The best Caprese salad (get the buffalo mozzarella) and the nicest staff. On the quiet side of Positano. Lovely swimming. Very enjoyable afternoons spent here.

Located right on the Fornillo beach of Positano, it was great pit stop for a drink & coffees after climbing up & down the steps of Positano. The café lattes were great, as was the service. The Aussie flags and the green & gold umbrellas on the beach were a nice touch & gave us a gentle reminder of home.

A family-run beach bar on the less crowded beach of Fornillo. Chair/umbrella rentals are available at reasonable prices. The deck restaurant serves daily specials plus a regular menu of salads, pizza and sandwiches - all made fresh everyday. The staff are all family and service is prompt and friendly.

This is one of the best spots on Fornillo beach and we came here several times during our seven day stay in Positano. Their lemon granita with vodka was so refreshing and the staff are so friendly and a lot of fun. I also love how it's decorated! Perfect beach vibe.

Relaxed bar, good prices for the beach beds, AMAZING Caprese salad. The only complaint was the plastic cup for my Aperol Spritz -- a bit of a backpacker let down!

If you can't relax here, you just may need serious/professional help. All of the staff - they all seem to be related somehow - are really great and they genuinely seem to want you to just sit back and enjoy life. What could be better?

Fascistico! Another amazing experience in Positano. We spent 13 days going to Da Ferdinando where were were treated like Family. Marco, Guido, Ferdinando and Paulo are gracious hosts. China the house dog is a huge hit.The food is fantastic and beyond what I would expect from the beach. The mixed drinks are excellent. The Positano negroni, tricky tricky, and may... More
