviting and different, the service is friendly and the food, well isn?t that what philly mag was talking about ? it?s fantastic! Instead of talking about how inaccurate what everyone else said below is, I?d rather mention what I love ab... view more

Not Deserving to be On Philly's top 50

I never had the interest to try Positano Coast until I saw it was named one of the the top 50 restaurants in Philadelphia by Philly Mag. So we decided to try it. The restaurant has great ambience. We sat at the bar and got seated at 8:30 when we had a 8:00 reservation. The dining room was virtually empty. I had already checked out the menu online and was very much looking forward to it, only to find out they were ser... view more

Lousy wine, unprofessional service, miniscule food. Not coming back.

I agree with the two previous reviews, Positano fails to impress on every count. We showed up on time yet were directed to wait in the bar for 40 minutes for our table. We purchased pricey wine that tasted like something out of a jug. Our waiter was friendly but obviously rushed and barely had time to tell us about the specials. \r \r I ordered the branzino and my husband ordered the osso bucco. I have to explain tha... view more

Expecting a whole lot more, got a whole lot less

Took my girlfriend out on what I thought would be a romantic Valentine's Day dinner. Upon entering the restaurant, a half hour early, the maitre de looked at me as if I had just insulted her mother by showing up early. She didnt hide her snide looks and directed me to the bar, where I purchased two way over priced glasses of wine. When she did decide to seat us, looking as if she was granting us the gift of life, we ... view more

Dont read if you cant handle to truth

Let me start with a quick preface - yes, I have had many excellent dinners in Philly, and no, Im not averse to giving credit when it is due. So, on to the review. Sat night reservation. Seated 1/2 hour after arranged time; not too surprising given how busy it was. Server was nice enough, although clearly over-stretched given how busy it was. As for the meal? Lets just say supermarket frozen pasta tastes the same. Don... view more

Great food and atmosphere

I've been here a few times now, twice in a large group and once with a date - and their food is consistently fresh and delicious. The service can be slow, but then, our group had 18 people so that might have had something to do with it (and the time that I went with a date, we just ordered way too much food). \r \r For appetizers, the oysters and the grilled seppia (squid-like seafood) were very good and the prosciut... view more
