Great service (our waittress was awesome) and very tasty food. View isn't all it's hyped up to be (you don't actually see much b/c the location is a bit tucked away, esp relative to neighboring restaurants). Free shuttle service to hotel if you make reservation for dinner - honestly the best views were during the drive up (as opposed to... More

We have been traveling in Italy for 3 weeks, visited bunch of big and small cities. There is no other restaurant like Il Ritrovo! Great food and atmosphere, excellent and friendly service. Restaurant looks like a "fine dining" venue, but they make you feel like a part of the family. Any food requests are granted, complementary prosecco and bruschetta, as... More

Great view with equally great food. I had the set menu which had many tempting dishes. Even though we had set menu they still brought out Chef's treats at no extra cost. Very relaxed feel in a great location. We were staying nearby so walked but also supply free pick ups from Positano

The food was fabulous but what set our experience apart were our wonderful hosts. Our waiter, sommelier, host and even chef Salavadore were welcoming and lovely. There are several great restaurants in Positano, but Il Ritrovo stole both our heart and stomach! Don't worry about having to take the shuttle from town it works great and is free. Must do... More

Romantic terrace overlooking Montepertuso in the mountains above Positano. Worth the 20 minute bus ride up the hill. I found the service exceptional. The young waitresses were very friendly and spoke very good english. Many of the ingredients are grown from the chef's personal garden. My wife had homemade pasta with tomato sauce and fresh cherry tomatoes, I had a... More

We enjoyed our first dinner so much we decided to come back for our final night in Positano. Must gets are the veggie platter for an app (they just pick what's fresh from their garden) and the pasta with pink sauce and sausage.

Without doubt the two meals ( i made the same choice) we had,in a large family group, were the best we had the entire holiday. The first time half of us arrived very late as the bus was late and then overfull so we had to find a taxi for seven. The restaurtant handled the problem as if there were... More

The staff at Il Ritrovo went above and beyond to ensure a pleasant evening. I made reservations via email that were confirmed in a timely manner. We were picked up at the promised time and location. I informed them that I would be proposing to my girlfriend earlier in the day, and that this dinner would be celebrating our special... More

Seafood was excellent as well as the rack of lamb. Both hot and cold appetizers were available as well as home made pasta. We visited them twice and had outstanding meals both times. The owner is related to the owners of Mama Rosa's B&B and offer a free shuttle service between the ristorante and the B&B.

We had a delicious meal here, our best during our five day stay in Positano/Montepertuso. The service was fantastic and the meal though quite pricy for us was excellent value.
