This restaurant is situated in an old convent and is decorated with old manuscripts from the 1500s. The food was great and the setting would make for a romantic dinner. Would definitely return.

We ate dinner twice here while we were in Sorrento. The restaurant is in a beatiful and interesting old church. We ate various pasta dishes, calamari, and crab - all were very nice. Many extras came with the meal including delicious bread and limoncello.

Now, we spent 2 weeks in Sorrento coast and ate at probably close to 30 restaurants over that time. This one was the only restaurant we returned to twice. Here's why. It's worth mentioning that appearances are deceptive. We stumbled across this restaurant by chance...More

We recently ate a red snapper dish with mussels, prawns and other fish. What was the sauce with it as I would like to recreate it at home? Many thanks Teresa
