Fodor's Review

Sitting in the tiny town square of Montepertuso, 1,500 feet up the mountainside from Positano, the Ritrovo has been noted for its cucina for more than 20 years. Call for the free shuttle service to and from Positano, and take a seat on the terrace's frescoed wood-paneled dining area. The menu showcases food from both the sea and the hills—try the scialatielli ai frutti di mare (seafood pasta) accompanied by well-grilled vegetables, or the house specialty, zuppa saracena, a paella-like affair brimming with assorted seafood. Leave space for the lemon tiramisu, owner Salvatore's own recipe, paired with one of 80 different kinds of a homemade liqueur (try the carob or even chamomile). Salvatore also runs a cooking school, at which you can learn to whip up his creations at home.

Less than expected

Although the restaurant offers a transfer from the hotel that we were staying (Le Agavi)and the different experience up to the mountain, the service was very disappointing. It started with a 30-min delay on the transfer from our hotel to the restaurant. When we arrive, the maitre was even unpollite and disrespectful by telling us that we could not order since he was very busy. Once we ordered, we have patiently waited almost 1 hour for our dinner

to be served and the food was almost cold when arrived. It was the worst pasta that my wife have ate during our 20-day honeymoon. I do not recommend this restaurant given that there are a lot more possible restaurants to get a pleasant and amazing dinner in Positano.
