Both the service and food has been exceptional on both occasions that I've dined here. I would honestly say that this restaurants ranks as my favourite in Guildford right now! What's also surprising is the modest pricing of the food here, well worth every penny.

With an award-winning menu, Positano Restaurant specialises in southern Italian cuisine, serving dishes from risotto to creative fish recipes. The Elizabethan building boasts a fantastic history, authentic original décor, and a well-stocked bar.

Offering healthy recipes using fresh and natural ingredients, the Positano menu is vast. The tasty dishes include spaghetti con cozze, with succulent mussels submerged in white wine, chilli, garlic and parsley. Another favourite fish dish is the caciucco di pesce, a traditional Italian dish with an array of mussels, calamari, sword fish, tiger prawns and langoustine, muddled in a cherry tomato and white wine sauce. For non-fish eaters, a selection of veal, beef, risotto and pizzas is also available and Positano restaurant prepares all dishes fresh to order.

The simple décor, with wood panelled walls and exposed beams, makes a great backdrop for relaxing with a cocktail or glass of wine from the bar.

A 4-minute drive from Guildford Rail Station, Positano Restaurant in Guildford offers authentic Italian dining.

    Staff were all very friendly and efficient, great menu choices with extra daily specials.

    Our table felt a bit squashed up against the fireplace, but the service and food were very good. The sardine starter was delicious, and my portion of salmon with saffron sauce as a main was very generous.

    We have eaten here before, but it was some months ago, and this was the first time we had lunch at Positano. The food and service were excellent, I particularly enjoyed the potabello mushroom wrapped in Palma ham with goats cheese! My only regret is that we do not get to visit often enough.

    Not as great i would say there was a massive portion of fishh in a saffran souse with no veg , staff members very nice and presentable but did not even proposed Vegetables so left half of it. Fish was overcooked . Paper tablecloth takes a high quality away from you you would go up in ranking if a proper table cloth was on. Booking service very good.

    This was my fourth lunchtime visit to Positano, and each time they have made it a very enjoyable experience. The welcome and the service is superb, the food tastes as good as it looks, and the bill at the end of the meal is extremely reasonable. It's just a real pleasure to dine there.

    Best features: building (beams) ambience (nice lighting and music) good service and plenty of nice food to choose from on the menu (could have a few more veggies with the meat dishes though)
