We both enjoyed a lovely meal in great relaxed surroundings last night and the food and wine were excellent. Our waiter Francesco was a charming young man who couldn't do enough for us and the manager Luciano even came over for a friendly chat. Would recommend this place to anyone, you won't be disappointed.

We were there for my son David's wedding and I can honestly say we had an amazing day, partly down to the wonderful service we received and the fabulous food. The staff were wonderful from morning till night we can't thank them enough x

Complimenti per l'ospitalità del titolare il quale ti fa sentire a casa facendo gustare la vera cucina Partenopea e l'ospitalità sincera che contraddistingue le persone Napoletane e nello specifico Sorrentine, che mostrano da decenni la professionalità in quello che fanno sopratutto fuori la loro terra..... 😀
