We called in here as we were staying at Maria Theresa's B&B. It is a sensational place. The choice of food & range of ice creams & desserts is phenomenal. It is sooooo clean you could eat off the floor.

We visited a few times for gelato. Delicious gelato! Service is prompt and pleasant. We loved stracchiatella(spelling?).The gelato with Oreo bits was also delicious also.

Nice place for a tea or coffee in Sorrento. The place is clean and it seems to have quite a large selection of cakes pastries and icecreams Slightly expensive but overall quite reasonable

7.50 Euro for a cappuccino and an Americano is ridiculously expensive even for a Sorrento. That there is no wifi is simply ridiculous in a cafe these days. The coffee is ok but nothing to write home about. Sorry. Avoid. there are dozens of other choices.

Their menu reads like a telephone directory! So many flavours available you have to go back again and again.

We had a great lunch at this restaurant, modern decor with bright ambiance. Pizza was great and their pasta was excellent, they also have a large gelato parlour with plenty of selections to choose from. Service was excellent and friendly.

We have been several times for a meal, great food, nice staff, great location, normally you do not even have the room to move as it is always so narrow. Amazing

Wide range of lactose free ice cream (made with rice milk) and gluten free cones (but they'd run out by the time we got there). Impressive range of milk-made ice creams and you can even have a helping of Nutella!!!!! Oh my!!!!! Bliss.

If I want an icecream I want a big portion of it! :) 2 flavours were 2,50 eur which isn't expensive but the portion was not big. So if you want "normalish" portion of ice cream pick more flavours and pay more :) the taste was really good!

I never wanted to leave. The staff were lovely the food was amazing both savoury and sweet. If you love pizza and gelato this is the place to be. The only problem was deciding what to eat.
