Expert review of Fauno Bar
As it takes up half of Piazza Tasso, there's little that happens in Sorrento that can't be observed from a seat on Il Fauno's terrace. It's size means that you can almost always get a seat and, for central Sorrento, the food's not bad either. It's also one of the few options that are open between 3-6pm (when many restaurants close).
Food is simple - pasta, pizza, sandwiches, salads - and it's unlikely to win any awards, but as it's central, open between 3-6pm and stays open reasonably late, it's always full. In the evening it also attracts those looking for a beer or cocktail (a few free nibbles are supplied when you order a drink).
The atmosphere is relaxed during the day and a bit more buzzy in the evening. Unsurprisingly, thanks to it's location, it's usually full of tourists: there are more families during the day and a younger contingent as the night goes on.
It has surprisingly friendly service, considering how busy the place gets, but it can be brisk at times.
It's slap bang in the centre of Sorrento. There are a clutch of similar bars close by but Il Fauno is the largest (and most recently refurbished) and usually most popular.
Sandwiches cost around 8 euros, it's 12 euros for a plate of pasta, pizza or a salad, and a cocktail costs around 9 euros.
The tables at the front are obviously the ones to go for if you want the best people-watching opportunities.
