Ristorante la Favorita O Parrucchiano - Sorrento
Restaurant of antique tradition founded in 1868 by Antonino Ercolano, a seminarist that learnt the art of cooking in the kitchen of the local archiepiscopal seminary. He transformed two rooms on the main road, ‘Corso Italia’, into a tiny ‘Trattoria’ and named it ‘La Favorita’. Many of his friends started to frequent his trattoria and because of his past vocation to priesthood, Antonino gained the nickname ‘O Parrucchiano’, which stands for parish-priest in Neapolitan dialect. In the forties Antonino, AKA ‘O Parrucchiano’, who did not have any heirs, left the trattoria to his young nephew Giuseppe Manniello, who having lost his father at the tender age of 7, had been brought up by him as his own. Giuseppe, to whom his uncle had taught all his secrets about cooking, improved the tiny trattoria, enlarging and bringing it to a higher level and making the now renowned cuisine famous all over the world. In its over than 100 years’ life many important figures in the world of art, culture, sport, business have stopped here to savour our culinary delights so that the Restaurant was deservedly accepted in the exclusive ‘Association of Historical Places of Italy’. World wide famous for having invented about a hundred years ago the popular dish of ‘Cannelloni’, then called ‘Strascinati’, the restaurant today, together with traditional dishes, offers new ones which exalt the aromas and the flavours of the Mediterranean and of the Gulf of Naples. It is now managed by Enzo Manniello, Giuseppe’s son, who with his simplicity and affable manner greets his guests and takes them up the stairway leading from the historical XVIII century rooms of the ‘Trattoria’ to the enchanted garden, where the scent of lemon and orange blossoms mingles with the fragrance of the flowers. Giuseppe Manniello Jr and his brother Mario are already in their way to collecting this important heritage handed down through four generations.
