Our Il Ritrovo Cooking School experience was amazing! We arrived at the restaurant and sat down for Cappuccino's and a taste of the wonderful Brutto ma Buono Cookies (which we would learn to make later that morning). After a few laughs and some much-needed caffeine, we hit the kitchen. Marylu was a fantastic teacher. Il Ritrovo was recommended to our... More

I can't recommend this place enough. The food and the service had me almost in tears! I highly recommend trying the Pasta Bolognese (it was a special) & also the Torta Caprese. All of the waiters were extremely polite, attentive and pleasant. The restaurant was decorated exceptionally and the atmosphere was simply perfect. At the end of the meal, we... More

We went here for dinner over our stay in Positano and it was so romantic and yummy. We had an excellent view of the ocean, and the food was amazing. I especially like the little touches, like the free trio of appetizers, desserts, and champagne.

This clifftop restaurant offers a lovely view, attentive wait staff, excellent food, and shuttle service. Our party of 10 was well treated, and the restaurant staff members even brought out some extra, complimentary items for us to enjoy -- not just once, but a couple of times!

The current rating of this restaurant really has me scratching my head. Firstly lets separate out the reviews...some are for the cooking classes which we did not do and some are for the restaurant. This review is for the restaurant. We booked this restaurant purely based on TripAdvisor reviews....clearly reviewers who have given this restaurant a good review were drunk... More

I spent dinner on my last night on the Alamafi coast at Il Ritrovo and could not ask for a better parting gift. The service and atmosphere was perfect. My friend and I were staying in Nocelle, and had been told about Il Ritrovo and the cooking classes they offered. We had our last dinner there and from the moment... More

We had dinner here not once, but twice. The food and wine were very good, the terrace room and views were incredible. Second night, the service was a little off, like they were short staffed, but the food and desserts were still amazing... If you visit Positano, you must have dinner here. They will even pick you up at your... More

The restaurant came recommended by many people so we decided to try it. The service was terrible. We had to ask for water, to have our drink orders taken and for our meal orders to be taken. They were clearly understaffed. The venue felt very Americanized--not authentic. The main maitre'D seemed bothered by our questions. The appetizers were good and... More
