Getting to the Restaurant is certainly a challenge and not a short drive but the view is really lovely and the restaurant is unique and cozy. The food is very good and the pasta is amazing. Well worth trying if you are in the area. It was recommended by the B&B we were staying and if you want local flavor - this is it. The music was a little loud - otherwise it was worth doing for sure.

Our hotel recomended this restaurant to us, and arranged for the restaurants pick up service to collect us.
The experience started well with a comfortable car to pick us up. The driver seemed a little nervous and unsure of the car though, which made the journey a little disconcerting.
The restaurant was in a prime location with amazing views of the bay of Naples and Sorrento. We were offered a choice of seats inside or on the balcony. We chose the balcony to make the most of the fresh air and amazing views the restaurant has to offer. We were lucky enough while there to watch a rather impressive lightening storm over the bay. The ambience was however a little ruined with the local football match being shown on the tv with the volume up rather loud!
The food was of good quality, but the portions especially of the starters seemed a little large. Maybe this is typically Italian, but a single starter between two would certainly suffice.
The service seemed a little lacking, with our first chef/waiter becoming more occupied with the football match, and regular power naps, waking for more wine, beer or cigarettes.
When the storm got a little closer the staff chose to close up the plastic covering over the balcony. This only proved to make the area quickly stuffy with cigarette smoke from other couples.
The service you added to the bill was quite a bit more than we would have chosen to leave, but did not feel in a position to question this as we were to use their "free" transfer service back to our hotel. This return service was actually in the back of a tiny 2 door car of one of the members of staff, which had a rather distinctive odour, and left a rather disappointing end to our experience.
I would recommend this place for the food, especially if you like seafood, as in told it was good. However, perhaps give it a miss if you are restricted to a non-seafood diet, or are not willing to pay a sevice charge over 20%!

Salve Gentilissimo cliente vi rispondo in Italiano perché è più facile spiegare...prima cosa per quanto riguarda la navetta il conducente non era affatto nervoso o stanco è stata una vostra impressione, per la partita be' era trasmessa all' interno del locale e voi avete cenato sul terrazzo non vedo che fastidio poteva darvi a parte che il nostro è un locale alternativo e trasmettiamo anche partite di calcio quando sono di un certo livello di importanza, ho visto che non vi siete lamentati della cucina e questo è un lato positivo della vostra recensione, per lo chef distratto dalla TV non credo che sia obbligatorio stare vicino ad un tavolo sempre anche perché c'è altro personale che si occupa di coccolare il cliente , infine per il servizio , be' fate un attimo il calcolo di quanto avete speso in 2 , non credo che ci sono prezzi più competitivi di noi in zona ...mi dispiace se avete avuto questa brutta impressione sulla nostra osteria ma alla fine tutt i nostri pregi li avete ribaltati come nostri difetti a dimenticavo ...forza Napoli

Hotel recommended this, and the restaurant sent a shuttle car down to take u up to the restaurant (and they took us back -they do this all the time). House wine was very pleasant and the food delicious. The view over the bay, the sunset and then all the lights round the bay twinkling while you eat. Good live musician too - not sure if that is just Saturday night. We loved it!

My wife and I as well as 2 friends of ours decided to eat here.
We were told by locals it was a good place to eat.
When we first entered we were impressed with the location atmosphere.
However that is where it ends.

Our meals took ages to arrive to begin with, our friend ordered a spaghetti dish and the spaghetti was hard my pasta was the same.

My wife ordered a squid dish and most of it was bread :/ ....

Getting the bill was another story, after asking the hopeless waitress 3 times for the bill we decided to walk up to the counter to finally pay.

What makes all this worse is that we had to pay for the bad service which is added to the bill afterwards.

The first disappointing meal we had in Italy :/...

Salve sign Jon mi dispiace non avervi dato una buona impressione ma credete di tutto quello che avete non c'è colpa ...perché noi siamo una osteria dove prevale il no stress quindi se avete aspettato un paio di minuti X il conto per noi e' normale routine ...e' il nostro modo di lavoro ...e questo per il servizio , per il gusto delle pietanze noi siamo abituati a mangiare la pasta aldente e non scotta ...per il calamaro pieno di pane era una semplice tempura e infine per il conto avete pagato la modica cifra di 88.00 che diviso 4 fa 22.00 a testa compreso di bibite ...questo è tutto e buona vacanza in penisola !!!
