Description: 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.

With so many restaurants to choose from we took pot luck on Il Pozzo. Very good - Brochetta was excellent, veal superb and pasta fresh, simple and tasty. Not fancy but good for lunch or dinner.

What a delightful location to sit outside, have a nice bottle of wine, delicious lunch and people watch. We started with a bottle of Ripa Della Ghiande, Falanghina Beneventano and watched the world go by as we waited for our food. We got there just ahead of a large tour group, so our service was prompt. We had the spicy... More

We ate at this restaurant on two occasions on a recent trip to Sorrento. The food was excellent, good portions and well prepared and cooked, with a good range and reasonable pricing.

4 of us ate there on 3 occasions. The food was extremely good and staff attentive, but not over the top. Each time we ate outside in a very pleasant atmosphere. This restaurant is used by local people as well, which is always a good sign. Would not hesitate to recommend, based on our experience.

Always a warm welcome and the food is well cooked from good ingredients. We only had to wait at most 20 minutes for a hot freshly cooked meal to arrive with a flourish, even at busy times. Never hurried out of the restaurant after we had finished our meal and staff always on hand to advise regarding the menu. Would... More

This was one of our favorites a few years back. So we stopped for lunch. The service is very average.....if not lacking. I ordered an arugula salad with tomatoes and the carbonara pasta. The salad is excellent. The carbonara was fresh but lacked some flavor. Finally got some cheese toward the end and was much better. My husbands fresh marinara... More
