Been going here for the last few years on our annual trip to Sorrento! One of my family's favourite places to have pizza we normally sit outside which has a nice feel to it. Will be going back next time I'm in Sorrento.

Reasons for the rating: - The food quality is 2 1/2 to 3 -- it's on-par with a typical Italian restaurant you'll find in Manhattan, and below the average local restaurant in Italy. The tomato soup we ordered tastes like canned food, and the ravioli is nothing special. Seafood risotto lacks the texture and tastes like some half-cooked rice simmering... More

We ate two meals here during our stay in Sorrento - in fact we were staying in Via San Cesareo itself so it was hardly more than a few steps away! The first time we had just arrived, unpacked and wandered out to explore the area on our doorstep, so to speak, so came across it very quickly. We hadn't... More

Lovely setting but the food was disappointing. Having said that I had the special of day which was ravioli stuffed with crab. I was asked if I wanted to have this as a starter or a main and I opted for the starter. Good job I did as when the bill came they had charged me 18 Euros for it!... More

Ate here on our first and last night of our holiday. It's tucked in an alleyway in the heart of Sorrento. Looks very romantic and the waiters were very friendly. The quality of food was good although my escalope with gorgonzola seemed a little on the mean side. My companions had sea bass and the seafood stew, both of which... More

Our best pizza experience in Italy. The wait staff was friendly and the fig dessert was terrific! Bonissimo!

Highly recommend this lovely little restaurant tucked away in the Old Town. Service, food and wine are all excellent and reasonably priced (although the extensive wine list does go up to 700 euro bottles!). Will definitely return when next in Sorrento.

Came here twice during our holiday - once for lunch, once for dinner. Really nice location - to be out on the street whilst it's still warm. Food is excellent, had good wine recommendations. Only problem was that we had trouble fitting all our wine, water and food on the table! Will look forward to a return visit :)

This was our most visited restaurant in Sorrento. With seating in and outside the restaurant offers the perfect location in the historic district of Sorrento. We tried pasta,pizza,meat and fish dishes,all very nice at reasonable prices. We especially loved the service,staff are so friendly and efficient. We can recommend this restaurant.
