I can not understand why this restaurant is not rated higher. It is run by two brothers who are fully involved and can not do enough for you. The wine list is huge. The largest I have ever seen and the two brothers are very knowledgeable about their wines. The food is exceptional. It is not cheap but it is... More

We stopped here on our way back from a trip to Amalfi, and before returning to our cruise ship. It was very busy ,being a Sunday, but the waiters were very helpful and found us a table at the front. It was a wonderful place to watch the locals go by. Our chilled beers were most needed. It looked as... More

Stopped in for dinner. Everything from the bread to the dessert was perfect. We sat outside and chatted with other patrons. We watched to hustle and bustle and got to know the waiter. Had a perfect evening.

This place was recommended to us by a waitress in Amalfi. It lived up to expectations & more, great service, excellent food, one of the best restaurants we have been too in Italy. Yes it is pricey, but you get quality food, and you get what you pay for, highly recommend it!

The staff in this restaurant and the restaurant next door ('O Canonico 1898) Steak Restaurant are awful, they are owned by the same people or are just very close. But they dictate that if you want a steak and your partner wants a pizza you can't sit in the elevated steak restaurant as pizza eaters are not allowed in this... More

We thought the food was quite good but terribly overpriced. The value just isn't there. The waiter was informative but you just got the feeling you could't trust him. The atmosphere was OK. The owner or manager spent a lot of time with a local couple net to us but never acknowledged our existence. We won't return, We just did... More

Never an option for us again. I do not reccomend this place. They are not honest people. Be careful because they will not do what they commit to.

We were able to walk to the restaurant on the recommendation of the staff at Villa de Sorrento. The service was good and attentive, though it took several 'asks' before receiving our bill. The food was delicious and the atmosphere casual.

This was a wonderful place to gather after we had all scattered for the day. Had wonderful beverages and bites. They are so friendly and the food was very good. Would visit again for the atmosphere.
