Located on the s.e. corner of Piazza Tasso ( on Viale E. Caruso ), this large "department store" is a good one-stop place for Sorrento fine arts. Mainly inlaid wood items & furniture, ceramics & pottery, jewellery and embroidered linens & lace. Very beautiful pieces, but for some wood items I would recommend checking out the factory store a few... More

We were struck by the wonderful intarsia work (a form of wood inlaying that is similar to marquetry) in this shop and ended up buying a set of 6 beautiful tables, each triangular in design that can be used individually or put together in clever ways. The design is extremely intricate and has wonderful patterns in green and gold. Each... More

Our driver had suggested we visit this tourist trap. We had not planned a trip to Sorrento but because my wife likes woodwork we stopped at his suggestion. We are US Citizens and should not be paying the VAT when shipping. They did not provide any forms and charged us the full amount which includes the VAT in the list... More

The sales staff was wonderful and the ceramics were first class. Much nicer than the items you see in the small shops walking around. They had beautiful linens also...along with many items made from wood! Would go back again in a heart beat.

We were sauntering through this wonderful shop admiring the inlaid wood, the pottery, the linens and the glass. Since my husband was born in Sicily he began to speak to the owner. Mentioning the inlaid furniture we were guided to the "attic" to see pieces not on the floor. BEHOLD, there was the console we had been looking for .... More

My mother and I stopped in this shop years ago while on a cruise. I picked up a lovely salt and pepper shake, small dish and a spoon rest with lemons which were painted on a cobalt blue background. For years after, I had thought of how nice it would have been to have dinner plates in the same pattern.... More

We visited this store as part of our trip to Sorrento through Globus tours. It is amazing what they can do with wood.

I visited this store looking for pottery. I found some beautiful bowls made in Sorrento. The inlaid boxes are works of art. please give yourself time to see everything in this store. It's expensive but beautiful . I took the pottery and box with me. One note buy the Murano glass in Venice. I love my purchases.
