Had some quite late night dinner, there were just some other guests finishing, but we were welcomed friendly and still got some decent food, my rosemary chicken breast being really good. Overall nice food in a pleasantly green surrounding.

Having failed to eat at our first choice and finding most other eateries full given it's good Friday we stumbled across this restaurant. I ordered the cannelloni and my partner the ravioli with a salad and house red. Have to say the staff were fine and had my meal been hot when served, would have given it a four based... More

Pizza not good Dough balls tinned mushrooms really salty Mixed grill swimming in fat and not cooked pork. Shocking service Just avoid this is the worst meal I've ever eaten and shocking to find this in Italy where generally produce is fresher and better quality.

We went by Il Giardiniello as teachers on the lookout for a restaurant for 30 students (not easy). The service was delightful and owners/waiter staff were accommodating. Food was tasty but there were some huge issues with food hygiene. One of our students found a cigarette butt in their bottle of water, one of the teachers found a button in... More

Worst experience in years in terms of food! Mozzarella (caprese) had peculiar taste, Penne al arrabiata was "oil in tomatoes" (the pasta was cooked too much, or sometimes sticked together), Seafood ("fish" "soup") was kind of grey pulp, my girlfriend could not eat it, poultry was tasting strange - it must have been refrigerated/reheated more than once, I could not...

Oh we just had the worst meal in 2 months in europe. There were tomatoes with rotten spots in the salad and my husbands pasta. My husbands seafood dish was grey. The red wine was after its used by date. It was truly awful. So why didnt we complain? Couldn't be bothered after a 9 hour travelling day. Do not... More

Over cooked pasta, old wine that was basically port, over cooked (reheated?) seafood. Wish we could go back and choose a different place.

Quiet and quick service. We went at lunch, easy to find, very polite and relaxed staff. Great food and reasonable price for Sorrento

We enjoyed our dinner in the lovely garden terraced room. The food is very traditional and tasty. We went back a few nights later for take out pizza. It was delicious. My wife thought the limoncello pie was the best dessert we had in our month long vacation in Italy ! Family run, very friendly with good service. Reasonably priced.

We were a party of seven, the food was lovely, quite expensive, although all of sorrento is a little pricey, but worth it, lovely atmosphere, with a beautiful outside terrace, there is quite a set of steps to get to this restaurant.
