Porto A Marina

After a full morning exploring Pompeii, we decided to head south towards the coast.  We stopped at Sorrento, a small fishing port city, for lunch.  We walked along the marina and ate at Porta A Marina, which had outdoor seating with an impeccable view.  The ambience was so charming too, with fishnets strewn about, colorful fishing boats, and the deep blue sea.

View of the hotels and shops up along the mountain.

The menu features fresh seafood caught daily.  We ordered a few dishes to share.  The caprese salad was plentiful with thick juicy Sorrento tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.  It was served on a bed of lettuce.  The fried sardines were perfectly cooked with their own natural saltiness and a large squirt of lemon juice.  The steamed mussels were to.die.for.  They were so fresh, and simply steamed with butter, garlic, and herbs.  They were pink, white, and orange in color.  We soaked up the mussel broth with the fresh Italian bread.  We washed down our meal with a bottle of sparkling water and soaked in the glorious view before continuing on our road trip along the coast.
