Father and son team Giovanni & Fortunato Mazzone invite you to enjoy authentic cuisine and old-school service at Pretoria's premiere Italian restaurant!
With their culinary roots deep in the fertile soils of the Campania region, the Ritrovo team serves up classics like Spagetti alla Napoletana and Saltimbocca alla Romana, as well as lesser known regional specialities like Peperonata con Salsiccia and house specialities that are as popular now as they were when the restaurant opened 20 years ago. All food is made with the finest ingredients and bread, stocks, pasta and sauces are made fresh in the Ritrovo kitchen every day.
Ritrovo offers something for every taste: our main dining room is a classic take on an Italian ristorante; the bistro & delicatessen is refreshingly informal and often echoes with laughter and animated conversations; and for the truly discerning guests our wine cellar offers an exclusive and private venue for small and large groups.
Long-term regulars and new visitors alike are greeted as guests of the Mazzone family and treated to the warm ambiance that we like to call The Ritrovo Experience.
