Situated in the town just above Positano, this restaurant is a must visit for anyone in Positano. The shuttle will pick you up from your hotel and drop you back off (painless). The views are amazing, the food is amazing and service is top notch. It was a great value (not too expensive) A++

My wife talked me into doing the hike up from Positano. Excruciating. I only made it because I knew there would have to be a restaurant/bar at the top. Coming around the last corner where we rejoined the road [and the bus back down!!] there was Il Retrovo. My salvation! Fantastic. Excellent service. Helpful with suggestions. Super fast to get...

We ate here for a rehearsal dinner. The food was very good and the service was impeccable. My husband had the fish and chips and I had an antipasto salad. Both dishes were very good and my husband said the cole slaw was the best he ever had. The seating for our group of 20 was a little tight but... More

We (family of 7) took the cooking class and learned to make ravioli stuffed with a ricotta, gorgonzola, mascarpone and parmesan cheese mix along with walnuts; we help make the sauce of basil, parsley, and tomatoes. We then made tagliatelle pasta with a porcini mushroom sauce coupled with veal scallopine. The appetizer was caprese insalata and bruschetta with pomodoro, olive... More

We made a reservation with a party of 6 & ate on the outside patio- so I haven't seen the inside of the restaurant. I was a little disappointed by this- as having read so many great reviews about this place I wanted to get the full experience. The patio was very full & only had 2 or 3 waiters... More

Well, I have to say this is the FIRST TIME my experience COMPLETELY clashed with the majority of reviewers for any place or item on TripAdvisor. Read many, many positive, glowing reviews of this restaurant, so expected a great meal and evening. Right from the start, things did not go well. Got there on time for our reservation and we... More

Went here on our last night in Positano , heard great things about it! It was lovely, they come to get you from your hotel as they are far up at the top of the hill! The view was nice, food was very good , however I like being down by the water better, and I do not like the... More
