Expert review of Fauno Bar

Visit Fauno's in Sorrento's Piazza Tasso for brunch, lunch and people-watching opportunities.

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 and drink: 

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).

Ambience: 

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. 

Service: 

It has surprisingly friendly service, considering how busy the place gets, but it can be brisk at times.

Location: 

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. 

Price advice: 

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.

Tables to book: 

The tables at the front are obviously the ones to go for if you want the best people-watching opportunities.
