My family traveled to Sorrento last summer. After being there for twenty-four hours, one concern kept smashing at my skull again and again - despite the beautiful views everywhere, where was the culture? Where could I actually find a good restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere that was not invaded by elderly British tourists and their Rolls Royces? Well, it took some searching, but my parents stumbled across this restaurant online. And I'll be honest - I'm a harsh critic - but THIS was as authentic as italian restaurants get.

The Service -
Every time my family came here the service was nice and determined to please. We were served on the first night by a blindingly beautiful woman named Gabriella. The next two nights, Gabriella was accompanied by Massimo, an excellent waiter and a nice guy.

The Food -
The food couldn't have been better! Fresh pizza, unbelievable seafood, delicious steak, pasta with clams - you name it, they had it. It was all so good that we couldn't keep going back! Tutto perfetto!

Gold Person's bottom line - If you want to get away from the tourism and cameras and get to the truly italian stuff, go here. These people know what you're looking for - not overpriced food to shove into your mouth unwillingly - but truly delicious italian food of all types that will make your trip to Italy unforgettable no matter how long you live.

followed trip advisor reviews, we ate here 3 days ago, just brillant. service is excellant, menu choice is good, atmosphere is beyound welcoming and the food is great. ordered fillet steak and a fish platter/grill, which had large prawns, mussels, cockles, large sword fish steak and two squid accompaned by chips and caprese salad, tasted and look good, portions excellant and priced well. it can be a little walk from the south side of sorrento and the road if you want to sit outside is busy, however i could not care less, please go and do mention tripadisor; he will really make the effort.
ps do not let the name of the place put you off, it is anything but a takeaway

This family run restaurant by Massimo and Gabriela on the corso italia is just a 10 minute walk from the main piazza of Sorrento so is very convenient and friendly........

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a sample of great local food at a good price with good size portions, it made it excellent value for money!! I kept going back because of the warm welcome from Massimo and Gabriela and for the great food on offer ranging from fantastic antipasti to superb pasta and fish/meat dishes.......the value for your money as well makes it even better because of the local and tasty food matched with reasonable and fair prices with lots on offer to sample....a must try for eating in and takeaway while in Sorrento,!!!

Just returned from Sorrento and found this fabulous restaurant just opposite our hotel. Food was great and prices very good, we had a lovely meal of steak, prawns (about 20 on plate), pasta, salad and a bottle of house wine all for 40 euros.

Staff very pleasant and ambiaunce was that of a small bistro. Well recommended

Found this little place between Sant Agnello and Sorrento on the Corso Italia, the main road in to Sorrento. My wife and I were one of three couples and we found this place purely by accident on our first of three nights. Massimo and Gabriella who looked after us could not have been more friendly and helpful. I recommend you try the local wine - it worked for us! We tried eating elsewhere on our second night and it was a disaster so we were all happy to return for our last night. Its not the biggest place and as a party of six we filled up a fair portion of the restaurant but it was definitely a case of small is beautiful. The food was freshly cooked to order and delicious. It was also very reasonably priced compared to many of Sorrento's other eating and drinking establishments. Happy to recommend this place to others.
