Consisently good food, reasonable prices and air conditioning

All around very nice atmosphere, great food and reasonable prices. We have eaten here on prior trips and the food is consistently very good. I would recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Sorrento.

Lovely fresh food and fabulous service.....so good in fact we went back several times. Whether it be pizza or beautifully prepared fresh fish - all was excellent.

The restaurant looks attractive with their tables in a small street, but the service was absolutely not friendly. At our table we received the menu card and started looking to make our choice. In the mean time the waiter was bringing the knives and forks.My wive had not noticed him, and instead of friendly asking he just pulled the menu... More

Not recommended. I went last night and the waitors were bad tempered, the wine recommended wasnt good. I ordered a t-bone steak charged by weight. There was enough to feed 3 people so felt totally ripped off. The potatoes were greasy and undercooked. One to avoid.

We came here for lunch one day and loved it, jazz playing in the background air con on. Came back twice more after that. Really good food, excellent atmosphere (we only ate inside) and welcoming, friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. The food was always excellent and we found it good value for money every time. A real find.

We enjoyed our meal, but it really wasn't anything special, and it was a little pricey for what you got. We were told that it was a non-touristy place in the middle of a touristy district, I would agree with that but probably won't rush back. I was most annoyed that I was talked into the fish special without being... More

Ate here when we visited 2 years ago and absolutely loved it. It was good this time around but won't be going back again as the food is not worth the prices. The food is good quality but a little high priced when compared to other restaurants in Sorrento serving much better food at about the same price, e.g 'Albate'... More

We had a terrible experience in this restaurant ordering the second dish "Scalopini", they served pork fillet with a watery lemon sauce instead of red meat. Also the chicken with ham and mushrooms second plate was a bad surprise: 2 pieces of chicken in a red sauce nothing special with 2 pieces of small champignons and no ham. There are... More

We decided to eat there because it looked quite buzzy and had a bit of atmosphere. The food was nice but it took about 45 minutes to get served. The waiters had no time for any conversation and barely made eye contact while taking the order. There are better places to eat but we dont regret going. Try and sit... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Sorrento. The waiters can't do enough for you, so friendly and informative about the food and wine.The decor inside is stylish with marketry pictures, which is locally done.
