Thanks to some great Trip Advisor reviews and proximity to our hotel, we took a chance on this place. The food was like getting a delicious home-cooked meal from your Italian grandmother. A nice little taverna tucked away on a quiet street, definitely a great place for a low-key uncomplicated meal. We ended up eating here twice during our stay in Sorrento, and both times enjoyed the food and the company. The staff is very friendly--we went just before busy season and spent time talking to the family who owns the place. We also learned the difference between saying 'i'm finished with my meal' and 'i'm about to die' (very important!).

the title says it all. it might not look like much and hardly seats any people but the food is probably the best you will have in the area. and the service is freindly and relaxed, but make sure you keep your teenage daughter from falling in love with the waiter!

Ate here one night, I had pasta, which was delicious, and felt home made. Would have eaten here again, but I think it has now closed for the season.

We absolutely loved this tiny family run place. Mamma does the cooking and it is wonderful. My husband is Italian and couldn't have been happier eating here. Yes, sometimes you may wait a little, but isn't that what vacations are for? They always end the meal with a glass of limoncello served to your table. It is not a classy place but very good food. We met the same people there 2 nights in a row.

Donna Rosa is a family run restaurant - mother cooks, son Vincenzo is the manager/head waiter/ bartender, young brother Christian helps out with serving, and father keeps an eye on the football score. Very nice family, friendly and welcoming. The food was great as we're the negronis, the wine and the after dinner drink of limoncello. We ate here twice during our stay in Sant'Agnello and highly recommend it for the excellent food, good prices and the wonderful family who owns and operates it.
