I am reluctant to recommend this restaurant; not because of the food or service, they are both unrivalled in Sorrento. No, it is because of how special this venue is, and not wanting to see it get overrun with tourists who would not appreciate the level of attentiveness and service the staff have to offer.
My wife and I visited this place on two occasions during our recent honeymoon in Italy. The first time, we were greeted with a free glass of wine and some free bruschetta (both very nice), the second time however, we were greeted as if we were friends of the owners and still presented with the same welcome gifts.
The owner speaks passionately about the venue and the food and has every right to be proud, the venue is a quiet and tranquil garden set in the heart of Sorrento. When we visited, there was also a very friendly guitar player who played quietly in the background and occasionally wandered around to greet the guests and see how everyone was doing - this is not like your typical nuisance musician however, he was a welcome addition to a very friendly group of people.
We were amazed both times at how reasonable this place is considering the quality of the food and how much of an unforgettable experience this place can create. If we return to Sorrento, I would not hesitate in eating at this restaurant every night we were there.
If the owner of this venue reads this review, I would like to say thank you personally from the honeymoon couple from Bristol, you contributed a very memorable two evenings to our stay in Sorrento.
