This food rivals any food we’ve eaten. It’s a little hard to locate and I'm glad we found it in the daylight. Go to the port at Marina Piccolo and while looking at the Port, it’s behind you on the right—it faces the port. When we looked at the menu, there wasn’t a tasting menu, but we requested it and...

While visiting in August we were recommended somewhere else at the port, so happy it was fully booked and, turning around the corner, unexpectedly we found this amazing place! Simply amazing! Beautiful, friendly, great standard everything - location, view, food, service... Can still feel a taste of truly Italian courgette gnocchi that we shared as a starter, tenderly cooked tuna... More

We found this restaurant on our last night in Sorrento, it is almost on the beach by Marina Piccola and away from the main tourist area. The setting is lovely and the food excellent, we would highly recommend.

I was dinning alone, but the staff was very friendly. I had very fresh shellfish and a salad. The meal was delicious. This restaurant was right next to our b&b so it was very convenient.

Ghibli was recommended by our Hotel Villa Garden. We were picked up and dropped back to our hotel by the owners son who was a very polite and friendly young man. We were taken straight to the restaurant which is situated right by the water with its gentle lapping waves. We were looked after so well and the food was... More

We received a recommendation from one of the local hotels & they were spot on. The food was absolutely amazing, I'd even go so far as to say it was the best meal we had in the 2 weeks we traveled through Italy. They had a wonderful selection of fresh caught seafood and the sea bass was delicious. We shared... More

The restaurant was recommended by hotel Belair. The food was delicious and we were served by Rosseta and her staff. We were picked up by her son on the main plaza which was very convenient to go down to the port and back after the meal. We loved the arancini with squid ink and on the second occasion delicious pasta... More

This was right outside of our window, on the beach at Marina Piccola in Sorrento. Wonderful inventive cooking in a relaxed setting. Small family operated restaurant that works very hard to insure your satisfaction. We had sea bass and a seafood risotto that were excellent. Quiet and tucked away around the corner at the marina - well worth the walk... More

This restaurant was amazing! We went late Sunday night so there weren't many people there. We sat outdoors next to the water. The food was delicious! The chef even prepared a special meal for my two year old daughter. It was incredibly sweet of him to do so. The dessert was amazing. Mostly seafood but there are a few other... More

The "raw fish" starter blew our minds. A selection of raw/ slightly marinaded room temperature prawn/ tuna/ cod/ herring WA fatty, essential heaven. Served with lightly pickled veg shavings and citrusy blobs of heaven sauce. After we shared a selection of amazing pasta dishes, washed down with €24 brut prosecco.
