We had read previous reviews on tripadvisor and thought we would give the restaurant a try and were glad we did. So glad I felt compelled to comment on our experience.
Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and seated quickly. Upon being seated we were promptly brought complementary welcome prosecco based drinks and nibbles, this was a lovely touch. We went for the set menu upon the hosts recommendations and were very pleased we did. At 30 euro each the meal was very reasonably priced and hugely plentiful (I am glad we hadn’t had a large lunch!). The restaurant accommodated that one of the six of us is allergic to tomatoes and another doesn’t like fish. They adapted the fixed menu around our needs with no problems.
For the food, the starters comprised of plenty of cold meats, cheeses, salad and fish dishes, followed by a pasta dish with seafood for the second course. The third course was either a fish dish or in my husband’s case a steak which was huge! The fish was very tasty and fresh. Followed by a delicious desert and complementary grappa and limoncello. The house white was dry, light and very drinkable and again reasonably priced. The food was very tasty, good quality and plentiful. The price for the amount of food given was truly brilliant and far surpassed other restaurants we ate out in on our stay when considering value for money. The meal was a full Italian evening experience and thankfully not a rushed one. Yes there were gaps between courses but we all were very grateful for some time to digest one course before going onto another and the service was impeccable throughout.
As for the service we found it the most welcoming and attentive of our stay across vico, Sorrento and amalfi. The owners went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating. We were given the recipe for the delicious tiramisu upon asking.
The restaurant is small and family run. Its set back off the main stretch although not far at all to walk (less than five minute walk from the main road). It was pretty inside, traditional and atmospheric.
In summary we were well looked after in every way, the food was delicious and very good value for money. It was clear to us that a lot of the family’s time, effort and passion goes into this restaurant. I think as a group we will all remember the night fondly so thank you Vic street we can’t recommend you enough and shall certainly be back without a shadow of a doubt.
