The location of this beach bar could not be any better. Steps away from the beach, beautiful atmosphere, cool shades and fresh menu. we came to enjoy and relax every day during our week in Positano. Our servers were always hospitable and extremely nice.

We had a memorable day here and will be back! I would recommend this beach (Fornillo beach) to Positano's main beach. You can walk around to the main beach from here via a walking track (or vice versa). The beach beds are attached to this bar and they make it so easy for you. You simply start a tab at... More

This beach is a gem and da ferdinando is well worth stopping off at. The sandwiches are great - made so by the great produce and bread used. It's relatively inexpensive in comparison to many places around. If highly recommending popping round the bay for a relax by the sea, some paddle boarding and lunch here.

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. Following the path lead us to a quiet beach that had lots of chairs and Da Ferdinando! We had a few drinks and a great time after... More

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 ;)
