group meal for 8 of us and service was quick. some meals were fine others perhaps more average. Not fine dining, but good atmosphere, no frills. Pizza thin and crispy, Chateaubriand was enormous. Limoncello at the end of the meal was appreciated by most of the group!

Ate here on our 1st night in Sorrento. Ordered fried squid, what we got was a plate of batter!. Then we ordered the 3 tasting pasta dishes which when they arrived looked amazing! They turned out to be absolutely tasteless and as our plates were cold the pasta quickly became cold also. Some of the staff weren't too good either.... More

After trying one or two others around our hotel we chanced upon Il Leone Rosso and what a joy - busy, warm and very welcoming - decided to go there again and we were not disappointed.

We ate here our first night, as recommended by our hotel. We had the seafood antipasti, it looked amazing, but was quite average in taste - not sure how that is even possible with the fried fish. For the main course I was craving meat, so the waiter suggested a beef dish with a cheese and almond sauce. It was... More

We were just walking and saw this place off of the main streets. It was crowded inside but there was outside seating with a heat lamp so it was perfect. We ordered a bottle of wine, cheese plate and entrees. The cheese plate and bread was yummy. Our entrees were good but not excellent. Service was good as well.

We were recommended this restaurant by our friends, so we visited, expecting great things as our friends spoke highly of the restaurant. We chose to dine around 5pm on a sunday, as we didn't want a late night due to the weather being very bad. The restaurant was very quiet with only 1 other couple and a single diner in... More

This place was suggested by our hotel. The food was adequate but the service was very indifferent. This lukewarm welcome left us with a negative image.

This place was recommended to us by two locals and the tripadvisor reviews were satisfactory. We were looking forward to trying a local spot for authentic italian food during our limited time in sorrento. This place didnt quite meet the hype for us. I should start off noting that the service was FANTASTIC. Our server was so sweet, kind, and... More

We ate here our first night in Italy. Because we were eating dinner around 5pm, there was almost no one else in the restaurant. Mariano was our wonderful waiter and a great way to be introduced to authentic Italian food & people! Our food was so delicious. After I finished my meal, I started eating my husbands because every bit... More

Had a nice dinner on a busy Friday night (got crowded quickly) but they worked hard to fit us in. Enjoyed the food which was excellent. We had both pasta and pizza as well as an excellent calamari appetizer. House wine was good and service was good considering they were completely full. A good value. Worth returning on a revisit...
