One of the best meal in Italy

We went to il Ritrovo during our stay in Positano and we really enjoyed it very much, great food, fab atmosphere and amazing service. We where pick up from our B&B with the free shuttle service they offer and when we arrived they gave us free prosecco and free starter to start with and this is was... read more

We have been several days in the Amalfi Coast and Il Ritrovo is, by far, the best place where we have had dinner. The hosts were kind and warming; the atmosphere was full of charm, with a lovely decoration; the food was excellent, with a complete menu with traditional and delicious dishes. We will return!!

As many stars as possible for this restaurant! Both the food and the service were excellent -- everything made it stand out as one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in which we ate in Italy. We traveled from Venice to Florence to Rome to Capri to Positano and ate at lots of well-recommended restaurants. I would not... More

While Il Ritrovo isn't technically in Positano, it's in Montepertuso, which is just up the hill, and effectively in the same town. Paolo, the owner, is an amazing host, and made sure our meal was a special one. With an extensive (and I mean extensive!) wine list, this makes some of the more expensive restaurants in Positano seem irrelevant. We... More

Think of a little fairy village in Montepertuso, three kilometres straight up the mountain, from Positano. It has one grocer, one church, and in typical southern Italian style, one professional-size soccer field and four restaurants. I like to categorise it as a mountain restaurant, one of my favourites. You better be hungry, as the portions are huge. The owner has... More

Had a tremendous, delicious dinner here in mid-November with my wife. Having had much pizza, pasta and seafood - we opted for carne, and had two fabulous steak dinners. Hers was perfectly grilled - and far more than she could eat (but the leftovers were great!). Mine was covered in a rich sauce and delicious mushrooms - it was truly... More

We took the complimentary bus up to the restaurant which worked very well. The food was delicious and we enjoyed eating in the summer-house part of the restaurant across the pavement from the main restaurant. They were friendly and the food was tasty.

We just spent a week in Montepertuso, the little town perched above Positano and were introduced to this restaurant by one of the locals. The decor is warm and reflective of the season and the staff are attentive and friendly. This is not fast food - thank goodness - so settle in and be ready for good home made Italian.... More

We have tried this restaurant with my husband. The place is far away from the city center but no problem they have a free shuttle for customers. Very delicious food and they are very kind in service. We had mixed meat, pasta, caprese and dessert with wine. They serve a lot of things from the house which make you think... More
