124 High Street, Tunsgate, Guildford, GU1 3HQ

Nestled just off Guildford’s historic High Street, Positano is an intimate gastronomic gem, offering diners simple Italian food at its very best. Whether you’re seeking drinks al fresco, a romantic meal in the stunning beamed restaurant, which dates back to 1631, or a function in the panelled dining room, Positano excels. A glance over the impressive menu indicates that this is no ordinary Italian restaurant, but a true Epicurean experience. Franco and his team are passionate about good food, and it shows in the fantastic selection of authentic dishes available on the set menu and specials.

For starters we opted for the mouth-watering gamberoni Positano, a fantastic array of king prawns with white wine, garlic, parsley and fresh rocket, and also involtino di melanzana – mozzarella and Parma ham wrapped in aubergine with balsamic reduction and rocket salad. For our main course we enjoyed the truly delectable orata alla Sorrentina, fresh sea bream with sautéed spinach, potato, calamari and white wine, sundried tomato and olive sauce, and the trofiette alla norma, comprising handmade twisted pasta with swordfish in white wine and aubergine sauce.

When it comes to puddings, Positano doesn’t disappoint, and I can highly recommend the coppa pistachio e crema. Their signature tiramisu – a safely guarded top-secret recipe that takes three hours to prepare – is sublime. With an excellent selection of wine from across Italy, fantastic food and great service, Positano is not to be missed – buon appetito.
