    What a fantastic lunch! The staff were so wonderfully kind to my little boy and he ate the biggest portion of spaghetti bolognese he has ever had! Not surprising at all because it was so delicious. We will definitely come back!

    As usual, the food was great and the service very attentive. Never once I got disappointed. Best place in Guildford! I'm not sure why I need to write at least 120 characters... I said all I needed!

    Couldn’t have been more friendly. Great service and so welcoming. Food was great we had the lasagne and beef ragu. It was lovely but could have done with a little more seasoning

    Been here a while ago and had a great experience and didn't disappoint second time. Set lunch was great value and the menu choice was varied and food was excellent. Service was fast and staff couldn't do enough for us. Highly recommend

    Wonderful welcome and friendly attentive service. They remembered it was a birthday celebration dinner and did a birthday ice cream with candles and sang happy birthday ????. Food was delicious.

    The food and place where really good. I would definitely come again when in Guildford. And a few more pointless words so the review is long enough

    Thoroughly enjoyed lunch in this truly authentic little restaurant. Delicious pasta and great service, with additional COVID measures in place. Very happy to recommend a visit, but booking is a must.

    The restaurant was incredible, the staff were so polite and kind. We had a baby with us and had to bring the buggy as well. They were so helpful with carrying the buggy upstairs and making it clear that next time we book they’ll give us an easier table we just have to mention it. The staff were very talkative and the food came very quickly and was absolutely delicious! Will definitely be visiting again!

    Pre COVID I have been lucky enough to visit Italy several times - including the town of Positano. The Positano restaurant in Guildford is simply that of Italian food and service outside of Italy. I am so happy you are still open and that you stay open in these difficult times Pauline

    Food was good value.staff were lovely. Place was clean and covid safe. No rush with service and they were happy to provide what ever we ask for. When we left they asked when we would be back. Hopefully it wont be to long

    The food was delicious, the staff knowledgable and the setting cozy and romantic. We enjoyed some excellent wine recommendations that paired perfectly with our choices to spaghetti vongole and Ndjua pizza. To start we tried the Sicilian arancini which had so much flavour, and the deep fried pizza (which is light and delicious!) which was just like I’d seen in Naples. This is a really lovely, traditional restaurant that serves incredible food with pride. I’m annoyed that we’ve lived here so long and never been before!!

    We decided to risk going out to celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary and we had a lovely evening at Positano's with excellent food and service and we felt very safe at this very uncertain time.

    Unfortunately all the Covid precautions such as masks/face guards,screens etc suppress the usual atmosphere,the staff were very attentive and welcoming,our starter(meat balls) was excellent but our main course(Genoese) was disappointing and not hot enough. David P Samuel
