Nice quiet local on the water, wasn't crowded on a Sunday night. Staff very helpful, in fact picked us up at the Piazza Tasso so we didn't have to take the lift. Some of the flavors were less exciting than hoped. Fish was very fresh.

We tried out this restaurant after looking on TA and a recommendation from our hotel. We opted for the al a carte menu which was superb. Our entrees were cooked to perfection and the complimentary zucchini flower offered was to die for! Our mains were also delicious (lamb lion and sea bass) and well sized for the price. We tried...

This small restaurant hidden by the port in the Piccola Marina was recommended to me by the front desk at the Hotel as an alternative to one that was full on the night. Perhaps a blessing in disguise because the food for sumptuous, pleasant location away from the tourists and efficient service. Chef Squillante does a tremendous job with the... More

Good food and not to much priced. One of the better restaurants we had in Sorrento. Service was good only thing we had to ask for the change orherwise I would have gave them. In italy a lot of waiters do that.

Restaurant hidden in the Piccola Marina, but worth the walk! Finest food in Sorrento, friendly service. First time we came, we tried the Menù Degustazione, a true tasting experience! Second time, we only had a starter and a main dish, but again, the fine quality food blew us off our socks. Signore Squillante certainly knows how to surprise his guests!... More

As this restaurant seemed to have good reviews, we decided to try it last minute tonight. It was just dreadful. The restaurant presents dishes as if emulating great dishes in truly great restaurants. This is deceptive as the food is virtually inedible. The salt content was so high that it disguised the ingredients which were less than fresh. All in... More

Definitely a wrong way to spend a vacation day for arguing with his wife and parents in-laws, raising voice several times and also the risk of being turned away from the restaurant to avoid further problems. We are sorry but your problems had not to destroy our diligence and professionalism. With the hope that you'll came back in a better... More

We had a wonderful meal here - we found it on tripadvisor and it definitely lived up to our expectations! We went down to marina piccolo and it was quite hidden. I would definitely recommend getting an antipasti as we ordered the ravioli as our main dish as it was very small but delicious! The service was excellent - if... More

The best fish restaurant I have been so far in Sorrento and I have been here for three months. The food is just excellent and the chef is very creative with the dishes. It's not expensive for the uality you get! The restaurant is very relaxed and away from all the crowd that you find in Sorrento.

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and the other reviews are correct - the food was delicious as was the presentation and attentive staff. An added bonus was the courtesy pick up and drop off at our hotel. Thanks for a great meal!

We had the taster menu which was great value and absolutely lovely. Lots of nice touches and great service made for a really nice night. And so good we booked to go again in a couple of nights time!
