So. Much. Food.

We went here because not too many other restaurants were open at the end of March but it ended up being so good that we went back a second time. The service is second to none; the perfect balance of humor, service, and leaving us alone. The waiter said he was going to give us the "romantic table... read more

our first meal in town, great service, great food. Need to warn customers that the outside terrace is a smoking zone. Pizza for my daughter was great, fresh fish and veggies was fantastic for me. Local bottle of wine was first rate and under priced. Desert well presented and very good. Would visit again on every trip.

The food was okay, but the for the price I expected a better food and service. It took 10 minutes for a waiter to come and get our order, and the food was actually quite common.

We visited this place twice, more for the price than for the food. The pizza bread is amazing as was the pasta, although the better half did not fancy the risotto as much. The dessert menu is wide ranging of both 'standard' and authetic and fresh Italian choices. Not the fanciest of places but worth a visit

Good value, seems more authentic and we say Italians eating there which was a good sign! Highly recommend it - good value and great fresh food. Service was not the best but they were pretty busy. For the price and location very good.

I have been in this restaurant at 2011, and the food was great. I came back 4 years later and it was excellent as always. Fresh and home made pasta, tasty desserts, great service (Mariano). I will definitely come back on my next time at Sorrento.
