We had just finished the route march down to the beach and back and promised ourselves food when we got back to the top. We picked this restaurant because it looked over the bay. The food was good and not too expensive and the waiter (in this case Joseph) was charming and helpful. Was worth the walk.

Our first time in Sorrento and area with our small family of 4. Finding food for everyone isn't always hard but who wants to eat pizza all the time? We were told about Il Cantuccio by a family staying in the same villa as we were and they said every time they come to Italy they eat there. We saw... More

Sergio and Franco made our stay in Massa Lubrense even more special with fabulous service and some of the best food I have eaten throughout Italy. I happen to be celiac- the rest of my family is not. I had choices of types of gluten free pasta! The red snapper when caught that day is amazing in the pasta and... More

We stopped at this restaurant for a late lunch after a very hot and exhausting walk from Sorrento in the midday heat. The restaurant was very pleasant with a bamboo roof and open at the sides with fabulous views out to sea towards the island of Capri. It was a welcome break after our walk to sit with a cool... More

We and two other couples ate here in September, 2010 and the food was such a disappointment - overpriced and just not good. I had the fish at the recommendation of the staff and it was a tiny fillet that was overcooked and thus dry. I finished with an insalata mista, and it was the first salad in Italy that... More

We stayed in Sorento, but explored most of the cities on the Amalfi Coast., Naples and Rome. Our overall experience of the food in every city was mediocre - bland, tasteless, little if no use of herbs (which grow in abundance!), spices, and even garlic. Except for Il Cantuccio - which we stumbled upon going thru Massa Lubrense, a few... More

We had a mid-day meal here on the first day of arrival and a dinner later in the week. The food was exquisite. I dream of the pappardelle I had. Service was gracious, welcoming and attentive. For both meals there were large parties of Italians celebrating, with beautiful and well-behaved children playing games in the garden, which overlooks the bay.... More

We visited this restaurant twice, on the first day and on the last as it was the best food we tasted all week. Starters / Pasta: Ravioli Caprese was superb, Ricotta clearly very fresh and melted in the mouth, very light tomato sauce. Zucchini stuffed with ricotta. deep fried in a very light batter and served with excellent pesto sauce... More
