Alessandro and his family and employees treated us like family and the food was excellent. I will go back any time I stay in Positano.

We walked a good distance up the hill to eat at this restaurant. It was really more of a pizza place. Service was very disappointing, they did not get our orders correct and had a very difficult time communicating. I would not go back!

Enroute Positano main town if you drive from Amalfi, this is a hidden gem for some great Italian food. We visited as a group of 5 in April'15 and each one of us absolutely adored the restaurant. Great food and great service. Cheers! MK

Just returned from a one week vacation on the Amalfi Coast and ate at IL Fornilla three times during my stay! The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The views of the water were breathtaking! The pizza, said to be one of the best in Positano, was great! The spaghetti and gnocchi was fresh and very tasty too. The kids... More
