If you love pizza, Pizzeria Da Franco (€€) is a must. The pizzeria in 256 Corso Italia, you will find a wide selection of cured meats and cheeses to decorate your dishes. Also try the special ‘frusta sorrentina’, the typical Sorrento elongated pizza created by chef Antonino Esposito. You can try it at Pizzeria Ahum (€€) in Via Sant’Antonino or at the port of Sorrento (Marina Piccola) at Ristorante Antonino Esposito Pizza e Cucina (€€)

An obligatory stop at Corso Italia, 142 for Bar Gelateria Primavera (€), run with the flair of owner Antonio Cafiero. This is a historic Sorrento eatery on whose walls you can admire photos of the V.I.P.s who have stopped here.
