  What a truely fantastic & amazing experience, Clan Don Pedro provide.

For my daughter's wedding in October, everything was orchestrated with meticulous precision, infinite attention to detail, total professionalism and all managed & overseen by their entire family.

These guys sincerely welcome & treat you, as part of their own family.
Bellissimo.

Beautiful setting, superb food & excellent service throughout the entire day & evening and into the wee small hours.

Special thanks to Carmella, Theresa, Tony and especially Marcella who looked after the Bride, from morning till night.

And of course, the man himself, Don Pedro.
An exceptional individual who heads a brilliantly talented team & business who actually make your dreams come true.
Definately Numero Uno in Sorrento.

We may actually release our duet cover version of "Volare" soon.

Sincere appreciation to all involved for making Vicki & Malcolm's wedding day & reception, a truely unique and memorable one.

Hope to see you in Scotland soon, for a Single Malt or two

Ciao,

Papa Battensby

  Whilst organising our wedding plans in England, to get married at the Cloisters in Sorrento, we had no idea 43 of our family would wish to join us. We booked our wedding reception at Don Pedro Ristorante and it was above and beyond our expectation. We met Don Pedro and his family a few days before before the wedding and in that short time everything had been arranged from the food, flowers, hairdressers, video and transport for ourselves and our guests. We truly had a fantastic time and was treated like royalty throughout. Our family and friends are still commented on how wonderful and exquisite from start to finish the day was. We have recently revisited for our 1st wedding anniversary and was made to feel as welcomed once again.

Thank you Don Pedro, Tony, Teresa, Camilla and your welcoming family !! You made our day perfect for us and our 45 guests.

  I have just got back from Sorrento having got married to Nath on 14/06/2013. I wanted to say a huge thank you to Don, Tony and his wonderful family for making our day so very special.
The service was seamless and the whole family were so welcoming that it made the day even more perfect.
From serving the dinner to filling the glasses it was all done to the highest of standards. Everyone commented on the venue and the service received.
There was never a glass half empty and they few in a couple of surprises which was fabulous.
I cant say enough in words as to the absolute professional, seamless, welcoming and exclusive service that we received. The only thing I will say is that if you are considering using Don Pedro for a wedding or special occasion then you will not be disappointed. You will only be disappointed if you choose not to use them!

Maybe we will try it again sometime.

We enjoyed the whole experience of having Master Chefs in our home cooking for us.

Love to the whole family.

  We returned from Sorrento last week after getting married on the 18th september at the cloisters then having our reception at Don Pedro.
We come across Don Pedro on the internet last year by chance and im so glad we did!
If you want an amazing, personal, intimate wedding book Don Pedro!! Words and this review does not do it justice!! The service, food, personal touches is amazing, we booked everthing through Don Pedro apart from the legal stuff and I wish we had now! From the photos and prosecco toast, the ribbon cutting ceremony, to the drinks reception, the meal and a little suprise.... it was all truly amazing!!
Don Pedro, Carmella, Tony, Joseph, Teresa we cant thank you enough for the most amazing wedding, everything was perfect and so much more than we thought it could be. We keep reliving the day over and over again, we will never forget your hospitality and for making us feel like one of your family. We are already planning to come to Sorrento for our 1st wedding anniversary so we will see you soon.
All our love Claire and Steve Riley, Ciao xxx
p.s: give jack a kiss for us!!

If anyone would like to contact us about our amazing Don Pedro wedding please please do, I could not possibly write everything as would be on for the next week writing it!! my email is claireoliver123@hotmail.co.uk

  My wife, Rachel, and I married at Don Pedro’s last year.
All our guests commented upon the high quality of hospitality, professionalism and menu. Needless to say everyone had an amazing day.
We selected a full range of wedding services offered, including: live musicians, flowers, transport, wedding photography and not least - an extremely delicious menu.
Planning and organising our big day was made easy, the team worked extremely hard to help us in every respect, coordinating activities and promptly answering our questions. We finalised details during an extremely enjoyable midday lunch and drink at the restaurant.
Michele was thoughtful enough to accompany us to our ceremony in Positano and did a fantastic job of a supporting throughout (thank you). We think Don Pedro has uncovered a gem of a wedding coordinator in Michele!
My newly appointed Mrs Stockwell turned up (lucky for me) in a RR car (arranged by Pietro) with a beautiful smile on her face - for which I felt very lucky. Following formalities, we enjoyed drinks in the gardens, whilst the kids enjoyed playing in the vegetable garden and feeding the chickens.
We ate handsomely (our special cake was amazing!) thanks to the amazing Kitchen staff, lit fireworks and partied the night away with the live band led by the lead singer Pietro no less! The crowd applauded and clapped their tamborines in appreciation as he reached a final crescendo!!! Pietro told us later the song was dedicated to his wife Carmela who he clearly adores.
We recommend a visit to Don Pedro restaurant for a meal (as we did upon our first visit to the area) and certainly, if you are thinking about it, recommend taking the full range of wedding ceremonial services.. we're prettty sure you will not regret it!!!
We cannot thank Pietro, Tony, Carmela, Michele, Teresa and the rest of the Caccaviello family and friends enough for a quite magical day never to forget. Thank you.
We whole heartedly recommend Don Pedro Restaurant.
All our love and well wishes X

  It's coming up to our 3rd year wedding anniversary in just over a month and when we think back to the day we still remember the reception here with great fondness.

Everyone went out of their way to make the day special and everything was so personal. It's a brilliant family run restaurant and they make you feel like family as well. The food is amazing and the views are breathtaking. I cannot recommend this place enough for anyone wanting to book a wedding reception.

If anyone from don pepros reads this, thank you once again for an amazing day and making us all so welcome.

  we just returned from our beautiful stay in Sorento (two weeks). Our hotel was next to the Restaurant which we found "by accident" on the second day. After this dinner we came back and back and back. We enjoyed the food, the drink (especially the wine) and the few.

Thank you very much for the great hosting from Austria.

  Don Pedro
I wanted to send you a note and say thank you, thank you, thank you! My wife and I spent two great weeks in Italy. My favorite part of the whole vacation was coming to your resturant. You opened you resturant to me like we were family. I fully enjoyed the food, but will never forget the way you made us feel. You have a wonderful family and a wonderful resturant. I know you are coming to the US in January and my offer stands and I would be honored to spend some time with you and your family showing you New York.
Thank You again

  We had our wedding reception at Don Pedro's in June 2012 and it was utterly fantastic. If you are getting married in Sorrento, stop looking at other venues and book this place asap as you will not find anything better. As has been mentioned it is family run so you are not just 'another wedding' you are made to feel truly special. We booked our wedding at the Cloisters through Thomsons and had a wedding coordinater, she was great but we ended up arranging everything through Don Pedro, photographer, car flowers, musicians etc. as he offered a far greater choice for a cheaper price. The location is simply stunning, the food some of the best we have ever tasted but more importantly the hospitality and friendlines shown by all of the family was incredible. The best compliments we can make are that although they obviously do alot of weddings you will be made to feel like you are the first one and if we had a million pound to spend on our wedding we would still have not gone anywhere else. Thankyou so much to Done Pedro, Toni and the family. xxx

From the location and it's exquisite views to the food which was divine and Don Pedro, Tony and the rest of their family who pulled out all the stops. Thankyou to all of you for making Rebecca and Kevins day AMAZING.

  We had our wedding reception at Don Pedro Ristorante and it was perfect. I chose Don Pedro from the internet and had never been there before so I was a little nervous. Don Pedro told me "not to worry, he would take care of everything". And that he did !! The food, service, scenery, EVERTYTHING was fabulous. Don Pedro came to our wedding at the San Fransesco Cloister and arranged for us to have a champagne toast in Tasso Square. He arranaged the transportation for all our guests and when we arrived at the restaurant everyone was waiting and he had a ribbon cutting ceremony for us. We then went up and had a champagne reception with a guitar player and then a meal that is the best I have ever had. He made a tiramisu cake for our wedding cake which was out of this world. He surprised us with a firework display and a beautiful video of our reception. His family made us all feel so welcome. Our guests said it was the best wedding they have been to. If you're getting married in Italy and looking for a Wedding reception venue, then THIS IS THE PLACE!!!! If not, go for dinner. Don't miss this restaurant if you are in Sorrento.
The day before our wedding Don Pedro arranged for a boat trip to Capri for our group. Whatever you want, he will do it for you and do it well. We will definately be back for a visit.

Thank you Don Pedro, Tony, Tresa, Camilla and all your family !! You made our day SPECIAL.

  Hi Don Pedro, Tony & family,

I would just like to say the biggest thank you for making our wedding day on Fri 8th July the most amazing day of our life! We were treated like royalty the whole day and night! Our guests all complimented your restaurant and staff and said it was the best wedding they had ever been too! Nothing was too much trouble and glasses were never empty!
Myself and Wayne also wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did for us from start to finish, every little detail from the stop at Fauno bar on the way back to your restaurant to the cutting of the ribbon and the fireworks it all truly was breathtaking.
I am still thinking of that day, 3 months later and wish we could come back and do it all again. The photographer was fantastic and we are so pleased with our photos!
We will definitely recommend your restaurant for anyone wishing to get married in Sorrento! no where else could compare to your place!
We will definitely be back to see you all again for an anniversary one year.
Well, I could write for forever about how fabulous you are but need to save space for other people to write compliments!!
Best wishes & regards
Sara & Wayne Kelly xx

  Don Pedro, many thanks for everything you did last Friday to make Connie and Dean's wedding such a wonderful, special occasion. Your help and presence throughout, organising transport, being at the Cloisters, sorting the photographer, providing a wonderful reception at your beautiful restaurant, and just being a brilliant host made the whole day a truly memorable one. I can't thank you and your lovely family enough and would highly recommend you and your establishment to any couple seeking a venue for their wedding in Italy.

Again, many thanks.

Kindest regards,

Ian
(Connie's dad)

  Reception - 1 Sept 2011. Well, what can we say. Don Pedro is the best in Sorrento. We found Don Pedro a week before our wedding and had read good reviews. When we arrived at our Villa, his son, Tony (Travolta) was waiting for us. He took us to the restaurant where we met Don Pedro and the rest of the family who were just as welcoming. Whilst at the restaurant we tasted at least 6 dishes which were just exquisite and the best Italian food we have ever had. The food and hospitality were just amazing, we knew straight away that we had to have our reception there.
Don Pedro was able to accommodate us with just a few days notice as well as arrange our transport and photography. We were so lucky to have met him because he saved us a lot of money especially on photography. On the day of the wedding he was there throughout at the ceremony and then took us to the main square for pictures before proceeding to his restaurant. Don Pedro laid on some little surprises, cutting of the ribbon,the fireworks, and really made us feel like royalty. He made our guests feel welcome and really joined in the party. He also made our To sum it up Don Pedro made our day so special, we will always be grateful to him and his family will definitely be back.

  I would like to thank Don Pedro for his immense generosity of heart and spirit in organising and hosting the wedding reception for Mr and Mrs V.Okakpu. We had an exceedingly wonderful time at Don Pedro’s restaurant-hosted wedding reception. The food was an exquisite assemble of fine Italian cuisine; the limonchello was …mama mia! The unexpected and unplanned fireworks display, towards the end of the evening, was a delight to behold. I thank him and all members of his family for their warmth, for going the extra mile to make us feel welcomed, for thier professionalism and for high quality of service that was rendered to us on 1st September, 2011. Thank you, Mr Don Pedro!

  What can we say about the "Ristorante Don Pedro". Well if you're getting married in Italy and looking for a Wedding reception venue, then THIS IS THE PLACE!!!!
Trust us, the location! The Venue! The Sta. All truly, utterly, undeniably the best in Sorrento. Scenic, breath taking, mesmerising, awe inspiring panoramic views and the most helpful staff/family we have met in our travels to date and we have travelled a bit!!
The FOOD.... the food, utterly mouthwatering, truly astounding, seriously O.M.G!!!! From the traditional Caprese Salad (best Tomatoes in the world, oh they are Don!!!) to the batter covered Courgette Flowers (Sensational), the best Canneloni "Sorrento" Style EVER, to the cake!! O.M.G! The food at this place is amazing, we had a menu taster, days before our reception, (3 hours if not more of eating food and drinking wine Heaven)
The "Don" himself is a kind, warm, man who will go to great lengths to make you and your guests feel extremely welcome and special. If you need any advice on anything to do with your Wedding Plans or Reception just ask the Don. We did and we saved a lot of money booking through him, rather than going through Thomson, who quoted us ridiculous prices. Just tell the Don what your looking for and he will give you a few prices for them, be it cars, photographer,hairdresser e.t.c. His son Tony" Travolta" (the boy can move, just ask Michelle's Gran), is as nice and extremely helpful young man . His sister and brother, sorry but we forgot thier names were friendly and attentive as well, as were all the staff who were also family of the Don's.
To Finish it was truly an experience that will live in our minds for years to come, as it was our Wedding, but our guests said it was the Best Wedding they had ever attended and we agree (and we had 19 Guests of all ages)
We will be back to "Don Pedros" of that i am 1000% sure of!

  When we where looking for a place to hold our wedding reception I never imagined it would turn out as amazing as it was!! Thank you to Don Pedro and all his amazing fanily for making our day truly special!! Everything they did made our day so special and it was so well orgainised and all our guest where so impressed with the food an service they recieved. They picked us up from our hotel and we had lunch together and disussed all the finer details of the evening i left knowing we had made the right choice but I was still blown away by the evening. Everything was perfect the flowers, table layout, food and what an amazing cake they did for us nothing was too much trouble. Don pedro even helped us orgainse a special boat trip round capri which was amazing just what we need to relax after. I don't want write too much detail as I don't want spoil it for anyone else planning on having their reception here but they are in for a treat. I can't wait to come back and visit them all again!!

  We celebrated our wedding day on 14th July at Ristorante Don Pedro. From the moment we arrived Don Pedro, Tony, the rest of their family and all the staff made us feel most special. The setting was absolutely amazing, looking out of the Bay of Naples at the spectacular Mount Vesuvius. The food was out of this world.
We met with Don Pedro a few days previous to our wedding day to go through what we would like and he couldn't have been more accomodating, dicussing over a bottle of their wine and tasting the dishes we had chosen.
All of our guests were delighted with the venue we had chosen. They said it couldn't have been more perfect.
We would highly recommend a visit to Don Pedro's, whether it be to just eat or to have a wedding reception.....you won't find a better venue, that i am sure.
Thanks Don Pedro, we will never forget our day with you.
We will be back!!!

  Scott and I celebrated our wedding reception in Ristorante Don Pedro on the 7th July 2011 and it was the most perfect, memorable experience ever! The venue was recommended by our wedding planner Martina and we in turn would recommend Don Pedro's to anyone wanting to get married in Sorrento. From the moment we arrived at the venue Don Pedro and his family and staff made us feel so special!! I do not want to give away too many details as it might ruin the magic of it for other couples wanting to celebrate their reception there but lets just say every detail planned by Don Pedro was perfect and made our wedding the most amazing wedding any of our guests had ever been too...and that's an actual quote!!

I met with Don Pedro 2 days before the wedding day and we finalised all the details over a beautiful caprese salad (tomatoes grown by the man himself and mozzarella made by his Aunt!). My glass was never empty of either wine or Prosecco and it was all enjoyed in the most breath-taking surroundings and view!

We will never forget our time in Sorrento and we will never forget Don Pedro and his wonderful family!! Grazie mille xox

  Myself and Vicky had decided we were getting married in Sorrento on the 21st June 2011 and we were looking for the perfect venue to host our evening reception. We found Don Pedro's through Trip Advisor and after reading all the amazing reviews, looking on the website and contacting Tony we decided to book. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. Next time we saw Tony he would be collecting us from our hotel.

We arrived in Sorrento and as promised Tony came to our hotel and collected us and took us to the restaurant where we met Don Pedro, Teresa, Tony and the rest of his family who also work there. Everyone was so welcoming and we sat down and discussed our party over a three course meal, prosecco, wine & limoncello and also a tour of the immaculate kitchen and grounds.

Every detail was discussed and we found Don Pedro extremely helpful in helping us to sort our other wedding items such as flowers, our photographer, transport for our guests and wedding favours for the tables. We left that day confident that the day would go smoothly and that the food would be amazing of course!!Worth mentioning is how fantastic they were in accommodating the children in the party including our own 4 month old.
Upon arriving at Don Pedro's restaurant for our wedding reception we were treated like Royalty. We were then taken for a prosecco reception and our excellent meal surrounded by the magnificent views of the bay of Naples and Vesuvius. The food, service and overall experience we had at Don Pedro's is one we will never forget and would highly recommend anyone that visits Sorrento, visits Don Pedro. We felt like celebrities for the day.
We cant say anymore about the wedding reception as there are so extra surprises for us from Don Pedro and his family and wouldnt like to ruin it for anyone else that might be considering this venue for their reception too.

We Will Be Back!!!

Tommy & Vicky

  Tony kindly picked us up from the Hotel Tramantano on 12/06/2011 and his sister,Theresa, recepted us when we arrived at Don Pedros. We enjoyed complimentary wine whilst enjoyong the fantastic views from the Garden and Theresa told us jusst to wander back down to the Restaurant when we felt like it.

Theresa looked after our needs throughout the 3 1/2 hrs we spent at the Restaurant, was not intrusive or overbearing, and was a 1st Class hostess.

The meal we enjoyed was of very high standard, especially the Steak meals we enjoyed for the main course. Helped down at the end by the home made Limoncello.

Tony kindly transported us back to the Hotel Tramantano when we had finished.

A superb location and our best eating experience in Sorrento this holiday.

We fully intend to visit again on our next trip to Sorrento.

Thanks once again to Tony + Theresa

Kind Regards

Colin + Sue

  We spent a week in Sorrento at the end of May and visited this restuarant twice, which is rare for us, as like to experiement with eating in different locations each evening. However, the location, fine cuisine and company provided by Don Pedro and his family simply made us want to visit again!

We felt like we were eating with friends, I have read other comments similar to this and simply thought people were going over board. Nope it is all true!

The food is very good, its not cheap, but is fab value for quality.

Would recommend this restuarant to anyone visiting the area - oh and they pick you up for free from your hotel.

  Our wedding was on 5th May and it was the most amazing day that we could ever have hoped for. The whole day was perfect. Not only were Don Pedros family and the restaurant incredible, but the support we had from the moment we met in Sorrento last November to the moment we left a week after our wedding was amazing.

Don Pedro helped us to put so much of our wedding together in the months leading up to the big day. Transport for guests, flowers, the menus, the wine, the location, and most importantly the reassurance that it gave us that everything was in good hands! This is an understatement, nothing was too much trouble for Don Pedro and his family. All of our requests, and questions were always dealt with so professionally and always with the family's warmth and friendliness. In fact our children wanted to stay and move in with Don Pedro, Tony, Theresa and their lovely family!

I would recommend Don Pedros restaurant as the perfect venue for a wedding. The incredible food, the scenery, the limoncello - everything!! But Don Pedros ability to give fantastic advice and support makes him the best wedding planner/advisor you could ever have. Dont go anywhere else or talk to anyone else!!! What a trip and what an amazing day - thank you Don Pedro,we will never forget our day and our time with you all. Grazie!!!! x

  Thank you so much to Don Pedro & his beautiful family for such a wonderful day.
As guests at the wedding of Darren & Sam we were treated to an exquisite reception with such attention to detail. Drinks served on a floral patio with fabulous sea views, a beautifully dressed wedding table strewn with rose petals and such attentive service - Don Pedro obviously takes great pride in his establishment and knows how to make the wedding couple feel very special.
Having family in Rome, we spend every summer in Italy but never have we had such fantastic food. The family at Don Pedro's are very talented in the kitchen - the food was so delicious and certainly plentiful!
All of the family ensured that there was nothing further that could be done to make this day more perfect.
We were full of adulation for Don Pedros's for the rest of the holiday and intend to drive down from Rome this summer for another delicious meal with such great hosts!

  We got married on the 3rd June 2011 and had arranged our reception at Don Pedro's restaurant. In the week leading up to the wedding we met Don Pedro and all his family at the restaurant and went through the fine details. His family looked after us throughout the day and we left the restaurant knowing that we had made an excellent choice.
On the afternoon of the wedding day we all arrvied at Don Pedro's and were met with a fantastic welcome. The atmosphere and views were stunning and we had what we would only describe as an exceptional evening. The food was commented on by all our guests who stated that it was by far the best they had eaten. The whole evening could not have gone better and this was soley down to the hard work and commitment of Don Pedro and his family. Nothing is too much for them and they made us feel so welcome.
If you are looking for an authentic Italian venue with attention to detail, superb food and stunning views then this is a must. The whole family made our evening one that we will never forget.

  My wife and I had two lunches here May 2011, the first on the strength of positive internet reviews, the second because we had to. The family and staff are so charming, the location superb and the food to die for. Try Don Pedro's home made merlot with grapes trodden by the delightful Theresa and don't miss Momma's Limoncello - quite the best we have ever tasted. Go hungry - there are no "nouve cuis" portions served here. If you want to experience the best of Italian family life with amazing food make this a "must do" for your trip. Thanks Toni, Theresa and Don pedro. Ciao.

  My partner and I had our wedding reception here on 16/05/2011 for 17 people. It was absolutely amazing! I dont normally write reviews on the internet but would definitely recommend this as a wedding venue to anyone, you just cant go wrong. The food was exceptional, table layout fantastic and the family were absolutely lovely, they couldnt have done anymore for us! There were lots of fabulous surprises along the way and the next day, photos were delivered on a cd to our hotel free of charge of the night reception taken by Don Pedro which were invaluable. The views of Vesuvious were fantastic from here and Don Pedro ensured at the end of the night that taxis were charged at 25 euros for 6 people sharing back to Sorrento centre despite some of our party staying slightly out of the centre, which was really reasonable. The welcome apperitif was also amazing with Bellinis and Rossinis (on request) and we could choose exactly when we wanted to dine. We also had an ipod so could select our own music via amplifier which was also excellent although Don Pedro also provide music themselves as an alternative. Overall a fantastic day which could not be bettered, thankyou Don Pedro and Family we will never forget our fantastic day! Rachel and Alex x x x

  following a recommendation from a friend, we held our daughter's wedding reception at Don Pedro's. It turned out to be one of the best days of our lives. The food was superb, the views from the terrace were breathtaking- ideal for stunning photographs. Best of all was the effort and attention to detail from Don Pedro and his family, they even joined in with the celebrations! We paid for a wedding reception but we recieved much, much more from this lovely family.
Please consider having your wedding reception here, you will not be dissapointed. Any questions, feel free to contact me by E-mail. johnnhazelg@live.co.uk.

  My Husband and I went to Italy for our honeymoon and traveled all over for 3 weeks. We went to many places, but the best experience I had was the cooking class at Don Pedro Restaurant!! The last week we were there, i really wanted to take a cooking class, Tony was able to fit us in last minute and gave us an amazing private cooking lesson for a great price. Tony picked us up from our hotel and drove us to the restaurant. We walked through the beautiful organic garden and Tony explained how they took care of the garden and all the wonderful things they grew there. We even got to pick fresh ingredients for the food we were going to cook. We had complete hands on cooking, met many family members, were given lots to drink and learned so much about the culture. We made hademade gnochi, stuffed zuchinni flowers, eggplant parm, crazy water fish, and tiramisu! The chef's were very talented and really understood how to work with food and bring out the amazing flavors. They even gave us going away presents! They gave us lots to drink with our meal and made us feel so much at home. This was the first time i truely felt we were emmersed in the italian culture! We left feeling like we made great new friends! We felt our experience was so amazing, that we even made more than the cost of the cooking class. They invited us to spend the rest of the day there, relaxing in the garden and drinking on the patio.

  My family and I watched Italy win the 2006 World Cup in your restaurant, and it was an experience I think we'll all remember for a long time. It was our second trip to Don Pedros in the week we spent in Sorrento, as the food and atmosphere were so wonderful the first time round we had to come back!

Thank you so much. You and your family may not remember us, but we'll certainly remember you.

  My dear Don Pedro, Toni and all of your wonderful family, I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful time you gave my daughter Elisabeth and son in law Glen on their wedding day on 29th September this year. From the first time we met you to arrange the reception you made us feel like you had known us for years and simply could not do enough for us. Through your hard work and attention to detail you not only saved them a lot of money but also arranged everything for them so that the day passed without a hitch from start to finish. You and your family made everyone so at home and with all the special touches that you arranged as your "surprises" everything was like a fairytale. We all have so many happy memories of you all. The atmosphere at your restaurant is special, warm and welcoming, the food is so fresh and appetising, the staff (your family) never stopped trying to make everything so lovely and even joined in our celebrations as well. Your restaurant is simply the best there is in Sorrento and we tried many. No other restaurant came up to your standards. No other restaurant served such excellent food and no other restaurant made us feel so at home. Your dedication and pride in your business shines through your whole family and you always put the feelings of your guests first. I do not hesitate to recommend your restaurant to anyone who wants to enjoy an absolutely wonderful experience of true Sorrento hospitality. As a venue for a celebration or just for a meal you cannot go wrong in choosing Don Pedro Restaurant (the service will be just the same) and I for one cannot wait to go back.

  During our trip to Italy, we enjoyed your restaurant better than those in Rome, Florence, Venice, Zucca, and Tuscany. The warmth that you and your family showed us let us know what Italian hospitality is really all about. If we get to Sorrento again we will be sure to stop in. The ricotta stuffe gagoots was terrific and the octopus salad mucho buono. Thanks for all (Oct. 2010)

  Dear Don Pedro and your great family!
We can't forget our stay in Sorrento this August, and to the large extent it is because of your always welcoming and hearty restaurant. It was so nice to live close to your restaurant since always knew we could come anytime and your daughter will quickly arrange for a nice table for our big family, your sons were always ready to drive us back home or deliver food from the restaurant. I recommend everybody to try your zuccini flowers, mozzarella, tomatoes and all your fresh pasta and bread! We just opened a bottle of olive oil that you gave us before we went home, and is such a nice sunny smell that makes me think we are back in Sorrento again! All our family send your family very warm regards and we hope to come back to your restaurant again next summer! Chao!

  John and I want to thank you for a wonderful dinner during our stay in Sorrento. It was by far the best meal we had during our two week stay in Italy. Not only was the food fabulous and the ambiance wonderful, but you treated us like family while there. Your daughter was gracious, funny, and a wonderful hostess. Your son was so kind to drive us back to our hotel after dinner. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Everything was perfect and we would highly recommend your restaurant!
We loved it so much we tried to convince our daugther to have her wedding reception there in 2012!
Thanks again for a wonderful meal and a great time.

  Our son and daughter-in-law had their wedding reception at your restaurant in September and we can't thank you enough for the wonderful occasion it was. From start to finish (which was in the early hours of the morning) everything was superb. With Pietro meeting us at the cloisters to ensure all the transport arrangements were in place and the absolutely delicious , freshly prepared food, which all of our guests adored , not to mention the brilliant service provided by your hardworking friendly family and all the unexpected surprises which you had in store, you ensured that everyone of our 40 plus guests had a fantastic time. The wedding cake was a work of art and so yummy! We certainly struck lucky when we found your restaurant and we recommend anybody that is getting married in Sorrento to have their reception at Don Pedro's as it is simply the best!! Thanks Pietro, Tony, and your lovely family.

  Got married at the beginning of September and had a fantastic reception at Don Pedro’s.

The family were amazing – they did everything they promised and more.
The food, the cake and all the little touches were excellent.

We looked at lots of hotels and restaurants in Sorrento but none of them could provide the service we got from Don Pedro and his family – they are incredibly passionate about what they do and it shows.

We can’t wait to visit again.

  Wow!!! What an experience!!!

We have recently returned from our wedding in Sorrento (25th August 2010).

We had our reception at Don Pedro’s and with his family he gave us an unforgettable experience. So many special touches. All of our guests have said they had an excellent time and we will be visiting again with out a doubt.

The food was amazing. Very fresh and expertly cooked. Watch out for their Limoncello… it’s a little bit too tasty…

Don’s hospitality and service is second to none. The family are so friendly and welcoming. They know how to treat you right, make you feel special and show you a good time.

The view from the restaurant and reception terrace is out of this world. There’s not much more romantic than having your wedding reception aperitifs and orderves gazing out over the bay of Naples at Vesuvius.

The experience and memories are priceless but Don provided them at a very reasonable price. Very good value considering all the extras, special touches and surprises we had. I don’t wan to spoil the surprises and special touches… but there were lots of them.

Thank You Don Pedro and Family. We will definitely see you again.
