“All round amazing!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Il fornillo is an absolute must when in Positano! The staff are beautiful and the food, value and atmosphere all fantastic. I had the mixed seafood pasta then came back for it again a second time! I would eat here for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could! Highly recommend it.

Reviewed April 3, 2013

We thoroughly reccomend this cute Positano restaurant.
We kept going back to try more from the menu...The whitebait starter is a must, the risotto alla pescatore delicious and the pizza is excellent.- not to mention the desserts..
The staff were pleasant and friendly, the lighting just right and the atmosphere relaxed.With the
fabulous view and a nice bottle of falanghina or falerno, perfect !

“Loving Positano”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Il Fornillo was our favorite restaurant. We went there the first night we were in Positano and ended up going back. In fact we ate there 5 of the 7 nights we were there. The food was wonderful, the staff were nice and the atmosphere was wonderful with a breathtaking view. I recommend it!

“Using the best of Positano”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

While visiting in the off-peak season, many hotels and restaurants were closed. We were left with only 4 to choose from in the whole Positano. Needless to say, Il Fornillo was by far the best in value, taste and appreciation for the fresh seafood. The seafood risotto as well as lemon risotto was cooked perfectly, as were the mussels in soup with croutons. For a quiet romantic dinner, this place sets the mood with pretty fairy lights mimicking nightfall in Positano as you gaze upon the hillside. Thumbs up 3 nights in a row!

“Fair price, good food”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Nothing extravagant, but a very good choice. Not like we had a choice as to where we were going our first night being that we arrived late and it was low-season. Il Fornillo took care of us. A good meal for what we paid. But nothing over-the-top (service, food, or otherwise).
