Although we stayed at LaPrimavera Hotel in 2008 I MUST tell you it was the absolute HIGHLIGHT of our trip. My husband and I were in Italy with a teenage niece and nephew. We had intended to drive the Almafi Coast beginning in the late afternoon. My husband pulled over and asked directions from a very interesting local man by the name of Tony Espisito. He cautioned us about driving the winding coastal road beginning so late, and besides that we'd miss the spectacular scenery. Tony sent us up the road to LaPrimavera and said to mention that Agnazio sent us. It was the beginning of the most fabulous dining experience we have ever had.
We sat by the windows overlooking the amazing Amalfi coastline. Jay told the owners Claudio and Franco to order for us. We didn't even look at the menu or wine list. What a treat! Mama was in the kitchen. She prepared old family favorites for us. Over the next hour and a half, Franco brought us a generous sampling of various (10) delectable appetizers served of course with a delicious house wine and hard crusted bread. When we didn't think we could eat another morsel, Claudio brought out the main course, whole fish baked under salt. He broke away the salt and served it splendidly with another of the excellent house wines. The ultimate three hour dining experience!
It was so enjoyable we did not want to leave. When Claudio said his establishment was also a hotel it capped the perfect evening. We went upstairs directly from the restaurant. What a gorgeous place! The roooms were beautiful and spotless! We slept heavenly. In the morning I opened the shutters and was thrilled to see kiwi growing within hand's reach.
When we departed Claudio treated us like family. He gave us a complimentary bottles of white and red wine from their vineyard. It was a spectacular experience. Our niece and nephew still talk about it today.
