I have read some pretty awful reviews of this restaurant but am glad we ignored them. We went twice. The first time we had the sardines for 3 euros. This was a small portion but enough for me, and please, it's only 3 euros. It was a real experience watching La signora (Rosa) rounding people up to eat at her... More

This restaurant hooked us twice - by offering fresh sardines (which I like with tomato and basil) and by suggesting that they had an association with Jamie Oliver. However, I think the Jamie Oliver who may have eaten there is the diesel mechanic from Warnambool, not the slightly more well known international chef. Situated in one of the prettiest locations...

Don't be fooled by the sign...I seriously doubt Jamie Oliver ate here because the food is standard OVER PRICED sandwiches served by a group of sisters who like to bad mouth their neighbors. Our bill for 5 sandwiches and drinks was over 100 euros...and that was for no wine, just soft drinks and tea. Avoid this place and don't get... More

The sign outside says 'Friends of Jamie Oliver'. I don't doubt it for a minute. It's impossible to walk past The Sisters without one of the sisters grabbing you and dragging you into her restaurant. No doubt Jamie Oliver once tired to walk past and failed. The food is of an average to good quality, wholesome Italian food. Fantastic sized... More

I love the grand Marinara. I love the people and really don't gain any pleasure in giving bad reviews. But...there is a reason that it is number 201 from 211 restaurants on tripadvisor. I can honestly say that this is one of the worst places I have eaten in. It has a truly beautiful setting but the food was just... More

A fantastic experience - lunch at 5 sisters! What do you expect if the boards say 'sardines 3 euros'. I can't believe that there are so many bad reviews! This is a great location - rustic and quaint. No nonsense tables overlooking the grande marina. We had simple food, lots of bread, mozzarella, tomatoes, cannelloni, lasagne and of course sardines... More

we came here for a drink and sat overlooking the bay and the sea sipping vino and playing board games just watching the world go by. Great location and run by five brazillian sisters all have character and the charm to make you stop for a well deserved drink after walking down hundreds of steps to the fishing village.

My boyfriend said that the spaghetti vongole was one of the best meals he has ever had! I had cannelloni and I enjoyed that too. Make sure you check your bill at the end as the lady just told us how much it was and it did seem more than we thought we would pay but as we had enjoyed... More

The sisters are very aggressive, the food is very expensive, there are other much better places to eat in Marina Grande. It's not worth it. DON'T GO!

The title of this review says it all really. Worst food we ate in a week in Sorrento. The sardines were more the size of whitebait and the sauce on my "home made" gnocchi resembled tinned tomato soup.
