    Overlooking rows of olive trees that seem to run into the sea, this superb eatery is away from the throng, halfway between Sant'Agata and Massa Lubrense.

    A gastronomic giant and pioneer in upscale farm-to-table cuisine (it even grows its own produce on a small farm nearby), Don Alfonso is considered one of Italy's best restaurants. It's a family affair, with mamma (Livia) handling the dining room, papà (former chef Alfonso Iaccarrino) tending to the organic plot, one son working as the current chef (preparing classic dishes alongside edgier creations), and the other serving as maître d'. For an extra splurge you can stay at their self-styled boutique hotel with a range of vibrantly decorated rooms and a heating pool.

    Sorrentine favorites, including acquerello (fresh fish appetizer) and ravioli with crab and zucchini sauce, are tweaked creatively here. The staff is warm and helpful, the singer on the sound system is the long-departed "fourth tenor" himself, and the operatic memorabilia (including posters and old photos of Caruso) is displayed in a flattering blush-pink light.

    To escape the pricey and sometimes ersatz-Italian eating experience, head up the hill to this gem of a pizzeria, which is loaded with local warmth and flavor. Don't be put off by the tattered building, with its peeling pink paint, no-frills interior, and TV invariably broadcasting a soccer match. Eating a huge pizza with a Peroni beer on the panoramic terrace here might be among your most memorable Sorrentine moments.

    Near the steps of the Marina Grande, this reliable choice for seafood (established in 1947) might not be Sorrento's most visually prepossessing place, but its homespun, family feel—complete with wooden tables and checked tablecloths—is a refreshing change from the town's (occasionally pretentious) elegance.
