Went here and had samples or wine and limoncello. Shipped home and had great prices on wine and the limoncello. Do not buy by Tasso square with the high prices or shipping and product walk down the hill and bit and you will be happy with the savings. Owner was a very informative and so was his helper.

The shop offers a variety of liquors, wine, cheese etc but carries the lemonchello made in Sorrento an probably the best. The owner (older) gentleman is the person to speak with as the middle age man is very condescending and has no patience for questions etc . It's obvious the older of the two is patienate about his business .

Very helpful to buy Limoncello to bring to the States. Knowledgeable on how much you can bring back without paying duty. Had pricing to ship back to States but decided to bring back in suitcase. She bubbled wrapped and even had plastic bottles available.

We happened on this friendly shop while looking for wines to ship home to the US. Giovanni and his father were so helpful and located the wines I needed and offered suggestions. Reasonable shipping rates also! Recommended in Rick Steves book and Giovanni even signed our book for us!! A friendly and good sport!

We stopped in on a recent cruise to have some Limoncello & Balsamic Vinegars shipped back to the US. We ended up with a rather large order & picked up some Grappa as well. Carmine was helpful & patient as we made our selections. Then gave us an excellent recommendation for lunch at Tasso. When we arrived at the restaurant... More

We were disappointed in the wine shops on the main streets in Sorrento, with a limited choice and often with high prices for what was on offer. We were on our way back from the lift from the port when we found the Corner Shop and our luck turned. It is a fabulous and well-organised shop, with a very good... More

We came across this shop while walking around Sorrento, eager to grab a bottle of wine for our overnight train ride from Napoli to Taormina, Sicily. I believe we were helped by the store owner who offered us some great suggestions. I wish we could have stayed longer and browsed a little more !

I visited The Corner shop on the strength of Trip Advisor views. What a fabulous shop! All so organised! Tasted some Limoncello which was new to me and delicious. The owner's lovely daughter spoke very good English and spent time explaining how the drink was made. The bottles I bought were wrapped and I collected them after my wanderings. Thanks... More
