Restaurants in Cilento Coast

Located in a back street off Piazza Tasso in the center of Sorrento, this restaurant serves traditional Mediterranean and Neapolitan cuisine.

When Sophia Loren visited Sorrento recently, she insisted on eating at this no-frills restaurant, with simple wooden tables and plastic chairs on a portside deck that appears unaltered since the 1950’s.

Don’t let the inauspicious location—on a side street in this large modern resort town—deter you from experiencing some of the coast’s freshest seafood and best pizza.

Strolling down the Via Vittorio Emanuele extending south from Capri’s central “piazzetta,” the air fills with the sweet smell of baking waffle cones and bowls coming from the open-arch front window of Gelateria Buonocore.

Though the seafood is fresh and expertly prepared and the pizzas from the brick oven are quite good, you don’t really come here for the fairly standard cuisine.

It may be located on the lower level of a ho-hum hotel, but the food that comes out of this diminutive kitchen is anything but.

Located up a winding, stepped alleyway, the pizzeria is easy to miss; patrons often get lost looking it or stumble upon it while looking for something else.

The namesake restaurant of Hotel Lo Scoglio da Tommaso, this family-owned trattoria serves locally inspired Mediterranean fare amid panoramic views of Nerano Bay.
