Outstanding Service

It was our first night in Sorrento on our Honeymoon. We went here because close and excellent ambiance. The service was spectacular as was the desert. The main course was very good which is why I rated this restaurant as a 4 star. I have seen previous reviews and noted comments low on service, but... read more

Our hotel recommended this place to us & we were so glad they did! From the moment we walked in, we were pampered by the staff. The food was outstanding, fresh & homemade. I had the stuffed anchovies, while my husband & son both had pasta dishes. The dessert was great & the limoncello was to die for! It was... More

Food was ok but nothing special. What made this restaurant stand out for us, was the unpleasant staff. The waitor who took our orders actually frowned upon my request of removing cheese from the pizza, and questioned our request for a bread basked (one we were even prepared to pay for) with the argument that

Written recommendation by an important shop-owner did no good. A busy rainy Sunday evening. Given a drafty table by door. Brusque captain tried to push the lobster. Perfunctory waiters. Hurried service. Very middlin' courses. Smarmy condescending guitarist. Go elsewhere.

Excellent food, even by Italian standards! However, sadly we found the place a little pretentious and the service somewhat snooty which made us feel uncomfortable. It's also a little on the pricey side.

Eat here on our first night. Atmosphere was good and had a local guitarist playing to tables. Yo be fair the food was pretty average.

We went here specifically for pizza - we were waiting to find the perfect pizza - we could see the stone oven when we looked through the kitchen window. We were not disappointed! I had the 4 Stagione (the four seasons); 1/4 pork sausage, 1/4 ham, 1/4 roasted aubergine (the best 1/4!) and 1/4 mushroom and my boyfriend had the... More

We arrived at 7.00 pm and had been served a starter, main, desert and coffee by 8.00! Is that attentive or just rude? Rude definitely. I was not given the time to digest one course before the next was set in front of me. They were clearly trying to get me served and out of the restaurant so that they... More

Perhaps we stumbled upon a bad day, or ordered the wrong things from the huge menu. First we ordered a risotto, which was by far the worst I ever had, and some black spaghetti, which was dry and tasteless. We retuened these dishes and then ordered crab filled ravioli, which were seved in a horrible tasting suace, and a lasagna,... More

We ate here 2 nights during a 7 night stay in Sorrento. The first time I had a Pizza and Yvonne had Pasta with Bolognese sauce, both were very good. The bread served when we sat down was nice so were the 2 half bottles of house wine (red and white). The second time we both had Pizzas which were... More
