"A taste of Italy" .....over looking the sea

We did a hop on hop off bus tour leaving from Sorrento and decided to stop at this restaurant overlooking the sea. We had a lovely seat with a view and the smell of the sea. Along with that I had the best cantenlloni that I had ever tasted. For me, it was the best pasta dish that I had... read more

Disappointing. Went for a drink after a meal that we had else where, staff was extremely rude and we wished we hadn't gone there: very disappointing compared to all the friendly service that we had elsewhere!

Waiter was extremely rude when ordering our meal. We were not even able to order what we wanted. Our food came all at the wrong time and didn't ask if he could get us something else. Took plates away before they were finished. He out right refused to give us separate bills.

We were a group of nine people eating on a Sunday night at the end of the traditional tourist season. We hadn't pre-booked so arrived early to ensure we could get a table. As it turned out the restaurant wasn't that busy and we even got a table outside on the terrace, overlooking the sea, which was a real bonus.... More

The owner and staff are lovely and nothing was too much bother. Divine, crispy pizzas, perfectly cooked pasta and expertly cooked chicken and fish. Probably the best restaurant tin this little, bustling village. Prices were reasonable - 6 Euros for a pizza - but, as with nearly every restaurant, there is a cover charge which I don't mind for adults... More

We had dinner here on a sunny evening. The selection of dishes was a Pizza, Calamari with vegetables and plain pasta for our two year old. The food was average and the Calamari came as a very small portion compared to other restaurants in the area. We experienced the service as friendly, but in a very superficial way. Surprise came...

Delicious mixed starters, especially the deep fried courgette flowers and melanzane parmigiana. Fabulous view and friendly service. Would happily eat here again and again!

Arriving in Massa Lubrense for lunch we wanted a table with a front line view of the coast. The signs for Restaurant Il Cantuccio are pretty much front line as you enter the main square. After taking the steps down to the restaurant we noticed just 2 tables occupied with a total of 3 diners. With approx. 25+ tables empty... More
