Non-Italian restaurants

Does anyone know if there're any ethnic restaurants in Sorrento? I do tend to tire of Italian food quite quickly i.e. by about the third day! Get cravings for spicy Asian food in particular. Couldn't see anything in the reviews.

There may be some, but it appears an Italian full house as far as TA's listings are concerned!

Look for Italian dishes with peperoncino (chilli) in the ingredients. It's not all pizza and pasta you will also find grilled fish, steaks, roast chicken etc.

Many years ago there used to be a Chinese resto but it closed due to lack of customers.

Lesson learnt....

When on the TA restaurants page, click the blueish "More Cuisines" - to see, duuh, more cuisines!

Thanks all of you. We always carry chili sprinkles! I've had some lovely seafood salads. I'm a bit limited as I don't eat meat and some of the fish mains are a bit steep.

I guess most Europeans outside the cities are happy with their own cuisine as many british are. In London like the US cuties we're used to so much variety. I think these bread baskets are an appetite killer! Can't help eat it though.

We'll try the Japanese.

With the exception of the large Italian cities of Rome, Venice and Milan, eating out in Italy only gives the option of Italian or the local cuisine. From my experience Sorrento is no exception. There was a Chinese restaurant in the town but that closed a few years ago.

Having said that, there is still a good choice of things to eat even if one sticks to the local Neapolitan/Sorrentese cuisine - a lot of fish and seafood dishes, a variety of pasta dishes, many pizzas, salads, grilled steaks - all simply prepared using the freshest of ingredients - delicious.

Enjoy!

I understand that Thailand and Vietnam cater for this type of culinary perversion..

I almost went home early because there were no deep fried Mars bars to be found anywhere in Sorrento and missed the rich variety of artery clogging cuisine found in our great British cities........;-)

There's a lot more to the local cuisine than pasta doused in red sauce, and gnocchi done in the style of Sorrento... look around and even there you may be able to find a few of these treats:

If worst comes to worst, scoot over to Naples - where "More Cuisines" does mean just that!

.... although not all the city's eateries are classified correctly:
