    I discovered Positano early this year, and we had my daughter's Sweet Sixteen, my 40th birthday party, and a large family dinner there.
    Jimmy and his team are the most accommodating group I have ever met. No matter what I asked (and I ask for a lot!), they provided everything with aplomb and a smile!
    We are trying to find another excuse to have a large gathering at Positano! It cannot be beat!
