My two daughters and I ate there today. There was a long wait, but it was worth it. We got the bruschetta, It was very good, but not what I'm used to. There was one small tomato on each piece of bread with a bit of basil and cheese on both ends of the bread. The pizza was delicious. It... More

After spending several days with our friends in Milwaukee it was suggested by them that we stop in Sheboygan for lunch at II Ritrovo. This place is fantastic. Our waiter said the owner has traveled back and forth to Italy at least 50 times since the place opened. Each time he returns with new ideas on how to improve the... More

We arrived to Sheboygan late in the evening on our road trip from Chicago to Door County. We had two tired and hungry kids in the back seat and were desperate for kid friendly place with non junk food and coffee (we needed that caffeine!). We found this place name on tripadvisor and decided to head there, the place was... More

Prior to our trip to play golf at Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits, my son was told about this place and after we played Erin Hills, the caddies there raved about it. So off we went into downtown Sheboygan and boy, was the trip worth it!! The wait staff was very friendly and explained what was in every dish and... More

1 of 4 restaurants that the King if Sheboygan-Stefano owns. My favorite of the 4 for the perfect balance of food and laid back atmosphere. Consistent food and service make me dream of their pizzas. Can't recommend this place more - works for a casual date or place to bring the fam.

Some of the best wood-fired pizza we've ever had, and the bread is fantastic! The calzone was good, too, but the pizza was fantastic! I ordered the tiramisu for dessert but had to take it to go because I was so stuffed. It was also fabulous!

My husband and I visited 8/1/2014. All service was pleasant and well-timed. My glass of Multipuciano was delicious and generous. Now for the food....the Caldo de Mare (mussels and clams) had no more than three small clams which was not a big deal. But the pizza...we ordered the Affumicata...this pizza arrived with almost no cheese. I make my own pizzas... More

This place is a true foodie find on the shores of Lake Michigan. Who would have guessed that a wood fired pizza oven existed in Sheboygan. We loved both pizzas -- thin crust, rich flavored ingredients and excellent service. We did have to wait 25 minutes and every seat was taken. Huge groups of 20 - 30 occupied tables in... More

This place makes me feel as if I am in Naples, Italy! Fantastic wine list, all fresh ingredients, wood fired pizza oven just like in Italy and the menu includes mozzarella di bufala. Prices are appropriate for the serving size and excellent quality of food. Service was fantastic and staff are very knowledgable and helpful with recommendations. Highly recommend if... More
