We ate here the last night of our trip to Positano. Food was very good, but we were seated at the table the was on the roadway and the traffic came awfully close to our table. Once you see the roads in Positano you'll understand. Plus it put our table at a definitive slant due to the geography. The ones... More

This one one of many restaurants on the sides of the narrow Amalfi coast drive near Positano. It's actually near your first entry into Positano coming from Naples. Most helpful was the inexpensive parking garage that was spaciously useful and nearly next door. My first contact with a melon called "gialletto" was here -- never seen one of these and... More

We were a party of 5 and they put us in the open doorway facing the sea. The view was amazing. Food was great, prices were comparable to others in the area. We enjoyed the local wine that was suggested, and had a visit from a cute cat that was hanging around the area. Great service, and they have take... More

We ordered the mussels in lemon and pepper for entree, and were very happy with our choice. For mains, we had a fillet steak and grilled calamari - the steak was cooked perfectly,... More

My wife and I visited Il Fornillo for dinner on our first night as it was close and the view was great. The food was good and we could not fault the service. Anyway there is this 3 piece band which go between the 3 or so neighboring restaurants and play a few songs and after that the usual shake... More

The food at this restaurant is great and very reasonably priced. We had the spaghetti with clams and the stuffed squid which were both unbelievable. They also make a very good Aperol spritz! The only negative was that the service was a little slow and our meals took a while to prepare, but with views like they have you don't... More

We went for a late dinner, approx. 10pm, and were the only ones outside on the patio part of the restaurant. We had a fabulous server (I wish I could remember his name!!) and the food (pizza, pasta Bolognese, caprese) was exquisite. They checked on us a couple of times, but otherwise allowed us to peacefully enjoy our meal and... More
