Off the main street. Super place. Low cost but great pizzas and nice people. We have been a couple of crimes and will go again.

I highly recommend this restaurant. We ate here on August 14 for lunch. Having lived in Italy for two years, I can vouch for the authenticity of the food here, and the wonderful atmosphere. All of our meals were fabulous. Highly recommend the Carbonara and the Caprese salad. All our kids loved it as well.

We ate here on august 21. We waited a bit but then were seated outside, as desired. It took a while to be given menus, then to get our orders , then to get oyr food. Our frustration was appeased by the quality of the food.....tasty and fresh. When the bill came we felt everything was very reasonably priced.....we were... More

The restaurant was very busy with customers eating inside and outside. It was packed with locals because Naples were playing Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. Despite the busy, excitable atmosphere, the staff were very attentive and efficient. We shared a mixed green salad. Superb bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar completed the enjoyment. Shelagh had a fried fresh fish... More

Recommended to us by an Italian . Situated diagonally opposite the entrance to sorrento station. Near translates as The Red Lion. Small restaurant with seating outside under a canopy or inside in the air conditioned restaurant. Full of locals which is always the best recommendation you can have. The pasta is freshly made by the restaurant and is amazing. Well... More

We had lunch here during our trip to Amalfi & Positano for our 25th anniversary. The food was great from start to finish, and the hospitality and service were fantastic- grazie mille, Mariano! Highly recommended!

After this place was recommended to us by several locals, we knew we had to give it a try. We ate here for lunch, and really enjoyed our meal. Our waiter was humorous and helpful, and we found the menu to have plenty of options. My gnocchi was not the best I've had, but everyone else in our party of... More

Bad experience! This restaurant was very average. We tried a pasta and a pizza and both were big disappointments. The mushroom and prosciutto pizza had frozen mushrooms and poor quality ham. The pasta didn't have most of the ingredients listed on the menu. The wine was undrinkable. To top it off the waiters completely ignored us every time we tried... More
