Recommended by our hotel reception. The dessert Ricotta Cheese Pere is awesome!

Pizza was good as recommended by other reviewers.

Personally, i like the seafood risotto more. It's tasteful and just nice.

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.

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 !

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!

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!
