Il sombrero is located in a nice area, directly on the coast street. It has a beautiful big garden which creates a nice atmosphere. Service is very attentive and sweet. However good is rather average. Overall it was a nice experience

We have chosen this place thanks to TripAdvisor and actually it has been a good choice.

Good sea food and cheap.

We were five and we took 6 big starters of fish + one risotto with fish + 5 main sea food dishes + 3 coffees + 3 liquors. Total 28€ each


Very good!!!!

After a poor experience the night before, our hopes for a good meal in Amantea were slim. However, based upon the recommendation of the receptionist at our hotel we went to Il Sombrero and could not have been more pleased.
We arrived early and were the first table to be seated but the room was full when we left, with a mix of locals and tourists. The room is nice if not particularly fancy, but does have a good view of the sea and we were treated to a nice sunset. While dining we saw the manager (owner?) go outside for a delivery from a fish truck, so we knew the food was very fresh.
Our server, Fabio, was pleased to have Americans and the opportunity to speak english, which he did rather well. He guided us with our selections, from appetizers through dessert.
We started with a sardine appetizer and an antipasto plate. My grilled bass was delicious, lightly seasoned but allowed the flavor of the fish to come through. Others at the table had various pasta dishes (gnocchi, ravioli) and each was very pleased. We shared 2 items from the dessert cart, both were very good.
Highly recommended.

A really lovely restaurant recommended by our taxi driver. It didn't disappoint - except maybe that they don't fire up the oven for pizza for lunch, but that's not unusual... shame though as it was my last chance to have a pizza but we were there for lunch. I had parma and melone and the biggest portion arrived and fantastic it was too. Hubbie had insalata di frutti di mare - very generous portion and delicious octopus, mussels and other yummies. Then more seafood salad - I had the spaghetti di vongole veraci - fab!

Because it was the end of the season there was not much choice in Amantea, but Il Sombrero was very good and we went there several times. You can sit semi outside with a nice view over the sea. Good food, antipasti and fish. Pizza in the evening. Great dolce. Ask for Fabio, an English speaking waiter, who can give you good advise.
