Sorrento is a beautiful town perched on a cliff high above the sea with views of Vesuvius and the islands in the Bay of Naples . Use this website to help you plan a visit to this elegant southern Italian resort and find your way to the best beaches and some lovely villages and towns along the Sorrentine peninsula that are perhaps less well known to tourists.


Sample Sorrentine specialities at VerdeMare restaurant

VerdeMare Ristorante
Just outside the centre of Sorrento, VerdeMare Ristorante Pizzeria serves authentic Sorrentine dishes for less than you might pay in the middle of town.
The restaurant is only five minutes by bus, car or taxi from the centre of Sorrento. Or you could walk to it in about half an hour along Corso Italia and Via del Capo in the direction of  Punta del Capo enjoying the view over Marina Grande and the sea along the way as you climb the hill.
You will find the VerdeMare on the left hand side at the junction of Via del Capo and Via Nastro Verde.
You can either dine on the terrace and watch motorists negotiate the tricky junction with a serene sea view in the distance, or inside the large, airy restaurant decorated with framed newspaper front pages commemorating famous events, such as landing on the moon and Italy winning the world cup.
The quality of the food more than makes up for the restaurant’s proximity to the main road and there is an extensive menu to choose from.
Among the antipasti, I would recommend gamberi e rucola (fresh prawns on a bed of rocket in a delicious lemon dressing) or alici marinati (marinated anchovies).
Among the pasta dishes look out for scialatielli (short, home made strips) with frutti di mare (seafood) or alla siciliana (with tomatoes, aubergines and cheese).
The restaurant’s speciality is spaghetti alla VerdeMare, with a rich tomato, vegetable and seafood sauce.
For main courses there is an good choice of fish, veal and steak dishes and an extensive pizze list.
A  two course meal for four, with vegetables, two bottles of wine and water came to €100.
Verdemare Ristorante Pizzeria is closed on Wednesdays. Tel: +39 081 8782589.
Salute e Buon Appetito!
