Positano: "A real Italian treat" Positano Tip by Sans70

Positano, Edinburgh: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Fantastic authentic Italian restaurant located in Newington just outside city district. I stumbled on this place after looking at so many others to eat. What appealed to me was that it looked bright inside, clean (in fact you can see the chefs at work in the kitchen). All the staff were extremely friendly, food was fresh and bought to the table quite quickly. The restaurant was busy for a Monday night, but not crowded at all. The food was very tasty, coffee hot and fresh including delectable mini chocolates served with your bill. The food was very reasonably priced, about £15 for two courses, glass of wine and coffee. I would happily return to this place again.

Favorite Dish: Linguine Pesto-freshly made, al-dente pasta. Very generous serving, but not too much so you could not eat it all.
