We stopped in for a quick bite and enjoyed the scene on the street. The dessert was delicious and we got a bottle of local wine (unfortunately not the sulfite free in a carafe) but still delicious! We didn't order a meal, as were weren't hungry, however, it appeared to be a bit pricey.

hi . We decided to serve you a dessert and wine from our selection of 2300 Italian wines. at the end of it, without tasting the quality of the food you say , that it seems to you pricey. A next time, go to eat a dessert in a turistic bar , like there are many in the square.... More

Dined here on the first night in Sorrento- first impressions very good visually, when the food was served it was a totally different story and we wished we had walked on. flavours of the meal overcome with a strange and disgusting orange sauce.

This was the most expensive place we went to whilst in Sorrento. Having said that, the service, food and wine was of an extremely high standard. You also get free extras, water, bread that they make themselves, and chef's amuse bouche which, when you weigh out, turns the whole experience into an affordable one. The wine list, or rather, wine... More

The wine was perfectly paired with excellent t-bone steak, both reasonably priced. The service was very efficient too.

Beautiful food, great staff, fantastic wine however be prepared to pay and extra 5-10 euros compared to everywhere else for your meal. The food is great but is small portions! Would highly recommend for couples want a a really nice chilled out night!

Located in the main square it was slightly elevated so a great spot to people watch. One family own 3 restuarants all directly next to eachother and offer different menus and all at various prices. This was the pricey one but when you compare to a meal in the UK it was actually still very reasonable. On arrival we were... More

The restaurant is situated in the central part of Sorento. It is really pity that the service is unbelievable bad. We waited for hours, repeating the orders several times. The food was no good also. Better avoid this place

Had the best Marharita pizza in the world, the tomato sauce was home made with pieces of tomato, not sweet but full of flavour. The service was quick, spoke good English and were very pleasant.

I can not understand why this restaurant is not rated higher. It is run by two brothers who are fully involved and can not do enough for you. The wine list is huge. The largest I have ever seen and the two brothers are very knowledgeable about their wines. The food is exceptional. It is not cheap but it is... More

We stopped here on our way back from a trip to Amalfi, and before returning to our cruise ship. It was very busy ,being a Sunday, but the waiters were very helpful and found us a table at the front. It was a wonderful place to watch the locals go by. Our chilled beers were most needed. It looked as... More
