The menu indicates which dishes are made from frozen products. What an example! There was one waitress serving 4-5 tables. She had a busy evening but was friendly and warm. Food was good and the view unbeatable. No reservations but they say that tables never get full.

not enough people eating at this restaurant to ensure fresh ingredients. service was slow (probably b/c it takes time to defrost stuff) and food was not good. people are great though

The Il Nido menu offers a wide variety of choices and is enjoyed at the outside seating overlooking Sorrento, Naples Bay and Mount Vesuvius in the distance. The service is friendly and efficient with kudos to Jacqueline and Dino for making the experience extra enjoyable. As guests of the hotel, we ate there every night by choice. We recommend it.

We stayed at the hotel and opted for half-board. The fresh fish dishes were especially nice. Anything with fresh lemon is recommended as Sorrento is a premier lemon-growing area.

The food was excellent with many choices. The service and wine selection was also excellent. The view was wonderful, and the terrace seating was romantic with the view of the Bay of Naples and the city lights.

This is a hotel that I had the good fortune to stay at for 8 days this past May, 2014. To say that my first day began after just about everything with flights going wrong is an understatement. So, to calm nerves, my friend and I decided to eat our first meal in Sorrento right at Il Nido. What a... More

I stayed at Il Nido Hotel and enjoyed the excellent and abundant breakfast. Also had dinner in the restaurant twice, enjoyed all the food, but especially the grilled orata (sea bream). good pasta and risotto dishes too. Moderate prices.

Spectacularly beautiful views. Get a table on the terrace. The starts are amazing. The octopus and eggplant parm very well prepared. The fish is very fresh. The sea bream was delicately broiled, very moist. The profiteroles and other desserts were great. There was only two servers however. Slow service. But very friendly. Worth using one of your precious vacation nights... More

The best calamari and shrimps we have ever eaten! Very romantic place with fantastic view. Soft Italian music in the background; champagne and bruschetta on the house as a welcome. Excellent service topped with the owner (!) driving us back to our hotel due to heavy rain!
