Ristorante il Ritrovo

$$ Positano Italian Fodor's Choice

Fodor’s Expert 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 accompanied by well-grilled vegetables, or the house specialty, zuppa saracena, a paella-like affair brimming with assorted seafood. Leave space for the lemon tiramisù, owner Salvatore's own recipe, paired with one of 80 different kinds of a homemade liqueur (try carob or even chamomile). Salvatore also runs a cooking school, at which you can learn to whip up his creations at home.
