We had a really nice evening, nice view, the food was amazing and the staff was friendly and helpful. The music/Bassline from the rooftop bar could be an issue, but not for us. It was nice to grab a nice drink after dinner with a 360 view.

The view was incredible! We had a table at the corner overlooking the ocean. The sunset was spectacular, we could see Mount Vesuvius, we could see all the lights come on in the town of Sorrento, it was gorgeous. The wait staff were friendly and helpful and accommodating. They provided suggestions and were there to accommodate our every need. We had the four course meal it was awesome. My daughter is a vegetarian so all the meals were made to accommodate this requirement. My favourite was the grilled octopus, the cod salad and the calamari salad. That was the starter for my four course meal. It was expensive but I knew that and expected no less for the service, quality, view and atmosphere.

My husband and I enjoyed our special anniversary dinner here. The food was excellent. I had a pumpkin tartagliatelle and he had chicken cooked to perfection. We enjoyed creme brûlée, cappuccino, and limoncello for dessert. Staff was the best we have had here in Italy, very attentive. Also a few chef special tastings were brought out for us to try which was a great addition to the perfect dinner.

An exceptional meal for an exceptional view! From the first pre-dinner drink to the dessert and special items from the chef, your in for a treat. The combination of flavors and textures to local cuisine is well worth the price of the tasting menu with wine pairing. As all tasting menus are, the portions are small. Don't order if you like large portions. I have a hearty appetite but did not leave hungry. We came to celebrate our anniversary and appreciated the attentive staff for making our evening a memorable one. Grazie!

We, ZiggyCamp, are a family of four with two kids aged 10 and 20. It’s hard to find a restaurant that checks all our cards, but this one did. Fantastic service, amazing food, exquisite ambiance and incredible sunset views were hits with everyone. Most kids menus are merely passible but this one elevates the art form. They offer real food that won’t freak your kids out but also qualifies as fine cuisine. Our waiter Massimo was perfectly attentive and helpful with a recommendation at all the right points. Two of us sampled the blind tasting with wine pairings. The other two ordered buffalo filet (kids menu) and ravioli. All were excellent and recommended. Massimo recommended local wines and liquors, all of which we tried and with all were quite pleased. We don’t always order dessert but did here, and were glad we did. Banana fritters, Tiramisu (chef’s interpretation- spoiler alert - think cigar) and apple tart finished the meal off perfectly. Except it wasn’t over yet because we ended with a nightcap of local liquors at the rooftop bar which was the absolute best way to shut things down. If you have only one night in Sorrento, make sure to reserve a table here. And ask for Massimo if he’s around. You won’t be disappointed.

Dear Client, Thank you for your visit and for sharing your thoughts. We are sorry you found our food too salty: I can only apologize as the taste is always very subjective and of course not all our clients find our food too salty. We are sorry you wrote our food is "average". Our goal is to serve local ingredients and traditional recipes in a nice ambience with a touch of innovation. Our Chef likes to "keep it simple" to respect our fresh produce. We hope you will give us another chance!
