“Great for people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This has to be one of the best bars in Sorrento. Staff are friendly and professional. Drinks are well priced and good. The house wine is very drinkable and cheap. They have a range of snacks that are tasty. Little touches like free nibbles are appreciated. We visited on several occasions during our fortnight stay and enjoyed it everytime.
Thursday nights are music nights and when we were there a really good female vocalist entertained us and the passing public.

“A must visit bar in Sorrento.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This restaurant/bar is THE place to people watch in the Piazzo Taaso in Sorrento. It is set back on a busy corner where you can watch the scooters weave and buses dodge the pedestrians! The bar is separated from the road behind the flower pots that are wheeled into the square to stop the traffic of a night. The service is second to none - nothing is too much trouble, very polite, cheery and on the ball, remembering you and your orders from previous visits and always with a smile and time to talk with you. On the many occasions we went there, we had superb draught beer, excellent house wine and one of the best pizzas and bruchetta we ate in our entire time in Italy - and at a very good price. Highly recommended and when we return to Sorrento, this bar will be one of the first places we visit.

“Great bar, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

This bar is at the top end of Piazzo Tasso, it's a fantastic place to sit and people watch. The drinks are really nice too butit's the service that makes it stand out. All of the staff are exceptionally friendly and remember their customers orders from one night to the next despite the large amount of people passing through.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

I went with my boyfriend at the end of June. We went every night. The staff were fantastic, chatty, helpful and just overall lovely. The wine was beautiful and so were the little nibbles they put down for us. Michele the waiter was amazing. He doted us every night and apologised when service was slow when it was extra busy. It has a central location looking out onto the main square too!
