Situated in the tiny cove of Laurito Positano, which is only accessible by boat, a day at Da Adolfo is a dream. Sitting in the rustic taverna, feet in the sand, salty from swims in the mediterranean, enjoying incredible Italian food and wine, you'll be...More

A great place for a leisurely lunch. We hadn’t booked so we weren’t sure if we could catch the boat around from the wharf. When the boat dropped some diners off they took us around to the restaurant. A lovely experience. We don’t usually enjoy...More

We stayed at the Casa Angelina hotel and went for a day visit to Positano. We had heard about Da Adolfo restaurant that was only accessible by boat and located between our hotel and Positano. We boarded a boat taxi and arrived at the beach...More

We went here on recommendation of a friend; and were surprised when we turned up (by boat) that it’s a very casual place, and looks like a fish and chip shop from the outside! We rung and booked in advance but there were other tables...More

After 10 days in Italy we hit maybe one of the most over rated restaurants in Europe. We arrived by boat to be disparaged the second we stepped into the restaurant. First, it was a big crisis to seat us. They couldn’t seem to seat...More

Menu very plain. Food overly salty. Best part was boat ride. We told the server the pasta was laced in salt but he didn’t care. Don’t waste your time or your money. It’s the most over rated place we’ve ever been.

You could try and drop them an e-mail through their website and see if you get a response (you can't reserve by e-mail, but maybe a general enquiry they might try), otherwise you have to call them anyway to book a table, so... More
