This place was a struggle for my husband and I to find as we walked along the main street in Sorrento. It is down two alleys found behind a church, and once we finally found the place, we were so glad that we did.

We sat down to complimentary champagne as we waited for a table. The restaurant is small but quaint. The owner walks around the restaurant and presents the entertainment (which we were not solicited to pay). First a wonderful violinist played, and then it was staff from the restaurant, as well as use being provided with tambourines and encouraged to participate if we wanted to.
Given the reasonable prices I was not expecting too much from the food. My husband ordered lasagna. It was prepared in an individual baking dish. The sauce was fantastic, not too much cheese and the meat was great! We had ordered lasagna on two other occassions and this one was definitely the best.

I ordered the shrimp risotto. The cream sauce was not too heavy and the fresh lemon zest was not only wonderfully fragrant, it cut through the cream so nicely. The shrimp were fresh and well cooked.

We also stayed for dessert but were so full we could not finish the chocolate mousse or tiramisu. I would definitely highly recommend this restaurant for couples, families, or friends. It is a true gem in Sorrento!

Great atmosphere - staff and proprietor sing you songs while you eat. You have to join in too with use of tambourines! Nice food and wine. We loved this place so much that we went twice for dinner during a week's stay. Worth booking in advance to be assured of a table.

You must eat here in Sorrento! The food was amazing and the experience is not one to miss!!! The owners put on quite a show for their guests, singing and guitar playing, it really was the most fun dinner of our whole vacation!
