“Cheap & awesome!”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

one of the best meals that we had in Italy! Our second to last night in Italy, we were tired and home sick. A few mins walk from our hotel, we decided to give this place a try. The owner is the cook and the waiter and the entertainer.
With my broken Italian and his broken english, we had a fun night. The house wine is awesome and the pizza is great too!
if you want a good cheap meal, this is the place to go!

“Like Momma Used to Make”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was conveniently located just a few blocks from the Corallo Hotel and the food was tastier than the one across the street from the hotel. This place has tables up front, but also several in a covered interior patio.

The wood fired pizzas were good and the pasta was tasty. The deliciously tender Eggplant Parmesan is an appetizer size and is not enough for dinner, but is a must try.

The prices seemed very reasonable for the area. The service was speedy.

We had food from here twice and would go back again.

“Al solito posto”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

We were tired of jaded exhausted waiters at tourist hot spots, so late on in the season it is hard in sorrento to find any restaurant who can bear to wait another table. I completely understand this but this little unassuming place really has a heart, we were treated like human beings with kindness and courtesy. The food was not the most fantastic I have ever eaten, but I am absurdly fussy anyway. The point is that we've been in italy for a week and eaten in fabulous places in Rome and sorrento, but this is the first time I felt moved to write a review, because I was so glad to be spending my hard earned cash there. The food wasn't too much, too heavy or too complicated. A simple salad with a perfectly boiled egg and a lovely light dressing and a wonderful 'toasted "sandwick". All served up with an attentive service, humour and genuine intention to serve you, no trace of the over-familiar patter or the more common well-developed arrogance and disdain. I liked these people, they seemed to be just getting on with living their lives and serving their food in an unpretentious way without trying too hard or catering solely for the tourist industry. Not grand, not spectacular, but very real. Simple fare with a human touch.

“bellissima”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

I agree that the chef/owner is a little brusque (come on we're british we are used to that sort of thing and better than a charming smoothie pretending to be your best friend) but his food is brilliant which is what counts and reasonable prices.I don't really like pizzas but these were the best I have ever tasted and the rest of the menu is very good particularly the days specials.We went about 5 times in 10 days.

“Unwelcoming Owner, English...Beware..!!”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

Really looked forward to eating from here, reviews on trip advisor were great, seen locals coming out must be good right..!!! Wrong,
On return from lovely romantic walk and a quiet drink at local piazza stopped in here with partner for a pizza takeaway, only to be met with rude owner and surely attitude, we were only ones there, tried really hard with this guy but to no avail, everybody has an off day now and then but this was just ridiculously rude. I think he thought we were English, even started slagging off "The English" in Italian to staff member thinking we would'nt understand..?? It was horrible, we're not even English, won't ever go back, almost spoiled evening, everybody else we've met here has been so friendly & welcoming. Franco's on main road into Sorrento is real local choice for best pizza and it comes without the attitude.
