This restaurant was so fantastic that we ate here twice during our 4 day stay in Sorento. The service was excellent and having transportation from our hotel to the restaurant was really convenient!

Excellent service and great food!! Also, the courtesy transportation. My fiance and I ate there our first night in Sorrento. He was wowed by the linguine and shrimp in cuttlefish ink. our waiter Raphael's passion about food and pleasing guests is evident in his demeanor. I had the seafood risotto which was very good. We went with Raphael's dessert suggestion... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for our last night in Italy. We were very excited to have one last fabulous meal in Sorrento. It all started out so well. The waiter was very attentive, suggested a beautiful bottle of wine, brought out a plate of appetizers on the house. All seemed good. We started with a seafood rissoto that was... More

I can't say that I was blown away, but I didn't leave feeling unfulfilled. The vegetable antipast was excellent. The lemon risotto wasn't to my liking, but then the spaghetti a la vongole and pasta with mushrooms and shrimps were very good. Our main course consisted of sea bass and roast potatoes. Again it was fairly solid. I would go... More

We ate here on the first night of our trip to Sorrento. It was recommended by our hotel very enthusiastically (far too enthusiastically on hindsight). The food was disappointing - slimy and vinegary octopus salad, then tasteless non-descript white fish. The spaghetti vongole was ok and my son's steak was ok. But we were charged top prices and I usually... More

I do not ever have steak in a restaurant, as I always end up being boring and comparing to what I could do on my own outdoor kitchen. But, I was hungry and I will never regret the decision to order the fillet steak. It just melted, was cooked exactly as requested, And was served with the most delicious sauce... More

We went here recently with several friends. It was very disappointing. We ordered a variety of fish plates from the very simplest to the most ambitious, all were judged lacking in taste. Not even the salt encrusted white fish could rate a positive review. The fish seemed fresh enough but the preparation was unimaginative and added nothing to the local... More

Dear Guest Thank you for being our customer and we regret that it has not enjoyed our kitchen. Explaining the cuisine and typical Mediterranean cuisine is simple to enhance the flavor. Clearly need to know what flavors you are looking for in the dish. If you find mundane our preparations is a purely subjective assessment in many extol our preparations.... More

Excellent seafood restaurant with great fresh fish selection. The Dorado in Sea Salt was great. We came back twice during our stay in Sorrento.

This place was recommended by the apartment we were staying in. They have a nice menu, amazing staff. And prices are reasonable too. There's a taxi service to and from your accomodation. Note: they close daily between 4.15 and 7pm. Will definitely go again!!
