Italian Restaurant Open Lunch and Dinner every day all year
Hospitality and Value
Whatever happened to the Kennedy's Italian au pair and Italian chauffeur? Well they followed JFK to DC and settled here. The best cook and the best front man decided to apply their teamwork and dedication opening an Italian restaurant in a sleepy village called Bethesda Maryland, thirty seven years ago.
Positano Ristorante Italiano has been owned and operated by the Traettino family since 1977 in Bethesda, MD outside Washington, DC. Positano is a full-service Italian restaurant serving lunch and dinner seven days per week, each week, all year. We don't close in the afternoon. We also offer six separate private dining rooms for rehearsal dinner sites, wedding reception sites, bar mitzvah sites, bat mitzvah sites, holiday parties, reunions. The county parking garage is behind Positano, with entrances on Old Georgetown Rd and Woodmont Ave. The garage is FREE on Saturdays and Sundays.
