After I arrived and was given a menu, the waiter offered me a glass of Champaigne and followed that with a couscous salad. This was before I had even ordered. I had a half bottle of Pendido Fiano di Avellino, which was perfectly acceptable. The main course, Neopolitan fish soup was fantastic! It was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious and quite filling. The service was impeccable - the waiter and staff very attentive. Overall a wonderful experiment and a great way to end my visit to Sorrento.

We visited this restaurant after reading the reviews which had been good overall.
We chose the meat tasters menu with accompanied wines. It was a good choice all the many dishes we had where explained in great detail by our waiter and each dish was mouthwateringly good.
Presentation was a winner and the attention to detail was high as was the cost, we paid 55 euros a head but it was worth it.

We didn't look at the menu before sitting down, and this 'moderately' priced restaurant ended up a little out of our price range - plan on 100 euro per person if you sit down to a full meal. However - the waitstaff (and here, I see the genius of the cover-charge system over our native tipping system) were completely obliging when we asked to split one meal between two people and were happy to bring extra plates. The crudo appetizer was really nothing special; save your crudo-money for Veneto, but the lamb shank was absolutely out of this world delicious. A great view over the piazza, also.

Imagine yourself in Sorrento, 80 years ago. White table towels, old silver forks and knives, fine porcelan, cristal glasses,etc. Good service, entrees, and fine wine. Several options of tasteful food, seved in a old fashion way. At the end, a great dessert with a fantastic Limoncello. In this friendly ambient, with good humor from the waiters, there are no more words to explain this place.

We recently stayed in Sorrento for 10 days and ate here twice because the first time was so memorable. The menu is not what I would call traditional italian, but every dish we tasted (and their were six of us) so we tasted quite a few, was excellent. They had a duck starter which had a expresso sauce which sounds a bit strange but tastes great. The pork on the main was excellent and if you go to this restaurant, let the owner pick the desserts for you, they are all mouth wateringly good. The wine list is extensive and the food was excellent. One word of warning though, when they offer you some complementary drinks after the meal avoid the nut grappa - it will blow your head off! I would highly recommend this restaurant. I cant work out how this place could get a bad review, it is a great location, the food was great, the price was good and the service excellent.
