Expert review of Photo

Sorrento's bar/restaurant/gallery, all in one.

Photo might well be Sorrento's ONLY bar/restaurant/gallery but it's a welcome addition to the nightlife scene. It's mission is to exhibit photographers all year round, whether in print or projected on screens around the bar, restaurant and in the garden, so you can check out a regularly changing display, as well as eat and drink well while being entertained by the resident DJ. 

Food and drink: 

From the nibbles that you get when you order a drink to the à la carte restaurant menu, the food is of a high standard. The chef insists on only the freshest ingredients for his dishes: a combination of traditional (arancini - rice balls - with provola (cheese) sauce and aubergine parmigiana) to the likes of seafood millefoglie (seafood layered between light pastry, or tuna with paprika and pancetta).  

Ambience: 

You walk straight into the bar area - plenty of shiny red club chairs or pod stools covered in cow hide assembled before the bar, and walls covered in whatever the latest exhibition happens to be - and that leads off to the restaurant area. Starting with a slightly 'corridor-like' entrance - a long narrow room with banquette seating and tables - you come into a much larger area with plenty more tables (wedding receptions are often held here). Then there's the lovely garden bar/restaurant. 

Service: 

On my first visit here the service was very good… I'd only nipped in for a glass of something and ended up staying for two hours thanks to a very solicitous waiter, great nibbles and a really good DJ playlist.  

Location: 

A short walk from Piazza Tasso: head past the Grand Hotel Excelsior and turn left up Via Correale. The road bends around to the right and there's Photo.
