Pizza world!!!!

If you looking for the best pizza this is the right place. Margherita or marinara with fresh mozzarella cheese. From main square is only five minutes by walk located close to the train station . Don't miss this place.

Went to two other pizza joints before visiting Franco's. Easily the best. Authentic thin base, beautiful fresh tomato sauce, wonderful mozzarella and sausage topping. I will visit again! Also nice friendly relaxed environment, not so much a restaurant, more of a cafe vibe. Plenty of choice on the menu, good prices too. There's no excuse not to go here!

Our tour guide recommended this place after we asked for a good pizza restaurant that locals like. When he said he often eats here when he wants pizza, we were sold. We ate around the typical lunch time so many of the tables we occupied, mostly by locals. The staff immediately took our drink order and brought out some excellent... More

This is a great place to eat an authentic pizza at amazing prices. It is not fancy, it is a pizza café, but it is brilliant. Some British holidaymakers may not like it because pizza in GB is different to real Neapolitan pizza. You should also try their ham which is amazing. You can see it is good because it... More

No frills local pizza shop with great pizza. It was recommended by the hotel Capri Staff and we were not disapointed for a quick lunch. They also have homemade chocolates at the payout which were so delicious we came back before leaving Sorrento to buy a few more bags @3 Euro each. The place got really busy at night (... More

I don't get all of the excellents this place gets. We went based on recommendations, ordered the mushroom pizza, arrived hot and nice size, but the cheese tasted funny, wasn't cooked evenly, they gave us plastic forks and knives. We had an aperol spritz in a kids plastic cup with a funny taste - how can you kill an aperol... More

We got recommended from both our B&B owner and the chauffeur and no disappointment! We love our pizza enough to come here twice in a day! This pizza house open from 08.00-02.00 am and the pizza is sooooooooo good. (I can say that this is the best pizza we had in Italy) They made freshly baked pizza that has 2... More

We visit this excellent pizzeria every year when we're in Sorrento, and sometimes twice over a ten day visit. The pizzas are classic Neapolitan style, made with fresh ingredients and served piping hot. The ambiance is really basic/simple: large picnic style tables/benches where you may be sitting with some potential new friends that you've met while enjoying a beverage and... More

Very interesting little restaurant. Had massive queues outside on Friday and Saturday nights. Not surprising when we had our farewell Sorrento lunch there on Monday! Great pizzas. Great service, sitting on wooden tables and long benches, great place. Would return, good value for money too!

Wood fired oven throws out the best pizza, the dough was fantastic and the wood fire added that extra special flavour. It was busy with locals and the local police also were eating here. Great sign for a locals firm favourite.
