“Clams to die for!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

My family and I travelled to Sorrento in July 2012, and we decided to eat at Il Borgo one night. It was so good, so we ate there TWICE! We were only in Sorrento for 3 nights! It is by far my favorite restaurant in the world, as the pasta and seafood is delicious. Even more, the clams are the best I've ever eaten. They are very flavorful, and seemed very fresh. I would definitely recommend Il Borgo, if you want authentic Italian seafood!

I rarely dine in a restaurant 2 nights in a row and have never done it 3 nights in a row until Il Borgo. We were staying just up the hill and wandered down one evening after less than optimal meals in the central part of Sorrento. We were warmly greeted by the staff and treated to an incredible view of the bay of Naples. The sea bass was extremely good as were the eggplant, fried sardines etc. We enjoyed dinner so much, we made reservations for my birthday two nights later, and Tony made sure he had reserved the best table in the house for us. The next night we were exhausted after touring all day so we wandered back down to Il Borgo for some simple pizza and local wine. Again, a perfect experience with great pizza, and Paula's attentive service. So, night 3 for my birthday, we come into the restaurant and Tony and Paula greeted us like family. The meal again was excellent with great grilled meats, seafood pasta, salads, etc. As dinner was winding down, the house music turned to a birthday tune and Paula comes out with a wonderful lemon birthday cake. It just doesn't get any better than this! Dining is not just about the food, but the interaction with the staff, the warmth and the ambiance. Il Borgo e' perfecto!

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

The food was excellent, even for those of us who don't eat fish. Service was perfect. Little treats brought to our table by an attentive staff. This is a restaurant that treats customers as friends.

“Total package -food, service and views”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

A delightful family-run restaurant perched on the hillside with exquisite views of Sorrento and Bay of Naples. Excellent grilled fish, crisp salads, tasty pizzas, great pasta, and delicious desserts topped off with efficient and friendly service. Il Borgo scores high marks on all aspects
