So it's Sorrento - join in get real. This is a fantastic restaurant in a very busy tourist destination. Setting between buildings, lots of atmosphere, great service, great food. So they want to serve as many covers as possible - it's a business. We had 2 starters 2 mains a lovely bottle of rose and coffee, bill e73.00. If you... More

Fairly standard fair to be honest, large menu and reasonably nice setting. We had a perfectly good meal but certainly unmemorable. Service a little hit and miss.

We were recommended this restaurant by the concierge at our hotel. When we arrived it seemed a little strange that the tables were in the street which was a narrow walkway between buildings, but actually, once we got used to the idea we quite liked watching people wander past with their suitcases or off out for their evening's entertainment. We... More

Terrible experience from start to finish. Was very busy (surely one time tourist visitors) and we were without reservation but they told us to wait whilst they cleared a table which was fine. From here the problems started. My wife speaks excellent Italian and as such always orders in Italian but on hearing a non - native speaker was told... More

If I wanted a longer title it would be 'sit down, get food, give money and get out!!'. A real conveyor belt of tourist turn-over. In all fairness, the food quality was ok to good. Quite tasty and good selection. Sadly, the service really let's this place down. There is a plain clothed overseeing manager who is constantly berating the... More

Such a disappointment. We were recommended this restaurant and had our doubts when we showed up for dinner. Should have gone with our instincts. Dinner was rushed, orders incorrect and delivered at the wrong times. Food was not very good and so overpriced. Don't fall into the trap. So many better restaurants to go to.

Fabulous place to eat for lunch or dinner. Service was wonderful! I recommend the crab ravioli- a party in your mouth! We ended up eating here 4 times during our stay. My other half is a chef so that is praise indeed!

4 years later and the same crooner! Quality, selection of food and service were all very good as they were when we first visited 4 years previously on a special anniversary. comprehensive wine list. Slightly more expensive than the average restaurant, but thought it was worth every penny. Is on the revisit list for next time that we go.

We were so pleased with this restaurant that we ate twice here during our week in Sorrento. Much better food than in the average Sorrento restaurant. On my first visit I had a delicious crab stuffed ravioli with zucchini sauce followed by a generous portion of grilled sea bass with accompanying vegetables. On my second visit I had burrata cheese... More

Visited here in August restaurant was very busy and didn't think the service was that good but the food more than made up for it. We both had 3 courses and a very nice Pinot. Wasn't cheap but defiantly worth the money.
