Had a great beach day at Leonelli's. Staff great and lots of chairs. Spent half day lounging and the rest swimming. They sell fun tshirts and bags that make great souvenirs. Take the lift down for 1 Euro and enjoy a beach day!

Arguably the nicest of the beaches in Sorrento, with dark sand, wonderful decking areas and very nice for swimming, though it's not cheap, and it can be difficult to get just the chairs / loungers you want, due to local 'reservations'. But come here to eat (take the ascensore from the public gardens down to the beach and then it's... More

We went there on Sunday, August, 9. It was overcrowded and we were packed in just like ‘sardines’. It was very uncomfortable: the deckchairs were stacked very close to each other. The waiters were rude and obnoxious and the service was terrible. We paid 17€, apparently on Sunday there is an additional fee! Fortunately, the water was crystal clear and... More

Best experience I've had in a long time! The food was better than most of the restaurants in the area! Aubergine parmigiana! I can still taste it! We reserved chairs everyday and the service is fabulous! Real family run business that makes you feel like family while you are staying here. I am already planning my trip back to Sorrento... More

Sorrento has no beach per say, they have piers, Leonelli has a small sandy beach but their piers are great, well taken care of, wonderful lounge chairs( lettino) and umbrellas. The food at the restaurant was great, spaghetti with zucchini and at 3;30 pm they have le graffe, a wonderful donut, Love the place.

True Italian style ! Hire the sunbeds and umbrellas, dip into the sea, watch the boats go by and enjoy a wonderful lunch ! We had lunch here overlooking the sea everyday, food was very good, and on the Sunday we had a wonderful fish extravaganza in true Italian style ! The service is excellent,we didn't have to remind them... More

Ask to be served by Antonio! Great food with lots of fresh seafood at reasonable prices. It's a lovely location with plenty of sun loungers. Went 4/7 days of our holiday. Although take your own beach towels as theirs for hire at €3 a day are a bit thin and short for the beds. Loved this place!!

the area is very well maintained and all sunloungers are new, clean and well spaced . It is a bit pricey ut keep your receipt, ask the staff to reserve your loungers and you can come and go. food and drink service is good. No litter and generally people are quiet and respectful of others

We shelled out the money, 32Euro for 2 sun beds and an umbrella on the pier section of the resort and it was worth every penny. The attendants moved our umbrella throughout the day to ensure optimal shade or sun depending on our mood. They also served us whatever we wished from the restaurant menu. These fellows were hustling all... More
