My palette was beyond pleased by the five course dinner I had at this restaurant. I loved being surprised by every course as each arrived and had locally sourced ingredients prepared with beautiful attention to flavor and and presentation.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Amalfi Tour & Transfer Service, Rainbow. We had a wonderful evening. The food was presented well and tasted amazing too. The waiters were charming, knowledgeable and patient. We witnessed some obnoxious behaviour by an overseas guest at another table who displayed all the characteristics of a pseudo intellectual wine snob. We and... More

We decided to go there as we heard it had a Michelin star and it was worth it. We took the eight dishes degustation menu. Really good. The staff was very professional and the food amazing.

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 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.
