Excellent find, great pizza great value

This place had been recommended by friends; the pizzas are amazing, good value and they let you take your time. We had a large italian group when we visited and the atmosphere was quite loud and festive - it just added to the whole experience! Would come again if in Sorrento.

Besides the restaurant being charming, the food is great. My husband said it had one of the best pizzas he had in Italy. I have celiac disease,and they had gluten free pasta and bread. The sauce on the pasta was wonderful. We ate there twice during our stay in Sorrento, once for lunch and once for dinner.

Sitting outside under the umbrellas was divine. Service was fast, food is pricey, but you ARE in Sorrento after all. We had the vegetarian pizza, house wine and a salad. The sauce on the pizza was very good and the server told us to order one small which was perfect for the two of us, thank you! The meal was... More

We were in Sorrento for two nights, one of which was our 25 th wedding anniversary. We asked a local shopkeeper to recommend a good restaurant and were told La Basilica. Being mid- week and the middle of winter, it wasn't very busy. We were waited on by very attentive wait staff who kindly did their best to understand our... More

We had lunch there on our last day in Sorrento. Welcoming staff, spacious restaurant, a very varied menu, with a free tasty pasta starter. Good main course followed by Tiramisu. The large wall paintings were rather tasteless - mainly of Vesuvius - too colourful and unrealistic.

Visiting this restaurant for dinner with my family, we were quite disappointed. The food was okay-average. There was a guitarist serenading with old-fashioned, cheesy Italian songs such as "that's amore" who was overbearing. The service was good, however the price was outrageous, about double what we would usually pay for our family dinner in Italy, even in tourist spots such... More

Many Italian restaurants close in the afternoon between 2 and 7. (Italians tend to eat later than Americans.) La Basilica remains open all afternoon and the food was simply delicious! It is easy to find, just a block off the main square, Piazza Tasso. After traveling overnight from the States, we wanted an early dinner that would not be too... More

We liked it - the food was good, the staff were helpful and spoke English well. It was fun to experience a big holiday meal as a cultural outsider.

Great food and service! Friendly staff and one of the best pizzas we had in Italy. I especially appreciated they did not include cover charge - the only place with no cover charge during my 9 day stay in Italy. Great food, service and price - what else could anyone ask for?
