Foodie Fridays Are Back!

Foodie Friday 4 – Seafood in Sorrento

I’ve been horrible at keeping up with this blog over the last month and a half, but things are picking up again, which means Fridays are once again dedicated to food!

Last weekend, some friends and I headed down to Sorrento, a small town just south of Naples that lies at the northern end of the Amalfi Coast.  It’s famous for its lemons and limoncello, a digestif (alcoholic drink that supposedly aids digestion and is meant to be enjoyed after a meal).  It’s a quaint, touristy little town – perfect for our off-season weekend getaway.

Dinner in Sorrento was great.  We happened upon a restaurant with a covered outdoor seating area right by the water, and the waiters arranged the tables for us so that we could all sit and enjoy the view.

Since we were by the coast, I decided to splurge on their sea bass special.  It was delicious!  Perfectly prepared and just the right amount of food.

After dinner, we headed back up the hill (via the restaurant’s complimentary shuttle service!) to find the gelato stand that sells my roommate’s favorite hazelnut gelato in all of Italy.  I had the nocciola (hazelnut) and stracciatella (chocolate chip) – yum!  And it was so good I forgot to take a picture… I’d say that’s one of the best nocciola flavors I’ve tried.  But my search for the best pistacchio continues!
