eating/dining out

Maybe kkushiba1 can give some advice. As mentioned previously will we heading to Battipaglia Saturday July 21. But can you inform us about some addresses were we can eat out with children of 9 7 and 5 years old. Should be informal like as I think they will not like the idea of sitting hours at the dining table.

Can you also tell me from your point of view which island can be viewed best for a daytrip and can you take the boat to these islands in salerno as well

One of the things we would like to do as well is the drive the amalficoast do you have some inside tips which way to use were you can find for example on the way the best ice cream the nicest viewpoints etc etc

Many thanks in advance.

Salerno, Italia

Dear hama61,

There are many pizzerias in downtown Battipaglia and I'm pretty sure that the agriturismo where you're staying at has a good restaurant with tables outdoors. In general, in case you'd like to order take-out pizza, you can look for a place selling "pizza da asporto." Also, rosticerrias sell slices of pizza and hot dishes and these places are well-equipped to pack food to go.

I'd wager that the people running the restaurant wouldn't mind if its patrons dressed casually, and the children could probably excuse themselves to play in the open space near the tables without the staff or other patrons complaining or caring too much:


Here are a couple of web sites for some restaurants in downtown Battipaglia, however, these places might be more formal than the La Morella agriturismo restaurant. Again you'll probably find more restaurants in downtown Battipaglia and near the Lido/ocean:






Supposedly, the best place to get ricotta a pera/pear flavored ricotta stuffed in a flakey cookie/pastry is at De Riso in Minori, however, we prefer the Gambardella family's pasticceria/bakery near the Roman Ruins. De Riso also sells gelato and they have a nice outside area where you can sit and watch the ocean across the street.

You can take a very early ferry from Salerno Molo Manfredi to Capri or to Ischia with the Linee Marittime Partenopee people. Their ticket booth is on the left side of the row of ticket offices at Molo Manfredi. You can park in the parking lot behind the Jolly Hotel or the lot closer to the yellow Dogana building and the Porto Vecchio restaurant. You can walk through the gates and head left to the white tents to buy your ferry tickets or you can go through the ugly path on the railroad tracks which lead to the same ticket places under the white tents:


When you're on the SS163 road from Salerno to pretty much Sorrento, you'll see several tiny vista points where you can park your car and walk to the edge of a cliff to see out to the ocean. A famous point is Capo d'Orso/the bear's head which is right after Cetara after the tunnel. The problem is that if you're heading from Salerno to Amalfi, the vista points are on the left-hand side so it'd be tricky to cross the street and park. You might plan your trip Mon-Fri when there might be less traffic.

Also, you might head to smaller inland towns like Furore, Conca dei Marini, Afragola, Liparlati, and even Vettica Maggiore to see some great views of the costiera, however, the whole area offers some incredible views in general.

You might also consider taking ferries from Salerno Porto Turistico (park your car at Salerno Piazza della Concordia or the lot across the street) to Positano or Amalfi if you feel that traffic is going to be a mess:



Buona Fortuna...
