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.

Came here because we ate here two years ago and had the most fantastic caprese salad, but we disappointed. It was still good but not fantastic and didn't make up for some of the other short comings. The service isn't very good. The waiters aren't engaging and appear to be more interesting in chatting to each other. The location isn't... More

Had quite a nice meal here and would give 31/2 stars.... GOOD because in was above average for the price. I had a Mussel and clam pasta which was very tasty without being fantastic (see pic) Nice location off the main drags but the alfresco tables for two outside are very close to each other, so not great if you...

Food was very good as was the service. Only limited seating outside so you have to get there at the right time if you want to eat al fresco. Reasonably priced.

Would give 3.5 if I could, we felt it was slightly above average for a chilled out lunch. In the middle of a very hot July, we had a couple of Cokes, a margherita pizza, a green salad and a calzone. The bill came to less than €30 and the people-watching was good, food was nice and simple, service laid-back.... More

Food was fine after it eventually arrived 2 hours after our arrival I did chased on numerous occasions and when it did come no apology. I had the veal and it had obviously been sitting waiting to be served as it had a skin on top.

We ha a light lunch here after a morning at the beach and lived the food. The service wasn't great however on holidays you shouldn't be in a hurry anyway so we weren't too fussed.

Having tried some of the more expensive restaurants in Sorrento, we stumbled across I'll Pozzo and had a very nice 2 course meal with a bottle of wine for just over €50.

Food was fine, but nothing special. We had caprese salad and one pizza - whitch is enough for 2 persons. Service was excellent, so nothing to complain about.

My hubby and I stopped here for a late lunch the other day and thought the food and value was great. We shared a caprese salad and a pizza and was more than enough for the both of us! Thoroughly enjoyed!
