History

Inspired by his culinary roots in Napoli, Ravello, and his Mamma Carmela’s kitchen, Enzo Rosano has created Positano Wine Bar, serving some of the finest wines and exceptional Italian delicacies in the Bay Area.

The Positano Wine Bar is casual and fun, with an Amalfi coast inspired design reminiscent of its sister restaurant, Ravello, in Danville. In the back are two beautiful and sophisticated private rooms.

From artisanal pastas to regional dishes, Mamma Carmela’s family recipes to inspired new creations, Positano Wine Bar’s dishes sing with Italian simplicity and love, bringing you an unforgettable experience in dining.

Enzo Rosano

enzo-250Enzo Rosano grew up in a town just outside of Naples, Italy. His fondest memories of his childhood are centered around his mother’s cooking and the spirited meals he shared with his eight siblings. Mama Carmela’s amazing cooking kept her children close to home throughout their childhood and young adulthood. Her culinary influence also played a role in Enzo’s decision to enroll in the Scuola Alberghieria Culinary and Hospitality program in Naples. Upon completion of his culinary training, Enzo landed a job as bartender at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Vong’s in London. Next was a stop as bar manager at The Berkeley Knightsbridge, a luxury property also in London. When he came to the Bay Area, his first stop was in Half Moon Bay where he helped open one of the town’s most popular restaurants, Mezza Luna, with family friend, Roberto Giovanni. Positano Wine Bar is the fourth successful venture for Enzo.
