Nice place, nice people, nice food. Good service with a smile, view is amazing, and the food doesn't disappoint. Fresh salad, the best Mozzarella (the aged one), and fresh seafood.

Cool location right on beach however the sandwiches were just ok. And we had to hail the server down because they weren't really paying attention to us, which I know is par for the course in Italy but it was an even longer wait here

We explored the main area of Positano which seemed to get busier and more crowded by the second. We stumbled upon a path and walked up and around for excellent views of Positano.

only there briefly one afternoon, but even in a short time we definitely experienced the great service! Ferdinando even has a boat that he takes people back and forth from the main beach over to this beach. We met Chica (I think that is her name), the dog who presumably owns the place ;)

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.

Thank Contessa061
