Acciaroli is the gem of Cilento, except for its restaurants which mostly left the path of local traditions to embrace a sort of posh modern-style.
"Al Sentiero" lays on the hills, a 10min drive from the beach, but you can't miss it.
Its cuisine is firmly rooted in the centennial tradion of this area, it uses mostly ingredients from their organic farm, included the goats' milk turned into a special cheese.
Among everything, don't miss its "antipasti", pasta dishes and the home made dessert.
The cavatelli pasta (a sort of small local "gnocchi") is hand made daily, one by one...nowadays is a privilege to eat them!
The "al sentiero" (whip cream and chocolate) cake is a godsend. Maybe coccoa is one the few ingredients not from the farm surrounding the restaurant.
Expect no frills and don't rush, just sit down and eat as in a local family on sunday.
At night, in the summer, the cool breeze makes this place even more enjoyable.
This small restaurant is a landmark for its capacity of preserving traditions and the family-style.
Its prices are absolutely low, every meal is great value deal.
