Recommended to my father and I by our hotel after an amazing meal the night before on our own, we decided to take the cab and try it. As soon as we got in the cab which had 9€ when we got in and had a Vela Bianca logo on the side I had a bad vibe.
When we got out of the cab which ended up costing €25 (I later learned that a restaurant around the corner offers free car service) the manager and owner were waiting outside.
The meal was average for the meals we ate in Sorrento, but the prices were ridiculous, the service was very pushy, and it's billed as having a view of the water and it does not at all: it's a view of the street. The decor is that of a mom and pop lobster chowder place in Maine.
From working at a restaurant in Florida where they paid off the hotels in the area to recommend them, I can tell you without a doubt that this is what is going on here. No way any local would genuinely recommend this place without being paid.
