Great pizzas!

Our taxi driver recommended Franco's. He said it was the best pizza in Sorrento. And the pizza was excellent, although trying to cut it with a plastic knife fork was tricky. This restaurant is very popular with locals, who don't seem to mind the somewhat hectic atmosphere.

If you have no clue about Pizza being lost in fast food pizza chains you need to order ONE METER OF PIZZA becasue here they only sell by the meter. It is a great genuine Pizza a must try.

This place was always full with people queuing outside. Frequented by the locals. We had a pizza there and really enjoyed it. Eat in or take away. Nothing to dislike.

Our hotel was just down the road from this great pizza place. Very basic interior with shared wooden tables and benches and pizza straight from the tray. But it's superb pizza, with a great choice and nice cold beer as well. Good prices too!

Was recommended by a local friend, and it did not disappoint. Infact, it was one of the best meals we had ever had. The Caprese Salad with creamy buffalo mozzarella and the local tomatoes were just divine. And then the Pizza which is served in a steel tray was one of the best we have ever had. And they can...

Tried this pizzeria as every time we walked past in the evening people were queuing out the door. We decided to go at lunchtime and we're lucky to get a table, these are big tables with benches which you may have to share. The service is no nonsense and quick and the pizzas are up there with the best we've... More

Eating on wooden picnic table style with the best pizza served on cookie sheet type baking pans. Great price. Hot. Thin crust. Big salads. English menu. Open early for those of us who don't want to wait until 7pm when the other places open up.

We eat here three times while staying in Sorrento. It's a very busy, informal place that's full of locals. The pizzas, salads and snacks were terrific and excellent value.
