We loved this place but it has gotten overrun by rudeness. They won't answer the phone to give you a reservation even weeks in advance and then when you try to get on the boat to go from Positano dock, everyone is rude that is...More

Fun experience. Make Rez. Take free shuttle from Positano. Fab food. Get mozzarella on lemon leaf. Lounge chairs a bit ratty but part of fun experience. Water so clear. Wear water shoes.

Our accommodation was actually about 10 min flight of stairs above Da Adolfo, so we arrived by foot. We had a table reservation but forgot to book sun beds, so we had to fork out a pretty 20 euros per sun bed to the restaurant...More

The experience starts when you look out for the 'red fish' boats by Positano beach. Then, when one arrives, you are asked if you have a reservation and if yes you hop into the boat. During our boat trip we stopped off twice to a...More

We had a terrific time at this place. They sent a boat to our hotel to pick us up for the 10 minute ride to their restaurant which is right on the beach. The food is outstanding and the place quite unpretentious. The food is...More

We loved this little place, reached by boat only. The highlight of our Positano visit, thanks to Frank Carpegna, our new best friend! Marco, you were great too! The fresh fish was amazing as was the wine with peaches. We loved the craziness and the...More

Lunch took all day and it was great! Take the little boat with the red fish sign around to the very next beach (it's the only way to access this restaurant). Hire a beach chair for 8 or 10 Euro, kick back and have a...More

What a fun way to spend a day! Getting in or booking a table is the tricky part. As this is a seasonal restaurant ( I believe they open early to mid May ) ringing them is not all that easy. We asked our hotel...More

I had our Airbnb host call on our behalf - she did mention that they don't pick up their phone!
What are the hours they are open? Are they open everyday? I did not see that on their web page. Thanks everyone for your reviews, they really help!

Always book or you will not even get on the boat with the little red fish!
Success in booking? Trying to call and book this restaurant and no-one answers! Is it better to get hotel to do it?
