Sorrento in detail


The centre of town heaves with bars, cafes, trattorias, restaurants and even the odd kebab takeaway shop. Many places, particularly those with waistcoated waiters stationed outside (or eateries displaying sun-bleached photos of the dishes), are tourist traps serving bland food at inflated prices. Don't leave without a dose of gnocchi alla sorrentina (gnocchi with tomato sauce and mozzarella).
