Not a sleeping lion!

Very busy and buzzy. Trip advisor reviews led me here; great advice to follow. Down a back street with pictures of food outside. Definitely not a place I'd usually go! However the service was very attentive and the food plentiful and cooked extremely well. Amazing calamaretti. Great pasta. Lovely... read more

traveling with another couple and stopped by for lunch, it was their anniversary so I quietly let the server know...after a tremendous lunch of calamari, pizza and capresse salad they outdid themselves with complimentary desert and Limoncello (pardon my spelling)...the topper was the bill....much less than we expected...

we were recommended to this restaurant and we were not let down in any way. Close by the station there is nothing special to look at as you approach. You can sit outside or inside. We chose to sit inside and everything about it was typically Italian. The owner who is really friendly with a brilliant sense of humour watches... More

Stopped here for dinner based on the recommendation on trip advisor. Unfortunately Our experience was less than satisfactory; actually a disaster. We ordered our salad, pasta, and meat dish looking forward to a fabulous meal. After quite some time the waiter brought out both the salad and pasta dishes together, as the initial salad delivery to the table was obviously... More

This is a must if you are in Sorrento. The ravioli is excellent, prices very reasonable. Ask the waiter to recommend your wine.

We ate here twice. The first dinner was at 6 pm and both food and service were excellent. The second time, they were so busy that one entree came before appetizers, then followed by my wife's entree. So my main course was cold and they paid little attention to us. Just bad timing perhaps. Our fault for going twice to... More

Just off the main drag, but seemed a popular place. The food was decent, as was the service. Fairly standard local cooking but I found the standard pretty high everywhere I went so this is no bad thing. Worth a visit!
