Really pretty setting and great service but the meal was very average. I had the sea bream and although it was boned at the table there were still way too many bones in the fish. The fish and potatoes were swimming in sauce. It probably would have been better to have the sauce served on the side.

Recommended by our tour guide, we were not disappointed. We had the lobster for two. It was very fresh, simply prepared and served with potatoes and vegetables. Lovely home cooked meal. Panacotta however seemed floury, bit disappointing. Would return though

My husband and I stayed 3 nights on our honeymoon, this was our favourite restaurant. Every dish was delicious, and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. My husband had the ravioli and it was better than a 5 star restaurant we ate at the night before. If you can get an outside table, the view is incredible and one... More

We went for dinner on the recommendation of our hotel (which is 200 meters from the place). "Best pizza in Positano" was the recommendation. Our expectations were not met. We had prosciutto and melon that was not ripe, followed by an average pizza for Italian standards.

I just climb a huge hill because I read this place was gluten free, unfortunately it wasn't, apparently they don't serve gluten free option when they are very busy. The waitress was extremely rude, she even started cursing in Italian, talking to herself, that it was the same sh***t over and over again, that she didn't have to put with... More

We visited Il Fornillo at a suggestion of a friend, and ended up going back every night. The food is delicious, amazing seafood, vegetables and pastas, but the pizza is king! Friendly and efficient service, and beautiful location with great view

The pumpkin flowers appetizer and the pepper cream pasta is to die for. Absolutely amazing. I wish we would have eaten at this restaurant more on our recent stay.

Our first meal in Positano recommended by our hotelier and we were very pleased. It is slightly set back from the busy main drag and has a nicely landscaped terrace with views. Modestly priced house wine was just fine for our crew. Staff was very friendly and continued to say hello daily as we walked by en route to the... More
