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