All of us enjoyed our meals (2) at this restaurant. The atmosphere is romantic. They also do take-out food.

Looks beautiful at night. Lovely views of all the night lights. Food was very nice and not too pricey. Staff were very welcoming and friendly, including the pizza maker.

It was our Birthday date and "Il Fornillo" did us proud. It's a long steep road uphill climb from the centre but well worth it. In winter the Amalfi coast can be cold and wet but the reception here was warm and welcoming. The staff spoke good english and their advice on the menu was spot on. We had fish... More

We arrived late in the evening in Positano but wanted a nice dinner to begin our visit to the village. Since it was the end of season, many restaurants were closed but Il Fornillo, just up the hill from our hotel, was open and recommended for a quick, late meal. All we can say is “don’t bother going!” First, the... More

Il Fornillo is on the main street (right side) leading to and from the beach. It offers fresh tasty pizzas, made to order sandwiches on their freshly baked breads and salads plus an incredible bakery with extraordinary desserts. Prices are reasonable for Positano standards and it's all tasty. The dining area is a pleasant deck with both shade and sun... More

We so enjoyed our last night at Il Fornillo! I chose it for the lovely location, overlooking the sea and walking distance to our hotel. We enjoy dining outdoors so I made our reservation for an outside table the night before. When we arrived we had lovely greeting and table on the terrace. Our meals were great, as was the... More

November is always pretty quiet in Positano and this restaurant is quite far away from the beach hubbub but is still worth a visit as the food is better than the beach fare this time of the year. The food is fresh and good sized portions with friendly service. We stuck with pasta and it was nice and well presented.

My wife and I ate dinner at Il Fornillo during our stay in Positano. The restaurant was a short walk from our hotel. Food and service were good, but nothing out of the ordinary.
