Expert review of Da Franco

This is a great no-frills pizza place in Sorrento city centre.

Paper plates, plastic cutlery and snappy service - but what fabulous pizza!

Food and drink: 

Pizza is the deal here: they've got a variety, including the hot alla diavolo (pepperoni and chilli oil) but I went for the margherita (tomato and mozzarella) and wasn't disappointed. Come with an appetite, they're enormous. The hams hanging from the ceiling aren't merely for decoration either: you can have a plate of ham, cheese and/or aubergines in oil as an appetiser.

Ambience: 

There's a thriving takeaway service here but, if you fancy a seat, take a pew. The decor, something akin to a Swiss chalet - all wooden tables and bench seating - won't win any awards, but you're here for the pizza and so is everyone else.

Service: 

The service is snappy (quick and a little brusque), but one of Da Franco's punters has set up a Facebook page so clearly it's not that bad…

Location: 

It's opposite the Giardini di Cataldo towards the end of Corso Italia.

Price advice: 

Probably the cheapest meal you'll have in Sorrento (I'm happy to be contradicted on this one). Pizzas cost 6 euros for a margherita, with toppings, ie mushrooms, for an additional 0.50 cents or so. Coffee costs 1.30 euros while a beer or a soft drink is 2 euros.
