Pleasant waiting staff and good food. The pizzas are great - they also do takeaway - and the pasta is very tasty.

Wonderful experiences. We ate here a couple of times and enjoyed each visit. Food and service were memorable. Given Positano prices, the experience was resonably priced. After walking a lot, I stopped in and wanted a glass of wine. Although they weren't open yet, a server poured me a delightful glass of house red, which was perfect. Very accommodating. Will... More

My wife and I brought my her sister and her brother-in-law to Positano on their first trip to Italy. After living in the country for 2 months we told them how friendly the Italian folks can be and how AMAZING the food was. Well, Il Fornillo in Positano validated both of our statements as the service was especially inviting and... More

Food was ok. One thing i didnt like was that they don't let you add a side of pasta to go with your main dish. If you want pasta side you need to order one of the pasta main dishes at full price. I found service quick but not friendly.

Service was minimal, food was uninspiring. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was special either. So many wonderful choices in Positano, but this isn't one of them.

On a hill over looking the sea this is a friendly, welcoming restaurant. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We went back twice during our seven days stay (on balance I preferred it to both the Michelin starred restaurant we visited in Ravello and the restaurant in our hotel - the Villa Franca).

We had the dinner for my daughter's wedding here for 15 people. Even though it was arranged less than two weeks before the event they were most accommodating and provided wonderful food and service. The staff was friendly and attentive, especially regarding the meal choices for my two young grandchildren. Everyone agreed that it was a wonderful meal and a... More

We had two dinners at this restaurant and from the gentlemen waiters to the two sisters that own and operate the restaurant, we were warmly greeted and taken care of exceptionally well. From several exceptional starters to our first and second courses, the food was absolutely delicious and well priced. The house red wine was very nice and the closing... More
