Review of Hotel La Solara, Sorrento, Italy by Paul Atherton
At Easter I travelled with my wife and daughter to the Hotel La Solara in Sorrento, Italy. After years of holidays seeking out suitable places to eat this hotel has to be the best. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They even arranged for the Sunday Gala Dinner a separate coeliac friendly alternatives just for us. It is the only holiday that both my wife and daughter have complained of over-eating.
As for the resort itself they are very weill informed, we even managed to get gluten free pasta and pizzas too. If you are planning to visit Pompei it is well worth a visit.
We ate breakfast and evening meals only, they provided gluten free cereals for breakfast, and would prepare bread that we had brought with us. Lunches were available but we did quite a bit of sight seeing so rarely took advantage on it. Several restaurants in Sorrento were able to provide gluten free meals.
Evening meals were generally a choice of four starters and four main courses for regular guests but they would advise which meals could be prepared gluten free or ask what you would like prepared for the following evening. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were excellent, although the individual pasta portions were huge. Gala dinners are spectacular with several courses, my wife begged them to make smaller portions for the following week and they duly obliged. Marcello runs the restaurant, just let him know your requirements at the start of the holiday and leave everything else to him, he even ensured that there were ample vegetarian gluten free meals for my wife. Please take a look at Tripadvisor .
It may not be in the centre of Sorrento but with a free hourly bus service provided it is no hassle. Over half the guests commented during the time we stayed over Easter which shows how much the hotel and the food is appreciated. As the non celiac in the party I have to say it was the best holiday I have been on for some time as I did not have to worry about the food choices for my wife and daughter.
