Restaurant with sea breeze and a view

Our tour group had lunch at this lovely restaurant by the seaside after we arrived at Sorrento by boat from Capri . We were seated at the outdoor tables under marquee with unobstructed view of the port and enjoyed the sea breeze while we savoured the deliciously prepared food (set lunch arranged by... read more

While eating our way through Italy we often took recommendations from the locals. In this case it was the front desk at the hotel who said it was excellent food and they would come pick us up which they did. Even cut a few minutes off the time to get there by allowing us to take a turn the police... More

We had a very tasty meal. Our hotel arranged a ride for us from the Palazzo Tasso to the Ghibli restaurant. The driver was also our waiter, he was delightful! My husband asked to meet the chef and we were taken to the kitchen. Not only was the food delicious, the kitchen was spotlessly clean. The entire staff was wonderful,... More

We chose this resturant for our wedding as we both wanted something unique and special and I'm glad I found this hidden gem after a lot of research. The food, service and hygiene are the best ever, our whole party commented on how nice the location was; away from the hustle and bustle of the city above as its set... More

I read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and sought it out on a quiet night.The welcome was warm and genuine. The family-run restaurant made you feel truly at home. I had a lovely meal of seafood main , mixed meat and veg anti-pasta and a glass of rose. Everything was excellent. The "cherry on the cake" was being given a... More

I felt as if I was dining @ a fine restaurant in New York without the seaside. The owner and her family were attentive and warm. The food was delicious but not satisfying due to extremely small portions. I had the ravioli and it was superb - the food quality is also top notch.

Italian style friendly service from the lady owner, feels like dine in friend's house. Mixed seafood is highly recommend, strong and nice tomato olive oil flavor with super large portion.

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!
