    This was our first time making reservations. We were placed near the kitchen door, which was not a problem, but interfered with the beauty of the floor. The noise level was out of this world loud, but I like a quiet dinner, so I should have asked, I guess. Service was great. Food was pretty good.

    I love this place! My favorite is the tuna tartare; 3 out of 6 people at our table had that. The calamari also has this really food sauce. I have the Chicken Milanese as my meal. I have that a lot and it did not disappoint here. The lobster skillet could definitely use more lobster and a bit more flavor. Only other complaint was that the mimosas are a little weak.

    We started with the scamorza and fried veggies. Both were delicious! Then I had the gnocchi, which were very abundant and great. My date had a sea salad, also delicious and abundant. That's why we could not afford a dessert but next time will try. Service was impeccable.

    Excellent sidecar, maybe the best ever. The bartenders here are fantastic. Excellent eggplant dish, good roasted beet salad, all the food was good except I thought the short rib bolognese was short on meat. We are 12 year patrons and come back often.

    Food was fantastic, delicious, perfectly seasoned and fresh. Was seated near party room it was very loud and distracting. Would have preferred a different, quieter location, as I had requested when making reservation. Otherwise a great time.

    Positano Coast by Aldo LambertiResponded on October 18, 2022Hi Laura, Thank you very much for the excellent review!! We are so sorry about the noise level! We just finished a remodel and have decided to add more acoustic tiles to the ceilings to better absorb the sound. Please try us again soon when the project is complete. Thank you

    Food was mediocre at best. Risotto was like soup. Lobster ravioli had no lobster. Waiter couldn’t make recommendations for wine.

    Positano Coast by Aldo LambertiResponded on October 18, 2022Andrea, I am so very sorry to see such a low review from last week. I have already spoken with Chef regarding the consistency of the risotto and I can only apologizes for the ravioli at this point. Please reach out to me directly so that I may apologize to you directly and attempt to invite you back to make up for your previous visit. Thank you for taking the time to leave the review so that we can improve. Shawn Leahey, GM Shawn@positanocoast.net 215 238 0499

We did just finish a remodel and we will be adding more acoustic tiles to the ceilings in the main dining rooms. Please feel free to try us again in a few weeks once that project is complete. It should drastically reduce the noise. Thank you again.

    I asked for the burger medium but it was well done. We were left without cutlery after appetiser and no one came back so I had to take cutlery from another table. We were served entree before the appetiser plates were cleared and the server said “there’s no room” which clearly wasn’t our fault but it felt like it was. I have been to this restaurant before and the experience was much better but it wasn’t great last night.

I am so very sorry to hear about your experience with us the last time you visited.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly so that I can personally apologize and invite you back in. Thank you again for your time and patronage. Shawn Leahey, GM Shawn@positanocoast.net

    Mixed experience this time. My reservation was for an outdoor table for Happy Hour, and expected to be seated in the same area as on my previous Happy Hour visit, which had been on the balcony. Instead, we were seated on the street level, with the umbrellas blowing so wildly that we feared they would fall on our heads, and we were very uncomfortable in the cold wind. When we asked to move to a table on the balcony, the waiter gave us a “song & dance” about why that wasn’t possible. Later, much later another waiter came by and when asked said yes, we could sit upstairs on the balcony. That’s what we did, and there were plenty of empty tables up there, no problem, and there we had an excellent waiter, and the food was delicious.

    We celebrated my friend's birthday and overall that was a positive experience. We had a good time and everything went smoothly. I asked for a candle for dessert and our dessert came with a "Happy Birthday!" inscription and the presentation was great. If only the dessert itself lived up to the level of other dishes (we had apple tart, perhaps it was our mistake)... The restaurant has various dining areas and can accommodate various preferences of the level of noise. We asked for a quite place and our table was in a very quite place, great street views and open windows (September).

    Celebrating a friends birthday. The service was amazing, especially considering we had special requests. They were accommodating, patient, and kind. The waiter was impeccable providing service before we even needed to ask. There were plenty of delicious choices and the prices were reasonable for the value of the meal. The cocktails were unique and flavorful. With a full bar offering a wide range of quality of liquor. They also provide complimentary bread (plus one for me) and beautiful scenery for quick pictures. Overall beautiful experience.
