After reading the glowing reviews here, we called and booked reservations. Our driver came pretty much on time and picked us up and then another couple. Then we were off to the restaurant, which is indeed hidden behind the causeway. You can see some nice boats but little else. However, that was fine. The wait staff was friendly and the... More

This restaurant at the Marina Piccolo is right at waterside but the view of the bay is blocked by the marina's breakwater. (The other marina, Marina Grande, has the views.). It's a small, family restaurant with a few nice touches and friendly service. Our fish was fresh and the risotto was delicately flavored. If your hotel calls, they will pick... More

We visited Ghibli on Sunday evening. Again, reviews on TA pointed us in its direction. I made reservations by email and Mario was good enough to arrange a pick-up from Piazza Tasso. Gennaro, ah Genarro, what a lovely guy, a great character who obviously enjoys his work. He kept us entertained from pick-up to drop-off, which made the evening even... More

Had dinner here last week and am unsure quite how to review this. The charming Mario picked us up from our hotel through the near stationary Bank Holiday traffic and down the winding Via Luigi de Maio to the Marina Piccolo at a pace that would make Fangio cover his eyes. We had just enough time to dictate our death... More

Charming, family run restaurant with views over the Piccolo harbour and of Vesuvius. Delicious, beautifully presented imaginative food, attentive and helpful staff. Loved this restaurant.

We visited whilst on our honeymoon in Italy. Up until this point we had been less then impressed with Italy and the way the Italian people treated tourists. This restaurant flipped all that on its head. the service is welcoming and friendly. the wait staff are very attentive often checking on us and asking how our meals were. The view... More

We had the lucky coincidence to be staying in a lovely little B& B close to Ghibli on the Marina Piccola. We walked passed it on a number of occasions thinking it to be a small snack bar cum coffee shop. How wrong we were. Had it not been for another happy coincidence of speaking to some other visitors to... More

This is a hard one to find as at the port rather than in the town.... round the corner as you go down on the small beach. If without transport it is a climb but the restaurant should pick you up so it is easy. It is at the bottom of the Hotel Vittorio's private lift! The food is excellent... More

We visited Sorrento for one night only (Easter) during our trip to Italy. We arrived on Sunday morning with no reservation or plans for dinner. Our Airbnb hosts recommended Restaurant Ghilbi and arranged our reservations for us, even including transportation to and back! We were the first to arrive for dinner and received undivided attention from the staff. They were... More
