In the hills of Positano, this little gem is an authentic and quirky spot that is the perfect place to watch the sunset! Lots of places in Positano offer lovely views but the food doesn’t quite match up, this place does!! We were collected by...the free shuttle service (and taken home) and the driver was lovely! We had antipasti, first and seconds as well as dessert and the wine list was extensive as well. The service was very quick and helpful and the food was super! We really enjoyed our visit and would definitely return!!More

We had reserved a table outside, but they could not find the reservation when we arrived. So then we ended up inside at a table next to the kitchen and WC, without getting an apologize or smile from the lady in charge. The food was...very disappointing, I don’t know how they get this high rating. After we finished our dinner, it took 1,5 hour before they asked if we wanted a dessert. This is the worst experience we had in Italy… Overpriced and bad service. Stay away!!More

We booked this restaurant for my partners 30th Birthday and were over the moon with the result. We were given the corner table with an AMAZING view and sunset. The food was totally out of this world, we had bruschetta, lobster pasta and a tom...hawk steak. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Positano, it was definitely our favourite by far, topped off by the fact they picked us up from our apartment. Great restaurant!!!More

I called the restaurant who arranged a pick up service in Positano to take us to our dinner. The view is amazing, the food very good and we enjoyed our tortellini, lobster and steak.

A Memorable and Delicious Meal! I am a “foodie” from NYC and have had quite a few great meals in my life. I will remember my meal at Ritrovo as one of my favorites. The food was delicious from start to finish. The grilled octopus...(cooked to perfection), stuffed zucchini flowers, pasta with clams and shrimp, and pistachio/chocolate mouse were my favorites, but everything we ordered was a 10/10. The service was equally fantastic. Everyone was very attentive and helpful, but what stood out was that the restaurant had one of the drivers take us all the way to our hotel (in the next town over) when they realized how late it was and that we were staying there and not in Positano. This was way above and beyond and their generosity is appreciated and will be remembered.More

Most incredible restaurant we tried during our stay in Positano. They sent a shuttle bus to pick up our family of 6 from our rental home to avoid walking up the hill. The restaurant is set on a hill with a beautiful view of the...town and sea. We were offered complimentary Prosecco while we waited to be seated. We were also treated with complimentary Limoncello and granitas for the kids at the end. The service was impeccable. A+ for presentation, cleanliness, and prompt service. Friendly staff fluent in English.More

We only wanted to have a coffee on the terrace on the Plaza outside the restaurant. This was obviously not welcome (it was late afternoon, the restaurant was empty) and we felt we were intruders. The service was extremely unfriendly making us feel uncomfortable. But...the worst was yet to come, an old man who was obviously part of the restaurant was sweeping the square while we were sitting there, and he forced us to jump up so he could clean were we where sitting! I told him in Italian we would leave in the next minutes but we wasn't listening or reacting. He practically chased us away with the broom! So we left. I don't think I have ever been treated like this! It was the worst experience on the whole Amalfi coast where everybody was very friendly. NOT HERE!! Maybe we weren't pretty enough as we were sweaty and had just done the Sentiero degli Dei. AND the coffee was very expensive!More

We booked a table with a view ahead of time, and called to confirm the day of reservation. After we paid 40 euros to get there, we were told they only had tables available at the back of the restaurant, with no view whatsoever. We...told the hostess that we booked and called to confirm, and just spent 40 euros to get there. She shrugged off our concerns and said she had no other options to us. We ended up getting a taxi back, paying for it again, and going to a different restaurant. She should have told us ahead of time their table situation. We are very disappointed.More

You get the free shuttle up to what seems to be a mainly residential area of Positano with a view down the valley but not across to Positano. At this stage we wondered if we’d made the right choice, but after the amazing meal you...realise it’s all about the food. My wife and I shared an amazing Tomahawk steak, cooked to perfection and full of flavour. The local wine recommended to us was sensational and the desert was amazing as well. Great food, low key, friendly and fabulous. Don’t miss this out on your trip to Positano.More

Visiting the area we went here tonight for dinner I will start by saying multiple People in our party have been in the service industry and waited on people before. We understand during these times that places are short staffed overworked and underpaid. However, I...have never been treated so rudely by an establishment by multiple employees. Our dinner reservation was at 5:30 PM we did not get our food until 745. There were multiple tables around us that got their food well before us. After the first hour of waiting for our food we began asking the waiter when we could find him how long it would be before we were fat. He tried to be as accommodating and asked us what He could do to make our time better, my father asked for another glass of wine a few times but never received it. One of the oil bottles was accidentally knocked off the table and we asked one of the bus boys if we could get someone to clean it up or at least provide some thing and that was not done there were shards of glass over the floor and oil close to our our children were all sitting. A different server came over at a time asked If we grew up in a barn and that normally customers clean up after themselves. She told us also that we were awful as she walked away from the table. As my husband and I walked out with two of our children she then asked us where are you from then she saw her license plate from Illinois and said oh it explains a lot. If you are visiting the area from Illinois I strongly suggest you stay away from this establishment their staff is arrogant rude and do not know how to Execute customer service especially When issues arise for their customers. There is no reason why pizza and pasta should take two hours to make. Food is mediocre at best their minestrone soup was mushy and we had to ask several times for bread. Stay away!More

Doesn’t get much better than il ritrovo!! Aside from the amazing view, warm casual environment, friendly and fun staff, the food is incredible!! Creative and simple dishes are done perfectly. I love it here and went for 3 meals in a row!!
