The Plaza Room is the largest venue, with its own street entrance, bar and dance floor. The Plaza Room is designed to accommodate one hundred eighty guests with room for dinner and dancing. The Plaza Room is perfect for hosting a wedding reception or high school reunion.
Positano Ristorante Italiano has been owned and operated by the Traettino family since 1977 in Bethesda,MD outside Washington,DC. Six separate private dining rooms are classy venues for rehearsal dinner sites, wedding reception sites, bar mitzvah sites, bat mitzvah sites, holiday parties. The six rooms together accommodate a total of 600 guests. Because of our thoughtful service, home-made Italian cuisine and attention to detail we have created a loyal following and have become renowned as a venue for private events.
We are not part of a hotel or restaurant chain, we do not have a microwave, we still write our guest checks in long hand, we still make our own sauces, bread, mozarella cheese, pastas and desserts.
We are straightforward and have no hidden fees. Your private party pays only for the food, the drink , the tax and the tip. We pay for the extra waiters, bartenders, cakes, linens, settings, the room. At the end of your special event you will receive the bill with no surprises. You will not need to obtain a second mortgage or a home equity line credit.
For pricing information please visit and review the event menu page of our web site. You get value for your money at Positano Restaurant.
For large parties we can arrange chartered transportation by luxury coach bus or minibus or sedan. Positano is three blocks from the Bethesda Metro Station on the Red Line.
Positano accepts reservations up to two years in advance. Positano accepts credit cards, checks and U.S. dollar bills.

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!
