“A must stop for Cappuccino in Sorrentto Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Even though this is billed as a dance club in the late evening for the young crowd, it is a fabulous cappuccino stop during the day. It is the best cappuccino we have had while we were in Italy. Ferdinand whips up a cappuccino that is a work of art. Not only did it start our day but ended it also. A stop here is definitely a must!

“Amazing atmosphere,cocktails and good music with tourists & locals :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

In Sorrento there are a multitude of restaurants, and cafe's which turn into bars come the evening, and everything is fabulous and traditional. There is however a distinct lack of trendier nightlife, which is why Insolito definitely made our evening on a number of occasions!!!

As younger guests (in our 20's & 30's) visiting Sorrento it was great to find a chic, modern, interior designed bar which played a cool mix of music and where you could find an equal measure of trendy locals as well as tourists.

As a central London-er, I was impressed by the quality of the cocktails (strawberry daquiri was a personal fave), which were spot on and perfectly presented, and the prices are very reasonable.

The atmosphere is very dependent on the crowd - some nights you find a chilled out vibe with laid back cocktails and people mingling and talking, others, if there is a livlier crowd the music is pumped up and the place almost become's a club, with lots of dancing, and a fun, funky (yet sophiesticated) atmosphere. The owners, Leah, Dori & Luigi are very good at going with the flow of the evening's crowd and letting the night develop naturally.

It's also got computers and internet access , and is open in the day for food (pannini's etc) and coffee etc... it's also air conditioned which is a much needed bonus during high summer!!!

Also, we spotted two of the boys from Westlife (Shane & Nicky), as well as Andy Scott-Lee here on different evenings! :)

Insolito is on the main street in town (Corso Italia) and can be found about 3 minutes walk from the main square Piazza Tasso. Would definitely reccommend :)

“You won't forget your nights at Insolito”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The city of Sorrento is beautiful and the people are friendly. I hold the city close to my heart and one of the reasons is because of Insolito. I grew very fond of the place and its staff. We became known as the Miami girls!! Great music and great drinks!! I recommend it for everyone,

“Best bar in Sorrento!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Insolito is a funky bar, right in the heart of the high street in Sorrento. It has a modern vibe with simply fabulous drinks and the staff are just great! During the daytime it is a cool place to go for a cheeky glass of wine or a simple coffee and snack but during the evening/night it is the best place to go for a cocktail and/or beer with cool music and a fab atmosphere. The staff make it fun and love to see you have a good time! I can't wait to go back to Sorrento in 2013 where my 1st stop will be Insolito!
