Great seafood by the sea

This was the best meal we had during a week in Sorrento. For a start, we found it by wandering through the old town, and down steep steps to the Porto Grande. We sat is the wooden 'shack' part of the restaurant, which is right over the sea, so we sat at a table looking down into the water and... read more

True home-style, family cooking. Nothing fancy, nothing too creative - just fresh seafood, large portions, great prices, and family run. When a restaurant is named after a woman and her face is on the menu - and then you see her in the kitchen, you know you are in the right place. This is a must if travelling in Sorrento.

Every Italian visitor who knows the differences between an Osteria, pizzeria, ristorante and trattoria will find a wonderful trattoria here. They are specialized on seafood and the local pasta. I can not expect to the pasta and pizza I want. Mama is cooking and the whole family helps. We had 2 dinner here and the price was very, very good.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food at this restaurant. The seafood was excellent and so was the gnocchi. If you want to sit under the awning it is long tables so you sit with those you do not know. Tourists and locals eat here.

This restaurant was always packed in the evening and when we arrived yet another table was put out. We had eaten at O'Puledrone next door the previous day and had high expectations. Sadly it was not a good meal. The hot starters arrived quickly and almost cold and very soon after (too soon) our main courses arrived - also clearly... More

Seafood meal was decent and nice. We stopped at lunchtime. Waitress was especially informative and took time explaining their selection of fish.

This is a little gem of a restaurant but it does have a certain different style. A number of times we have ordered mains and sides come out when they're cooked, not all together. I don't mind this but I can see some people could. It is much more if a rustic beach dining experience. The fish is what you... More

Brilliant place and great food. I had antipasto di mare and spaghetti alle vongole. Both were exquisite. The service was quick and friendly. And adding to this the charm of Marina Grande, the experience was excellent.
