Wonderful food but allow plenty of time

We have been twice, first time after a recommendation. Both times the food was excellent and the service is charming but it is also very slow. It is a family business and possibly they struggle with not quite having enough people. Does mean that if you are in a hurry or don't want to wait then it... read more

My daughter and I dined at this restaurant twice during our stay in Sorrento; initially as it was very close to where we were staying but then we had such a fabulous meal, we dined there a second time. The first time we both had the most delicious shrimp and lemon risotto ever (risotto gamberi e limone). We still dream... More

Our group of four spent a beautiful evening at this restaurant yesterday. The food was delicious, the service extremely friendly, and the setting very soul-nurturing with the water lapping gently at the beach in front of us. The price was high by Italian standards but not Canadian, about €240 for a three course meal with coffee and wine. Money well... More

After a fantastic drive along the amalfi coast we arrived in beautiful Sorrento and found this lovely restaurant on the water front looking out towards Versuvious.we were welcomed and the owner was very helpful in guiding us through the menu, as you would expect they had fantastic fresh fish along with a great selection of dishes for all tastes.

We all had a lovely time here. We were met with wonderful hospitality and the staff had a great sense of humour! We are a bit of a fussy bunch and they nailed it all round. Well presented dishes. Vegetarians catered for. We sat in the outside bit right on the beach. We had a lovely time :)

Very much enjoyed our dinner at this little place. It was recommended to us by our hotel, and we may not have spotted it otherwise tucked away round the side of the marina. There is an outdoor seating deck right on the beach, but as it was a chilly night we were sat in the restaurant itself. The food was... More

We had a group of 5 and were staying in Sant'Agnello, which is about a mile from Sorrento. The restaurant sent a car to pick us up at our hotel and to take us back after dinner. The restaurant is on the waterfront. The food was delicious, and Rosella was an excellent hostess. Loved the limoncello too!

Recommended by our hotel. The food is fine - cooked with care and some skill. The service is slow to the point of being glacial though. Waited half an hour for a drink and dinner took two hours - when we were exhausted and wanted to get on with it. This is a family concern but that means they are... More

Went to this restaurant down at the Port in Sorrento on recommendation from our hotel. Arrived just as they were opening and as we were waiting for someone to greet us a young man got off a scooter and came in with a bag.
