We went to Da Adolfo for lunch the day after our wedding in Ravello - wow, we absolutely loved it! We took our family & friends that were over for our wedding & had a great feast! A highlight is catching the little boat over - you can only access it by boat so be sure to make a restaurant... More

Have been coming here for years. Staff welcome me and the hubby like olds friends. I've never seen a menu but always can rely on them to bring the best of what's fresh that day. Our skipper has never had an issue getting the launch to the jetty - even at peak times - so don't believe yours if he/she... More

Without a reservation you have no place at the table, to must call and answer you are lucky There is a boat that goes from Praiano starting 11 AM food is delicious, you must try to get there

A truly memorable experience because of the gobsmackingly beautiful boat ride, the unforgettable view, the deliciously fresh food, the relaxed vibe, and the friendly people. Do not miss this restaurant when in Positano!!

What a fun day! My Husband and I visited last August. From the boat ride to the restaurant, to the high energy servers, to the food and wine (with peaches!), we had a wonderful afternoon at Da Adolfo. Very inexpensive and laid back. Will visit again when we return to Positano!

Try to call and get a reservation. Keep calling until someone answers. Our hotel called for 2 days and finally got a hold of someone. Definitely worth it! Go earlier than your reservation and rent out beach chairs and relax. We got the whole fish and it was amazing.

Da Adolfo is my favorite restaurant in the world. I love the no-fuss, the great food and the atmosphere. We met another restaurant owner in Positano who helped us snag a reservation but no matter how you do it you have to go. If you can't get a reservation you can go and wait and I think later in the...

I probably had one of my best meals during my trip to the Amalfi Coast at Da Adolfo (even besides Michelin-starred Dinners and lunches). You have to make a reservation ahead since there are limited sun beds and tables, but you could go the more luxurious beach right next to it and then come to Da Adolfo for lunch. everything... More

Don't bother trying to email or phone - we tried unsuccessfully. Our hotel managed to make a reservation for the day. This was a memorable day and lots of fun, very casual dining affair, food was very good and the setting is fantastic. For us, Da Adolfo lived up to the hype. Great, simple food served in a rustic setting.... More
