“The nicest restaurant in Sorrento”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

This little restaurant is a must go when you go to visit Sorrento. It is beautifully located in the little harbor with a nice view over the sea. The food is fantastic and the service is super friendly. The son of the owner drove us back to the hotel after dinner which was very nice as it is otherwise a steep walk uphill.

“Very welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We ate here last night and had a truly great dining experience. Before our antipasti arrived we'd already been given three different types of beautiful fresh breads. We then had first, second and dessert. Following this we had coffee which came with even more food. It was all delicious, and the waiters were extremely nice. The area is really quite and sits peacefully by the water. When looking for the venue TA directed me to the wrong spot. It's down the bottom of the hill, on the right beside the jetty to Capri. Magnificent.

“Lovely setting despite being the day after the floods!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The evening started with Mario picking us up on time from our hotel. There had Bennett floods the evening before so it was very quiet on the waterfront, but the stating is so nice and the food was excellent it didn't matter
Would definitely recommend the place for food and service

“Cannot get any closer to the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

The location of the restaurant is so close to the water it was spectacular. I loved the location and enjoyed sitting outside at the end of the evening enjoying the views. The family running the restaurant is wonderful and they were able to spend a good amount of time with us as there were not many other customers when we arrived.

The food was very good and we had so many courses with each one having the same quality and wonderful taste. At the end of the evening, the owner's son drove us back to our hotel so my father-in-law did not have to walk as there were a million (or it seemed) stairs that we went down to get to the restaurant. I could not imagine climbing back up all those stairs after the meal we had.

“Michelin standard!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

The owner/chef here worked at a 2* Michelin restaurant and this shows in his food - its excellent. Some of the best ravioli I have tasted. Its a family run establishment and service can be a bit sketchy if they are busy. This restaurant is situated on the water at Marina Piccolo so lovely location and they will collect and return you to your hotel which is a bonus.
