Classic Italian restaurant in classic side street location. In summer, you"ll need to book to be sure of an outside table. They do all the usual Italian dishes but do it very well. Service is friendly and fun. Very good.

One of the best restaurants we ate at in our week in Sorrento. It's right at the start of the narrow shopping street, just off the main square and running parallel to Corso Italia, so easy to miss. Really good staff and some of the best sea food and pizza we had during our stay in Italy. Make sure to... More

That about says it all. Service was excellent, the food even better. I had a seafood risotto one night that was fabulous, and another night I ordered the fish special, which was filleted right at our table. Some members of my family are very picky eaters and they enjoyed the food so much we returned each night, one night eating... More

Nice trattoria with a good wine selection at reasonable prices for Sorrento. Meet and greet staff were great and all waiters attentive and also fun. Tried the Caprese salad and parma ham and melon to start. We had seafood risotto and pasta with tomato and aubergine which was lovely. Well worth a vista.

They had a delicious pizza which was a local half closed one. The stuffing tasted excellent and the food was overall great.

Absolutely wonderful. Wish we had found this on the first night, not the last! Really lovely local food cooked to perfection - the chefs are obviously passionate about local cuisine

The atmosphere is wonderful with a warm and inviting feeling, especially after turning off the bustling main tourist strip. Unfortunately the food was incredibly lacklustre. We shared a mozzarella and ham starter, and in first for us in Italy, the mozzarella was rubbery and ever so slightly sour. The chef making my pizza clearly felt that more cheese was a... More

We had a lovely dinner with friends we made while vacationing in Sorrento. There was outdoor seating, but we dined inside the restaurant. Everyone in our party of seven loved their entrees. We had the pasta dishes one with eggplant and the other with cherry tomatoes. The gnocchi was light and sauce was tasty. The special squid pasta was yummy!... More

We found this family run restaurant by chance, went in because it was busy. We were not disappointed as the service, food and decor were upmarket. We had a fabulous red Fidelis 2010, not served everywhere. While the meal cost a little more, the steak, fish and veal ordered were superb. You can actually get tired of pizza and pasta... More
