Pizza is one of my favorite foods. Freshly-made traditional Italian pizza is even better. I only had one when visiting Sorrento in Italy but I might very well have picked the best!
Last year I had the opportunity to explore Sorrento in Italy as I went for 10 nights to get married and enjoy a honeymoon. Although I stayed in a fantastic hotel serving great food going half-board meant there was little opportunity to eat out. On our last night in Sorrento, we decided to all meet up (newlyweds and guests) to have a meal out of the hotel.
For me there was only one place I wanted to go – a traditional Italian pizza restaurant with wood burning oven. It probably helps that I love pizza anyway even in the UK…
….but eating traditionally-made pizza in Italy was an experience I couldn’t miss.
After asking at the hotel, we were recommended Pizzeria Aurora. Conveniently located in the middle of Sorrento at Piazza Tasso, it has a choice of indoor or outdoor seating and more importantly, a traditional wood oven with freshly-made pizza.
The menu was overflowing with a choice of toppings and I can’t imagine that anyone wouldn’t be able to choose something they like. I opted for my usual meat fare and asked for some added spicy pepperoni, which they were more than happy to do.
The entire meal was enjoyable (we had a lovely tomato bruschetta starter) but the pizza was the main attraction. I can honestly say hand on heart it was the nicest pizza I’ve ever had in my life. I wasn’t the only one who enjoyed it either as the other guests were just as happy with theirs.
Now back in the UK, I’m still more than happy to eat local pizza but none are or ever will be as good as that at Pizzeria Aurora. If you happen to find yourself in the area, I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
