Welcome to the homeland of gourmet! Sorrento, and its coast, provides its visitors with exceptional cuisine. It is not by chance that in this peninsula can be found the highest number of nationally “starred” restaurants is available. From Seiano, through Sorrento and on to Massa Lubrense there are plenty of top class spots where cuisine is an art . Also humble trattorias still offer you a delicious dish of fried fish or a pizza. Why is that?
Excellent ingredients, vegetables produced in the area, old traditions and influences of other cultures. Campania Felix has indeed been crossed by many different peoples who have all left their traces over the centuries. But also the search for excellence which is fundamental in every field has played its role. It is in this territory that struffoli, a typical Christmas dessert, is cooked as it was 2000 years ago.
They were brought by the Greeks when Neapolis was founded. And then the Arabs, the Normans, the Spaniards, and the French came… The result? A cuisine which will astonish you.
