Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of classic Italian cuisine at Positano Ristorante Italiano in Bethesda.

Family-run Positano serves a menu of authentic homemade Italian fare in a warm and inviting setting. Diners and their taste buds are welcomed with appetizers including fried eggplant bruschetta ($10) and savory garlic bread ($4). A plethora of pasta options includes the lasagna bolognese ($17), layers of delicate pasta and savory meat sauce that tenderly punch the mouth with flavor. Slayers of appetite krakens will savor house-special ciopino del pescatore, a free-swim of jumbo shrimp, sea scallops, mussels, and calamari in a sauté sea of garlic and white wine ($28). Or ravenously RSVP to the veal matrimonio, a matrimony of sausage and herb-filled veal and chicken breast, garbed in a raiment of marsala wine and flanked by attendants of penne and eggplant ($28). Finish with a classic Italian dessert of cannoli alla siciliana filled with sweet ricotta cheese and chocolate chips ($6), paired with rich espresso ($2).

Positano's cheery color scheme and painted ocean vistas provide a comfortable, yet sophisticated dining escape for noshers and nibblers of all ages. Pull up a chair in the dining room, which is decorated with warmly hued tiles and shutter-accented walls, or relax on the vine-bedecked outdoor patio to avoid offending Mother Nature, who doesn’t react nicely when left out of dinner plans.

This is a family owned restaurant. The food is prepared from old family recipes and prices are very reasonable. The regular menu has a lot of choices.
