A bit of the Mediterranean coast in Old City
Surrounded by a serene backdrop reminiscent of the Amalfi Coast, Positano Coast in Old City offers inspired Mediterranean cuisine and seafood.
With a 360-degree view of Historic Philadelphia, the restaurant’s lounge and terrace are wonderful spots for casual cocktails and dining under the stars.
Serving contemporary Italian cuisine in small portions designed for sharing, Positano Coast offers seafood, “crudo” (the Italian version of sashimi) and creative variations on many classic Italian dishes.
Some delicious options to try are the seafood risotto, zucchini crabcake, grilled octopus, roasted rack of lamb and the beef tenderloin.
From Positano Coast’s cobalt blue floor to the spectacular life-sized postcards covering the walls, the restaurant’s décor evokes an Italian seaside holiday. Beautiful views and flowing white linen curtains accent the relaxing and fresh dining room.
In the warmer months, Positano Coast offers elegant alfresco dining. Two patios and a terrace allow you to enjoy their fine cuisine with 360-degree views of historic Old City from an elegant second-floor vantage point.
Positano Coast offers a great list of creative cocktails, perfect for sampling during their Happy Hour at the bar only (Monday through Friday, 4-7 pm; Sunday, 12:30-6 pm).
And in addition to their full bar menu, Positano offers a BYOB option on Sunday and Monday nights.
