“This years treat!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Our first visit this year to Sorrento. Impossible not to visit L`Antica Trattoria and enjoy the best dinner, athmosphere,service in town. New Menu,new stylish dinnerware. Signori Aldo,Luca,
Gennaro(Toni when he is singing), Vincenzo with his mandolino and others are same but they always surprise you with something new. We keep sending these reviews in order to tell people that this is the restaurant to visit when You are in Sorrento! We have done so in every visit for
many years and continue to do so coming years. Never have we been disapointed!

“Lonely planet got it wrong”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Read about this restaurant in l.planet and tried it last night...very disappointing. The middle aged maître d had an attitude from the start and this continued throughout the evening...didn't even pour my wine, just left the bottle in the Ice bucket unopened, the couple next to us however, we're obviously known to him and he was very rarely away from their table, pouring their wine and water! The food was ok..my pasta dish with monkfish was floating in oil and 50% of my fish was inedible due to its chewiness. The dessert filled me up a bit but was nothing to write home about. We didn't even get a complimentary limoncello, first time in Sorrento..and the bill was high for the standard of food. The only good bit about the evening was the mandolin player..he was excellent.

Dear Madame / Sir ,

Thank you for your visit first .
Unfortunately we are not perfect , i should be onest , may happen that in a busy dinner we make mistakes and we do not satisfied all our guests .

But i do remember your dinner , and i remember as well when you tell to my waiter that you would write a bud comment on trip advisor couse you didn't received the limoncello for free .

Honestly i found that a low blow , couse until the limoncello was served , all was perfect , even the dishes were empty .

There is many ways to express , that was not the class one .

Best Regards

“Excellent Find!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We were looking for a good restaurant for 6 of us for a special meal. This is along one of the alleyways but the main area is upstairs & is amazing, a beautiful setting. Lovely food out of the ordinary and great service. Not cheap, but probably what you would pay at home for a decent meal, so reasonable cost.

“third time around and even better”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I have reviewed this establishment in the past, but my wife and I on a recent trip to the area stopped by Sorrento for the day and decided to have a late lunch before continuing our trip. We were going to try a different restaurant, but we decided to return to L'Antica Trattoria. Boy were we glad! As in the past, the service was incredible, the maître d' Tony, was very accommodating and the food sublime!!!
The atmosphere was fantastic and Tony made us feel so at home. anyone going to the area and does not try this establishment, will be missing out on a superb dining experience.
Try the stuffed zucchini flowers, and any of the fish dishes....they are so fresh and so well prepared. As for the pastas, out of this world!!!!
A real gem!!!
We hope to return in September and will surely be eating there again!!!!
