Ate at this restaurant for lunch just about everyday. A place where all the locals go. Food was fresh and delicious.

A totally charming and random restaurant in a fairly hidden cove….lunch is complete bedlam in the best italian sense of the word…noisy, shouting, laughing, busy waiters and an atmosphere to die for..

Another trip to Adolfo's and the food did not disappoint. The mozzarella on lemon leaves, the grilled anchovies, and mussels are addictive. It's a great, gritty experience on the beach that one shouldn't miss if visiting Positano .

We took the free boat shuttle to Da Adolfo - it was a bit of a wait and we got on the second boat - we had previously booked sunbeds and an umbrella on the beach but in retrospect it was unnecessary and not a great experience - too compact and beach on a slope - no room to move.... More

This was the second time I had been to Da Adolfo and it was every bit as good as I remembered, if not better! You must have a reservation to go. It may take persistent phone calling (they don't seem to answer emails) but it is worth the effort. The setting is amazing, a short boat ride from Positano (look... More

Spend a day at the tiny beach and habe lunch here and you will experience Positano at its best! Certain dishes you wont have anywhere in the world as perfekt as right here: Have Alici marinara, raw anschovis marinated with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, parsley and a little bit of chili; or have one of the signature dishes: "Zuppa...

I have never felt strongly enough to write a negative review on trip advisor, but I felt so disgusted with the treatment we received from beginning to end, that I would warn others to reconsider a trip to Da Adolfo. The absolute rudeness of the manager is so appalling that no matter how good the food is, u r left... More

We had heard about Da Adolfo prior to our trip to Positano and I had emailed the restaurant several times to book a lunch reservation. I never received an email back so decided to let my hotel concierge do the booking upon arrival; it turns out they never answer the phone! My hotel Said they try day after day for... More

I had read great things about Da Adolfo so we decided to try it out as it was around the bend from our hotel- Il San Pietro. You MUST have a reservation. We asked our concierge to make us a reservation the day of and we were told that their boat would pick us up at 2pm. If you are... More
