Five Stars, Then & Now

The first restaurant that I ate in upon moving to the Washington DC area in 1980 was Positano. My relatives who recruited me to Maryland had been frequenting the place for a couple years and had built a relationship with its owners. I remember it fondly, but after a few years the owners closed up shop, and went to italy. When they returned they re-established the restaurant, but out of site-out of mind, I never seemed to remember it when thinking of a new place to go.

Last night when a relative came in from New York she requested that we have dinner at Positano. She had heard wonderful things about the place from her friends in DC, and my reaction was “Great – I know the place!”.

But I had forgotten how really good it is!. Our party of eight was seated immediately at a comfortable table with doting service. The restaurant was beautiful inside, the menu simple to understand and reasonably priced, and the food was outstanding. All arrived hot and delectible. The big winners were the Snapper and Chicken Marsala. The Canneloni looked beautiful and the Eggplant Penne delectible. The kitchen was kind enough to alter one of the dishes for someone in our party with food digestion difficulties. A great experience which will have us coming back again, and again.

Don;t neglect the dessert menu – the Cannollis are out of this world.

Chicken Marsala

Well cooked, well presented, with pasta and vegetables. I would order again.
