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).
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.
