Restaurants in Sorrento

Aurora-'O Canonico 1898  


Pizza and fine dining next door.

Fifty kinds of wood-oven pizza in an air conditioned venue. Honestly, that’s all you need to know about Aurora, particularly in July. You can also find gnocchi as well as most Neapolitan seafood favorites. If you want something other than pizza (which in this part of the world is a thick and doughy carb-machine), walk in one door down, into fish'n'pasta-heaven O'Canonico, a full-fledged restaurant with all the trimmings: same ownership, same complex. Both have outdoor tables. Closed mid-January for a month. Advice: stay away from desserts at pizzerias. Walk to the nearest ice cream store. 'O Canonico offers homemade limoncello, however. Closed Monday in winter. — Cristina Polli

Don Alfonso 1890  


Prepare to be pampered...

Tagged as the best restaurant in southern Italy and one of a handful in the country to have earned three Michelin stars (in 2000 and 2001; down to two in the last few years), chef Alfonso Laccarino is behind this masterpiece (he’s now executive chef at the Hotel Aldrovandi's "Baby" in Rome). Ten kilometers from Sorrento on the peninsula separating the Gulf of Naples from the Amalfi coast, the restaurant uses its own organically-grown vegetables and olives for oil. The old/nouvelle menu is inventive and fanciful, to wit: white fish in vanilla-raspberry sauce and pumpkin croquettes. Expect to spend €200 or more a head, depending on wine choices. — Monica Larner

Gli Archi  


Dinner, sea in sight...

Located inside the historical Bellevue Syrene hotel, Gli Archi is open in winter, which is a treat. It offers both stupendous service and tantalizing dishes such as smoked swordfish with mushrooms and celery salad, gnocchi with aubergines in a parmesan cheese basket on light pesto sauce and wild strawberries in a scooped out orange for dessert. An above-average hotel restaurant in a lovely setting. Reservations recommended. — Kelly Carter

L’Antica Trattoria  


Big night...

Workmanlike upscale, which is to say wannabe luxury. There’s a €110 prix fixe menu and a vegetarian one for half the price (they also have glutin-free menu). The ambience is pleasant, the service slow, the menu as ample in regional dishes (pasta, seafood, and meat) as you could possibly want. The antipasti are a highlight, flooded in tomato reds. All in all, this is the kind of place you’d be happiest going to as part of a group, with someone else picking up the tab. The venue was once a stable; the restaurant first opened in the 19th century. Closed Jan. 10-Feb 10. — David Amory

La Favorita O' Parrucchiano  


Sit next to a rubber plant.

They call it a "Museum of Hospitality" and it's much like dining in an indoor garden — a greenhouse really. Grab a table beside a rubber plant and order a caprese or cannelloni, which they do well. Nice stracetti, beef strips, with arucola. You can ask waiters to put pomodorini (cherry tomatoes) on just about any main course. Family-run since 1868, a cool two centuries, legend has it chef Salvatore Coletta invented cannelloni here in 1907, when the restaurant was known only as La Favorita, or "the preferred place" and was favored by upper classes (the only kind who could eat out). The pasta was known at first as strascinati — or “run overs” — since the dough was flattened, rolled, and stretched out by a pin. Closed Wednesday in winter. — David R. Deropolous

Ristorante Caruso  


In the Maestro's honor.

In essence an Enrico Caruso museum that doubles as a restaurant. Ignore the ultra-kitsch inherent to all such efforts and you'll delight in tenor paraphernalia and eat well, a nice combination (Caruso was Neapolitan). The translated menu is laconic risotto with lobster and lemon, sea bass with pistachio and salmon with Champagne. Look at the Italian and you get the good stuff: Tartara di scampi su finocchi marinati e panna acidulata con erba cipollina, shrimp tartare with fennel, Fagottino di ricotta e limone saltati con vongole e gamberi, pyramids of ricotta in lemon, with shrimp and clams, Lasagnetta tricolore con verdure mediterranee, three-colored small lasagna (dipped in spinach for the green) and local vegetables. Prix fix menus run €50 to €70, add the wine and you're easily over €100. — David Amory
