Great view & food

Worth a visit for the view alone, good was good, we had dinner one night and ordered takeaway pizza another evening. In particular we would recommend their fish dishes and pizzas.

We went here as it was the nearest restaurant to our hotel after a really big storm had passed over. We arrived and were promptly seated inside glad we went when we did as it got really busy. The staff were attentive and the food was tasty. We would dine here again and make a reservation so we can sit... More

We visited in July 2015 and were unfortunately disappointed. The food was nice (although had better in Positano) but the service was very very slow and the worst we had received in Positano.

Decided to go here after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and loved the fact that we were collected at the marina from Spiaggia Grande and ferried over to Il Fornillo. Food was very reasonably priced and great quality. The bonus for me were the ice cold beers. Could have stayed here all day!!! Plus the food was very good too!

Great view and great food! The seafood was amazing and the tiramisu delicious. You can sit inside or outside but we recommend outside for the stunning views. It was a long, lovely, leisurely meal.

We ate here three different occasions due to the fact that they were able to provide gluten-free pizza and pasta dishes for my wife. The staff were friendly and discrete rather than in your face like some of the other restaurants. The food was largely excellent although when we both ordered pasta one night, the 5 ravioli parcels I had... More

My wife and two young daughters eat gluten free and Il Fornillo had the best pizza on our two-week trip to Italy. Service was great. We sat outdoors and watched cars and people go by in a beautiful, relaxed setting. We'll go back next time we are in Positano for sure.

Enjoyed our dinner on both occasions, friendly staff and saw Queen Maria too. Close to Hotels and local musical entertainment in the form of a roaming jazz band. Loved my pasta and seafood.
