“Best restaurant in Sorrento”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

We discovered Museo Caruso on our first night in Sorrento and after a week of searching no other restaurant came close in either quality of food, presentation or dining experience so we returned on our final night as well!
The entire dining experience is comparable to dining in a Michelin star restaurant in the UK. The staff are fantastic, friendly, personable and remembered us when we returned.
We were serenaded on and off throughout dinner by a gentleman with a guitar, he flits between Caruso and their sister restaurant which is just further down the lane.
The menu is varied, with antipasti, first courses (pasta), main courses & desserts.
Chef sends out a little dish before your antipasti which on both occasions was delicious!
Prosecco was pretty free flowing with my glass constantly being topped up and the bread never ran out either! The pizza bread is hard to resist!
We shall definitely return to Sorrento and Ristorante Museo Caruso. If you want a unique dining experience in a unique setting based all around Caruso then this is the place for you.

“Anniversary dinner in sorrento”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful romantic dinner in this quite unusual restaurant that has been dedicated to curoso pictures and momentoes covering every inch of the restaurant. The service and food was excellent especially the double chocolate soufflé. We had the most romantic
Anniversary meal and was serenaded by Francesco can't wait to go back

“Some excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

This is a Lovely interesting old restaurant/museum dedicated to Caruso with his singing in the background.
This is fine dining and for the most part the food is very good and different from the rest of the tourist restaurants food
Quiet but good unobtrusive staff.
Some dishes very nouvelle cuisine. When dish says " comes with vegetables". do check what that might be as what is provided is a tiny amount.
Quite expensive but you get what you pay for.
I would say one of the best and different meals we ate during 10 days.
I would recommend it.

“Fine dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

We ate twice here in the evening from the alacarte menu and what a joy. Deserves it's reputation as one of the best in Sorrento . A very clever & imaginative Chef. I won't forget the tuna. It was all the little surprises that we enjoyed.I tend to have 1plate but my Husband likes to have a starter and so When he was eating I was brought a little taster.The waiters were so attentive ,always making sure that our wine was topped up,never rushing.Made our 2 nights memorable.We both enjoy fine dining & & this is among the best.

“What a great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

We had lunch and tried menu degustazione with fish. It was fantastic! The service is also great! As it was a beautiful day, we wanted to sit outside, but the restaurant doesn't have tables outside. The waiter proposed we sit at the neighboring restaurant at a table outside. It worked out perfectly! The waiter also walked us through the museum- it is worth to have a look at the pics of Enrico Caruso....
