    Delicious lunch in this busy restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed my Spaghetti Vongole and my niece enjoyed her salmon salad. The latter was so large that she took the rest with her for dinner!

    It was the perfect place for our family, cosy and yummy. We'll come back to eat in their lovely terrace. They were super friendly and the food was served promptly.

    An absolutely wonderful Italian restaurant and the most authentic food we have enjoyed outside of Rome! The ambiance and decor is superb and Franco and his team provide fantastic and attentive service and beautiful food which is value for money. We liked it so much we went back twice in the four days we were in Guildford. Highly recommended and we look forward to our next visit.

    Everything was excellent, very friendly staff and good food. We had starter, main and dessert - all good and various vegetarian options. Nearly no waiting time as well.

    Both mine and my wife's dishes could have been hotter, when served, as they cooled down quite quickly. Still tasty though. Overall still a bit squashy, but still a good atmosphere.

    Had another fantastic meal at positana. It was lovely to be out for a meal again and to see my mum after so long. The staff were amazing, it started to pour with rain and yet they dealt with it quickly and professionally and still with a smile on! Will keep coming back!

    I honestly can't speak highly enough of this restaurant! We went for a 21st birthday lunch and sat in their semi-covered outside seating (it was the middle of the afternoon on a warm day so the temperature was lovely, but it looked like there were heaters pointing towards all the tables for the evening service!). The service was impeccable, with reasonable wait times and incredibly friendly and attentive servers - we were seen to very quickly, and didn't need to ask twice for anything at all. The food was beyond fantastic! Starters, mains, and desserts were all incredible. Absolutely everything we ordered was delicious; I think we'd go as far to say it was faultless! (As an aside - if you're a seafood lover, I'd HIGHLY recommend the swordfish fillet!) We're already thinking about when we can justify visiting again, because there was so much on the menu we wanted to try. I seriously can't recommend them enough!!
