Just had a week in Sorrento; lovely place and a stunning coastline with superb weather. Restuarant Ghibli was on our list of restuarants to try based on trip advisor customer reviews. We had a walk down to the small marina on our first day in resort and happened on the restuarant - it is out of view as you approach... More

The setting on the beach was unique. I don't know if this is a family-run restaurant but we were definitely treated like family so despite the top quality of the food we felt at home. Definitely worth seeking out. A bit expensive, but it's a cut above your standard trattoria.

EXTREMELY delicious! Quality, perfection and taste in every bite. Risotto with lemon was amazing. My boyfriend was on cloud 9 when we left and kept talking about the food the rest of the trip. GO HERE!

We visited a lot of restaurants in Sorrento, but this was one we had to visit twice. The food was fantastic, and the service excellent. Definitely worth a visit. "the boss" (as our waiter described her) is clearly passionate about her restaurant and her food, and a brilliant host.

We've had some fabulous meals in Sorrento and Italy, but this one probably took the cake. There were 4 of us for lunch. we had the tuna starter and cuttlefish starter and the typical antipasti. they were all very nicely prepared. then we had some homemade pasta with squid and the raviolis with shrimp. Both excellent. and the homemade crackers... More

We went for a walk in town and decided to go and find this restaurant based on the reviews on TA and the photos on their website made it look very inviting. It was around 8pm when we walked down the many steps from the main square and after rounding the corner of a building were met by cheap looking... More

We had a pleasant evening here in August, the food was mainly seafood as to be expected. Communication is a little difficult if you don't speak Italian or have only the basics, but with the help of their son we managed to get by. it was quiet which helped, so we had a bit more time to make ourselves understood,...

Hotel pickup service and quaint location by the pier is good; however, the starters, fish, eggplant, desserts are all lacking in flavor. Especially noticeable if you've dined at places like L'Antica or Bellevue Syrene also in Sorrento. Service is friendly but slow and lacking. Patron at another table sent their dinner back.

Dear herb B, We don't want to discuss about your personal idea of "good" or "tasty" but at the same time we distrust you from giving support to your review based on lies, as no client has sent the dinner back! Best regards Mario Squilante More

Dinner on the beach in a quaint little restaurant. The food and service were wonderful. The owners ensure that you are well taken care of from start to finish. Pick up service is available for no charge. The fish is fresh, pasta was superb and the wine excellent. This is a great choice in Sorrento.

We gave this one a shot based on the reviews on here, the food was ok, nothing special but ok. The fish was reasonable but the fillets were quite small and weren't as fresh as we expected. The service was rubbish, we were one of 4 or 5 small tables and we were still ignored. A few things really stood... More
