“A Happy Customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Towards the end of September I visited Meating, it had been reccomended by the Thompson Tour Rep (Sam).
The service was excellent and we were seated upstairs as soon as we got there. Once sat we were provided with menus, we made our choice and then we were provided with walnuts with hard italian cheese and some sparkling wine (this was complimentary), just before the main course arrived a couple of appetisers arrived, these were also complimentary. They were also delicious.
When the main arrived (I had a filet steak with porccini mushrooms) I was a happy man as the steak was of a good size, it had also been cooked perfectly for me. Things like french fries and salad are extras and come in seperate dishes. The good thing about this is there is enough of both french fries and of the salad that if you were of a mind you could split the extras between two diners.
The meal was thoroughly enjoyable as was watching one of the guys prepare steak tartare at the table of another pair of diners as we relaxed and consumed some Lacryma Christi Rosso.
To be honest I was also expecting the bill to be considerably more than it was, however for what we paid I would honestly say that it was a bargain and that when I am in Sorrento again I will be visiting.

“Fantastic steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

My husband and I had a wonderful meal in this restaurant. It was the best meal of our trip!!
Loved the free starter of a deep fried pizza, very tasty. Also loved the free glass of prosecco too. Our steaks were cooked to perfection . The staff were very friendly . Our waiter ( a young guy with slicked back hair and glasses) was excellent, an asset to the restaurant. Also loved the guy singing and playing the keyboard.

When we visit Sorrento again, we will return!!

“great steaks, great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

we went here twice on our recent visit to Sorrento and were not disappointed...recommended on Tripadvisor and very easily found in a little street just off the main square... the service is superb, quietly efficient and helpful...the food is incredible if you are a carnivore, and much as we love Italy and pasta we do enjoy a steak.. once you have ordered you are served a little taster of Parmesan and walnuts with a glass of chilled prosecco, simple and delicious...this is then followed by small pizza rolls (calzone) which are freshly made and just the perfect size..again wonderful taste and on our first visit all of this was a surprise... by our second visit we were so looking forward to them! we both had the fillet and it was cooked perfectly as requested and just melted in the mouth...the accompaniments were excellent and complimented the steaks perfectly..a selection of sauces is also provided to further enrich the experience..we had no room for desserts but on both visits we saw nieghbouring tables select various desserts and all looked absolutely mouthwatering.. on our second visit we again had the fillet this time done with mushrooms and if anything it was even tastier than the plain grilled fillet we had previously..a small glass of limoncello and some sweets were served with the bill and I have to say this just finished the meal to perfection for us.. All in all an absolute must if you enjoy meat of any kind, as they have a wonderful range of cuts displayed in a chiller cabinet.... the service and care received from the delightful staff and the ambience of the soft music made this our favourite place to eat in Sorrento and it was also incredibly reasonably priced.. we will be back for sure
