Good Food, Service Questionable

The food is really very good. And, to be honest we ate lunch when they had to deal with 2 tour groups (more than 50 people) so it was hectic. The waiter seemed to be irritated with us. I hope he was just having 'one of those days' as we all have now and then. It I had to deal... read more

The wait staff was extremely nice and Mariano was the best! The food is excellent Classic Italian and very reasonably priced. Loved it so much we ended up going back a second night.

Reading the reviews I feel as if I visited a different restaurant, the service and food were absolutely awful. Food cold and was not edible it cost a lot of money and staff did not even ask why we had not touched it, would not recommend this to anyone.

Stumbled by this one by mistake, late at night when not much was open. Nice service, and surprisingly good food. The caprese salad was very good and the special pizza we got which was half pizza/half calzone was amazing! Don't expect much, simple but good local food.

This place was recommended to us by a friend. As it near to the station it is often our first stop when we arrive in Sorrento, a Margerita pizza fresh from the wood fuelled oven is just the job. The service is friendly and quick and the food is delicious and good value. Pasta dishes, pizza, risotto all excellent

We ate at this restaurant twice while in Sorrento. The food was very good, prices were very reasonable, and the service was outstanding. The waiters were very attentive to our wishes.

This restaurant has friendly and fast service, low prices, but most importantly some of the best food in Italy! The calzones and pizzas are the best things to order; you can even see them being made in an old-fashioned brick oven. This restaurant has great, good quality Italian food that I most definitely recommend.

This cracking restaurant was recommended by our hotel manageress. After sampling the most fabulous pizza (which is baked in a traditional pizza oven) and the best carbonara I'd had anywhere, we, as a family of two adults and two teens proceeded to eat there for four out of four nights. The menu is extensive, food tasty and hot, service excellent... More
