“Excellent”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

We went here on our last day of our holiday as we though we would treat ourselves to something a bit more expensive.

My first impression was that the place was very impressive and different inside - like several massive greenhouses on after the other filled with foliage! Our first course of fried mozerella and various other bits was tasty enough although it was the main course that shone. My partner had a carbonara which had a delicious creamy sauce and I had the veal sorrentine which was cooked to perfection and had a light but flavoursome sauce. The roast potatoes done in tomatoe sauce were beautiful and a great compliment to the veal. The profiteroles we had for desert (1 in choc sauce and one in Lemon) were a fitting end to this great meal and heavenly.

The service was quick and efficient, although a little overbearing (we felt a bit like we were being watched whilst we ate!) but the waiters were clearly well trained and professional.

All in all highly recommended but not if you are on a tight budget.

“A must visit!”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

One evening we went into the center of Sorrento on a walking tour with a guide from our hotel, he showed us the restaurant and told us about the history. A few days later we decided to try the place for lunch and wow, I'm so glad we did! The food was spectacular, so fresh, tiramisu was to die for and the wine that the waiter recommenced was lovely (in fact we brought a bottle to bring back). We thought the restaurant was well priced for the food that we received, we are returning to Sorrento in May so will deffo be going back!!

“A gem in the heart of Sorrento”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

We found this restaurant in an old guide book we used during a previous trip to Italy. It was everything the book said and more. One of the best meals I have had in Italy (a place where you really can't get a bad meal). I had seafood and my wife had pasta-both superbly done. My antipasto of local and regional cold cuts and cheeses was fabulous. Our waiter (Nando) was extremely attentive though not over bearing and very cordial. He knew the menu inside and out and also offered some off menu suggestions the chef could whip up if we wanted something a little different. His colleagues Alfonso and Nicola backed him up without missing a beat when Nando and the owner had to tend to a large party sitting near us. Great food and great service, what else can you ask for. We intend to return to the Amalfi coast and this will certainly be one of our dinner stops.

“The best food in Sorrento”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

My fiancee and I visited Sorrento for the second time in February. We had discovered 'O Parruchiano the previous year on another trip and were in love with the beautiful garden setting. The food is unbelievably good. When planning our visit in February this particular restaurant was high on our to - do list and we were not disappointed. In fact we visited this restaurant on four separate occasions during a five day trip. The waiters are all excellent especially Alfonso & Giuseppe who came to know us and our favourite dishes during our visit. Paccheri alla Genovese is the best pasta dish I have ever eaten!
I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Sorrento!
