Very good but not as it was 10 years ago

Used to visit here almost every evening 10 years ago. Came back to Sorrento last week and whilst the ice cream and service was very good, there was something not quite as good as it was when we last visited. Service did seem a little off-hand but that could be down to a difference in translation... read more

We were recommended this restaurant by a local trader, as whilst having a drink, we mentioned to him that we just fancied a pizza. He sent us to this restaurant, which from the outside, looks like an ice cream parlour/cafe..we nearly didn't go in thinking that was where you dined...but no it leads to a fantastic indoor, outdoor area restaurant,...

We were recommended Bougainvillea by the owners of Jolly's grocers in Sorrento while staying at the Bristol last year and we're so glad he did. For €6 you get to taste the best wood fired Pizza Margarita in Sorrento. We returned to Sorrento in April this year and visited once again. The staff are always friendly and greet you with... More

Whilst in Sorrento April 2015 my wife and I visited this restaurant / ice cream parlour and found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The decoration and layout of the restaurant was very modern and stylish, there was a great choice of ice cream and pastries and all food and drink was beautifully presented. There is plenty of...

We had a fun afternoon making gelato after having had lunch at the cafe one day earlier and spotting this was possible. We took our children 11,8 and 6 and we all had a super time making lemon and hazelnut ice cream, the lady who runs the class is super friendly and made it great fun. It was very participative...
