With more tourism than Naples, the area around Sorrento has fewer cheap and cheerful restaurants for locals. The charming trattorie stay open right through August and serve excellent cuisine. As a rule of thumb, avoid set menus (often listed menu turistico) and go for whatever looks freshest to you. Remember that fish and steak prices on menus are often indicated by a price per 100 grams (that is, prezzo per etto). Look carefully if it seems suspiciously cheap!
