We were married in Positano 10 years ago and returned to celebrate our anniversary. We had 12 people travel to Positano to join us for a celebration lunch. We chose II Ritrovo. What an amazing experience from start to finish. Melina organised our 5 course menu with two options of seafood and meat/chicken. Melina's attention to detail made our day... More

This was one of the food highlights of our stay. Everything was perfect from being picked up at our hotel so being taken back down. The driver even stopped the car on the way up to let us take a picture of the full moon over the water. We were welcomed with a complementary glass of prosecco and given amazing... More

I had one of the most amazing meals I've ever had here. The service was above and beyond any place I've been. The chef was so nice and really appreciate that I was savoring each bite. I've never seen plates piled so high with the best seafood I've ever had. Wow!! Go here if you get the chance!

This restaurant has amazing views and the food is delicious! We shared a variety of starters and they were all fresh and very tasty. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a complimentary glass of prosecco, and were also given complimentary bruschetta. The owner Salvatore was very friendly and welcoming and gave us free herbs to take home with us. Would... More

We dined here last night on the recommendation of our hotel, and it was outstanding. The service and hospitality was wonderful, particularly with respect to our two small children - the staff chatted to them, offered simpler dishes and rushed to bring their meals quickly. The lobster linguine was the kind of dish you'll remember for years to come. Our... More

What a great evening dining experience. Il Ritrovo serves excellent food combined with a special service. We took an outside table for a sunset view of positano. Following a proseco we had a seafood plate with smoked fishes, crab, octopus, sardines, that was tasty. The mains, a lobster pasta and a grilled sea bass were perfectly seasoned and served hot....

Dining at Il Ritrovo was a wonderful experience, one of the best restaurants on our trip through Italy. Free shuttle from Positano, welcoming, friendly and attentive staff with great food and delicious dessert. The view of Positano from the terrace was beautiful. We declined the shuttle back and walked the thousand steps which was an additional treat. Highly recommended!

If you don't know about this restaurant, then there is no chance you would reach this place. Because it's not in the main city of Positano. It's at a small village close to Positano, reached through a beautiful drive across winding lanes on the mountains, overlooking acres of greenery. They arrange pick & drop from your hotel, hence, if you... More

We just had an amazing meal at Il Ritrovo. Food was excellent (the steak for two is recommended); service was friendly and free transfers to and from the restaurant. Lovely views of the bay as well. Recommended.

This place is fantastic. It is situated up in Monetpertuso (a neighbourhood of Positano) and further up the mountain. They offer free shuttle services to and from their restaurant. The restaurant has a nice terrace, that looks out over the town and the mountain. The service and staff are exceptional. They really want you to have a pleasurable experience. They... More
