We had seen the Rick Steeves doco on this restaurant and were so happy when we found it when out walking in Sorrento. We booked a table for the following night and it was an experience of a lifetime. From the greeting by the Chef to the delicious and beautifully presented meal, everything was first class. The atmosphere is wonderful.... More

We were in sorrento around almost the end of October . Its the best timing. This restaurant is easy to book. It was a nice experience. Service was top notch. Food was excellent. Price reasonable, nothing out of the range. I think is a must visit for a food lovers.

We visited for my husbands 40th birthday while we were on holiday. It was a fabulous evening from start to finish. The food was exquisite and the wine pairing was something else. The staff were very attentive without being overpowering. The chef came out to see how everyone was enjoying their food. It was expensive but you get what you... More

Very happy with our dining experience, food was excellent, went 'I trust you' surprised it was all fish, but love fish so that's ok.... Waiters are excellent and very happy to engage which is a great credit to any restaurant. Surprised that the chef spent most of the night sitting in the corner instead of in the kitchen.....

Service was amazing. Waiter paired wine with our meal selections. Food was unbelievably amazing. We ate outside and the atmosphere was very nice. Great lighting and quiet. A little expensive but worth it.

Seriously, unbelievable! Had the "trust me" five course meal - each course better than the last. Also, wait staff were superb and did a great job coordinating with my wife's meal of an appetizer and entree - complete an extra place setting each time so she could taste and we were both equally involved and engaged with this meal. Based... More

We ordered the "I Trust You" five course tasting with wine. Food selection from region paired with great Italian wines. Service was attentive with great explanations of each course including wine. Fine dining with limited seating. I will definitely return.

Absolutely delicious. I ordered the "I trust You" five course tasting which allows the chef to choose the dishes. This was a fun way to dine and I was not disappointed in the least - each dish was beautifully prepared, flavorful and unique. The restaurant is small, so reservations are a must. Our service was friendly (like all of Italy)... More

Six of us had dinner here last night. Normally reservations are advised but Michael (our waiter) located a table for us in the upstairs dining room and the ambience and atmosphere was superb. The food was exquisite and attention provided by Michael to each diner was above and beyond our expectation. Highly recommend.

We had a great meal and sat in the outside portion of the restaurant. It’s an interesting place to sit, because you are basically in the walkway from one street to the main square. After reviewing the menu, there is an “I Trust You Menu” where the chef makes what he wants and you can pick between 5 and 7... More
