We were following the line of shops along Via San Cesareo and cut through an arch in a building which opened up on the even narrower via degli Archi.
There will be the sniffy travellers who see only an alley but in the short distance it took us to walk its length there was a tiny sweet shop specialising in a range of bagged sweets including the sugar coated nuts which always go down well with the family and this tiny restaurant with a handful of tables inside and offering these two out on the street.
It was called L’Angolo Del Gusto or the Tasty Corner and its one review described it as a family run “café and bakery [with] good food that is very reasonably priced.
Now given that we had paid €75 for a meal the Tasty Corner had an appeal but I couldn't fault where we had eaten and our position commanded a fine spot to watch as people went by so I was content.
I suppose I should have slid across and asked the couple if they were local but it isn’t the done thing.
So I shall just leave you at the tasty corner on hot day in Sorrento in late July with that observation that when is a new place never be afraid to wander off the beaten track.
