If you are the kind of tourists who add ice cubes to red wine glasses and spice spaghetti alla carbonara with ketchup then this is the place for you, otherwise read along. Seated here ready for a full dinner, starving after a full travel day by motorbike, we were greeted with the usual touristy false-kindness...we ignored it and we ordered the simplest thing: gnocchetti alla sorrentina. After a while some precooked kind-of-gnocchi clearly warmed in a microwave oven came by, tasting as they looked... and there was no next course, better move to another place. Trust me, I am Italian, there's a lot better around.

I think that being August the chef is on holidays and the local kindergarten students are filling in for him as work experience.

We ordered the seafood ravioli which was quite tasteless followed by very bland servings of fish, chicken and prawns. We did not order any wine as it was so expensive and we had to return our patate al forno as they were soggy,

To add insult to injury we were not offered limoncello unlike the blonde young women nearby who received some along with some stroking by the waiter,

Our waitstaff were fine and I felt sorry for them having to serve such poor food. Hard to believe we are in Italy as this has never happened before!

Rude waiters, food with no taste (I could swear those vegetables had been waiting in previously boiled water for at least 24 hours) and an attempt to hide additional stuff in our billl which we didn't order. Easily the worst meal we had in all of Sorrento.

We visited this restaurant on our second night in Sorrento almost accidently as we found it whilst looking for another restaurant.

The food is simple but great. We all had pasta and we had no problems with the meals. The service is also generally pretty good.

Our only problem was that they charged us another drink on our bill, the table behind us seemed to have a similar problem, perhaps this is a recurring problem. Overall however, a nice restaurant located on a discreet side alley that we would visit again.

Food was very basic and tasted of burn. Ok but certainly not worth going to even try. Staff Ok. Wine good.
