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.

    Having had an excellent pre-theatre lunch at Positano a few months ago, we were very keen to try a pre-theatre dinner. Got the chance last weekend and our excitement & anticipation was rewarded. I had a steak dish which was cooked to perfection. My wife's lamb dish exceeded her expectations. The service at Positano is truly top rate from the warm and friendly greeting all the way through to our departure. An all-Italian waiting staff is excellent too. Our waiter was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the courses and specials. I highly recommend Positano for pre-theatre (lunch and dinner) as well as the more romantic meals. We shall definitely return.

    Delicious fresh food but serving staff very variable. Very good & professional young man however the young lady who took our drinks order, forgot about the drinks then when prompted forgot she had taken the order and brought us the wine list again. I reiterated the order which I had already placed and she still managed to bring the wrong wine in one of the glasses which another waitress had to change. The same original waitress then also brought our desserts but left us without cutlery with to eat them.
    I noticed that the original drink incorrectly served was on the bill but that the restaurant had then added an extra 55p to increase the cost to the correct amount. Was not accompanied by any apology just ensured they got the charge right!
    The next day was speaking to others who happened to have dined there the same evening and knew the waitress we were talking about as she had also got their order wrong!
    The restaurant was very busy and did feel that I was on a production line where the attention to detail was a little lacking!
