Or at least it appears that you are atop the mountain as you look down on Positano. All of the ingredients are fresh and well prepared to make for an amazing meal. Come for dinner or stop by in the afternoon for a siesta. In either case you will leave happy and filled with great local food.

Delicious authentic Italian cuisine. Family run. They couldn't do enough to make my experience all the more enjoyable. One of the best restaurants in the area.

This is a true authentic Italian restaurant. In a small town steps above Positano overlooking the Mediterranean Sea! A must visit, not like many of the tourist restaurants you may get stuck trying. This is the real deal! Delicious!

We celebrated our engagement at Il Ritrovo in August. I contacted them ahead of time and they went out of their way to ensure we had a special night celebrating. We received a complimentary dessert (Italian cookies) and bruschetta. Our steak for two was outstanding. They even pick you up in front of your resort since located in the mountains.... More

The food is terrific and the wait staff is attentive and friendly. We ate there twice during our 1-week stay in the Amalfi coast. It was our favorite restaurant.

The restaurant is up in a village at the top of the mountain behind Positano. It's about a 20 minute drive and they pick you up at the hotel. Given the distance and the fact that tourists rarely have a car in this area, it's the only way they would have people come to dine. IL Ritrovo is a truely... More

We traversed the Path of the Gods to Nocelle and walked down the road to this restaurant for lunch.Several hours walking gave us a great hunger and the Giant T Bone(1kg of meat) to share was outstanding. With a mixed seafood grill (shared) for entree and a desert each, it was a memorable meal. Service and quality are of a... More

Recommended by the host at our villa, this restaurant was a highlight of our Amalfi Coast dining. The room was warm and even a bit romantic. Set high on the hillside, it was an experience that will not be forgotten. The food and service were both outstanding and the prices were excellent. we would definitely return. Don't worry about getting... More
