southern italy suggestions
will be traveling to Positano,Amalfi, Sorrento and Naples with daytrip to Capri and Pompeii, anyone have suggestions for restaurants they like in any of these places??looking for few high end special places and also will have 3 teenages with us so also places that you enjoyed. Thank you in advance.
By the number of places you plan on visiting, I hope you are planning on being there at least a week!
A second vote for Da Adolfo - fantastic food, so relaxing and the teenagers should enjoy exploring the rocks and the water.
We always enjoy a very civilized aperitivo at sunset on the terrace at Hotel Il San Pietro just outside of Positano for one of our high-end evenings.
We also love dinner at Le Tre Sorelle, right on the beach in Positano. Great for people watching and a great selection of food - from pizza to fantastic grilled seafood.
Assuming you have a smart phone (or at least the teenagers do), I can highly recommend the Amalfi Coast Travel Essentials app. It has great suggestions for eating, drinking, shopping, transportation, etc., for Positano, Amalfi and Capri.
Positano: Alici (if available) or any seafood at Da Vincenzo
Sorrento: Inn Bufalito for very fresh buffalo mozzarella, I had the best mozzarella of all my years living in Italy at this place. That being said, I haven't been to many restaurants in Sorrento and the key to good mozz is freshness, so that could be true elsewhere.
Naples: Pizza pizza. Da Michele, Sorbillo, Pizzeria del Presidente, everyone has an opinion which is the best.
In Capri you can have an easy beach day with teenagers at the beach club, Bagni Tibero. My favorite place in all of the Amalfi Coast is Da Adolfo, a rustic beach restaurant that you reach by boat from Positano.
For high end I recommend La Sponda at the Sirenuse in Positano and the elegant Il Riccio in Capri has an entire room just for dessert!
