Love this restaurant

We have been there several times, the service was wonderful as always. When I mentioned I forgot to order lemon cello and we had already paid the bill, they gave it to us on the house!

We've eaten here several times during our trips to Sorrento and it's become our 'go-to' place because of the quality of food, service, wine, ambiance and overall dining experience. Although this restaurant is unassuming from the outside, once you walk past the al-fresco diners you'll find a lovely interior that would enhance any special occasion. The wait staff are friendly...

Fillet of sole, nicely cooked & very generous chicken dish. Pudding trolley was fantastic! Wine (12 euros 1/2 bottle) & water (4 euros bottle) on the pricey side compared to other restaurants visited & only one in 6 days where we encountered a cover charge (2 euros per head) so ended up as our most expensive meal but still not...

My favorite pick for restaurant in Sorrento. Great service, great seafood selections and a variety of dishes to choose - includes all the basic Italian dishes like pizza and lasagna, but also more sophisticated dishes. Regardless of what you're looking for, you're bound to find a dish here. Its atmosphere is typical Italian - not fancy, but comfortable place where... More

There are many good restaurants in Sorrento, this was a favourite. Very welcoming service however busy they were. Good food & wine selection. Well worth a visit.

We had pasta and the catch of the day to share, both were perfecnly made! There was Gargiulo olive oil on the table, local production of finest quality. And the waiters seemed to be enjoying the work, they were friendly and very nice. I rate it as very good only because I've been to better places, but I wouldn't agree... More

The food was really delicious and the staff were so friendly and humorous. We really enjoyed the dessert tray and how we get to see and choose on the spot and how after choosing the... More

Our hotel sent us here for dinner. We were only were looking for a light dinner as we had a late lunch. We shared two pizzas among 4 people which was more than enough. The pizza was good but not the best in town. If you are looking for good pizza however I would recommend S.Antonino. The local Aglianico wine... More

These guys are really in the middle of the road. The kind welcoming goes as it should, the service is friendly as it has to be in the tourist area and everything goes in a professional way and as it has practiced for years. The food is also in the middle of the road - a little bit tasteless, no... More
