Il sombrero is located in a nice area, directly on the coast street. It has a beautiful big garden which creates a nice atmosphere. Service is very attentive and sweet. However good is rather average. Overall it was a nice experience

We have chosen this place thanks to TripAdvisor and actually it has been a good choice. Good sea food and cheap. We were five and we took 6 big starters of fish + one risotto with fish + 5 main sea food dishes + 3 coffees + 3 liquors. Total 28€ each Very good!!!!

After a poor experience the night before, our hopes for a good meal in Amantea were slim. However, based upon the recommendation of the receptionist at our hotel we went to Il Sombrero and could not have been more pleased. We arrived early and were the first table to be seated but the room was full when we left, with... More

It didn't disappoint - except maybe that they don't fire up the oven for pizza for lunch, but that's not unusual... shame though as it was my last chance to have a pizza but we were there for lunch. I had parma and melone and the biggest portion arrived and fantastic... More

Good food, antipasti and fish. Pizza in the evening. Great dolce. Ask for Fabio, an English speaking waiter, who can give... More

We walked from the Meditteraneo Hotel... lots of action along the beach. The restaurant is big. There was a soccer game on the Big Screen (the sound was off.) It felt like a local place. We had pizzas which were very good. No great shakes on the wine list but the prices were right. I couldn't navigate to the Clarisse,... More
