A great busy little spot

Called in to this little gem on a chance and they fitted us in. A very busy local restaurant, packed to the gunnels. Food was above average with a good wine selection, both moderately priced

We discovered this fantastic restaurant on our second to last evening. The food the atmosphere and staff were all superb. The next time we visit Sorrento we will definitely visit again. Thank you for a very memorable evening.

We have dined several times in the last couple of yers. We always take friends visiting Ital here for a great meal. Prices are reasonable and staff is very friendly. Love their fried calamari and the broth with fine pasta. Right in the center of town. Bob & Roseann DeSpirito

Having stayed in Sorrento for several days we decided to visit this restaurant because it looks lovely out front and the front host was very polite and inviting and arrange the table for us outside which we did not think would be possible.

Great value for money. 14 oz fillet steak for €20! Would cost £50 + in the UK. Portion sizes a little on the large size, but the value makes it great!

In the heart of the hustle bustle this is a restaurant with the same staff over many years and the kitchen really is good. You get great traditional food with slick service and superb atmosphere, year in year our when in Sorrento have a meal here its great.
