Good wholesome Italian food. Great atmosphere, busy but well organised and the service was quick too. Not haute cuisine but great for families and quests with a good appetite. I would recommend it.

Exceedingly average food for at a high price. An older blonde woman who can only assume was the owner/manager just wouldn't stop talking the whole time despite me and my partner obviously looking for a quiet date. My gnocchi was quite tasteless and completely drowned out by the smell of my partners seafood dish. Amateur staff who knew nothing about... More

Most charismatic owner ever! Engaged with us - smiley and bubbly. Homemade pasta was impeccable. Great little garden in the sun too. Not cheap, but worth every penny...

We went there for dinner for a special birthday and ordered antipasto which was lovely and kids meals were fine... Then came our main meals which was spaghetti marinara, prawn linguini and the seafood degustation all were terrible. The pastas had no flavour and the seafood meal smelt terrible and the cooked tuna was so over cooked that you couldn't... More

While I know that Sorrento over the holiday period is packed to the rafters with people looking to eat out, that is no excuse for the quality of food and service we received at this restaurant. An attempt had obviously been made to squeeze as many tables in as possible so that we were virtually touching the people at the... More

I never have been one to leave a review for a restaurant. I just had dinner here and feel robbed. Almost everything on the menu was more on the bill and when we attempted to explain this to the manager we were made to feel stupid and have money thrown at us. Honestly couldn't believe it. I've worked throughout hospitality... More

What a lovely surprise it was to dine here, especially after reading negative reviews. Excellent authentic regional cuisine rather than the cookie-cutter Italian fare. Our meal included delicate carpaccio, tender veal and delicious hand made ravioli. Service from wait staff was excellent and attentive.

Wish we had read reviews before eating at this restaurant. We were celebrating a special occasion, which was spoilt by eating here. Lasagne tasteless and vegetables served with chicken were uncooked. One waitress in particular was very loud and rude. Very very disappointed.
