“Hidden Gem in Meta!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stayed in Meta, Sorrenta for a week in July 2014 so that we could be away from the busy, tourist area of Sorrento. We loved Meta as it was a quiet place to retreat to after busy days of sightseeing and visiting the beautiful sights of Sorrento and surrounding area. After long days, we often retreated to our villa and picked up pizza from Covent Gardens in Meta. The service was quick and friendly. The pizza was cooked in wood ovens and probably some of the best we tasted in all of Italy. A few nights, we ate in their cozy gardens. The service was great and they always threw in something extra, such as fries. Now for the best part...their prices are very reasonable. You can pick up a large pizza for less than 5 euros. Hidden gem to find for sure!

“Lovely pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Myself and my family have dined at Covent Garden on a number of occasions whilst on holiday. The pizza was excellent and so were the lovely little Italian "bits and bobs" (starters).
The staff were very friendly too - we had a great time!

“Good food, relatively private, clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Excellent presentation of the menu featuring the map of the British tube. Good food choices, lovely presentation of the meats on a traditional wooden cutting board.
Rucola salad with chicken was fresh and tasty.
Large theater screen displays Italian news and possibly sport events to gather a large crowd.
Restroom was clean, had soap, toilet paper and paper towels, a rare thing in Italy.

“Overpriced and no customer service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This place is a kind of wannabe british pub with expensive drinks and a very bad attitude and service. There is no atmosphere whatsoever and expect to be overcharged. Also the choice of music is bad and can't believe there are people would actually enjoy it. Just AVOID!!!

“Pub/restaurant in Meta di Sorrento”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

A nice place to go in Meta for drinks and/or food. Extensive food and beverage menu. Great pizza.

Very quiet before 9pm in the evening. Can draw a young crowd, especially on the weekend. Quite a large venue with different themed nights held through the week (eg quiz night, dancing, etc).

My only reservation is that service is sometimes slow (although that is not unusual in Italy).
