Great Shop and Service
Oct 2019
On a recent visit to Sorrento, I was delighted to discover Vizi e Sfizi in via Fuoro, centrally located and in the middle of everything. I selected Piemme limoncello and the wonderful lemon soap. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the cashier wrapped the limoncello in bubble wrap for packing in my checked suitcase. The whole experience could not have been more enjoyable and when I think of Sorrento my memories include Vizi e Sfizi.

One scoop ice-cream €4.50
Oct 2019
I was here with the kids, ordered 4 ice creams at the counter outside and got charged €18 for 4 small ice creams in a cup.
Obviously they don’t care showing price lists because they want to charge you the highest possible. Okay, Capri is an expensive destination but this place exaggerates with their prices. Be aware if you visit this beautiful island.

Horrible Service! Rude and aggressive people!
Sep 2019 • Solo
I walked into the store to browse around. I touched their products but as soon as I decided not to buy them, a lady with short brown hair approach me and treated me like a thief. Not only the short hair lady, I also found all their employees aggressive and rude. Worst family owned/runned souvier store in the area. Avoid going here.

Extremely rude - Never go in here
Oct 2019 • Couples
My wife and I were visiting the store to look at some candies, cookies, wine, etc. My wife was around candy section and I was at the wine section. After few minutes, I heard the short-lady working there yelling something at my wife and my wife said we need to leave. I asked my wife what she did and all she had done was pick up some boxes of candy to look at them. The short lady working there had an issue with the fact that my wife didn't put the boxes back the way they were exactly arranged before. As my wife was explaining the situation to me, the lady yelled "Horrible people! Shut up and leave!" and physically pushed my wife out.

We first got out of the store, but decided we want to talk to the store owner or manager of that person. When we entered the store the short lady kept saying over and over "I'm not going to talk to you." When I asked "What did she do wrong?" the Itallian guy working there started yelling things in mixed Itallian and English. He told us to leave, said "we'll call the police", etc and physically pushed us out.

We were treated like a pair thief when we had done nothng wrong. Everyone on the street were looking at us and we were extremely humiliating to be treated this way.

Judging from the previous negative reviews posted here, this is not a one time thing. People working there are extremely rude, if not out of their ordinary mind. They are crazy. Perhaps, they do not trust foreign tourist. Perhaps, they are racist and just wanted to kick out a young Asian couple from their store. Whatever the reason may be, this is the worst experience we ever had at a store.

Something out of an Italian horror film
Sep 2019 • Friends
It can seem that someone leaving a negative review might be highly emotional or out to hurt someone’s business. This review is really for the reader to do with as they wish - but know that I have never left a negative review. My friends and I travel frequently both for work and holiday. We are used to variances in how different cultures relate socially. The staff here is exceptionally rude and not in that charming Italian sort of way. I’m a New Yorker so I’m not easily offended but the two women we dealt with went above and beyond to openly accuse us of first taking photos, then of lying, and finally of being cheap. We actually don’t know what set them off. It could have been that my friend pulled out his phone to google a restaurant or possibly that another friend picked up a candle to purchase and then put it back. We aren’t sure but the woman began yelling (I’m not exaggerating) and ordering us to leave. I was holding several boxes of chocolates that another woman grabbed out of my hands so forcefully she scratched me. We tried to ask what the issue was but she continued to yell “rude” and that we were “taking photos”. We left without much protest (because it wasn’t worth it) and she continued to yell for security as we walked out. I looked online because I almost started to take this experience personally and found that THIS SHOP IS RATED IN THE BOTTOM 10 OF ALL SHOPS IN SORRENTO. I felt better and decided to leave another warning amongst the dozens that already exist.

Terrible Experience
Sep 2019 • Friends
Went to this store today and had one of the worst experiences ever had in a tourist shop. I was with my husband and a couple friends perusing. While my husband was collecting gifts to buy, my friends and I were have a discussion and we were rude approached and told ‘they knew some English and heard what you were saying...get out.’ First off, we were not talking about anything exciting, other then going a trip together to another destination. Second, when I tried to ask what she was talking about she wouldn’t answer and just kept telling my friends to get out and that they were cheap. Another employee promptly took the stuff my husband was planning to buy out of his hands and told us to leave as well. What terrible people. Just avoid it at all costs. I’ve never written a bad review before today on TripAdvisor- but this experience justified it!

Wine shop with very very good selection!

Was a stop on our tour with Valentina, we sample some wine and other goodies with a presentation by one of the owners. So good and prices resonable we did have a selection sent home to America! And of course Sorrento is drop dead beautiful!!!

Workers are rude
Aug 2018 • Family
The things in the store are fine, nothing wrong with them. But the workers are so rude, They will get back if you touch something or pick it up. It's ridiculous, one time I was in there and I was taking a picture of a magnet and got yelled at, so I told my brother to go take a picture of it. He did and the lady came over to me and yelled at me for telling him to do it. 2 years later I went back into that store. I walked in and was looking at something, it was something like a folding mirror. So of course I picked it up and looked at it, the lady rushed over to me and said something like " you think I am stupid? I remember you". So overall I do NOT like this store.

Aggressive and rude staff
May 2019 • Friends
This is a terrible shop that I would encourage everyone to actively avoid. When looking at some products, I pulled out my phone to check my email, a female employee reacted extremely negatively and accused me of taking photos (there was a no photos sign posted, unclear why they would care if someone was taking photos of their wine however). Even after making it clear that I was not taking any photos, the employee was extremely hostile. As we left the store, another employee at the door craned her head to look inside my bag as if we were stealing their product!

Horrible staff, just imagine what kind of experience would make someone take the time to write a review of an otherwise generic souvenir shop.
