We visited for lunch, as the menu looked good, with reasonable prices. Setting is nice, and warm etc. We ordered 2 glasses of wine, and water, Seafood Risotto and a Pizza.
No Pizza available until later -no problem, my wife ordered Pasta with Mushroom.
All ok so far until my Seafood Risotto arrived. Now I LOVE seafood Risotto, and I'm a guy who takes great pride in clearing a plate, but this was terrible. "Al Dente" doesn't really describe it...
We concluded that there was Rice added to an already pre-prepared risotto and it wasn't cooked enough. I ate three quarters of it, but just gave up. No member of staff came within range of me until we had left our napkins down. The Pasta was fine.
When the waiter collected the dishes, he did as "you enjoy?" probably expecting the usual answer that it was fine. I told him "No, it was Al Dente, not nice" "Oh, you don't like Al Dente?" -he couldn't get away fast enough. (
Still full price, €32 bill in total. Maybe it was just a kitchen error, but we left very disappointed.
There was a tripadvisor sticker on the door, asking to rate, so here it is.

We've been to this restaurant a few times over 4 years. Every time it slides further down the scale for us. This time was no different.

In the past, I would recommend this to couples looking for a nice, quiet dinner. It's now more appropriate for families that are looking for a place that can serve fries and pizza for the kids and something for adults.

The food quality is low by Italian standards and certainly in Sorrento. Service and atmosphere are fine - as long as you like lots of kids.

There are many better options than this.

We had a brief stop in Sorrento and rather than following our bus crowd to the recommended restaurant, we decided to take one of the scenic side streets and venture on our own. We came across this little restaurant that was charming on the inside and outside. Our waiter was very friendly and our meals were tasty and hot. We enjoyed a lovely antipasti platter and a margarita pizza. Of course, these are the traditional oven fired pizzas on thin crust unlike the loaded American versions of what we call pizza. If we ever get to that corner of the world again, we would not hesitate to go there for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant which is in a very small street off Corso Italia is a very welcoming place..great staff and a super menu authentic,and very good value. The minestrone soup on the Ante Pasti menu is wonderful!
