Taste is utmost important to determine whether the food is worth the trip. There are several dishes we would strongly recommend at Positano Risto.

1. Fettucine Carbonara – The creamy texture is simply divine. Their beef bacon & smoked beef pastrami were great substitute.

2. Squid Ink Seafood Spaghetti – It is tricky to find good squid ink pasta in KL. The fresh and quality seafood and their lip smacking secret homemade squid ink sauce is to die for.

3. Godfather – We simply love the Ferrero Rocher Milkshake. It is awesomely thick and dense in flavour, purely sinful yet satisfying. You will not regret ordering if you are a fan of hazelnut. Our second choice would be the Oreo Milkshake.

4. Positano Signature Ice Cream Brioche – Their freshly baked Brioche is the key difference why it is so good.

5. Seafood Aglio Olio Linguini – As simple as it seems, it is very hard to cook tasty aglio olio. Postiano Risto just did the job well. The al dante pasta is soaked in garlic infused olive oil paried nicely with the fresh seafood. The hint of spiceciness from the chili hits the right spot.
