We came with no expectations but boy we got more than just great food. We got great service and a great view of Positano. The food just tasted authentic, from the eggplant parmigiana, with its tomato-based sauce to their mac n cheese (so cheesy-yummy)!!!
Highly recommended. Even their dessert was brilliant. Will definitely be back and drag my family members and friends. Thank you Imran and Kamila for taking time out to speak to us. Your food and presentation definitely had attention to detail. Keep up the great work!

Thank DewiDewi

This is the second time we have eaten at this restaurant and both times it has not disappointed. Great atmosphere on a Sunday evening when the street is closed off. Buskers and twinkling lights in a street with a variety of restaurants. Lots to choose from but you can’t go past a great Italian place. The host and staff were friendly and attentive. We will definitely be coming back soon.

Thank Michele B

My wife and I had dinner at Positano Risto and the food, as well as service was first rate. The restaurant is quite quaint and located near Little India and only a short cab ride from our hotel. We had pasta and risotto for main, as well as calamari and bruschetta for starters not to mention the deserts. Wow!! We spoke to the manager who was extremely friendly and welcoming along with his staff. We will definitely be back to enjoy another wonderful meal at this restaurant.

Went there for my birthday lunch with my family. Tried several main dishes but their calzone win all. Read a review from Caucasian lady that the food is less authentic, that's unavoidable because this restaurant is halal complianced meaning no wine, no alcohol, no pork and no lard are permitted, hence taste can never be that authentic. But I have a little feedback to give. If your staff could be a little friendlier will be good though. None of them were smiling to us during our visit. My preggy daughter and her hubby came early but were not invited in until they confirmed that we had a reservation and all know that Singapore is hot and humid. When her burger came, it was slightly burnt. Everyone of us in the restaurant could smell the burnt bread and you can see from the picture. Seeing the unfriendly looking staff, she did not want to make a fuss and just ate it. We would like to thank the management for the complimentary birthday cake. The chocolate cake was very good. We also bought the molten choc volcano cake and it was really good! I would like to give the credit to your chef. We will come again but hope to see a more welcoming staff.

If you are Italian food lover, a must visit place. A variety of Italian mean options - myself ordered lasagna and really enjoyed the taste. It would be good before ordering, just ask their signature dishes.

For lasagna, initially it was not cooked well however the owner of restaurant Mr. Imran personally taken care of it and came well service recovery. He really understands what does it mean by a good customer service.

Overall it was a good experience, would like to visit again.
