We had made reservations for 4 for a late 2PM lunch on a Wednesday. Requested outdoor seating as it was a beautiful spring day. We were offered a table near the main entrance. Asked to be moved and were reseated by the hostess at a table in the dining room. There was a table next to an open sliding door (not an entrance) that was being bussed and we asked to be moved there. The hostess was a bit annoyed at having to move us again but complied. I ordered a glass of Sancerre and it was delivered in a glass that had a red wine stain on the rim. Asked for a replacement and eventually was told that they were out of Sancerre. The oysters that I ordered were very good; unfortunately the gnocchi ordered as the main course were tepid at best. Would I return? Probably not, unless someone else made reservations and invited me

Positanos has been the place for me during the whole pandemic, either through take out or outdoor dining. Last Easter was takeout and this Easter was in person - outdoor dining. Food was fabulous (as always) and everything else was perfect (especially the farro salad, the clams and spaghetti and the gelato)!

The brunch burger was sent out without the egg, it was a pre packaged burger, not hand formed. For 18.00 it definitely should have been fresh meat. The salmon tasted slightly fishy.

Over all it was just good, nothing outstanding.
We went for brunch. Our waiter was very good. I did not really like their recipe for sangria which seemed to be just red wine and soda water - no fruit. All the food we ordered needed a bit more flavor cause it was kinda bland. Not bad just bland.
It was bright, airy, and clean, an overall comfortable space.

There was a private party in one room and the screaming and yelling from that group was heard all over the restaurant and was a bit unpleasant at times. It seems this is the place to go if you are a trendy twenty something. All the young women were wearing some version of ripped denim, white midriff tops, and white boots 🤔

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Positano. I moved into the area a few weeks ago and I’m learning the lay of the land. My friend who came to visit, and I decided randomly that we wanted to go Brunch so I looked up places in Philadelphia had Bottomless Brunch options.

We saw Positano, and reserved a space on OpenTable. They provide up to 15 minute delay, in the event that you’re running late.

When we arrived, we didn’t have to wait. They hostess took us to our table. The menu’s were virtual, and the tables were definitely socially distanced.

The waitstaff moved very efficiently! The food was good, and the ambiance was overall amazing. My friend and I talked about how much we loved the navy ceilings and the big windows.

The only area of improvement that I could say, was that in our area, there wasn’t any music playing. That could’ve been intentional, but I’m not sure.

All in All, great first brunching experience in my new area, and I will be coming back again!

Positano coast is one of my favorite restaurants. You feel like you’re on a vacation whenever you step inside. The service is always top tier. Kind, quick and attentive. The food is always delicious, perfectly prepared and you’re always given perfect portions. I would recommend Positano coast to everyone that’s looking for a nice meal and a fulfilling experience.

We made a 6:30reservation for outside dining and waited 30 minutes for our table. We were offered inside dining when we arrived because our table was not available. Appetizers and small plates are good but pricey. Dessert came and coffee arrived after we finished.

We sat outside on a small balcony on the 2nd street side of the restaurant. It was beautiful, very quiet and they provided gas fire pits for a little extra warmth. The service was phenomenal - our waitress, Valeria, was exceptional. Very knowledgeable about the drinks, food, and restaurant in general. She was very attentive and polite throughout our entire meal. The food was also excellent - grilled octopus, squid ink linguini, and a striped bass special were all hits!

We loved our waiter, Martin, and enjoyed the ambiance and the whole eating experience! We thought the food was delicious; fantastic Ceasar salad, wonderful sea urchin and crab black linguine and seafood risotto! Martinis were excellent but very expensive.
