Great time with my hubby at this beautiful bar overlooking the coast. Very crowded though make sure to get there a bit on the earlier side if you want to be able to talk to the person you are with since it gets really loud.More

No, not open in March. They open in May. That's when the season is slowly starting in Positano. Enjoy your trip to Po

Another nice option if Franco's Bar is full? (3 Replies)
Hi - My husband and I will be in Positano in mid July. We're planning to just walk to Franco's Bar around 6/7pm, as they don't accept reservations. But if there's a long wait, then could you please suggest an alternative bar/restaurant serving drinks that has a beautiful view and would be a short walk from Franco's? We will only have about an hour to ourselves, before joining the rest of our group for dinner, and want it to be memorable. Thank you!

Just walk down the road a little further and you will find Bruno's and Li Galli both great with excellent views.

Franco's Bar..reservations? (6 Replies)
Looking to have some pre-dinner drinks at Franco's at about 8:30pm...close to sunset as well in June i believe. Do we need to make reservations for 'front row seats' :) ? Do they take reservations or is it FCFS?
May 10, 2018|
Response frommaudsters|
I don’t think reservations are possible.. you need to get there at opening time to bag one of the tables at the edge. And it fills up very quickly. Bear in mind, that unless things have changed for this summer season, there is no roof or canopy of any kind - so they are reliant on dry weather.
