Best Pizza in Sorrento

Located on Corso Italia, the main street running through Sorrento. Close to the train station. Very economical lunch, great pizza, salads. And they have free Wi-Fi too.

From the outside and when you enter you think, "this is a restaurant?..." Well IT IS! it's all about the food! Don't get me wrong, the place is very clean, just no effort in decor, it's all gone into the amazing food!! Went on a recommendation and the only problem was it was our last night, otherwise we would have... More

This is a must. School dinners Italian style. Long benches, pizza on aluminium trays, plastic knives and forks!! But watch the pizza being made, smell the wood fired oven and then it arrives, the best you will get. After all it was invented just up the road. You may have to wait for a seat but it's worth it.

I dream about this place on a daily basis. The food is soooooo good. It's not fancy inside and the cutlery is plastic but the food is spot on! We tried to eat here every day during our stay in Sorrento. I recommend margarita pizza, ANY calzone and the antipasti. A real gem. Would return merely just to eat here... More

full of locals who know how good the pizza is. wooden benches and long tables which you share with however comes in. The pizzas are served on large baking trays and are excellent. The restaurant is thick with atmosphere. Food and and service are both fast and friendly and you can stay as long as you wish. Outstanding value!

This was recommended by our tour guide for the day as a good place for pizza. The pizza was ok, but the real disapointment was how we were treated compared to locals, right down to what toppings were on the pizza vs the locals. Quite poor really, and the pizza was nothing special, so really not worth coming back again... More

I want to go back to Sorrento just to have their pizza again! It's a very casual place but the servers are great and didn't mind the 8 crazy American's who came in famished! We started with the Tomato Mozzarella salad - OMG!! The tomatoes were like NOTHING we get in the USA... and that goes for the creamy delish... More

Probably one of the best pizza I have tried in my life! The place is always full but we always got a table in less than 10 minutes. The pizza is amazing!! I recommend the Primavera as well as the pomodorini e bufala.

Recommended to us by numerous local people and used by many of them too, which is always a good sign. Very basis with wooden benches, plastic knives and forks and the pizza served in the tin it is cooked in. Not the usual menu that you would get in the UK but my ham pizza was the best I have...

I absolutely love this place. This is a no-frills restaurant, so don't come here if you're looking for something fancy. But the food? Amazing! Extremely fresh ingredients - the mozzarella cheese and tomatoes are to die for. The best pizza I've had in Italy by far. I'd first visited this place in 2010 during a cruise and I couldn't remember... More
