Great food in a beach bar!

Directions: On Fornillo beach, just to the north of the town of Positano.

There are a number of beach shack cafe/bar type places serving drinks and food on Fornillo beach, which is just to the north of Positano and accessible by a walkway along the sea. This beach is way more low key than Positano. We made a random choice and picked Pupetto, lucky for us.

We just stopped for a glass of wine but ended up staying for lunch. There is a large staff of barefooted guys who are at your table as soon as you even glance in their direction. I also liked the man who appeared to be the owner or manager - a sort of salty dog type I grew up around in my youth on the northern California coast.

Colleen and I split a sandwich of grilled eggplant and fresh mozzarella. Only in Italy could a 5 euro sandwich at a beach shack be SO AWESOME. There were thin slices of garlic to give it a little punch and some really nice olive oil drizzled all over it. Plus it probably had about a pound of fresh mozzarella on it. We also had some little fried thingies that were just OK.

At the next table one diner got a fresh fruit plate (also 5 euros) that had grapes, watermelon, a whole pear, and a whole peach. It looked wonderful and if you ever need a fresh fruit fix in Positano, go to Pupettos for one of these plates.

The total for a half litre of wine (I think it was half, but maybe we got two? Can't remember), sandwich, fried thingies, and water was 14.50 euros. If you want to escape the crowds (and the prices) of Positano, make the short trek to Fornillo beach and Pupetto cafe.
