We heard great things about this place, and decided to give it a try. Definitely lives up to the high ratings! The food was very fresh and flavorful. One of the best meals we had in Italy. Gets crowded.

Like many visitors to Positano we had heard great things about Da Adolfo when researching our trip. We made many fruitless calls to the restaurant prior to our holiday to try and secure a reservation but no-one ever picked up. This was frustrating and we...More
