We celebrated my mother's 91 birthday here. It was a windy road trip up to the restaurant, but well worth it. They even provided a free shuttle. The food and wine were divine. Everything we ordered was delicious and fresh. I wish I was dining there right now!

Food, wine, ambiance and great customer service. 2 complimentary proseccos and raspberry sorbets. Complimentary shuttle service to and from hotel. Awesome fresh food. And a free small bottle of wine to go, what more can you ask for?

If we had been seated at a table removed from the bread / dessert preparation area we may have enjoyed our meal somewhat more. The food was OK - it wasn't bad but certainly not the best of our week in Positano. The view from our table was lovely but what spoiled our evening was watching the wait staff with... More

We visited Il Ritrovo once and our experience was so overwhelmingly positive we returned for a second meal on our last night in Positano. First of all, the views from the restaurant are simply gorgeous. The first night we ate there we arrived very early and so had the benefit of watching the sunset from our open air spot on... More

First let me say that the food is amazing. We were there twice and we were not disappointed in the least with any meals. Also the view is spectacular, great location. My rating is mostly based on those two things.. The service was not what I expected, on both visits. They are a busy restaurant, understandably one of the best... More

My friends and I participated in the 1-day cooking school offered by Chef Salvatore and his aunt. We made 5 cheese ravioli, tagnatelle, stuffed zucchini flowers and a mixed nuts sweet while Chef Sal made the sauce and demonstrated how to cook the veal and fish. When all was ready, we sat down to enjoy our food - it was... More

We brought a group of 9 for lunch and a group of 7 for lunch and then enjoyed lunch as a group of 5. Chef Salvatore prepared a great menu for our groups and everyone loved everything. Homemade pasta with seafood was a huge hit! We took the bus up and although it was packed, we had a blast. Several... More

When you go to Italy, you obviously expect delicious, authentic food. If you go to Positano, you MUST, MUST, MUST go to visit Ritrovo. The restaurant is set up in the mountains above Positano with Salvatore Barba as the consummate host. He is the owner, chef, front-man and knows how to make you feel comfortable. My wife and I had...
