Nice little hide away

It is a movie scenery restaurant/pizzeria, a bit away from the busy street. Well run and with such charming staff that it was hard not to find something good to eat. People there know how to do what they do and believe me it is not half touristy as most of the places around. The prices are what they are... More

We ate here one Saturday night and was one of our best meals. I had lasagne and my boyfriend had the carbonara, the carbonara was the best we'd had so far in Sorrento, it was really creamy and tasty. The lasagne was rich with a really good ragu, it was a little bit dry but the delicious mince made up... More

We found this restaurant about 4 years ago, enjoyed a lovely meal, and the side salad was really nice. I have tried to copy at home, but the lettuces here aren't the same. Went here last year, and again last month on our yearly holiday to Sorrento. The restaurant hasn't a huge choice, but what we do have is excellent.... More

Enjoyed fabulous food and service at La Lanterna. Fresh fish expertly cooked and service. Extensive wine collection and menu including daily specials. Will definitely be returning her for another meal during our stay in Sorrento

We loved our wood fired pizza in this restaurant in the heart of Sorrento. It was the best pizza we had had on our holiday and big enough to share for two for lunch. The only disappointment was being recommended a frascati instead of our usual house wine choice which was the "same price". It turned out to be double... More

Stopped here for lunch whilst shopping in Sorrento. Service was exceptionally good as was the food. It was reasonably priced and the service was quick. You could sit outside but we sat inside in air conditioned comfort as it was a very hot day. Enjoyed our lunch and would definitely recommend this place as a great place to eat.

No atmosphere, surly staff, the food has been described as microwave meal and I wouldn't disagree The only positive was some minor celebrity you tube blogging family that my daughter recognised - gave us a talking point!!
