4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We went for dinner and had a nice meal over there. The food was good and the service was nice and friendly, prices are also reasonable. We ordered few pasta dishes which were great, except one soup dish (the mushrooms soup) which was really disappointing. Other than that we liked the place and we would go there again if we... More

We walked past this restaurant on our way to another and felt that it looked good from the outside and we would give it a try. But the good decor, linen table cloths and serviettes is where the good bits stopped. The waiter gave us a plate of bruschetta style pizza saying it was at the compliments of the chef.... More

We visited this place and it was so good we returned again. Both visits were excellent. It is huge inside. The staff greet you like friends and service is not too fast and not too slow. We had the best Frascati I have ever drunk and only 22 euros. The meals were lovely and the staff always attentive. Great place.

Seen quite a few good reviews on this place and the menu looked lovely so we came for dinner. Waiter was pleasant and i had the caprese salad to start which was lovely. That's the best I can say I'm afraid. I had ordered one of the chefs specials - lobster tortellini for my main (no price beside it on... More

good food and service tucked away in side alley yet in middle of action….catering to visitors and a good place to start the Sorrento visit….fresh seafood with wide variety and easy location is the attraction

Went here last year on our last day, so good we went back this year, staff as friendly and helpful as before and if possible food even better, we had the fish dish and chicken dish and both gorgeous, they really look after you here.

We visited twice during our stay in Sorrento - both times the food was very good and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The inside of the restaurant is nicer than sitting outside - and the pizza bread bruschetta is probably the best we tasted locally. The pizzas were very good, as was the pasta dishes. Good for kids... More

Really enjoyed the food here, prices averages for Sorrento restaurants, good friendly service. The menu had a good choice, and the food itself tasted great. Worth a visit in the evenings, but you might want to reserve a table the night before .. just in case.
