Positano is a famous place for the glitterati and rich and famous, If you travel high up to the top of the mountain you will find a little village called Montepertuso. It's here that we stayed and ate some of the best Italian cuisine in the region. At Il Ritrovo the staff bend over backwards to serve you and make... More

We went here twice during our stay in Positano and the food is fantastic! If your looking for authentic southern Italian food this is the place. The mussels and clams are so fresh!! You can't go wrong with any seafood pasta dish here. The service is really good. The cost is more pricey but worth every dollar. Il Ritrovo is... More

Our accommodation in Montepertuso was very hard to access but this restaurant more than made up for it. Our children are 7,9 and 11 and after six months in Europe they still tell people about this restaurant. To be made to feel welcome with three young children is not common, even in Italy. Paelo and Luigi made every meal enjoyable... More

Have been to Il Ritrovo many times (july every year) and lunch here is one of the highlights of our trip. Grilled prawns, fresh pasta and excellent grilled fish and meats. A great wine list with Cevaro at €50 a real bargin. The owner is very charming and we always are given a little gift to take away as a... More

If you are in Positano you need to visit Il Ritrovo. This family run business is located on top on the hill in Montepertuso and the food is just sensational. The waiters are very friendly and attentive, we had the Zuppa saracenda (for 2 people) and boy was the best fish dish we have had, really good. The food we... More

We were on the Amalfi Coast this past November for our 40th wedding anniversary trip and went to Il Ritrovo again the day we stayed in Positano. It was a great dining experience. Our hostess at our B&B (Villa Mary) called and... More

We visited Il Ritrovo in April but still having wonderful memories about it. Too bad we didn't try the menus as we were not so hungry but the main meal, pasta and desserts we ordered were really excellent, as well as their wine. I also loved the little present, a bag of spice mix, I made some great pastas with... More
