My wife and I visited Sorrento in May and we had several meals at an excellent restaurant named Il Pozzo (The Well). We tried many of their pastas, risottos and pizzas and they were all wonderful. I had pasta with seafood more than once and it was excellent. I also had their risotto with mushrooms and it was delicious.Their house red wine is very good. It is fruity, easy to drink and very moderately priced. And for white wine, we chose Falanghina from the wine list. Falanghina is a local white wine that is fruity with a subtle crispness.Finally, I need to say a few words about the staff. They were always very helpful and made me feel completely comfortable. They were wonderful guys.Il Pozzo is located on via Tasso, down from the cathedral, at the intersection with via dell'Accademia.

Came here for lunch and was unserwhelmed. The place was heaving as it had been hit by a cruise party and maybe that affected the quality if the food. The spagetting in bolognose sauce was so overseasoned wuth salt my wife couldnt eat it and my own food was passable . Maybe better when less crowded but wint return.

Walked past earlier in the day and the place felt nice so we came back for dinner that night. Food was decent but nothing exceptional - we had pizza and pasta, however staff were pretty unhelpful and kept trying to remove our plates before we were done to make way for new customers. The attitude for not ordering three courses... More

We found this restaurant by luck when walking thru the area. It turned out to be a wonderful dinner with great food. The starters was really good and the service was quite quick. One of the main dishes (risotto) was a bit salty but they arranged with a new one within 10 minutes in a really professor way. The owner... More

We were wandering the streets of Sorrento when we decided to try il pozzo for dinner. We started with a margherita pizza and it was excellent choice. It had a thin crust and a delicious sweet sauce with just enough fresh basil and tasty mozzarella. We then had a tasty eggplant parmigiano. The wine by the glass was lackluster but... More

Nice restaurant. The cost of the plates is too high in relation to the quality delivered . The menu is good and can satisfy all kind of clients . My plate was salty and we I make the waiter aware of the problem nothing was suggested from his side. House wine no good, choose from the middle range.

Grilled seafood was fantastic! Lemon tagliolini was the best!! Close to Grand Hotel La Favorita where we were staying, so we made a point of eating dinner twice at Il Pozzo, and it was the right decision.

Decided to stop here for a quick pizza on our way past. We decided to sit inside however the restaurant smelt strange, almost like gone off cheese, and we immediately regretted it. We asked for some green olives with our order, however when our pizza came and we asked about the olives they said they had ran out. Had to... More

Ordered glass of champagne/Spumante, but were given glass of white wine. Sent it back as was warm and obviously not a bubbly. Waiter returned with what appeared original glass but with sparkling mineral water added! Refused to drink it and waiter refused to take it away. Then main course came and had bottle of cab sav red wine which was... More

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant while we were on holiday the beginning of June. We had a lovely meal. The service was also great even though they had a party of 20 in at the same time. My boyfriend had pasta and I had a chicken dish, and my boyfriend had profiteroles for dessert. Would definately recommend... More
