No - just good Italian food and friendly service staff. You'll enjoy it! I have also been at a private luncheon event at Positano's and they did an excellent job. The food was excellent, the service thoughtful and efficient, and the price reasonable.

Wonderfully quiet for a restful dinner. Great service and great food. Just the right amount of food. Some places charge more and give you way too much food. We liked the reasonable sized portions.

It was ok but not particularly great. A run of the mill Italian place.

From Our Editors

Jimmy Traettino has worked at Positano Restaurant since his parents opened it in 1977. Now the owner, Jimmy proudly runs the family operation. "When you have a family business, it?s literally like your home. So you treat people when they come in like they?re entering your house," he told Bethesda Now.

A Glimpse at the Menu

The restaurant's entrees include traditional pasta dishes as well as more elaborate meals, such as stuffed potato dumplings pomodoro, filled with ricotta cheese and spinach, and served housemade tomato sauce. Diners conclude their meals with espresso-infused tiramisu, lemon cheesecake, and other desserts crafted in house.

A Look Inside

With stucco walls featuring vivid landscape murals, and gleaming terra-cotta tile floors, The eatery also offers diners a charming ambience usually reserved for Venetian trattorias. The interior's gleaming terra-cotta tile floors complement its stucco walls, which feature vivid murals of the Italian coast. This aesthetic extends to the ivy-covered patio, which Bethesda Magazine called "one of the most beautiful in the county."
