Went here whilst on honeymoon, after being advised by trip advisor. We enjoyed it, however the experience was a little strange. The staff seemed very occupied with something else, which was indoors (the seating area is outside on decking on the beach) They were polite enough though. They only have fish on the menu, so beware of this! It's quite... More

We had two mediocre meals in Sorrento before we tried this and are really pleased we did. The food is fine dining at a good price. I had fantastic fresh seared tuna which was a starter but was more like a main course and the home-made pasta was the best I have ever eaten, it was 'melt in the mouth'.... More

Had a lovely meal and good service in a great beach side location tucked away around a corner, but not quite "excellent".

Located on a little street of the port of Sorrento, we were convinced by the waiter to sit down for lunch. Since this restaurant was on my list, we decided to try it. Only one table was occupied. The food was amazingly good. We had the lemon risotto ( a dream) another appetizer and the catch of the day (... More

This place really is tucked away on a beach area behind the Grand hotel Excelsior Vittoria in the marina Picolla. The setting of the outdoor dining area looked like a fast food type place and had it not been recommended to us we possibly wouldn't have visited. The service and food are outstanding. It's Michelin style presentation and service so... More

This restaurant was delicious! The service was delightful and they were very helpful. Exquisite menu with many regional dishes that really feel true to this area. Great for the seafood lover. Definitely not cheap, my wife and I got a bottle of wine, split an appetizer, each got a first course and each a second course, a dessert and two... More

Absolutely wonderful food in a beautiful setting. We were collected from our hotel by the waiter and dropped back on a complimentary transfer. The food is Michelin star standard (have the chateaubriand, just have it). Don't be put off by the lack of menu or prices on their website. Yes, we spent a lot there, but the courses are no... More

Chef Squillante al Ghibli at Marina Piccola in Sorrento is one of the best restaurants in which we have ever dined. Everything from the word go was just perfect.. from the very pleasant driver (one of the restaurant staff as it happens) which the restaurant sent to collect and return us to our hotel to the excellence cuisine and lovely...

We booked a table here and had a fantastic meal. We had the taster menu 45Euros, and although we ate quite early in the evening and ate on our own the service and food was excellent. As the restuarant is tucked away round the corner of the harbour I recommend you search for it and try it out.

We had tried 3 distinctly average restaurants in Sorrento before our family teenager found this gem on her iPhone/trip advisor. On the beach overlooking the Marina Piccolo it is off the main tourist beaten track. The setting is beautiful and the food truly exceptional! If you are looking for something rather better than a conveyor belt pizza and standard fritura... More
