Great little restaurant worth a detour to Sorrento

Antipasti at Inn Bufalito, photo by Shannon

We found this restaurant by chance walking around the touristy area of Sorrento. Not wanting to go to one of the places on the main streets with the guys out in front with menus, we spotted a sign down a side street and found Inn Bufalito.

We had a fantastic lunch here - really, the best thing that came out of our day trip to Sorrento. They are a "Slow Food" restaurant specializing in foods made from the local buffalo, but they have lots of other options as well.

We started with an antipasti of sliced buffalo salami, some local cheeses, a marinated squash that was absolutely delicious, and a bit of broccoli rabe they call "friggolini." Then we both had pasta - fusilli with sausage and zucca (pumpkin) for me, and spaghetti with pecorino and fresh mussels for Colleen. Both were plate-lickingly good.

We had house red wine with our meal, but splurged on two special grappas - one was barrel aged. They were smooth and went down quite nicely, not to mention they made the bus trip back to Positano a little more pleasurable.

Service was great. Our server lived in London so he spoke perfect English and he was very efficient and helpful.

The total bill was 51 euros, of which 13 was for the grappas.
