Visa and Mastercard are generally more accepted than Amex, because Amex charges higher merchant fees. You will find small restaurants and shops may not accept any cards.

We eventually had to close our corporate Amex account as so many of the cardholders were finding they couldn't use the cards abroad, so just bring a VISA or Mastercard.

I won't speak for Sorrento as I've not tried there, but at least here on Ischia most places will accept them - though a bit grudgingly for smaller amounts!
