We were wandering the area looking for a place to have dinner, and found this restaurant off an alley, a little off the beaten path. it was still early, and we asked if we should make a reservation, and the waiter said he didn't think so as it was kind of a slow time. We returned later on and the place was packed, which we took as a good sign. We were able to get the last open outdoor table. The waiter suggested a nice local bottle of wine that we enjoyed. We shared an order of cannelloni, and our main courses were excellent, with large portions that included a vegetable and potato croquettes. We were very satisfied and enjoyed our meal very much.

We dined outside at La Basilica.We were in Sorrento on our honeymoon and discovered the restaurant by chance one evening.First of all the atmosphere was amazing.It is situated down one of Sorrento's charming narrow streets and you can dine inside. However it was a beautiful evening.My partner had Chicken Cacciatore and I had the lasagne.Both dishes were to die for.The other reviewers are right re the flatbread squares that are served pre dinner.We both had the cheesecake,equally as delicious.The staff were very pleasant and welcoming.We made a little friend in the shape of Antonio the cat but he didn't get in the way at all and was a very endearing addition to our night.
This restaurant was so good,we went back another twice so three visits during our week's stay.
We would highly recommend for couples and families alike.

I am in the Navy and we made a recent port call to Naples. Took the train down to Sorrento one afternoon for some shopping. Found this restaurant in one of the small alleys off the main road. They have both indoor and outdoor seating but we chose to sit inside since it was raining just a little bit. The restaurant was immaculate. Very clean, very good presentation. My group of five was treated like royalty. We did not speak Italian but the staff was very accomodating. We each ordered an appetizer and a main dish along with a drink. The staff brought us out an additional appetizer compliments of the chef. At the end of the meal they also brought us a small drink of lemoncello complimentary.

The food was by far the best that I ate during my entire trip to Italy. The salads were very fresh. Simple, fresh ingredients. Exciting tastes. I ordered the Gnochi as the main dish. Very delicious. They also provided us with a couple different types of fresh bread during the course of the meal.

Highly recommended if you are in Sorrento. The location, food, and staff were all well above industry standards.

La Basilica is a great barn of a restaurant right off a main square--casual, noisy, full of happy diners, and a delicious and fun place to spend an evening. The pastas are especially good, and the little dish of "burnt" flatbread squares that just appears is a treat. The wine list is good and also reasonable. You don't absolutely have to make a reservation, but it's a good idea to do so. Or, if you go a bit later in the evening, there's more room (and less noise).

We really enjoyed the location of this place and the staff were extremely accommodating. My Mom ordered something not on the menu and they said they would make it up for her. Their homemade pasta special was so good, I ordered it both times I visited. And to top it off, the serenading guitar player was an added bonus and we requested he sing happy birthday to my Uncle back in the states on the phone and he obliged and gave us a CD to take back to him. Overall a great choice and recommended by locals....and you must try the PROFITEROLES for dessert if you like chocolate.
