Restaurant Review

Located in the bustling Freehold Borough downtown section, the major business activity of this restaurant is their catering business for parties and private functions in the upstairs dining room, referred to as the Courtyard on Main banquet hall, that seats up to 175.

The Freehold area is over run with mediocre Italian restaurants, though this fine dining restaurant serves up well prepared dishes with attractive presentations that are a notch above many of the other downtown Freehold Italian restaurants.

The dining area with seating of up to 80 is attractive and done up in soft earth tones and attractive french doors that look out onto Main Street. The dining area is spacious, with tables spaced adequately apart. It's a good place for quiet conversation. In the warmer months there is dining on the backyard patio.

Partner and Executive Chef Anthony Pane and Head Chef Juan Cruz have teamed up to serve a menu with a variety of American, traditional Italian and some Asian influenced dishes.

The food at Positano has some bright spots. The serving of bread is warm and crusty. The main courses are well prepared and presented in colorful and creative arrangements. The Chilean Sea Bass is very good and is a popular selection. Also try the Polenta with Short Rib Sauce.

The desserts are sumptuous. Try the creamy Pana cotta... it's excellent.

They are Child friendly and offer a kids menu.
