I had a chance to visit this restaurant in December 2014. Too many good things to say about this restaurant so I really don't know where to start! Let's start from exceptional food quality and super-talented Chef Gennaro Esposito who was able to satisfy every single expectation. Our degustation menu was fantastic, elaborated and simple at the same time. Each... More

Our party of four had the chef Gennaro Esposito choose some appetizers and this time we wanted to try a "simple" spaghetti al pomodoro as entree. If you can surprise 3 italian and 1 dutch lovers of pasta with spaghetti... More

We have eaten in many Michelin Star restaurants and this was one of the best EVER. Our only disappointment was that we had no time for a return... More

Delicious food based on local dishes and ingredients reinterpreted by Genaro Sposito in a dream location! Great service and nowhere a hint of arrogance to be seen. THE recommendation for a superb restaurant in this beautiful corner of the world!
