We got married on 06/06/14 at San Francesco Cloisters and following our wedding ceremony we had our wedding meal at Ristorante O'Parruchiano. On arrival into the restaurant we were blown away with how beautiful all our area in the restaurant had been decorated. Our top table seated 8 people and our other guests were on tables of 6.
The menu had a very good variety. We struggled to choose what we wished to order as everything sounded so delicious! Our guests got treated to a 4 course wedding meal including a delicious traditional lemon wedding cake. It was so tasty. The starters included many seafood options and plenty of pasta dishes.
The main meal consisted of choices such as lamb and fillet steak. The seafood pasta was truly the best pasta I have ever tasted and we eat out regularly at many Italian restaurants! The staff were very friendly and professional with special mention to our waiter Nicola and especially Tina the owner who was so helpful and made our time at O'Parrucchiano such a special and fantastic experience. We would definitely return when we go back to Sorrento!

We have been going to this restaurant for a few years and whenever we are in Sorrento have to pay a visit.
You could walk past this place every day as the unassuming doorway doesn't give the impression of the magical location inside, it set amidst lemon trees, fairy lights and old traditional furniture and fittings.
That said it has one of the best atmospheres for a meal you could wish for.
We first ate here at a friends wedding reception some years ago and from then on always want to return.
The food and service are always second to none and the menu has something for all tastes.
You can always judge a restaurant by seeing how many "locals" use it and here you will find many Italians so there must be something good about it, that and the fact it has been trading under the same family for generations.

We had diner in the restaurant on the first night of our holiday. Since this restaurant has a liaison with our five star hotel La Favorita in Sorrento (which is absolutely sublime) and was recommended by the hotel staff we had high expectations.

The restaurant is gigantic, huge, big, very suitable for large groups or family events and less suitable for a couple. Still they manage to create a nice atmosphere, especially when you can sit outside under the lemon threes and romantical lights in the trees. That is a positive remark on this restaurant.

Then our food arrived, our waiter was very busy and was not in the mood to talk to us or to wait on us, just doing his job, nothing more and he certainly did not look like he enjoyed his job. The food on our plate suited the enormous restaurant, no love for Italian cuisine there. it was made way before it was served and in large quantities, it did not look very fresh.

A very disappointing experience.

We have just left a wonderful dinner orchestrated by Luigi and Carmine - simply incredible!

To kick off the evening, we had three unique anti pastas and they were very tasty.

Carmine then recommended a lovely dry red Italian wine and Luigi subsequently prepared at table side, an incredible pair of filets - clearly some of the best steaks we have had in a long time. My daughter had the lobster ravioli and she very much enjoyed it (along with some of our filets),

We finished off the evening with crepes Suzette prepared by Luigi again at table side - amazing! He is a lovely "entertainer". We followed up the crepes with Limoncellos and now off to bed.

We felt so good about our dining experience that we wanted to share immediately.

Beautiful surroundings and the biggest lemons you've ever seen. Ask for your steak to be cooked very well done. We asked for medium and even then it was still very rare. The meal was fantastic though and somewhere we'd love to return to.
