La Favorita—'O Parrucchiano Review

This restaurant is in a sprawling, multilevel, high-ceiling greenhouse and orchard, with tables and chairs set amid enough tropical greenery to fill a Victorian conservatory. The effect is enchantingly 19th century. Opened in 1868 by an ex-priest ('o Parrucchiano means "the priest's place" in the local dialect), La Favorita continues to serve classic Sorrentine cuisine. The shrimp baked in lemon leaves, cannelloni, homemade Sorrentine pasta, chocolate and hazelnut cake, and lemon profiteroles are all excellent, but they can't compete with the unique interior.

    can't understand why it is still recommended

    Very touristy and impersonal and resting on its history of once being one of the best restaurants in Sorrento. It is an unusual garden like multilevel setting, but definitely one is treated like a tourist and not a guest and there is a "hurry up and pack'em in mentality" The food is very mediocre and not really fresh. It was our only negative dining experience in Italy. You won't find many local folks dining there, that is for sure.

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

    This place is a food "mill." Very pretty and large garden setting at the top of the stairs so go in, go up, take a look, but don't eat here. We had a table in the corner so we could watch everything! There was no one seating people so people came in and looked confused and seated themselves. Very bad service. We could not get the waiter to bring the bill even though we asked, so we ended up going to the cashier where we complained about the service. Food was mediocre; house wine swill.
