“Bellissimo!!!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

After booking our wedding at the Cloisters one year ago, we began the search for a venue for our reception. Don Pedro's reviews were amazing (at #1 on tripadvisor at that time, and rightly so) but I was a little sceptical that it may have been too good to be true: after having our reception there on Tuesday, I can assure you it lives up to the reviews...

From the first email, Tony and the rest of the Don Pedro family were friendly, professional and nothing was too much trouble. After arriving in Sorrento, we met with the whole family and, several glasses of prosecco later, our wedding plans were in place. The day itself ran perfectly: we didn't have to think of anything except enjoying ourselves: Don Pedro and his family were the perfect hosts.

A perfect family. A perfect location. A perfect day.

It's truly the stuff that dreams are made of. If you're thinking of booking with Don Pedro do it. You won't be disappointed!

“Our Wedding - Don Pedro's is Perfection for a Reception”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

We used TripAdvisor to choose a selection of restaurants in Sorrento to use for our wedding in Italy. As Don Pedro's has such good ratings, we thought we would see what they compared to a few others. My mum and dad were going out to Italy for their holiday so went across to Sorrento and met up with Tony (Don Pedro's son) who was incredibly kind with his hospitality. He took them to see where we would get married, the hotel we would stay at when we came out and his restaurants. He fed and wined them all day and just welcomed them into his family.

So obviously we booked up with them and Tony did nothing less than everything for our wedding for us - this included cars, flowers, favours, food, drink, entertainment, photographers, confetti - the lot!! They can even book the ceremony for you (we stupidly went through Thomas Cook to book it and regretted it massively). Tony had constant contact with us running up to the time of the wedding. He answered all of my questions, no matter how small they were and gave me all the information we needed.

The food aspect of it was amazing - they have their menus on-line where you can see the prices, however, we didn't see one that worked just right for us, so Tony said just pick foods off the different menus and let me know what you want and we will price it up. Each of our guests got the choice of 3 or 4 options per course and we just had to let Tony know in advance, a few weeks or so. We provided a list of what everyone wanted and a table plan and on the day they didnt have to ask who was having what, they just crossed referenced and brought everyone their food - genius!!

A few days after we arrived, Tony came and met us and took us up to the restaurant where we were having our reception. It was the middle one of the three which was beautiful, from one side of the restaurant you can see over to Versuvius and the other side you can see over to Capri and Ischia. Tony danced with my mum and just kept providing prosecco all day which they make themselves (delicious!) We met Don Pedro, his wife Carmella, and the rest of the family, all of whom were wonderful. They wanted to know every detail of the plan for the day and boy did it pay off.

The wedding day came and went by so fast and could not have gone any better. The whole family got every single detail for us,we had a Jaguar XF come to pick me and my dad up, a violinist played throughout the ceremony, we had some wonderful photos taken in the town centre (something only Don Pedro weddings are allowed to do apparently - I kid you not!) We then had a guitar and mandolin player at the reception and the drinks just poured and poured all day. The food was just delicious and Carmella made a cake that you wouldnt believe the size of!! Especially after a 4 course meal!

We also found the time to allow Don Pedros to arrange a wonderful trip for the entire wedding party to go over to the Isle of Capri for the day. What a wonderful trip, beautiful island, three boats for us to travel over in, tour guides on each boat and swimming in the clear sea. Amazing.

All in all, I would not hesitate to recommend Don Pedro's. It has got brilliant reviews for a reason, they did so much for us and threw in some wonderful surprises I wont ruin for you but you will not be disappointed. Book them and I guarantee, if your wedding is half as magical as ours was,you understand why people say it is the happiest day of your life.

“Magnifico !”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Just got back from our sons wedding in sorrento and Don pedro is the ultimate wedding planner. Firstly he meets with the bride and groom as soon as they arrive in sorrento, he provides all they wish for and suggests more. Everything down to the very fine details are done to perfection, even the sunset was on cue... If you are thinking of getting married in sorrento, look no further as this outfit know what they are doing and are very easy to deal with. Don pedro and his family made sure my son and new daughter in law had the wedding they had dreamt about and more. Oh and the food and wine were superb too.

“Our wedding with Don Pedro 31/7/14”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Once we decided on Sorrento for our wedding I researched restaurants for the meal after. We quickly realised from the reviews that Don Pedro was going to be the one. We emailed him and from the beginning they were helpful and put us at ease. When we arrived in Sorrento we went through all the tiny detail we had emailed about and found their costs very competitive. Tony (Don Pedro son) picked us up and took us on a little tour of Sorrento and showed us the wedding venue and reception area. We met Don Pedro and he welcomed us, meeting his family and having a meal with them. The wedding day came and we were calm as we knew Don Pedro had everything under control. Every detail and timing he had covered to make the day flow well and be as special as possible. The wedding venue was spectacular and exclusive just for our guests. Food, drink etc all lovely. We had a perfect day and thank Don Pedro for his involvement. He made the day very personal and we weren't just another wedding. We both would highly recommend Don Pedro and his wedding venue. Amazing! Mr and Mrs Beneduce

“A truly wonderful wedding day”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

After hours of research looking for somewhere to have are wedding reception in Sorrento we found Don Pedro, after reading lots of his reviews we decided to contact him. The following day Tony , Don Pedro's son replied and after speaking to him on the phone we booked our wedding for 3rd June 2014, from the day we booked everything was arranged by email with out and hassle Tony was always very quick to reply with the smallest of queries.
On arrival to Sorrento Tony came and pick us up to go to the venue which was fantastic, they greeted us with Champagne we talked through everything and then we had a wonderful lunch served us, also tasting Don Pedro's prosecco and wines. Then Tony took us around Sorrento to show us the Cloisters where we were getting married.
We booked most thing with Tony from airport transfers, wedding cars, guitar and mandolin player at the ceremony and reception, helium balloons, wedding cake even for the reception I took with me all my own extras for the table - name places with seating plan, diamond stones to sprinkle on table and lace to go around the table flower arrangements which I emailed pictures to them how I wanted them and everything was perfect.
On the big day everything went perfectly it was just magical and the restaurant looked amazing just how we dreamed of. There were a few surprises along the way which was lovely.
The food was fantastic all the guests commented how wonderful the food.
We took our own music on an ipod which they just plugged into the music system Tony was a great DJ to.
All of are 29 guests said it was a wonderful day in every way the Pedro family are lovely people and made every thing very special.
The next day we went to Capri which we booked with them, again it was faultless, Carmella did a great job of being are tour guide and looking after us, the lunch we had on the boat lovely to.

Thank you Don Pedro and family for making our wedding such a wonderful day to remember.
Hope to see you next year on are 1st wedding anniversary.

Paul and Amanda Foster.
