Da Adolfo, a must-go-to beach restaurant in Positano

Tucked away in the lovely Laurito beach, just a short 5-minute boat ride away from Positano‘s Spiaggia Grande is a delicious, totally informal restaurant that you can’t miss on your Amalfi Coast trip: Da Adolfo!

If you’re like me, food is a big part of having the perfect trip. So even if I’m sunbathing and dipping in the crystalline waters of the Amalfi Coast, my biological clock knows when it’s time for a delicious lunch! So why not just pair the fantastic beach with the food, two for one?! Well, that’s what you will be getting at Da Adolfo, a small restaurant that serves mind-blowing Amalfi Coast cuisine.

Da Adolfo beach restaurant in PositanoDa Adolfo is a tiny restaurant located in the small beach of Laurito. This beach can be reached by taking a small wooden boat that takes you back and forth from the beach to Spiaggia Grande in Positano (the boat is the one with the red fish-shaped sign with Da Adolfo written on it). As the boat navigates the waters, the views of Positano and the Amalfi Coast are splendid. Once you arrive, if you’re just staying for lunch go directly to the small wooden restaurant, but if you’re staying for the beach too (it’s a great beach with crystal clear waters and not a lot of people), go ask for your sun bed (make sure to have called to reserve the sun bed).

Da Adolfo is a very small restaurant, very informal, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a delicious lunch on a sunny day. The service is very friendly and the menu is yummy! All the dishes change on a daily basis and are written on a big black chalk board, so of course, as you’d expect, all the ingredients are super fresh and of course, exquisite!

An old-time favourite is the mussel soup along with the mouthwatering grilled mozzarella on lemon leafs, the delicious spaghetti totani e zucchini (squids and zucchini) and the grilled catch of the day. But when you get there the black chalk board will speak for itself! And of course, a pitcher with local wine and peaches cannot be missing at the table! Don’t forget to make a reservation in advance.
