The Amalfi Coast, Capri, and Naples Restaurants

Da Adolfo

Fodor's Review

On a little beach where pirates used to build and launch boats, this laid-back trattoria has long been a favorite Positano landmark. The pirates are long gone, but their descendants now operate the free ferry to and from Positano (every half-hour in the morning)—look for the boat with the red fish on the mast named for the restaurant—or make the steep descent from the main coastal road at Laurito. Sit under a straw canopy on the wooden terrace to enjoy totani con

patate (squid and potatoes with garlic and oil); then sip white wine with peaches until sundown. Some diners even swim over, so bathing suits are fine. Da Adolfo gets busy, so ask your hotel to book a table for you: personal reservations are often not honored.

Da Adolfo Review

haven't been to the "Red Fish" restaurant in about 10 years, however our experience was one of a very relaxed,delightful afternoon by the sea eating very fresh fish, pasta and drinking wine. We plan on visiting again in August 2010

oooooh the mussels!

This was one of our most memorable meals on the entire Amalfi was some of the best food and with a boat ride and sun chairs as part of the day..very "non touristy". The mussels were the BEST we had..they have their own mussel bed. Mostly "in the know" Italians..very few tourists which was nice. Service was not polished..but hey you're on the beach. Loved Da Adolfo!!

We didn't even stay for lunch

Staff seemed disinterested in serving us so we left. The boat ride to and fro was very nice, but I wou;dn't come back.
