“Unexpected delight”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Our driver took us here for lunch on the way from Pompei to Sorrento. It was a lovely setting for a restaurant with gardens and areas to lounge. The food was a little pricey for lunch but the quality was definitely there. The eggplant app was wonderful as well as all the sample plate offerings. I would really like to get a chance to go for a full dinner experience.

“Good food and friendly - but expensive”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

The food is expensive but the quality is quite good. Not up to the standards of Rome but well worth a visit.

“Great food, beautiful garden”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

I would recommend taking the short walk out of town to visit this restaurant. The food and service is fantastic. It's just a shame that this is not in town so it was not that busy. The prices are quite high so it is definitely a treat rather than an every day meal.
The garden outdoor seating area is extra special.

“High end wonderfull italian food, but for a good price”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

This restaurant was close to our hotel so we tried it.
When we came in, we immediatly were impressed with the atmosphere & design of the restaurant.
You can get an apero in the garden, on nice little benches that are very romomantic.
Then we move to the "dinnerhall" part of the garden were we had a very good 4-course meal. the food was a little more "upclass" then the other food we had during our stay in Italy. Everyhing was very good.
Because the restaurant adds that little more, the price was also a bit higher. However, I think for the quality that we received it was very reasonable.
There was no english menu, but the staff was very helpfull and explained whatever we wanted.
It was definitly an "dining experience".
