We had come into Asheville on a motorcycle ride and heard about Ritrovo thru tripadvisor, so decided to check it out. We finally found the place and arrived just as they were closing, but Peter let us in anyway. Rachel and Tess were our waitresses and were both delightful. Service was quick and efficient. We each order their Verde salads...which were simple but delicious...mixed greens with shaved parmesan and a light vinagrette. We (my hubby and brother and myself) ordered the Farmhouse Sicilian pizza and the Napolian style Margharita pizza. Both were exceptional...fresh and authentic. We're hooked....if only we lived closer!
We'll definitely come back another time before we leave. We still have the gelato to order, although Tess was kind enough to bring us a sample. We didn't have room tonight but another time, for sure!

Ritovo pizza is excellent! we enjoyed everyone we have tried. Our favorite is the Salsisse (italian sausage). service is always friendly and we are looking forward to our next visit! Now that they are merging with their sister restaurant , Nona Mia we are expecting an even better experience!

Take the time to go to West Asheville to experience "a touch of Italy". Begin with sharing the 'Rustica' salad that pairs lemon vinaigrette and blue cheese crumbles, a taste bud wake up call. Pizzas are thin, authentic and wood fired. They make their sausage on site, so try adding fennel sausage. The grape tomato addition to my wife's Margherita pizza was a extra bonus. Did not have room for the gelato.

Best West Asheville location to sit on a great porch and eat great pizza. They have good local beer specials and their wood oven pizza is fantastic. We are locals and will be going back.
