I could send you my notes about Amalfi Coast and Penisola Sorrentina.
But the language is Italian.
If you want, feel free to e-mail me.

Ciao.

Vincenzo

find a copy of Carla Capalba's book on food in Naples and Campania - it will guide you to all kinds of restaurants and artisanal producers. Check Slowfood also. I dont know offhand about Maiori, but there is a fine bakery and also Mansi, a wellknown maker of limoncello in Minori (his son also has a nice wine shop selling the limoncello and other things on the street in Ravello that has Cumpa Cosimo, a friendly restaurant you will probably find yourself visiting. Each of the towns along that coast (as well as the villages back in the mountains) have something to offer. You should also try to get down to Paestum - in addition to the temples and some very good restaurants, there are the farms where the mozzarella di bufala is made. March is still low season;the music is not on in Ravello, only crazies will be swimming and many places will be closed or quiet; you may catch some rain but its a beautiful place at all seasons, and enough will be open for you to enjoy.

Carla's book is The Food and Wine Guide to Naples and Campania and is fantastic. The only listing for Maiori in her book is Il Faro di Capo d'Orso.

Yes ekscrunchy, send me your e-mail and I send you my notes about Amalfi Coast and my beloved Penisola Sorrentina.
To read it is also a lovely excercise to improve your Italian.
Ciao.

Hi Vicenzo! I am back at home now and about to write to you again to take you up on your kind offer to send me your notes on eating in Campania.

I will be in the region at the end of next month and will be looking for good eating experiences in both Naples and on the coast..will probably start a new thread related to Naples eating!

I would also be interested in exploring food markets..can you recommend one in Naples? Pignasecca? Porta Nolana??
