Restaurant description

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.

    Positano is honestly my favourite place to visit in Guildford. We go every year for my birthday and they always without fail make you feel so welcome and special. I even got a birthday pudding and got sung to which was so lovely. I recommend Positano to everyone, when you’re in there you forget your in Guildford and sometimes think you’re in Italy. Can’t fault at all, can’t wait to come back!

    Excellent customer service, staffs are so friendly and welcoming. One of staff advise us not to order a lot because the meal portion is large enough, which was very helpful (very full with appetizer and main pasta). COVID_19 secured and feel confident with staffs protective equipment. Foods are delicious with large portions. Dessert is also very tasty.

    Staff really nice, food was delicious! Could have a long relaxing Italian treat of an afternoon (but we actually had to leave early as we had other plans) definitely would come back for some nice wine and pasta ??

    Amazing food and service! We had a chef’s daily special for a starter, as well as another appetiser and two mains off the normal menu - all of it was perfect. Great selection of wines and spirits, very attentive and friendly staff, highly recommend to those looking for an authentic Italian dining experience!
