Felt like home!

When we travel, we always like to find those small, friendly restaurants where the atmosphere is comfortable, the food is good and the people there are genuine in their desire that we enjoy the evening. Using that as the test, this rates a ten out of ten. First, it is a little tricky even to find... read more

Food was good, not the greatest but what made this visit enjoyable was the customer service which can be sorely lacking in many Italian eateries. Also the espresso is absolutely fantastic!

Had a very pleasing meal. Opted for prawns and my husband had calamari which were both excellent. Both tasted very fresh and were nicely presented. Live music was lovely and they very much tried to get the diners involved - overall a very good dining experience!

Visited here during our honeymoon after consulting TA for good Sorrento restaurants, we were staying half board and wanted to make sure when we did eat out it wasn't a disappointment. We arrived having not booked and were quickly shown to a table albeit right next to the entrance but hey thats what you book for, anyway straight away we... More

Peppe, the owner is so personable. He will come to your table and serenade you. What a voice! The food is amazing. Peppe could not do enough for me with my gluten free diet. Tina, our waitress was outstanding, a lovely person. My husband and I went back to dine here a few days later because we absolutely enjoyed ourselves... More

This is the place to go for the warm and passionate welcome you are expecting from a restaurant in Italy. Nearly everywhere else we went didn't have the feel that we expected. Most places were cold and business-like. Tavernallegra on the other hand is hosted by a charismatic and passionate Peppe, who sings and tells stories, most of which have... More

Ate here last night. Hard to criticise the place really. Live music and a gentle party atmosphere. Was not overly impressed by the food. My wife had "Rissoto" which was rice in tomato sauce and I had the "Mixed Fish in Sauces" which turned out to be one fresh mackerel although tasty expected more for 24€.All in all a pleasant...

Pre wedding dinner for 37 adults and kids. Vegetarians and coeliacs (gluten free) catered for. We started at 7pm and finished at 11pm - singing and playing instruments all the way ! The owner Pepe and his staff all enjoyed performing. It was Pepe's 80th birthday and we all sang him happy birthday. I would definitely recommend Tavernallegra and also... More

My children would have chosen to eat here every night - that's how much they loved Tavernallegra! The food was very, very good, but the staff really made the evening. They were extremely friendly and made a real fuss of our three children, and so we felt incredibly welcome. There was lots of singing and laughing, and at the end... More
