“Great food...and view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Top tip is to book ahead and request a balcony table. Wonderful views of Piazza Tasso. Food was good and quick.

“Half a bottle of wine was 12 euros”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We ate here on our first evening and it wasn't the best introduction to dinner in Sorrento. We had been looking forward to half a carafe of the local red wine with our meal and requested this after placing our order only to be told that they do not have wine by the carafe. The cheapest wine was half a bottle of very ordinary wine and cost 12 euros. We ate inside where ambience was
seriously missing and resolved not to be plucked off the street by a waiter-scout ever again.

“Inventive cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

The restaurant was not busy when we arrived so the service was timely and the menu offered a great selection of tasty sounding dishes, with many lighter options (hence the name) over and above the usual salads. Definitely an American iwest coast nfluence in some of the dishes. When the food arrived it could not be faulted. You sit back with a nice meal, a cool drink and watch the people and traffic go by, some slower than others.

“A cold beer while the world goes by”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

After spending a few hours walking around Sorrento on what was quite a warm day we decided that it would be nice to have a cold beer. This restaurant was close to where we were due to get a bus back to the harbour so seemed ideal. The beer was refreshing and we spent a leisurely half hour watching the world go by. However as the restaurant is close to a busy road junction it was quite noisy.

“Shame”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We eat in here one evening and had a lovely meal with great service. Such a good idea to have good food that is light after all the rich food we had been eating. All the food was great.

It was so good that we went back for a second meal. The second trip was nowhere near as nice: the service was rushed. They got my order wrong and when I asked about it they said they "forgot" to tell me what I ordered was not available. I didn't like the replacement meal they gave me so they said they would change it. They took the salad that had given me (Strawberry's and walnuts) and literally dumped plain but hot rice on the top of the strawberry and walnut salad. Was such a shame because the first meal had been lovely but I would not go back. I left the meal untouched and I received no apology.
