“Good fish restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Sorrento is a tourist town and as such you do not always anticipate the level of quality and service you receive from places where repeat business defines business success.

Re foods had been recommended by friends and the quality and service were certainly a cut above what you would expect in such a location.

The welcome was warm and the staff were solicitous and detailed in their description of the items on the menu and their recommendations. The restaurant seems to specialise in seafood and be warned that the portions are abundant (those with bigger appetites in our group ended up cleaning the plates of those with smaller stomachs). All the food was fresh and of high quality, not cheap but a location I would be happy to return to.

“Excellent Food - Very Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We met a young man on our way into Sorrento for the first time to try and find some groceries for our rented villa and get our bearings. This young man was more than helpful and went out of his way to make sure we got where we needed to be and were served properly by the locals.

It turned out that in his quest to help us out, he found himself late for work. We asked him where he worked and he told us that he was a waiter at a local restaurant.

We decided that to thank this man, and to help him out with his boss, we would take our group of six and have dinner at his restaurant. We did not know what we were in for, but his helpfulness was worth taking a chance on a restaurant that we did not know or had not researched.

We followed him into Historic Sorrento, around corners and down the narrow lanes till we got to his restaurant, called "Re-Food" Seemed like an odd name for a restaurant, however when we walked in, it was all done in seventies style retro, with colors of the era and plexi everywhere.

Not exactly what we envisioned in our quest for traditional Italian in Historic Sorrento, however our concerns were soon allayed when they sat us down to one of the best meals any of us have had in a long time.

The seafood was fresh and tasty, the pasta was incredible and the tomato sauce tasted as though they had just picked the tomatoes for it!

An amazing experience. We would go back!!

“Best food in Sorrento!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We had three meals here, and wished we'd discovered it earlier so we could have had more. The food was uniformly delicious. Most memorable for me was a starter of deep-fried courgette flowers with ricotta - yum! The waiter recommended a local wine - fanzone - which was also delicious. On our second and third visits we were welcomed back like old friends. We had some variable culinary experiences in Sorrento - this was the best, hands down.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

On recommendations I booked for our gourmet foodies from Australia for a meal here.
It was definitely a wrong choice. We where treated as we where an inconvenience and lectured to repeatedly what wine we could drink, considering that half our group didn't drink this was insulting. The food was average and the sauce on the cannelloni in my opinion was still slightly raw and acidic. Being in the food industry for over 30 years and eaten all over the world at a high standard and have catered to many large groups at home, I found that management could not be bothered with us, placing our tables in the back of the restaurant next to the toilets, where the door was not shut. The food was average and not memorable like the last 15 places we had eaten at all over Italy where we where treated with respect.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Personally, as a family of four we really enjoyed the food here, out of 7 days visiting various restaurants in Sorrento this was the best. Best to book, we were turn away on our first visit as they were fully booked.
We got some strange looks from other tables, when sharing food. Do people not share food in Italy???!!!
Would give them 5/5 but no restaurant deserves that mark unless they cut my food and fed me!!!
