This is going to be more of a photo diary mixed with where to eat in Positano. We spent most of our time at our airbnb and Laurito beach, a smaller, more secluded beach. We spent a few hours in the central area of Positano and visited the shops.

Where to Eat

La Taverna del Leone

This is the restaurant that our airbnb host arranged for us to eat at. It was a quick 2 minute drive from our place but the roads in this area are a little dangerous to walk on. We started off our meals with cute pita hearts filled with chopped tomatoes. I wanted to get some seafood while in Positano so I asked if they had some form of shrimp scampi. They didn't have anything with garlic sauce so I tried out a tomato based sauce. It was a bit weird at first but I enjoyed it. After dinner my friends and I decided to share a chocolate mousse cake, it was SO GOOD.

Grocery Store - Tutto x Tutti

We were staying in a pretty remote location so going out for breakfast every day would have been a hassle. So on our first morning we went to the grocery store to get some breakfast staples - eggs, sausage, toast, apples and orange juice! We also picked up some bread and nutella + jam to make a lunch for the beach. We also got some hamburger meat so we could cook dinner that evening.

Da Adolfo

This is the restaurant that was on our beach. Funnily enough my aunt recommended this restaurant from me and said we'd have to take a boat from Positano to get there. Lucky for us we just had to walk down to our beach to go. I had pasta with garlic and olive oil and it was amazing! Rather than having a decadent dessert I opted for fresh strawberries. A nice change from all the chocolate and gelato I had been eating.

The day we ate there we decided to go to Postiano in the afternoon. This meant waiting until about 3:30 when their boats would start coming to bring diners back to Positano. It was a strange process. We had to walk on a freestanding dock and wait for a small boat to come. They didn't anchor it, they just came in with the waves and people got on the boat as fast as they could. We saw quite a few wipeouts the day before so I was nervous. Luckily I hopped on the boat with no problems! Then it was a quick 5 minute boat ride to Positano.

Ristorante La Pergola

We had dinner before leaving the center of Positano on our last evening. I wasn't feeling ambitious (or rich) enough to try out their weirder, more expensive seafood items so I went with pepperoni pizza instead. I finished off my meal with a lemon granita which brought me back to days of eating Dell's frozen lemonade at the beach in Rhode Island. Super fresh and tart, not something I usually like but for some reason I just love lemon slushies!

  2. The boat situation does sound a little terrifying! And all your food looks so good, why is food always the most important part of vacation?

  3. Wow that sunset at the end!

    Look at your breakfast view too - I can see why you wouldn't want to try go out anywhere when you could relax and enjoy that view. So lovely! :)

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! :)
