This is the best restaurant in the neighborhood! High quality seafood, delicious Italian foods & melt in your mouth chops. Every time I eat here I cannot wait to come back. Not cheap, not high-end either, but worth every penny. The staff is very friendly & the daily specials are excellent. With all the options it may take some time to decide what to order, but guaranteed to be perfect!

Moderate for noise level due to outdoor dining. Otherwise we had a phenomenal date night at Positano. We ordered 3 specials which were all amazing. Multiple people checked on us during our meal. I can’t wait for indoor dining to return to enjoy in the winter.

The bread was great. The rest of the food was good but you can get good in a lot of Italian restaurants in Bay Ridge.

We made a reservation and we arrived a few minutes early. Staff was in a hurry to get us to leave because the restaurant was closing. Explained we went by reservation availability and that if they were closing at the time we had a reservation they should have called us. They didn’t even have us reserved to come in

My husband and I went for our first anniversary and had a wonderful time. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is great! I was so nervous about outdoor dining because I’m 7 months pregnant but, they took all precautions. Really a great experience!! Thank you!

Positano was PERFECT for outdoor dining during this crazy time. We drove from Manhattan because someone told us it was that good and the outdoor space was spread out and comfortable.

Food delicious, huge menu, nicest staff, great table with social distancing. We had two different pasta dishes, eggplant appetizer, caesar salad, string beans. a

Will go back soon and highly recommend.

Nice setting outside, but some tables are too close for social distancing. Food was fine, really liked Beef Carpaccio, main dishes are a little expensive, drinks are good and not expensive.

Positano is always a great choice. Emerging out of the pandemic has been a challenge for many, but Positano has done a great job. Our appetizers, Octopus, Mussels and Italian Egg rolls were excellent as expected. Our mains were equally delicious and just what we needed coming out of isolation.
This restaurant knows how to make your dining experience exceptional! Thank You!

We had a reservation for 7:30. We were not seated until 8:30. We placed our order around 8:45. At 9:45 we left without being served. Our waiter did not bring over our drinks we had ordered from the bar for an hour. Our food was no where to be found. We told our server why we were leaving and he made no attempt to rectify the situation. He just said okay and cleared the table for the next group. So unprofessional! We tried closing our bar tab before leaving and it took over 20minutes. The bartender wasn’t wearing a mask and was talking over all of the drinks. Eek! I am very disappointed because of all of the stellar reviews I have seen.

I can not rate it! I was called and told due to the weather they were canceling my reservation. So I figured I would have it delivered. Also I was told no delivery was be done. I understand that it was pouring rain and the outside seating was closed, but no deliveries????
So now I am not sure if I want to give it another try!!
