There's no doubt the food is good, but I had trouble enjoying it because of the sheer amount of plastic waste that was resulting from our humble meal. We received two plastic cups with our beers, plastic cutlery that was separately plastic wrapped and a whole bunch of plastic plates. The only thing that was not served on plastic was... More

Authentic, wood-fired oven pizzas. This place is no frills - plastic cutlery & glasses, pizzas on metal trays, but proper Italian pizzas in a great atmosphere!

Tried this on the recommendation of a local. Cacio e Pepe pizza was delicious but very cheesy. Not all pizzas have sauce and the presence of tomatoes on the ingredient list does not indicate tomato sauce base, just FYI. Pizza ingredients fresh and personal pizzas are shareable if you don't have a huger appetite. Gets really full with tourists and... More

We stopped in at 830 for dinner and were lucky to get seated right away. By the time we left, the line was long. Not because of slow service but because of great food! Location was convenient to our hotel and the main square. Two of us ordered individual pizzas and 2 shared a larger one. We had leftovers! Only... More

Lovely pizza but what lets it down is the really moody miserable staff. The man really didn't like having to get us plastic plates and oil when we asked! Also charged us €2 more as they tried to make out we had a better mozzarella to the one we ordered! Cheer up Francos!

Lovely setting, busy place for a Thursday night at 10pm. Service poor, our order not put through, only after a half hour wait did they realise that we didn't have our pizza and then put our order in. Once it arrived the pizza was delicious.

After a few hours slogging round Ercalano where there are no proper facilities to get even a fresh coffee or something to eat we took the train back to Sorrento. A local contact from Vico Esperense told us to try Pizzeria Franco. A great experience. Full of locals enjoying the thinnest, crustiest pizzas with local wines in down to earth... More

Recommendation from every local I talked to in Sorrento. Right across the street from the LEMON GROVE GARDEN, around corner from train station opposite tourist direction on Corso Italia. Delightfully local, no frills, picnic table style. Can watch your pizza being made if you want to. Can even buy a t-shirt or 2. Other than that the pizza is so... More
