It’s just a few blocks off the Main Street, which allows for a more low key and peaceful night. Complimentary champagne and polenta started off the night. Tables were close and friendly so we could make friends with those next to us.

If you are looking for something besides pasta, Bistro 86 had great fish and steak options. I recommend the steak! It was juicy and covered in cheese... yummy!

The wine selection was good and the service was friendly. It was a lovely place for low key and delicious meal.

We visited 86 Bistro for dinner during our recent trip to Sorrento. We had pre-booked a table and on arrival it took a few minutes for one of the staff members to acknowledge us and seat us at our table. We were handed menus and a complimentary glass of sparkling wine each and some polenta, which tasted amazing! This was a nice touch. It took a while for our order to be taken and we had to ask twice for our bottle of wine that we had ordered. About 5 minutes after ordering, we were told that the Fiorentina Steak that my partner had ordered was no longer available; not a good start. The food overall was good; we had the taster platter to start and a pasta dish each for our main. The restaurant is quite small however all of the tables were full; whilst the staff were clearly working very hard, the service was slow and a little unfriendly. Given the wide choice of restaurants on Sorrento, we wouldn't return.

Went here for dinner after recommendations on trip advisor. Were though dissapointed and would not go back for a second dinner. Appreciated the welcome drink of sparkling wine and polenta which tasted really good. However the pasta with mushrooms did not taste anything, even if I added salt and pepper. My boyfriends risotto was also ok but no sensation of flavours.. The service was good with very friendly staff!

We didn’t like that the restaurant had two tv inside with volume, destroyed the cosy atmospehre a bit! Would definately sit outside instead for best experience of the enviroment/atmospehre

We visited here last night and the atmosphere was brilliant along with the food. The menu is not massive however the food they do serve is incredible. I cannot recommend this place enough for food.
