Very Nice Restaurant wit a Local Feeling

This was the closest restaurant to our villa, so we had lunch or dinner here on three occasions... Very good food, good prices and the family running the place made you feel like you were a regular, from the first time you sit down. The hostess is terrific, always out in the front of the house... read more

During our week long stay in Positano, we had several dinners at this restaurant. Really good fresh local food, good service and great views, all at reasonable prices. The hostess Margeritha was always welcoming. One morning before an early coastal sightseeing trip she even brewed us fresh coffee even though the restaurant was not open for breakfast. We made sure... More

The service was very poor. We were a party of 6 and they completely forgot my meal. I understand mistakes happen however they never apologized, showed no attention to our table and forgot my wife's wine. Its hard to believe you get treated this way when you had plenty of options. To be fair, the food was good. They need... More

Ill Fornillo is a really cute restaurant on the hill. The service is wonderful, location is beautiful, and food in great. Our entire family of five enjoyed it (two adults and three children). The only disappointment was the dessert. They were just frozen packaged items.

The sea food was very good. I wouldn't suggest the meat platter. The location in the corner is special and the service is warm.

The restaurant was really nice and not that expensive even if it was in Positano. You had a lovely view because it's higher up and not right down at the beach.

We were a group of 20 attending a wedding and this was our farewell meal. We were seated at 3 different table arrangements which was fine and the food was good but with small portions and a long wait. Gluten free options were available which was nice. Quality of food was very good.

We went here on the recommendation from a hotel owner next to our apartment. The restaurant looks magical as you walk up, the trees are lit with fairy lights and the views out over the sea are amazing. As we sat down we were seem to very quickly for drinks and food but then that was it, it's like we... More

This is probably one of the best places you can dine at with an amazing view of the sea! This restaurant was quite charming with cinnamon and orange table decorations and lit trees. It seemed the restaurant was family run, which made it even more pleasant :) The 4 cheese ravioli is by far the BEST I've had in my... More

I was recommended this place for take out pizza and ordered the Fornillo - little tomatoes, anchovies, arugula and mozzarella. It took less than 5 minutes to prepare. The previous night I had a Napolise Pizza in Rome and it was far superior in favour and about the same price (10euro). I spotted a couple eating a pizza in the... More
