Considered one of the best restaurant in the area I can just confirm they offers really a very nice atmosphere and culinary experience. The location is bit uncomfortable if you are not staying the area but the location is really nice, just close to the port of this small town. The wine list is amazing and the different desserts which... More

Although it was a cold and stormy November evening when we went to the Torre del Saracino, the welcome we received could not have been warmer and the food could not have been more delicious. The chef himself, Gennaro Esposito, came to greet us at our table, and we decided to put ourselves entirely in his hands and let him... More

Getting there is wonderful, the parking and outside of restaurant is basic, and you start to think something is wrong, then you enter, you seat on the terrace and you look at the gulf and at the sea, and the set up is just fantastic. But that's nothing compared to food, a cultural and unforgettable experience. One of the best... More

Amazing culinary experience. Staff are friendly and knowledgable. The chef visits the tables during the service as well should you have any questions. The food is simply amazing, one of the best places I've ever been to.

The chef is an amazingly gifted artist. Every time I go back the food and wine are simply spectacular. If I could I would lick every single plate. The restaurant is also beautifully appointed and the staff is warm, but not hovering. Ask for a tour of the wine cellar and the tower if you have never seen it before.

Chef esposito knows better than anyone how to introduce you to sorrento's "terroir". The rissotto is amazingly tasty, thanks to his local pomodori and limon. His way of cooking oysters:outstanding. I' m not even going to mention the pasta..... The perfection is also in the design of the restaurant. He has beatifully managed to turn a sarasine tower into a... More

Absolutely our favorite place to eat and enjoy the good life in Italy. Parking is available so you can rest easy as you wind down the road to the waterfront. Gennaro Esposito, the proprietor, is not only one of the great chefs in Italy he is a gracious and wonderful person who delights in preparing a fabulous meal for every... More

Watching the kitchen of a top-notch restaurant at the height of a busy meal -- especially when it is "slammed" -- reveals the "soul" of the chef, the cook staff and the wait staff. Gennaro Esposito is full of soul. In the midst of a huge rush of orders with everyone scurrying like mad to keep up, he was having... More
