Based on the reviews we read here and recommendations from friends, I brought my family here for dinner one night and was a bit underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong, the food was OK (to good), though with surprisingly "smallish" servings, and the service (we were out on the patio) a bit understaffed. I thought the ravioli dish I had was...

We went to Il Ritrovo based on its ranking from TripAdvisor. Despite a reservation, our table was not in the section with a view, but rather back in the main house by the kitchen. Friendly service, but just not what we expected after reading other reviews. I had a seafood paella which was very good, but my daughter had a... More

Eat here for lunch every year and the food is always top notch. Restaurant has had a make over (outside part) since last year and now looks even better. Muted table decor, white washed walls, and potted olive trees placed throughout the restaurant.It is very smart. Food excellent, grilled prawns to start - very fresh and just with salt and... More

We ate here on our last night in Positano, selecting this restaurant on the great trip advisor reviews. As we were staying locally they sent their shuttle service to collect us, it arrived on time which was great. The trip to the restaurant, based on Montepertuso (hill above Positano) took about 20 minutes. We had a great table on the... More

A real adventure - the free restaurant mini bus picks you up from Positano and takes you 10 minutes up the hill to a wonderful family restaurant with stunning views. The evening is made complete by magnificent southern Italian food including perfect al dente pasta and very good seafood indeed that's locally sourced. 5 out of 5 all day every... More

This restaurant is located quite high up in Positano so the shuttle bus which picks you up is great! It is hassle free and the staff are so friendly! We had a wonderful meal! The eggplant melanzane was delicious as was the cured meats antipasto. The pasta's were well cooked and very tasty. We were given complementary bruschetta and biscuits... More

Had an amazing experience at Il Ritrovo - thanks to a beautiful couple from Sweden who told us they were going there. We ended up joining them for dinner. We hit it off completely! Similar fun people just like us! We got a shuttle to this restaurant from our hotel, Domina Royal and it was a truly wonderful experience. The... More

Il Ritrovo was recommended to us by the staff at the B&B where we stayed. The restaurant is in Montepertusso situated above Positano. I happened to be just a five minute walk from our B&B. The food was excellent and the staff consisting of Paulo, Luigi and Roger made our night very enjoyable. Make your decision for dinner an easy... More

Based on the tripadvisor's experiences we expected much better. Location is nice, the antipasti was very promising but the main courses were not good. Too much sauce and different tastes, no typical Italian style, a waste.
