Wonderfull location and excellent service and perfect menu! This restaurant is really super! We enjoyed the fresh tunafish, ansjovis with smoked mozzarella and the grilled fish! The home made desserts were splendid ! We felt like a king and a queen to be their guests 😃

Described as a Romantic restaurant this would have to be the most expensive view in town, definitely the most expensive meal we have had in Italy. We chose this restaurant as it was close to our accomodation.the 1km drive down a steep winding road was scenic but a little scary. We were the only diners there for the entire time.... More

We stopped by here on our way through town and had the most fabulous lunch experience. We pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves and settled in for a beautiful 3 course lunch with desert. Each dish that was brought to the table was artistically presented and the flavors were fresh and wonderful. Marco took excellent care of us and... More

Our Tour of the Amalfi Coast guide suggested Silenzio Cantatore for lunch on our way back to Sorrento. We didn't know what to expect. They do not start serving lunch until 12:30 PM but were welcomed when we arrived at 12:15 PM. We had the beautiful restaurant and amazing view all to ourselves. Chef Mario made some suggestions and away... More

What can I say? The location, service and food was excellent. For almost twenty years I have dreamt of visiting Sorrento with the simple intention of dining in a lovely restaurant, in beautiful surroundings with great food. Just recently I got my chance as I was staying in nearby Amalfi (approx. 1.2hrs by car) and Restaurant Silenzio Cantatore couldn't have... More

Our tour guide recommended we have lunch at his personal favorite and he hit a home run. The restaurant is charming with a spectacular view. Food was great and staff was wonderful. After limo cellos we took a plung in the water below jumping off cliffs and taking beautiful family pictures. Would love to return soon.

The Silenzio Cantatore was just what I was looking for - authentic, absolutely not touristy, great food, wonderful professional service (love Ervin, in particular), and unbelievable view. Chef Mario Aiello is a star in the kitchen, turning out updated versions of classic Amalfi Coast cuisine. It's a adventure to get there, down down a winding road. You will be rewarded... More

My husband and I stayed in a villa near by this restaurant and it was recommended by the owner of the villa for lunch when we had inquired about somewhere "special" to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was sooooo good, we still keep talking about it! The restaurant is set in a very scenic spot, set below a cliff... More
