We ate here a couple of times as was a short distance from our Hotel. (Prestige)
The service was excellent and the restaurant really lovely - tables beautifully presented and the ambience relaxed.
We were treated to some local specialities as well as our meals which were excellent.
Menu offers a varied choice and there is something for everyone. Also we would highly recommend the local Vino.
The staff go out of their way to make eating here such an enjoyable experience and we hope to return next year.

Really good attentive service from the owner and his wife and great food with a few extras thrown in on the house. Four of us all had different main courses and starters and all excellent quality and good presentation. Were staying at the Hotel Prestige and this is agood recomendation from them

Il rifugio was recommended to us by hotel prestige, where we were staying. It was our final night of the holiday and we wish we had discovered this place earlier!! (As mentioned in several other reviews- hotel prestige offers free shuttle service to and from the restaurant).
The welcome and hospitality we were met with was absolutley fantastic! The owners (Antonio and Maria I believe?!) were the kindest, friendliest and warmest people we met during our entire stay in Italy. Myself and my husband were treated like VIPs and the service from all the staff was superb. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with a really cosy and traditional feel, and gorgeously decorated! The menu is fab- lots of choice! When ordering our meals, I struggled to decide between 2 dishes... I asked for recommendation and was told..."you don't have to decide- if you like the sound of both of them, we'll bring you half and half!!". ( I was only charged for 1 main meal). Each course was absolutley delicious and it was clear that they use only the freshest produce. The wine list was AMAZING and we were lucky enough to be sat next to the wine 'cellar' which was like been on the edge of heaven for myself!! The wine we chose was very reasonably priced and complimented our meals perfectly! After our meal were brought several after dinner 'digestifs' ( all 'on the house') which were also delicious! The bill was extremely reasonable for the huge amount we managed to eat and drink throughout the evening!! Again, I have to mention the sincere kindness and friendliness of the owners who made us feel like one of their family! If we could give this place 10 stars, we would!
This place is a MUST for anyone visiting the sorrento area!

Had such a good meal the first time, had to go back again. Not only was the food and service excellent, the owners went out of their way to be helpful, picking us up and dropping us back at our hotel when we were late back from day trip and missed the shuttle.
The restaurant was spotlessly clean and the food all freshly cooked - the best meals we had in Italy.

A great kitchen and menu, very service oriented personal/waitresses. Maybe the best gnocchi ever and the recommended local red wine was marvelous!! The price was good even cheap and the taste of all courses was brilliant. Can be recommended to all who are looking for very good Italian food, good service with decent price.
