My husband and I really enjoyed eating here. The dining room was beautiful. The restaurant has a car to pick you up, since it's a far walk from most hotels, which was no cost to us. they gave us complementary bruschetta, a little dessert, and limoncello. we did not even ask for this, so it was a pleasant surprise. the...

We dined here twice during our stay in Positano. I could not fault the food nor the service. On arrival you are treated with a free glass of prosecco and after we ordered we were presented with free appertifs. We certainly did not leave the place hungry! After dinner we were given free sorbet and a free shot of limoncello.... More

My husband and I had a wonderful lunch here! The atmosphere is wonderful and views are beautiful! The food is delicious and prices are reasonable. What stood out the most was the excellent service! The staff is so friendly and attentive. The free shuttle back to town is a great touch. I recommend eating here 100%!

Maybe it's the reviews - Trip Advisor or Frommers- or maybe just the myth, but I had heightened expectations for il Ritrovo. The drive was pleasant and we appreciated the pick up at Positano. Our driver was delightful. We were welcomed warmly by a young woman who greeted us at the steps. After that, we were sort of forgotten. We... More

Terrible experience. The service was awful and we barely saw our waiter. They pack way too many people into the restaurant and simply cannot keep up. Food is very average at best. Extremely disappointing and we would never suggest this place to anyone.

Loved the transport to this cute place; such a lovely view. Service was excellent and food was very nice-seafood shines here. Anyone staying in this area should take the trip up the hill for this very good restaurant.

First of all, it is in the hills above the town and they send a shuttle to get you. It feels like a family taking care of you. They give you bruschetta and what appeared to be a fritter. We had rose and a local red wine. We shared the best eggplant parm ever and we are from Brooklyn! We... More

Reflecting about this wonderful meal still puts a smile on my face a month later as I write this review. First, if you wanted to have a large party or gathering close to Positano this would be the place.They have a private cellar room that dreams are made of! Ok back to general info- Il Ritrovo sends a driver to... More
