We stayed in Montepertuso for the weekend, and went here both nights for dinner, we had the time of our life: First night: Our hotelier said he was at dinner when we checked in (a lot lost in translation- we asked if it was a restaurant we could go to, he said yes I'll tell them you're coming...) we get...

We were very lucky in that we were there for the closing night before winter vacation. It was fantastic - all locals, fantastic food, and fantastic traditional Neapolitan music and song. Had the fish done in "crazy water" which was light and full of flavor. Deserts were light and not too sweet. Service was outstanding. Highly recommend this as a... More

What a wonderful experience! Barba Salvatore is THE personality of Il Ritrovo and definitely makes your meal a dining event! We liked it so much we went three times in a week! There are two areas. We preferred the original restaurant section which hung generously with bunches of cherry tomatoes, peppers and herbs. And of course if you want outside,... More

We visited Il Ritrovo in a group of friends off peak season, in winter. The place is located literally "above" Positano which implies a bit of a climb and curved roads, but it is just about 4 km from Positano centre and absolutely worth the effort. This is probably the best food in the region and the staff was attentive,... More

Firstly, the best thing about this place is its cool decor - this place is so so charming. Now for the best - the food is terrific, the service is outstanding and the bus pick up from central Positano is a nice touch. Best dish: magic water fish - best dish so far in Italy Enjoy

We came across Il Rotrovo on our way back through Montepertuso after walking up Croce de la Conocchia, (where we also got engaged) The food was fabulous with an amazing view down over Positano. Cannot recommend enough!!

We ate at this restaurant two nights in a row because we liked it so much the first time. The chef/owner Salvatore is very welcoming and cheerful. The staff are helpful and friendly. Il Ritrovo has a wonderful wine selection including a wide variety of wines from the local area. Salvatore shared some of his home made limoncello with us... More
