This restaurant has a good location over looking the port but I would have to say this it's only good attribute. The staff were somewhat friendly but it seemed very forced. The food was fine but there is much better in the area. The restaurant offered free transfer service to your hotel which is good but not good when it... More

We stayed at B&B very close to Ruccio so we went several times during our stay in h. Every visit was warm and welcoming like we were family. Sonny was our server and he made sure our food and service was perfect. I highly recommend Ruccios!

They attract customer making use of Tripadvisor certificate but the service is poor. Also, nothing we tasted was delicious. It costs too much for those meals and the service. They should also clean spiderwebs off the ceiling.

Tasty food and an excellent location right on the harbour. Lovely food, worth the trip down 129 steps to get to it. Baby octopus was lovely.

This place was steps from our B&B and we ate here a couple of times. They are always soliciting customers as you walk by. The waiters were very attentive and the view of the harbour is right there. Some of the tables are at the waters edge. The food was good we went for lunch so we ate light we... More

We have been going to this retaurant for many years. Both the quality of the food and the service are outstanding and I would recommend to anybody. We were looked after especially well this year by Sonny, Mario, Anello and Gaetand who served us fabulous food and great wine. The courtesy car back to our hotel was most welcome too.

We highly recommend this restaurant. The food is excellent, fantastic atmosphere combined with amazing views of the harbour and coast. Couldn't ask more in terms of service (particularly Sonny). Highly recommended!

We visited here twice to eat and a few times for drinks, when we visited Sorrento for our honeymoon. The food was great, waiters very friendly especially Sonny & Mario and the setting was perfect, watching the boats coming and going and hearing the sounds of the sea! If you are visiting Sorrento and looking for a place to eat... More

Having been there many times over the passed 5/6 years we have made a great friendship and it would be a shame to miss out on the good food and atmosphere down by the water. Sonny is the man you want to see, ask for him when you go and it will transform the evening for you!
