Description: Just a few little steps, and the visitor finds himself in a peaceful haven of plants and flowers, under the protection of the vine covered pergola which comprises the terrace. With just a few steps more one finds the elegant and refined reception room, where one can bathe in the warm and welcoming atmosphere, and enjoy its peaceful intimacy. In the heart of the ancient centre, it is a “dream” corner, a blissful oasis, where one can lose sense of time and place, a magical little kingdom, where the happy visitor can imagine, or re-live his dreams and fantasies. Here, one is surrounded by familiar things from a long ago country community, which embraces one within its warmth. Its subtle lighting which casts gentle illumination on original and lovingly collected decor, all of which conspire to give an atmosphere of peaceful elegance in which to re-discover honest and traditional flavours, folded into delicious and secret recipes. All brought to your table by an exceptionally capable an

This is one of the restaurants I'd looked at before we flavour.ay and when we walked by, it looked so nice we booked a table. The menu is well varied with a la carte and setbtasting menus. We didn't want a lot so ordered just main course. we were treated to some free appetisers which lacked flavour. Both of us had steak so we ordered just a glass of red wine each which was really nice. Wine by the bottle is upwards of Euro 50. My steak was nice, but my wife's was a little past medium. We had dessert which were okay but the dessert wine was lovely. We felt oyr bill was much too high for what we had so if you visit, be warned

I really like this place but don't sit on the street, go upstairs and onto the terrace as it's cooler and much quieter.
Now let's be honest it's not cheap but compared to other alleged 'high end' places like Cafè Latino it is excellent value for money.

The food and presentation are excellent, there is a massive wine list to cater for all tastes and budgets. The service is great and there is a real sense this is a family run restaurant, enjoy a visit here but avoid the street area.

We sat outside on the street and found it particularly hot and not comfortable as there are no fans: cheap restaurants next door had these. We had the sea symphony menu which sounds great but was in fact decidedly average. Too complicated by half and expensive too. The waiter asked for a tip which is something I had not encountered elsewhere in Sorrento. Quite simply there are better places in town to go.

We went for lunch and had their 'light lunch' set menu. It delivered three incredible courses at a very good price for its high quality. The house wine was particularly lovely as well (though a lot pricier than most other places in Sorrento at €7 a glass). The atmosphere was very peaceful and the garden was beautiful. The evening menus looked pricey but for lunch it was well worth it!

The food here is truly superb -we went twice in a week. There are 3 areas; at the front in the street, upstairs and outside (preferred choice) or inside in a lovely room. Good wine list as well.
