“Very distinctive restaurant offering local food with a twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Lo Zafferano (saffron), a sister restaurant of the seafront Il Sciabecco , also in Ascea Marina in the Parco di Cilento, some 2 hours south of Naples and the Amalfi coast. Small dining room with oustide terrace on the main street in Ascea Marina (Corso Elea) offering great local food. We recently enjoyed a 6 course tasting menu (degustazione) for €23/person. The owner and head chef speak some English and the albergo is also tastefully furnished. Expect a lot of great local seafood cooked in imaginative ways also with local handmade pasta. Good selection of good local wines (not always easy to find in Southern Italy). Eat there at least 6 times a year, last time was Easter Saturday (un buon ristorante con una cucina speciale - carta degustazione , 6 corsi per €24, buoni vini). Grazie from Chris e Carol
