Da Adolfo

Once I knew we were going to Positano, I was set on taking a trip to Da Adolfo. It's a family owned restaurant situated on a little beach not far from Positano. You have to make a reservation as it books up crazy fast, and then take a little boat from the pier to the beach.

Now, this isn't a white sand beautiful beach that most people dream of, but a rocky little cove  with just enough space for a restaurant and small sunbathing area. People don't come here for the beach though, they come for the food. 

Once you hop off the boat you walk up to the patio, find your table, and a waiter will come say hellp and list off the menu for you, literally. They don't have menus except for a chalk board hidden at the front that you can barely make out. So, you listen, and hope that whatever you just ordered is good, which I guarantee it is. This place isn't a famous local spot for no reason.

There is nothing fancy about it, its freshly cooked sea food fit for anyone in clothes or a bathing suit. You are surrounded by people from all over the world, chattering away in different languages and lounging for hours while eating their food. I would suggest going just for the experience of it, it's a restaurant like nothing i've ever been to.

The food, as expected, was great. We shared a cheese dish (I have no clue what it was called, it was literally just melted mozzarella) and mussels, then I went on to have calamari spaghetti  and Chris had barbeque fish. 

After realizing how stuffed we were, we headed back onto the beach, or shall I say rocks, and did some sun bathing and swimming. 

The boats run every half hour from Positano to the beach until 1 pm, then take a break for lunch until 4 where they start up again. You can hop on one whenever you choose to go home.
