If you haven’t yet picked up the book My Amalfi Coast by Amanda Tabberer (the daughter of a well know Australian television personality Maggie Tabberer) and you are toying with the idea of visiting the Amalfi coast – a word of advice – go straight to the bookshop to buy it, or at least have a flick through. This colourful coffee table book is a treasure trove of information on the Amalfi coast with the most brilliant photographs which showcase the attraction of this most stunning area. The book really should be a bible for anyone wanting to visit this splendid part of Italy and will encourage visitors to step out to the other lesser known villages along the coast instead of sticking to the better known towns, and tourist haunts, such as Amalfi, Sorrento and Positano.
Always on the look out for some new eating experiences, I flicked through the book and found Da Adolfo, and of course also listened to recommendations from others who had stayed in Positano and visited Da Adolfo more than once (what a great recommendation!). It seems as though Amanda had a bit of a vested interest in recommending this Positano institution – she was married to Sergio the son of the original owner and lived in Positano for 18 years, which explains her intense knowledge of the area – but her recommendation was spot on!
