“Awesome food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

This is by far the best restaurant of our three week trip across Italy. Found this place on Tripadvisor and so glad we took the time to find it. It is located in a back alley, not an easy find, but once there, the grandeur of the place is amazing. We never expected to find such a jewel of a restaurant hidden back there.

The food is amazing! The staff are wonderful! The owner takes the time to come by every table. It is a very special place. Everything is made from scratch so you must be patient. In the meantime they offered us a glass of Prosecco on the house, took pictures and made our wait fly by.

At the end of our meal, they offered us Limocello and Melon liquors on the house. Can't say enough about this restaurant. You must go!

“Just fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

This restaurant came recommended by the hotel we were staying at in Sorrento.

Our table was one of the outside ones located in a private grotto set against the various fruit trees emphasized by well positioned lighting.

The food, the local wine, the service and the conversation is nothing less than top class - the perfect setting for a romantic anniversary dinner.

Highly recommended!

“Fantastic meal, welcoming environment, food quality and preparation superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This restaurant is very near the main Piazza Tasso, but on a side street, so many travelers don't find it. Take a few moments to find it, and you'll be much happier than if you go into one of the restos that needs barkers to con people in. We enjoyed salads with the freshest arugola (rucola, roquette) and pears, pasta with porcini mushrooms, lemon veal, and Primitivo red wine. The host and staff were happy to see us and treated us well. Of our three nights in Sorrento (and our 7 nights in southern Italy so far) this was the absolute best. Don't leave Sorrento without trying I Giardini di Tasso, 1.5 blocks from the Piazza Tasso.

“A relaxing, delicious dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The atmosphere was tranquil in the garden. A singer/guitar player was playing but not too loudly. The food was delicious and the service was great. The owners are very involved and ensure that you are having an experience in which you would want to recommend the restaurant to others. Overall, a great meal/time.

I can't really speak to the value or cost as it was one of the included dinners on our tour through Smithsonian Journeys.

“5 star quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

The food here is amazing. The staff are friendly. Set in picture perfect location. The sea food is fresh out of the Mediterranean Sea. The food is also great value for money. The pasta is wonderful and very taste. I would recommend it for anyone.
