“One of the best meals we had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

The view this place offers would be worth a mediocre meal. The best part? It was one of the best meals we had!! We were recently there for our honeymoon at the end of the season so the sun set early and it was raining - but in high summer this place would be second to none.

Great staff, excellent wine and some of the best food we had all trip. They welcome you with complimentary proesecco and amuse bouche. The Sea Bass was sublime and husband says the steak was excellent. Dessert was heavenly and the service was superb. Not to mention a unique mode of entry - I won't spoil the surprise! A winner!

“Best meal in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

This restaurant is a hidden gem. It is a ten minute drive by taxi from Sorrento and worth it. It is built into the cliff and the view is superb. There were 6 of us and we chose to sit inside but the view was still stunning. The food was beautifully presented and tasted exquisite. We were greeted with complimentary Prosecco, then a free appie, and a free liqueur at the end of the meal. three of us had the lamb and we all raved about it. Two had fish and they were equally blown away. One had pasta and said it was the best they'd had in Italy. Service was impeccable and the waiter had a sense of humour, hard to find in Italy sometimes. If you want a giant plate of food don't go to this restaurant but if you want the best meal you've ever had please indulge.

“Best Meal in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

This was an excellent meal that we couldn't stop talking about for the rest of our holiday - nothing else compared to it. We were escorted to the restaurant by the very friendly lift man and were treated like VIPs from the moment we entered. We arrived just in time to watch the sun setting behind the island of Ischia, just beautiful. We were treated to a free glass of Prosecco while we made our choices, had a complimentary appetiser, and a complimentary glass of melon liqueur with our dessert. I had sea bass for my main course and it was delicious and accompanied by lovely delicate vegetables. My ice cream for dessert was accompanied by lots of little extras. We chose a local house wine which was very good. All this was no more expensive than many of the less inspiring meals we had during our stay. If you are in Sorrento make the trip out to Sant' Agnello for a meal at this restaurant - it will be worth it.

“Beautiful view and great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

This was an incredible meal! The view was also amazing. They have inside and outside seating. They bring you little extras too- tiny squid salad to start with a little glass of sparkling wine to start then limoncello cream before dessert. Very good and the service was superb, very friendly servers, first time anyone checked to ensure the meal was to our liking since we arrived in Italy :)

“One of the best restaurants in Italy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013 via mobile

This place is such a gem, what a beautiful view from the tables on the balcony. I went here twice with my fiancée in mid September. The food, the quality of service, the view... Absolutely stunning. They even have floating candles on the beach below! I highly recommend this place. The elevator down is unusual but only adds to the experience, the man that escorts you down is very nice and friendly too. You won't be disappointed with this restaurant. We travelled all over Italy and this place was my favorite. Top marks!!
