We visited de Franco's 4 times, as the pizza was to die for. The place was always packed, but seating was quick. Friendly staff and excellent menu make this restaurant memorable.

No-frills environment, but pizza is so delicious. We ate here twice over 4 days. Prosciutto was outstanding too. Inexpensive, excellent pizza.

Visited here after hotel recommend it. So glad we did. At first we were a bit bemused with the plastic cutlery and cups and the waitress was very blunt but it's probably the best pizza we've had. (We've been to Italy several times) fresh hot fast and a bargain. Again the cutlery and service wasn't great but please don't let... More

This is the place to go for a truly authentic, "local" experience. Not many tourists here, so you definitely feel like you're experiencing an authentic Italian meal among the locals. The place is super casual, crowded with tables with benches, full of people talking, laughing, and enjoying their meals... With good reason! The pizza is thin crusted and they have... More

While visiting Sorrento we entered this place twice, first time by chance and second time because we liked it very much. The place serves very good pizzas, prices are reasonable, atmosphere is very pleasant, sitting on benches aside wooden tables, so all in all this is a recommended place to have pizza in Sorrento!
