“L'Antica Trattoria, First class eating”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

Sorrento has some lovely restaurants but L'Antica Trattoria ‪I would strongly recommend a visit. Tucked away down one of the many cobbled streets you can make your way from the main square Piazza Torquato Tasso, and take a right towards Via Luigi De Maio, then on towards Via P.R. Giuliani 33. It would be easy to miss so keep your eyes open, there is a nice lively bar close by which is ideal for a quick drink before eating.

L'Antica Trattoria is accessed from stairs to a pretty flowed private eating area with a garden courtyard feel, very smart, clean and perfectly staffed. When we turned up there was several tables empty, but was advised that all tables were booked, however staff quickly re arranged some seating and found an ideal spot. To be sure it very quickly became a busy but well run restaurant. I would visit their website and book a table.

Food and service was so exceptional we visited twice during our stay.

As regular visitors to Sorrento we plan to use the restaurant whenever we can. The maitre d' is charming, and makes the whole experience extra special. Drinks and food are served just at the right pace and there are lots of really nice surprises.

If you are a Red wind drinker I strongly recommend a bottle Jaddico

“Charming! Unforgettable!”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

We've had two dinners at L'Antica Trattoria, and it gave us almost the brightest impression of Sorrento. The interior design of traditional local trattoria style. The hall divided into several small cozy rooms. Shaded lights, quiet live mandoline music. All this created a warm and very romantic atmosphere. The staff was really friendly and caring. The owner personally greeted us and during the dinner several times stopped by to ask if all was OK. Special thanks to a waitress who kindly guided us through quite an extensive menu, explained every dish and finally helped us make a perfect choice. The cuisine was a work of the art. Each dish was a masterpiece - delicate, exquisit and perfectly balanced with others. Plus a great selection o wines. We immediately enamored Sorrento and Italian food, forever. Unforgettable experience!

“Thoughtful service, excellent food”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

Went there in January 2012 with my wife. The food was excellent and the ambiance is very nice. Interestingly, they were frequented by locals as well. Prices are not very low, but if you want an excellent meal we would recommend this.

The staff was very attentive and the wine list was pretty good. I asked for a recommendation and they were able to recommend an excellent wine which I did not know about. Sensing that I was a wine lover, they did not only offer the cork - typical, but thoughtful, but the maitre d' actually filled in a degustation note for me which they presented to me at the end of the meal as a small gift. I very much appreciated the gesture since the wine was pretty niche and I had liked it.

“Best food I've ever eaten”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

We celebrated our 40 anniversary at L'Antica Trattoria. The evening was magical. The service was attentive and friendly - the food was just exceptional. We selected the 95 euro tasting menu with wine - the restaurant added an additional quail with truffle course that was simply the best food I have ever had. By far this was the best meal we had in Italy -
