The restaurant was adorable and the staff was lovely. However, the food was not good. We both sent our food back which is something I never do. I felt terrible but I just couldn't eat it.

This restaurant is amazing!! I went there with my mum for her 60th and they surprised both of us with a cake! They went out of the way to accommodate me as I am a vegetarian and even went off the menu to make sure I had a meal that was everything I liked. Food was first class and if... More

They had a beautiful menu offering things such as Wild Boar which was right up my alley. The pasta was freshly made and delicious! Wine prices were great, and the local wines were beyond compare. Something for everyone!

Good price, great quality food and very friendly staff is how I would sum up this restaurant. We visited several times and were 100% satisfied on all occasions. In an obscure location away from the main road but is worth finding.

Even if it is a bit far from Sorrento, this restaurant is worth a visit. We ate the best pizza we found during our vacation, plus very good pasta and fish.

We went here when staying at Hotel Prestige. It was one of the best Italian meals I had had! Beautiful pasta, beautiful boar for main course and wonderful wine. The service was friendly and not rushed. Would recommend - it's a shame there isn't another one nearer town!

This is a lovely restaurant and the staff were fine, allowing time between courses so that we had a relaxed, unhurried evening. Perhaps we chose the wrong things but my wild boar must have been a very tough old beast, while my wife's risotto was very bland. It could also have something to do with the time of year, late...

We enjoyed dinner here one night during a stay near Sorrento. We ate outside on the covered veranda and were rather chilly by the meal's end but it could be lovely at another time. The food was fine. Not great, but pleasant. The wait staff were polite and organized. The TV on the wall was very distracting and seemed rather... More
