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

There was live music... 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

Il Fornillo offers tables with a very good view of the ocean from about halfway up the hill on the north end of Positano. The staff are very friendly and service is prompt. We stopped for lunch and had an excellent meal. I had the grilled octopus appetizer and I have to say it was the best I have had... More

We stopped here on a whim on the last night in Positano. The staff was so nice, and the food extremely fresh. Beautiful atmosphere as well. Had a grilled sliced octopus appetizer that was to die for!!!! So unbelievably different and good :) All of our friends enjoyed their meals as well. Pasta homemade and light.

The best councidense of my last year:-). The food here is for educated pallets. Ftom small starters to pizzas everything was really refined. Very simple and very rich in taste. I can only congradulate them and come back again. The friendly staff is a real bonus.

The food was delicious and the service was good. People were very friendly and found a beautiful table at the front.The position overlooking the water was fabulous. It is worth booking. It was reasonably priced.

Great lunch with a view. Easy (and close as we were staying up the hill in Positano) and then we ordered a takeaway on a separate day when staying in and enjoying the view with a glass (or 2!) of wine was the order of the day. Staff was great and pizza was very good.
