Wow! Amazing ... 2 Michelin star .. And the food kept coming!

Firstly. We're staying in a boutique hotel with a Michelin starred restaurant attached. Torre del Saracino beats it hands down! Cannot recommend highly enough! If we come back to Vico Equense ... We will definitely return here. The concerted watchtower restaurant is open for about 11 months... read more

Food and service of absolutely top level. Worth the price (which is top level too). A real experience, nothing but perfect. Menù of the house, just follow Gennaro Esposito, and you will not regret it.

What a beautiful place to spend a lazy sunday afternoon... The food is amazing, the service very personal and the location simply wonderful. From outside you hear the waves and the girls enjoying the beach. It reminds you emediately to the sound of the movie "Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot" by Jacques Tati. This place is a true gem.

The restaurant is just outstanding. The service is top notch, attentive and warm, formal to some degree yet not stiff. We visited with our kids 5 and 7 year old (they are well behaved) and had a wonderful experience. They tried some of the chef's creations but the waiter was very attentive to their needs and offered alternatives. The food... More

Gennaro has created something unique - in an amazing location. We opted for the Chef's menu - and spent over 4 wonderful hours in Enzo and his team's company. It was a evening of surprises, entertainment and to team and a kitchen operating at the top of their game.

Imagine you’re in a remote, peaceful little village (say, Vico Equense, Italy). Had dined in the elegant surroundings of the restaurant “Le Axidie”. Had a tasty combination of frutti di mare or fresh fish in the local ‘La Piazzetta’. Grilled gamberoni (with a spectacular view), on the terrace of Ristorante Cerasè. And ‘one summer evening’, you happen to enter into... More

Splendid menu, varied and entertaining. Great wines with helpful hints and suggestions from the friendly sommelier. Attentive and professional staff doing its utmost to keep guests happy (including serving two different tasting menues for a table of two). Location right on the beach in relaxing atmosphere. A third star would be fully deserved.

3 1/2 lunch! Brilliant. Gennaro created a tasting menu that featured do many local varieties of fish - all brilliantly presented. We chose lunch to avoid a 10:00pm drive back to Ravello. Smart choice. The view, the staff, and each and every course were beautiful. Should be 3 stars.
