Happened to find this place whilst wandering lateish on a Saturday evening. Was drawn in by the high proportion of Italian multi generational families eating here. Due ti the late hour we only shared a pizza and a salad. Nice glass of red too. We will go back again sometime this week and try the extensive menu.

A busy restaurant with plenty of Italians eating there, so we thought it was worth a try and were not disappointed. Good menu with lots of local dishes & pleasant atmosphere. We had pasta dishes, side salads & deserts, all well-cooked and tasty. Huge desert menu, although some look 'bought in' served in plastic bowls, hence 4 stars.

Lovely little restaurant discovery. The waiter showed us the fish prior to it being prepared and it was well beyond my expectations. The staff was very professional and the prices were modest. Highly recommended

We ate here during a recent holiday to Sorrento. We sat outside which was pleasant and just set back from the street so a little more private than some outside tables. We only ate fairly light and both had pizza which was pleasant and shared a strawberry dessert which was also very pleasant. It was a nice meal but has... More

Nice atmosphere and very cheap so did not have high expectations. My pasta with tomato sauce was a mixture of different shapes and it seemed whatever was left in the back of the cupboard. I'm sure one of my teenage sons would have cooked better. I think it's probably one where if you know what you are ordering or are... More

Tucked away down a little alley what a wonderful find! The waiters in their smart uniforms, old school service, superb value for money and delicious food! The sun shone on our outside table, you could take as long as you liked over lunch, very clean toilets and some tables were placed over glass enabling you to see the mosaic underneath!... More
