Set within walking distance from the water's edge, there's not much that can beat this view! What a fantastic dining experience. From the top class food to the fantastic service and conversation, it was definitely a highlight of our trip to Sorrento. This is a little gem and well worth a visit.

This little restaurant is a must go when you go to visit Sorrento. It is beautifully located in the little harbor with a nice view over the sea. The food is fantastic and the service is super friendly. The son of the owner drove us back to the hotel after dinner which was very nice as it is otherwise a... More

We ate here last night and had a truly great dining experience. Before our antipasti arrived we'd already been given three different types of beautiful fresh breads. We then had first, second and dessert. Following this we had coffee which came with even more food. It was all delicious, and the waiters were extremely nice. The area is really quite... More

The evening started with Mario picking us up on time from our hotel. There had Bennett floods the evening before so it was very quiet on the waterfront, but the stating is so nice and the food was excellent it didn't matter Would definitely recommend the place for food and service

The location of the restaurant is so close to the water it was spectacular. I loved the location and enjoyed sitting outside at the end of the evening enjoying the views. The family running the restaurant is wonderful and they were able to spend a good amount of time with us as there were not many other customers when we... More

The owner/chef here worked at a 2* Michelin restaurant and this shows in his food - its excellent. Some of the best ravioli I have tasted. Its a family run establishment and service can be a bit sketchy if they are busy. This restaurant is situated on the water at Marina Piccolo so lovely location and they will collect and... More

We visited this restaurant twice and it was by far the best food we ate in Sorrento. The warm, home-made bread was delicious and the desserts were wonderful. The gnocchi was an excellent dish for vegetarians and there is a huge choice of fresh fish. The setting is lovely - it's right on the beach round a corner from the... More

Fantastic. Family run. Right on the beach. Quiet spot. Absolutely delicious food. While a bit pricey, if you can splurge, you will love this place. They will even pick you up and/or drive you back. The house wine is a steal here. Highly recommended for those that don’t mind dropping a little coin.

The quality of the food in Ghibli is consistently excellent; interesting flavour combinations cooked up by the man of the house for the hors d'oeuvres primi, secundi and deserts. Friendly service, if hampered to a certain extent by the variable English of the delightful wife of the family who own the restaurant and could easily confuse an order. The setting... More
