We had just traveled by bus to Positano from Sorrento, got settled in our hotel, made the descent down what felt like a billion steps and were in desperate need for a refreshing lunch and a cold drink. We definitely found it at Da Ferdinando. I had a HUGE, fresh caprese salad. My husband had a panino on nice, crusty bread with fresh tomatoes and tuna. Both delicious! The lemon slushy hit the spot as well. The service was great - I asked where I could buy sun lotion nearby (I forgot mine in our room and in Positano, you can't simply run back up to your room). He didn't know, but later found us on the beach in front of the restaurant and gave me a whole bottle that he had tracked down for me. So nice! If you're looking for simple, fresh food with a beach view and good service, look no further!

The staff here are very welcoming and friendly.

We came here several times and food was always very good.

Get yourself some deck chairs, start up a tab and just relax. You won’t be disappointed.

We were considering cancelling half our Positano holiday and returning to Roma early after a spectacular month long holiday in Europe. We just loved the food, culture (and the prices) in Roma, Florence and Venice.. However after disappointment in taste and price at other restaurants in Positano, da Ferdinando delivered us real, raw and authentic Positano hospitality that did not make us feel like we were sitting in the middle of a tourist trap for the rich and famous. Loved it! Friendly and fun, great basic Italian food run by a friendly local family, dogs running around and standard prices for beach chairs with a running tab. Loved the pizza. Strong limoncello spritz to dull the pain of the 450 stair climb that awaits you if you're staying up the hill like us at Hotel Villa Gabrisa.
We will be return every day until we leave! Fabulous find thanks to a fellow Brisbane reviewer.
Grazie mille

This place has a great vibe. Service is really friendly and the view is spectacular. It is almost like a private island where a small route from the center leads into the line of restaurants. Worth the walk for this place. Recommend it!

Ordered pasta as recommended by one of the staff. It was not bad but it was not good either. It was not fresh. It was just reheated. Service is very friendly.

Say hello to their poodle Chika who loves to play fetch with guests.
