Place Looks Closed For Business.......... – Stopped the other night and everything was dark with chairs on tables, etc. Heard from one of the "regulars" that the owner emailed the staff and said the place would not re-open. Sad..........
Great Pizza – I have read some of the reviews here and I guess they had some bad experiences, but I have been coming to Positano's for 11 years and have always loved their pizza. I am from New Jersey and really miss NY style pizza, and I have found that Positano's is the best in this area. Their lunch buffet is amazing for the price. As far as dinner goes, I always order the eggplant parm, and am never disappointed.
Pasitano's on Colonial in Ocoee – I?ve gone to Pasitanos for at least a decade and my family and I have watched the service, food quality, management and cleanliness of this place hit rock bottom! We went the other night for my mother?s birthday and it was a disaster squared! By the end of the dinner we had multiple wrong orders brought to the table, crying servers and a table large enough for 11 people completely covered in plates, bottles and glasses that should have been removed by a busser or a server long before we left! I wish I could post video or photos to this review because I have both to support this claim. Also the manager or Owner? That was hiding in the kitchen and yelling at the servers while refusing to come talk to us about the problems made the situation 1000 time worse by not just coming out and apologizing for the chaos. I won?t say his name but it started with a B and ended with ?ernie?.
Waste of Time and Money – Have been going to Positanos for pizza and pasta. Would give it a 4 star. Went for Veal dishes and could not believe the HIGH price and SMALL portions. Two small pieces of veal, 1/8 inch thick and 3 inch diameter no pasta (only potatoes -mashed and mixed vegetables. Soup or saled 19.98 what a rip off. Horrible experience and we're never going back again.
beware of their coupons – We took the coupon in that said buy one get one free meal. We got the half portion of dinner instead of the full portion. No where on the coupon mentions this as an exclusion. The waitress refused the accept the coupon and it was only for full order. Not only that, she asked us if we wanted a menu. Hell yeah, I'm in a restaurant. I had to get my own utensils and napkins. Also, when we got our meals, they forgot to add the chicken. Horrible experience and we're never going back again.
Rude over the phone, pizza not as good as it used to be – I called for pizza delivery and the woman on the phone was very rude and snapped "it'll be there in 45 min" & slammed the phone down on me as I was saying "ok. thank you". When the pizza came it sucked. Positano used to have NY style pizza: thin crust, pecorino cheese as well as mozzarella, tasty, crispy, perfect pizza. The pie they delivered tonight (a med for $17!) could have come from CiCi's (a local crappy pizza place with the worst and cheapest pizza in town)!
Pizza hut is better than this crap and cheaper too! I used to recommend this place as the only place to get real Italian pizza in town, now I'm going to be telling everyone else I know to avoid it at all costs. Why pay more for lousy pizza and to be treated like dirt?
Newly Remodeled Dining Room – My husband and I have been going to Positanos restaurant for over 10 years every Saturday or Sunday evening. We love the formal dining room changes and wonderful staff that greet us at the door. Even though mgmt and ownership have changed, the chef has not, so we enjoy the fantastic nightly specials he prepares for us and the extensive wine list. We will keep coming back.
Bad treatment of customer – To add to the above review. Francos Pizza also in Ocoee makes great pizza and there management are very very nice. That's where I will be ordering from now on. and they are not as pricey :)
Poor treatment of customer – I have faithfully ordered pizza from the Ocoee west location. Tonight I placed an order and was told something other than what I have always been told. The woman who picked up the phone was extremely rude refused to put the manager on the phone (apparently related) and hung up the phone on me. I order from there almost everyweek and sometimes twice a week. New management very rude and didn't seem to care how much money they just lost with losing us as customers. To think how often I have refeered them out. Never again. Poor customer service
Good food...wrong music – Not that the band was bad (they weren't) but to have the loud island band at a beautiful place of class and style as this, kind of ruined what would have been a pleasant evening. I will return, however, but will call ahead to make sure there is no live band playing that night. A soft jazz trio would have been nice or single guitar or piano player....what were they thinking!?!?
