Italian in Sorrento

Warm, buzzing and elegantly rustic, multilevel Zi'Ntonio draws everyone from local families and couples to clued-up out-of-towners. While earthy standouts include fried courgette flowers stuffed with buffalo mozzarella and basil, as well as a soul-coaxing lentil and escarole zuppa (soup), keep your belly empty if opting for the cult-status risotto alla pescatore, a huge, flavour-packed paella-style dish laden with seafood.

Of course, do leave a little room for one of Zi'Ntonio's delectable homemade desserts.
