Description: Ritrovo was established in 1995 as South Africa's first fully authentic Italian fine dining venue. Over the last 20 years Ritrovo has won more than 50 local and international awards and has become SA's most award winning Italian restaurant. At Ritrovo fresh seasonal ingredients and very traditional Italian regional specialities fuse with old school European restaurant service and a magnificent 10,000+ bottle wine cellar with two internationally qualified sommeliers to guide you through its treasures. With the owners always on hand Ritrovo is an experience to be savoured and enjoyed in comfort.

Ritrovo Restaurant is a small restaurant tucked away in waterkloof well worth the drive
from anywhere. Choose from the small bistro casual dining side or the fine dining side...
both menu's the same. We always sit in the bistro..great service for sure. Well looked
after by Forti and his dad! The menu has plenty to chose from plus whatever specials are
offered that night. Great wine list...a little high in price but good qualities to choose from.
Highly recommended!

Great food and ambience! The seafood platter was not on the menu, but we had one made up that was probably the best I've had. Pricey, but it included King Prawns and Lobster! It's served with the most delicious creamy rice! Great venue for a special occasion!

I never knew that I am actually living right next door to this supurb restuarant. Booking was easy and a window seat was allowcated as promised. Ritrovo has a "feelgood" atmosphere, good service, yummy food and great wine. Thank you for a perfect dine.
