“Seek this out-you will be glad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The owner/chef, Alfonso, is one of the most engaging and hospitable persons we have encountered in Italy. We miss him already. He is on a mission from God to make really outstanding food available to his guests. We wish he were down the street, but sadly, there is nothing like his Taverna in the cold reaches of Maine. Everything is fresh - even to the loaves of bread that he bakes every day. When he sleeps, we don't know. We wound up having 2 lunches and a dinner with him, including our last meal in St. Agnello, where we stayed for a week. If you are in the Sorrento area, seek him out, you will not be sorry. If you are staying in St. Agnello, get a meal ticket.

“Greatly enjoyed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed our meal at taverna Rossa. The owner was very welcoming, it really felt like having dinner with family. The meals were fresh, and delicious and well priced. The waiter was very helpful and friendly. The restaurent is within walking distance of central Sorrento and well worth a visit.

“Wonderful birthday celebration!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

On Oct. 9, my daughter from Miami, Florida and I celebrated our birthdays with friends at this fabulous restaurant. Alfonso, his uncle Constanzo, and his mother made us feel like part of their family. A few days before the party, we ate a wonderful lunch of seared tuna there and planned a special menu for the party. We had antipasti, chicken and fish, a delicious rice dish, red and white wine and the best bread ever. At midnight they brought out a beautiful birthday cake made by Alfonso.We had Prosecco, and finished the night with glasses of limoncello. Oh, what a night!!
