I, with my husband have been to Sorrento 6 times and its a fabulous place. The Foreigners bar near to the Hotel Tramontano is a nice venue. Restaurants that I would recommend are Antico and Lanterna 1 and 2. All three are tucked away in the drains. The bars in the square are nice too. They used to have a singer and buskers but they were not there when we visited in September this year. I know is a year round resort, but alot of the hotels close at the end of October, so not sure if these restaurants will be open or not.

I really don't know why people call the central part of Sorrento the Drains, this is a thing that has developed over the last few years,and not at all fitting for a lively shopping area, and am sure it is not something the locals approve of,

My favourite restaurants in Sorrento are Da Delfino in Marina Grande and La Fenice on via degli Aranci. They both serve excellent local cuisine with friendly and efficient service. The setting of Da Delfino is perfect - set on the water with views directly over the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. La Fenice also serves excellent pizzas. Other great places for pizzas are Da Gigino on via degli Archi and Pizzeria Aurora on Piazza Tasso. They are all very reasonably priced.

Three of my favorites are

Tasso - just off the main square

Photo - just a little bit past Tasso

The garden restaurnat - on corso italia, you will walk by this wine bar many times while strolling along at night. It is my favourite restaurant in Sorrento !

We go regularly twice a year and these are our favourites although you will find many to choose from.

Down the 'drains' - the lovely old part of town with very narrow lanes - here generally the prices are lower than on Tasso:

Da Giginos - very good family run Trattoria serving everything from stone baked pizzas, fresh seafood and pasta through to chateaubriand. Very reasonably priced and has a few tables outside if you arrive early enough or preferably book the night before.

La Lanterna 1 - also a very good all rounder with some outside seating.

5* Restaurants:

Carusos or Il Buco for a special evening out - not cheap.

Aurora on Tasso (main) Square serves 50 different types of pizza and fresh pasta. (Very pushy staff who insist on calling you 'boss' but the food is good!) Next door is O'Canonico owned by the same family which has a more varied menu.

Azzurros down in Marina Grande (the small harbour!) run by an eccentric Irish / Italian family serving excellent seafood and other Italian food where you can sit out on a deck on the beach.

We also like the little wine bar on the Corso Italia which is attached to the Gardens Restaurant although when we last went in September we thought the prices had risen and not in relation to the measure you get!

Our favourite bar is situated just off Tasso Square opposite Auroras next to the Church where you can have a glass of Stella and very large measure of Pinot Grigio for 9 euros. Tables are under a canopy on a sloping side of the road where you can indulge in people watching. They also serve snacks which are very popular.

Sure you will have a great time - we have booked again for 5 night next week but are watching the weather closely!

Agree with previous posts that Da Delfino (Marina Grande area) and La Fenice (along the bus route to Piazza Tasso) tend to be local favorites, particularly among those from the UK.

Are either of your teens a girl? If so, there is a sweet little (very little)shop a few blocks from Piazza Tasso (actually, about 2 blocks from Piazza Lauro) called Petronius, 20 Viale Nizza. It is a trendy clothing store, appealing, I would say, primarily to ages 13-25,(although I have picked up a few things for myself) everything extremely inexpensive (maybe 5e for a top). I've taken my daughter there several times, and she always feels as though she is able to come away with fun, inexpensive souvenirs that she can wear. The store does close for siesta/lunch from around 13:00 to 17:00 (1-5 PM) or thereabouts, but worth the effort if your daughter is in the market for a few items. The selection for the summer is excellent; however, I cannot speak for the other seasons.
