    Amazing and so welcoming. The little touches just made it. Beautiful setting. Little hidden gem. The steak was really tasty and the price was so reasonable. Would recommend.

    From the moment we arrived we felt like honoured guests. The owner, Pasquale, was there to welcome us and spoke perfect English. He checked our temps (covid) and we took our seats. The waitresses were very attentive and friendly. They dropped down a complimentary bite to get us going. We ordered a shared starter between myself and the gf and it was a sizeable portion with a variety of local flavours. I got the slices of steak which were cooked to perfection and she got the cod. Both main courses were gorgeous. When we asked for the bill we were dropped complimentary small desserts as well as a tiny bottle of homemade lemon cello. We had had a long day exploring Capri that day and the owner pasquale offered to drop us back to our hotel in his car. I can’t recommend this place enough. I’m so glad we left this place for our last evening in sorrento. A truly magical experience that I won’t forget. Do not miss out on going here

    The restaurant is a couple of minutes walking outside the city center but is definitely worth the walk. The restaurant also offers a free shuttle service if you want this. The dishes are really good and the smokey grilled meat is cooked to perfection. A great discovery!

    When I first arrived in Sorrento I asked my driver to recommend a restaurant. He asked if I wanted traditional Italian or if I wanted gourmet. I didn’t get a true sense of what this meant until I visited Bistro Sorrento. Let’s just say the night before I had traditional and every bite melted in my mouth. Every forkful was a burst of flavors. Bistro Sorrento was definitely Gourmet, I didn’t love it so much but my wife did....But the service, food presentation was amazing.

    I have been here for the third time this year!! This place is by far my favourite in sorrento. I recommend their amazing special pasta selections- all of which have been freshly prepared for the day. Further to this- the steaks are an absolute must... complemented with the salads and vegetable sides. The service is always guaranteed to be a 10. can’t wait to return back to you guys!!!

    This restaurant was wonderful! Food was amazing! Beautiful presentation and top notch service! We had the grilled octopus, wild boar ragù and fried shrimp and calamari. They even drove us back to our Airbnb! Ten stars! Fantastico!

    We had such a wonderful experience at this perfect restaurant. It was our 40th anniversary and we wanted a special experience and we certainly received one. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were treated like special guests. The service and food was exceptional and we really could not have asked for a nicer experience. I hope we will have the privilege of visiting again in the future.

    We traveled to 9 cities through Greece and Italy and this was by far our best meal! The restaurant has the most charming atmosphere, the owner and his staff are so very hospitable, and the food is incredible! From the appetizer, wine, entree, limoncello, dessert, and espresso, the quality of the food and presentation of the meal was superb! The owner was even kind enough to offer us a ride back down to the town center! If you are in Sorrento, you must visit this fabulous spot!

    The staff here is so upbeat and friendly, they brought a smile to our face every time they came over. The details were amazing and truly the food was, too. We had the ravioli special and steak. The Tuscan Steak was very fatty (they warned us), so not much there, but very flavorful. The tbone was enough for two. The cheesecake was not like NY style, but served in a parfait glass and very light and airy. So amazing we almost ordered more to share but were too full in the end. The beautiful resident lab made the place extra special. Oh, and the best part was they had one of their staff pick us up and drop us back off at our hotel.

    This place was interesting. The food was good, but sadly the fish/octopus wasn’t fresh - it was cooked from frozen. Bizarre point - The female staff were super friendly and welcoming, but the owner/manager who took my order wasn’t as cordial. He was busy chatting with the other tables and checking in with them, even bringing them a lamps for the tables. However, I felt as if he ignored me the rest of the evening. This was unfortunate.

    It was a true dining experience. Off the beaten track, quiet and they were extremely attentive. Not a fast food experience, the entire meal was around 2.5 blissful hours. They graciously drove us back to our hotel when dinner was completed. So glad we made the effort to dine at Bistro Sorrento! Last but not least, their food was amazing!

    First class food, ambience, and service. The waitress was so sweet and helpful, Pasqual the owner personally takes the order and patrons. He was so kind and drove us down to the seaside area of town so we did not have to walk. How much better does it get? The cherry tomato salad was perfect, the sweetest tomatoes we have had on the entire trip. the boar ragu was so classy. It is no wonder it is a favorite spot of locals.

    Great menu and superb service. Bit out of the way but enjoyed the walk (about 12 mins from the main square in sorrento). I believe that the restaurant also provide a shuttle / pick up service if you request it. Don't be put off by the location - the food, service and wine are worth it when you get there.

    What a great experience we had at this restaurant. From being picked up at the hotel by one of his sons to being greeted at the door by the owner Pasquale and brought to our table . Food was great as was the service . He has an exposed kitchen so it was very interesting watching the whole cooking and plating process. The kitchen and the whole restaurant was spotless. Can’t say enough good things about the whole experience.

    Stunning! As good a meal as i have had. Had the fish platter to share for starter which was amazing. Fresh, light and extremely tasty. 60 day aged Tomahawk steak to share came next and that too was some of the nicest meat ive sampled. The staff are all passionate about the food and take pride in explaining each course/option. There were also some little apperitifs and desserts thrown im free of charge. Lovely environment, top service, top food! Highly Reccommend!!

    Its about a 15 minute walk - mostly uphill from the center of town. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Great decor and classic music from the Sinatra era on the night we were there. Good wine selection and authentic Italian dishes. All done up perfectly. The is no view from inside but if yr looking for great Italian food - this is it.

    This little restaurant was definitely a great find! The staff were very welcoming and friendly! The food was delicious, my partner and I had the seafood plate for starters, you could tell the fish was fresh and they only use the freshest of Ingredients! I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you want to experience a great taste of Italian food and the warm hospitality!

    This was the best meal we had in Sorrento. We sat in the covered outdoor area, which had wonderful ambiance for our romantic dinner for two, and both loved the delicious pasta from the seasonal menu. Excellent service and wine recommendation. Such a perfect meal to end our Sorrento stay. A little bit out of town but well worth the 15 min walk for us.

    Beautiful place. Warm and welcoming host (including Luna) as well as the attentive and knowledgable staff. Best dinner we had in sorrento. Perfect pasta and steak. Great recommends on wine and complimentary extras such as mini pizza and limoncello. The walk out of town was well worth it!! We were even taken back to the bus depot in sorrento via complimentary Audi convertible. Basically our last night in sorrento was made special by this place. Definitely worth the visit

    Beautiful Restaurant. Lovely welcoming people.Great wine. I went with the Beef which was recommended by the Chief. There was too much meat which was not edible. Maybe 50%. As everything else was so good about the Restaurant it was a great pity my main course was so disappointing. They pride themselves on their Beef. Almost forgot. They collected us from our Hotel and brought us back again.That was a super Plus. In criticizing the Beef I should say that in many other Restaurants in Sorrento the Beef was not good. Even in Michelin Restaurants. We stayed in the Bristol Home. September 10 to 17. Kind Regards. Alfredo. Dublin. Ireland.

    Amazing dinner! Top quality local and seasonal ingredients. Extremely charming and hospitable. Tonino, one of the owners, even picked us up at our hotel because it’s a bit up the hill which sets it apart from the tourist traps in town with pictures of the menu outside each restaurant. Pasquale the main owner is a gentleman and is very personable making sure to greet each table and answer any questions about his menu. Had amazing black truffle pasta, mixed greens salad, grilled veggies, red snapper plus complimentary pizza, fresh bread and lemonchello (with the best macaroons). Had to order dessert because I couldn’t dare pass it up and wasn’t let down. Class act place you do not miss when in Sorrento. Thank you!

    Lovely restaurant hidden away from the hustle and bustle of main town Sorrento. It’s about a 15 minute walk and well worth it! We had tuna and fish of the day - both were delicious. The service from everyone at the restaurant was exceptional. They catered very well for my gluten free requirement too.

    The Bistro is well off the main route, but well worth the walk. The staff were delightful, polite and extremely helpful. The restaurant is clean, beautifully appointed and has loads of style and personality. The food (we had steak) was exceptional.
