PROSIT – Prosciutteria Italiana

Prosit restaurant Sorrento

Prosit, an abbreviation of (Prosciutteria and Italiana), is located on the quieter part of the Corso Italia just beyond the Villa Fiorentino. Racks of Parma ham and a cold counter full of traditional meats and cheeses may lead you to believe this is just a shop for local produce. Indeed it will be no surprise to learn that the family owners of this new venture have been involved in providing quality food to Sorrento since 1939 and in the late 60’s introduced the first “modern” supermarket in the whole Peninsula.

The quality and presentation of produce, from a charcuterie board to a full course menu, reflects three generations of knowledge and experience. This pride in local produce extends to the traditional craftsmanship and materials used for the interior design. Three ‘spaces’ have been created to accommodate those seeking a quick snack, an informal dining area for , and a restaurant for a more intimate lunch or dinner.

With such an excellent selection of regional meats, cheeses and wine, Prosit offers visitors the opportunity to sample the very best of local produce in comfortable surroundings. While browsing the menus why not order a cocktail from the well stocked bar. Mine’s an Old Fashioned. Salut!

Palazzo Jannuzzi

Palazzo Jannuzzi
The Palazzo Jannuzzi is located in the main square, Piazza Tasso, and was refurbished in 2011. The Jannuzzi family produced an excellent video which records the transformation of the original building to its modern equivalent. It also includes wonderful vintage photographs of the main square.

The yellow, grey and black colour theme is used in a different combination for every room and gives each its own identity. The clean lines and contrasting colours achieve a modern environment softened by the personal touch of the owners in the choice of furniture, fabrics, ornaments and paintings.

The personal touch and attention to detail is again reflected in the practical layout and individual design of the shower rooms and other facilities. This includes the lift with its glass sides and visible engineering making it more like a work of art.

The Breakfast Room is worthy of a separate mention. See Breakfast at Jannuzzi’s.
