I've eaten at a dozen VPN wood fired pizzaerias. Ill Ritrovo is the best by far even in the middle of nowhere Sheboygan, WI. You can taste every single ingredient. They source locally and organically. The fonduta is heaven. The service is friendly.

I travel all over the US with my job and this is one of the best Italian restaurants I have visited . The food is superb, the pizza authentic wood fired pizza, the menu imaginative,... More

The outside looks a little dated and the murals are a bit unnecessary but the people are fantastic and the food is terrific. The wood-fired pizza seemed to be most popular but the everything we ordered was incredibly balanced and original without being bizarre. The bar and market section of the place are also fun. What a gem. Bring change... More

Went as a family at christmas time to ll Ritrovo. The Restaurant is decorated very nicely to go with the atomshere. The staff are very knowlegeable and helpful. The drinks are a bit pricey but are very good. What makes this restaurant unique is the wood fired pizza oven. I will state if you are looking for the typical red... More

I cannot recommend this place more highly. I have eaten here about seven times over the last three years and each time the pizza, pasta, soup and salad have been fantastic! The service is always exceptional with well-informed and helpful staff. After your meal walk through past the bar to their store where you can buy the best gourmet cookies... More

You won't be disappointed. Try a pizza you have never had before, like, the Prosciutto Crudo e Ruchetta. Yum! After lunch, shop next door at the market for authentic Italian ingredients.

Quality and delicious pizzeria. Wish they had pasta, even basic spaghetti and carbonara noodles would suffice so I guess wanting more is the negative. It's a very pleasant experience with great cocktails well made with fresh fruits squeezed. Pricey cosmos but for that moment, there is no retreat about the supreme style and manner the prepare and serve their cocktails.

We planned on going to the Field and Fork; but they had just stopped their service. So we went next door to Il Ritrovo. Had a bowl of potato leek soup. It was good; but I make better. Ordered two pizzas. They were very good. Drank water. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. But $42 is pretty steep, add... More

I recently started work in Sheboygan and everyone kept telling me about the great "trio" of restaurants including this one. Best bruschetta and Margherita pizza I've had outside of Italy. It might even beat anything I had there.
