I would definitely recommend Positano for your private event. My group had a great time at the restaurant. They provided excellent service and our lead server was GREAT! I honestly (and I feel bad about it) cannot remember her name but she was fantastic. My group was about 40 and she handled us well!
The only thing I was a little disappointed about was the room itself. My room was only semi-private and I thought it would be completely private. We were trying to play a video and had a prom group breathing down our necks and walking through the video as it was playing. It was not their fault at all (they had to walk through our group to get to their table and I know the restaurant was super crowded). So I only say this to say if you want a private room make sure you have a private room. But again this did not take away too much from my overall experience!
