I fell in love with this place when holidaying in Sorrento. The beer is good (a range of Peroni, including Gran Riserva, was enough to sway me. The owners are very accommodating and, if you try a little bit of Italiano, are very warm and friendly. I never tried the food here but I think it is a top spot... More

We were walking from Marina Grande up to town when there was a shower. Called in here to shelter and spent a good couple of hours drinking and watching the world go by. Extremely reasonable prices and great coffee. Loved it!

Weird place set back on the Marina Grande. Watch out for the lady outside 5 sisters. She scared me. Can't imagine what the other four are like. Quirky design touches enhanced by 60's comedy music. Not entirely sure if this is irony or heartfelt. Whatever, the ladies are lovely & service is great. Go visit & experience this charming sea... More

A hole in the wall pub with a difference. Pleasant music of the past with a wide choice of drinks and great coffees. Overlooks the harbour but has a strange ambience with unusual decoration. Good service ad well so totally enjoyable experience.
