Forza Italia!

Again with a great recommendation, we tried a tiny restaurant off of Via ┬áCorso Italia, which is the main drag, Kebab Ciampa. It’s owned by two brothers who are colorful to say the least. I can’t fully explain in words how much fun we had at this tiny hole in the wall.

Its like the Italian equivalent of a cheesesteak- chicken or beef, your choice of veggies, and they bake the Italian bread in the shape of a pita. Molto bene!

When we sat down, the Italia vs. Spagna football game was starting. Not soon after we sat down, Italia scored their first goal. We were then told not to leave because we were good luck. Me being the crazy sports fan I am fully believes that. (It’s only weird if it doesn’t work right?) After we were done, Mom and I roamed the streets for a while and the boys stayed put to watch the game. Sports hype is universal, no?

We came back later after the 45th minute and eventually Italia scored their second goal! Apparently it was us that were the good luck charms. One of the owners kissed his miraculous medal and came running and screaming out of the restaurant. We laughed, we cheered, we quickly got out of the way for the crazy football guy to take a victory lap, all in good fun. Definitely an experience and we were glad to see Italia win.

…. Everyone else in Sorrento was too. Peaceful cheering after the game.
