Typical dishes are scialatielli with seafood, ravioli alla caprese, gnocchi alla Sorrento. Not least, the desserts, including lemon delights, sfogliatelle santa rosa, and obviously the baba al limoncello.

The cheese-making tradition located in the coastal area has many expressions: from riavulillo (small cheese stuffed with olives and hot peppers) to the Provolone del Monaco, to the “treccia” and mozzarella various forms and weight.
