Sorrento Dining

Italian gastronomy is not just about delectable pastas. Dining in Sorrento is about recipes that have been passed on from generation to generation. It’s also about enjoying good food and great wines.

Elegant
Zi’Ntonio Mare is a beautiful restaurant. It’s located in the Marina Grande Harbor. The décor is of the outmost elegance and Italian refinement. The cuisine is just as magnificent. Specialties on the menu include freshly made pastas and seafood. Rice with a variety of fish and shellfish should not to be missed.

Donna Sofia will please discriminating gourmets. Its international cuisine is the creative product of a new French chef. He has re-created the menu to include delicacies from throughout the Mediterranean. All tables enjoy unobstructed views of the beautiful gardens. Also, the bouillabaisse is a favorite.

Vela Bianca is usually frequented by personalities who enjoy dining in Sorrento. It’s located in an old fishing village and offers astonishing vistas of the Gulf of Naples. The lobster and prawns are well liked by everyone.

La Tonnarella is another excellent venue for dining in Sorrento. Choose a table on the terrace and admire the scenery. Try the home made pasta with shellfish or the three-cheese risotto.

O Canonico is located in the center of Piazza Tasso. Its décor is symbolic of a period when elegance and perfection was at the foremost of everyone’s mind. Every table and every detail has been carefully selected to create the right ambience. Seafood and veal dishes are prepared and served with style.

Tip: Request to see the cheese cart after the meal. The selection is unique; it includes varieties from France, Italy and Scandinavian countries. Make sure to leave room for dessert.

Casual
Ristorante Di Leva is more than a restaurant. It’s an institution. This small eatery tucked away in a fishing village is the place where Sophia Loren once filmed a movie. Visitors can see autographed pictures hanging from the walls. Locals say the owner makes spaghetti like nobody does.

The Carusso Restaurant Museum is another must for dining in Sorrento. Its outstanding cuisine pays homage to Enrico Casusso whose pictures are displayed throughout. The small museum inside relates the life and works of this great tenor. The pastas are something to write home about.

Dining in Sorrento is special given the number of family owned trattorias and tavernas. Bagni Delfino sits at a spot from where you can enjoy Mount Vesuvius. You can eat on the patio or stay inside and listen to the piano music. The veal piccatta is sublime, not to mention tender and tasty.

For a different kind of experience, don’t miss Photo Food & Drinks. The menu is as unique as the décor. The walls display photography of the Sorrento of yesterday. Enjoy the goat cheese pizza or the pasta with squid in its ink.

Since 1930, locals have enjoyed Taverna Azzurra. A table on the terrace facing the beach is a sought out commodity. The lasagna al forno is the best anywhere in Italy.
