" Nice choices, open later in the evening"

This was our first taste of Gelato in Italy. I did like that they have so many many flavors. It is pretty hard to decide. Well, here is my take. I am an ice cream connoisseur. Any one who knows me, they know that very much. I am particular about ice cream, have had many brands, everywhere... read more

Visited this restaurant 3 times in the past week. My partner and I have tried different meals each time. Every dish is done to a consistently high standard. Nowhere else compares. Plenty of choice. Would highly recommend.

I am a pizza fan. I don't boast of having tried pizza all over the world but during my recent trip to Italy, I went to Sorrento and had the "Aum Aum" pizza at Bougainvillea. It was delicious! It is not a fancy restaurant, with affordable prices and good and fast service.

Me and my mum signed up to do a pizza making class here through our hotel. It was amazing! The lovely Theresa held the class and was so enthusiatic and Antonio is the great pizziolo who showed us the best techniques. There were 5 of us and it was completely hands-on practice plus we got great tips about how to... More

We all ordered the wood-fired pizza...most had the margharita, a specialty, but I had mine topped with grilled veggies...best pizza I have ever eaten. There is also a gelato bar in the front of this restaurant that has many, many selections. On another day I stopped by for a hazelnut gelato that was out of this world. The restaurant is... More

Only ate here once, on our last day in Sorrento, but the food that my wife and I had was very good - dessert choice is unbelievable - not a small list but a complete book. The place is clean and friendly staff provide very good service.

What a great, friendly little place! Something for everyone here - nice pizza by the slice, wine and beer, great ice cream and desserts, a place for more formal dining in the back. The food was great, but all the staff were even better - so friendly and helpful! We came back several times because it was fast, relaxed, cheap,... More

We went twice but only for ice cream, about a hundred flavours and the price started at 2 euro for 2 scoops. It did meals as well if you wanted.

Called in for some hot food. Price ok. Service was curt but efficient. Scored it 2 because we asked for tap water with the meal but they refused! They said we needed to order coffee to have water. Shame. Apart from that it's ok.
