We stayed locally and managed to eat a Zio Sam maybe 5-6 times, tried almost everything and what can I say! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Finger licking good.
If your after a true Italian Experience, at very reasonable prices (this is where the locals eat) then go to Zio Sam.
Make sure you try the Finochettio (alcoholic drink made by the chef Antonino) and my favorite dish had to be the Don Pasquale, which is a local pasta dish.
The View, the food, the people. Enough to make you stay an extra day. We did!

A group of us were staying in the area and this was the best pace we ate at about 5 times during the week! It's great atmosphere for couples - romantic views of the coast. Then they are so accommodating for big groups, or even children.
The price indicated here is also too high, the actual prices are lower but the quality is just amazing! We tried almost everything on the menu! A must-do place when you're in the area. Even if you're staying in the main town it's easy to get to by bus, just tell the bus driver you need to g to Zio Sam - everyone knows this place! Enjoy

Situated at the top of a narrow, winding mountain road, Zio Sam offers outstanding food and service along with spectacular views across the Bay of Naples. Out starter of stuffed zucchini flowers and bruschetta was tasty and freshly prepared. Accompanied by a glass of chilled Prosecco as the sun sank into the sea, the evening could not have been more romantic.We both choose pizze to follow and were not disappointed. The frutti di mare which topped my delicious pizza were fresh and plentiful. The only disappointment was that we discovered Zio Sam on our last night in Piano di Sorrento. Had we been there sooner we would certainly have gone again.

This is th best restaurant I have ever been to. Fresh organic food from owner's garden and it's all prepared for you within the timely manner. Everyone speaks good English so there are no misunderstandings. The service is excellent and the waiters are always willing to help you.
Food is amazing and is so much of it. Don't over do on antipasti make sure you will keep the space for 1st and 2nd plate as well as desert. Amazing experience- thank you Zio Sam

Off the tourist track this great restaurant offered excellent Italian food at very reasonable prices. The restaurant also had a car pick us up, and return us to our hotel. I think this is a fairly common set-up which probably explains why there aren't many taxis in the area.
