I can see the appeal of this place as it is on a tiny secluded spot of beach 5 minutes boat ride from the piers at Positano. The magic ends there. First you need advance reservations. Second, with or without reservations you are rudely asked...More

Just ok. The food was fine, some dishes quite nice and others a bit bland, however there was nothing spectacular or lifechanging about it in any way (as some commenters seem to have experienced). Unfortunately the overall experience was let down by an air of...More

This is an amazing seafood restaurant that sits right on the beach. The only way to get to it is by boat. The food is as fresh as can be and is prepared perfectly. What makes this place even more enjoyable is the utter chaos,...More

Many were turned away at the boat... I'm sure this leads to many bad reviews for Da Adolfo. I can assure you that nobody at Da Adolfo is concerned about such experiences or reviews. In fact, the buzz around the exclusivity creates an undeniable hype...More

Our hotel called and booked beach chairs and a lunch reservation for us. Boat was easy to find on Spiaggia Grande and the ride was fast. I recommend taking the first 10a boat out and laying on the beach until lunchtime. The service was great...More
