Before boarding our boat to the Withsundays we went there for lunch, we had a Marinara Pizza and some Dips with toasted bread which was very good and paid 37 Dollars. Had to ask for the table to be cleaned - apart from that all good. Would not go there for a nice dinner though.

45 min for an order to arrive well after customers who arrived after received their meals. AND, before the table right next to us did not even receive their meals in the whole time we were there...even asking wait staff how long it would be. It not only made us feel uncomfortable, but we were hungry and it was just terrible to see the 4 or more wait staff with nothing to do, standing in the corner chatting while there was no food to be seen other than pizzas for people who ordered their food much later than several tables waiting.

This place has great atmosphere and is very popular, especially with the yachties. Italian food was very good and not too expensive.
Good wines and beers and the cocktails looked fab. Music most nights added a happy note. Great place to watch the sunset.

Good good food, large portions sizes. Outside seating and there was live music. Lively bar downstairs with restaurant and lovely view upstairs. Staff could have a bit happier!

We visited Sorrento when we were sailing out of Abel Point Marina on a yacht charter. It's a great place to visit on your first night to save cooking aboard the boat. It was so good we ate there again on out last night aboard in the marina.
It is a lively place, on the nights we visited there was live music downstairs and there was a great atmosphere. As you would expect many of the customers are from the boating fraternity and many of the staff from the various yacht charter companies based here seemed to frequent it.
It is not fine dining, nor does it pretend to be, but the meat lovers pizza I had on both occasions was the best pizza I've ever had anywhere, including Italy!
The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the service was great. The prices are very reasonable too (for Australia).
