Expensive for little and tasteless compared to proper restaurants in Gaeta such as Le Salute, La Locondo and Antico Vico. Il Ritrovo Trattoria was the forth restaurant we tried in Gaeta so we had some to compare with. I won't recommend to go here for seafood - I would much rather go to one of those I've listed above where... More

Small charming restaurant with excellent seafood. Their speciality is Baccela' - all we tried was very good. The fried baccelau comes as small chunks in a paper cone. Perfect for kids. The fish capaccio starter was especially delicious. The large grilled seafood platter was also wonderful.

We had the house speciality Bacca 'La which is a type of white fish. We tried it two different ways and it was good. 15. Euros. The restaurant is small and very clean and light. The house white wine was good.

Just got back to our villa after a lovely meal here. The gnocchi with clams and courgettes was delicious. We ate out several times when were in Rome, but this was the best meal so far on our trip.

Il Ritrovo is located in a lovely street next to the duomo in vecchia Gaeta.You can sit outside and marvel at the church whilst eating local specialities with a hint of Campania more than Lazio.Not surprising as the owner is from Napoli.Food was well presented and I liked the baccala con ceci,seems that baccala(salt cod) is a house speciality.Very good...

Il Ritrovo takes place in Italia nag the lake. If you have a boat you are welcome to come there and eat you also can reach it by car. Il Ritrovo has a very good service and food. And if it is nice weather there is a beautiful view. You can sit inside or outside. For my feeling you should... More
