Stumbled upon this place, and the owner waved us in. Well, we're hungry, so let's go in. So happy we did. The children were entertained by the owners, who were super kid friendly.

A perfect romantic dinner. We basically had the place to ourselves during the quiet time of the year and Giuseppe made us feel like we were part of his family. The food was delicious as we took all of his recommendations and he did not disappoint. During the meal the chef came out and gave us a private concert on... More

Me and my girlfriend went to Tavernallegra following a recommendation from a friend. We chose a strikingly hot July evening and after a hunt found the restaurant tucked away in an alleyway with no windows... This mattered not, the restaurant was cool enough. The menu was an authentic selection of Italian dishes and the three different courses we ordered were... More

Tucked away off of a main street, the food was fantastic and fresh! To complement the meal, the service from top to bottom was amazing and welcoming! Add to this, several vocal performances from the proprietor and his colleagues made it an amazing overall experience. Picture a group of 60+ year olds running the place and having the time of...

I honestly don't know how you could rate the food or experience less than 5 stars. Peppe greeted us at the door and went through the recommended catch of the day. We started with the fried anchovy with fresh Sorrento lemon. It was amazing. For our main course my wife had the grilled fresh fish and I had the lobster... More

Where to start!? We happened on Tavernallegra by chance after the restaurant we had planned to go to was closed and boy are we glad that we walked in. The owner, Pepe, greeted us and told us about the fresh catch of the day before seating us. We did a true Italian dinner that night with courses and we were... More

We stumbled across Tavernallegra purely by chance. Having never visited Sorrento before, we'd done a bit of window shopping of various restaurants and wandered around the centre before making a decision. The high sloped ceilings, rosy lighting , and possibly the fact that we had the place all to our selves suited us perfectly so we decided to give it... More

Just visited the Tavernallegra with a group of friends for my wife's 50th birthday. The food is good simple Italian food prepared well and with a passion for local produce But what really makes this such special restaurant has got to be the owners and the staff. Great to see people with such a passion for their trade Really made... More

I went to this restaurant last Thursday whilst me and my family were holidaying in Sorrento. We found it on tripadvisor and it certainly proved popular as the first night we tried to go it was fully booked. We would recommend booking before you go. It is a very friendly, amicable restaurant with a warm atmosphere. I think it may... More

Firstly the person who wrote the last terrible review must be incredibly boring. This restaurant has a great atmosphere and the host is a larger than life, typically italian gentleman with a great sense of humour. The staff were great. The food is not Michelin star standard but it is decent home cooking and I certainly wouldn't complain, anything that... More
