The restaurant is everything one would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. Impeccable service, creatively prepared dishes, an unbelievably beautiful atmosphere and the price tag that goes with all of this. The chef surprise menu was a fair â¬90 for 4 courses and an extra â¬40 for wine accompaniment. My only complaint for the evening would be to mention the gate keeper who apparently screens incoming guests before allowing them to enter the premises. Upon parking the car, instead of being welcomed, I was asked several times for the name for the reservation to which he didnât confirm nor personally welcome us, but looked us up and down as if to ascertain if we were lying or deserved to be accepted and shown the way into the inner realm. I found his manner to be unfriendly, condescending and snobby, not a fitting greeting to such an elegant establishment. On the way to the bar he complained about cheeky Italians trying to get down to the beach without having a reservation which I can totally imagine, but vetting still isnât an appropriate greeting for a paying guest. I would unfortunately, actually hesitate to recommend this fabulous restaurant just based on the greeting alone at the gate as it still sits uneasily in my memories of the evening although everything else was perfect inside the restaurant. We also had problems leaving the restaurant as you need someone to operate the elevator to the parking with a key card so I guess once youâre in, you are expected to stay!

I hope the readers would agree with me that when you visit a restaurant of 2 Michelin stars you expect a refined atmosphere, a welcome and importantly a respect as a client.To these latter attributes I will give this restaurant zero. I have no idea what the food is like because we left or tried to leave after 3/4 minutes.1 we booked the restaurant for June in February and a day before our arrival the restaurant called the hotel for our reconfirmation.2 we were dropped by the taxi and noticed a bland person who looked at us almost suspiciously. A sort of 'if you are not attending the wedding or going downstairs to the pizza place, what are you doing here'? We proceeded to walk the 50 meters to the restaurant. There was a large rowdy noisy Italian wedding with tables messy with drinks half eaten food on plates and of course we had to look for someone to attend to us.3 when we found a certain lady who showed us to the terrace we tried to get the table furthest away from the wedding but of course as there was not a proper division between the two parts and the music was blurring, we just got up walked to the reception and asked for a taxi to take us back to the hotel. This was 8.15 after 10 minutes of waiting at the hotel entrance 50 meters away from the building and thankfully being spared the noise. A person who appeared to have some authority appeared and apologised. He said he understood our being upset and asked if he could offer us a pizza in the downstairs pizzeria of this hotel. Although well intentioned, I found this offer unbelievable. I replied that I considered it an insult to offer us a pizza and moreover to fail to inform us that there was a wedding. They could have asked us to cancel our booking with much regret on their part.He offered to book us into another highly reputable restaurant to which I agreed but by 8.45 as there was no transport or confirmation of a restaurant I asked to forget about it all and be driven to the hotel which is only 15 minutes away.After irate complaints by me that the taxi has not yet arrived (of course we repeatedly got the standard comment of it is arriving in 5 minutes) and an unsuccessful request that the hotel's car should take us back (the hotel's car " is only insured for very local trip"!!!) the taxi finally arrived at 9.15 meaning that we waited for 1 hour. On entering the taxi I asked when was the taxi ordered. The driver looked at his log and said at 8.57.I leave it to you the reader to decide whether such a dreadful service is worth visiting this establishment. The following evening we ate at another 2 star Michelin restaurant which was the total opposite experience. The restaurant name is Torre del Saracino the location is also in Vico Equense - a memorable experience. Don't miss it.Dear guest,I am sincerely sorry to read your negative review but above all I am terribly sorry that you had such a bad experience at the Grand Hotel Angiolieri and for this reason I feel duty bound to answer you personally as the owner of the facility.We opened the Grand Hotel Angiolieri more than 10 years ago and from the beginning we founded our work on warm and smiling welcome in order to try to make all our guests feel like at home and to try to convey at least part of the love and passion that we all put every day in our job . You can understand how much I'm sorry to read a negative review, especially when I realize that your disappointment might be due to some mistakes.We always pay close attention to our guests' opinions because they allow us to understand where we can improve. For these reasons I could not ignore your words.I would like to do a lot more than write some apologies, though I would like to try to erase this bad experience and to let you know the true hospitality spirit of the Grand Hotel Angiolieri, the one which has allowed us to leave beautiful memories to most of our guests.Hope you will give us this opportunity.Best regards.

We had the degustatione menu, excellent. Tastes were very original, for instance using lemon or other local aromatic flavors in unexpected places. We appreciated the entire menu, but some highlights are the following. Raw shrimp tartare with mandarine and green leaves of saladine, very fresh. Palamita (local blue fish, like tuna) with potato puree, lemon, chamomile; such a dish rang warning bells to our ears since overcooked tuna can be horrendous, but there it was soft and delicious. Fusili with raw tuna, lime, cipollini: in fact just a few big fusili (pasta) with the other ingredients placed on them. A mix of perfectly grilled fishes and calamar, perfectly cooked. Apricot baba, a new version of the traditional Neapolitan baba. As for wine, we had a Furore from the Amalfi area, dense and powerful (and inexpensive).

SaporÃ¬ - pizza e qualcos'altro is the new pizzeria located in Seiano. SaporÃ¬ is a place where pizza becomes experience, where simple ingredients are wisely used mixing ancient tradition and innovation.
My husband and I ate here during our stay at the Grand Hotel Angiolerri. We were starving after a day of hiking and no lunch. We each ordered a salmon salad and then I had a pizza with prosciutto, 2 cheeses, and tomatoes and my husband had a pizza with beef, onions, and a red wine reduction (pizza genovese). The salad was delicious and these were our 2nd favorite pizzas of our trip (top in Capri) â I ate the entire thing. My husband also ordered a glass of house red for 5E and thought it went great with pizza â very fruity and lots of tannins. Definitely recommend for a cheaper, casual meal.Dear amysN5635CA,Thanks so much for having shared your kind feedback with us, we are so glad you enjoyed your meal at SaporÃ¬.Hope to see you again!Best regards.

The Tavern Fifty offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere , Mediterranean cuisine with the territory reiterpretati pr... Altro
My boyfriend and I visited the restaurant on the last day of our holiday on the back of reading the amazing reviews on TA. We booked quite in advance using their Facebook site but there wasnât really any needs as there were plenty of tables available. They were very responsive however, if you do have any questions. The restaurant itself has a large inside area and a lovely courtyard out the back where you can sit in the open amongst lemon trees, running water and lots of other greenery. We chose to sit there, despite the fact it was ridiculous hot. It was a gorgeous setting for what was about to come. Iâm not sure there are enough superlatives for me to describe the food that was on offer. We went for the tasting menu âClose your eyesâ where the chef surprises you with five courses of deliciousness, Iâm assuming dependent on the fresh produce he can get his hands on at the time. Before the courses even began, we had small plates from the chef, breadsticks and fresh bread to snack on. From then on, everything we had was of the highest quality, from ingredients, to the cooking and the presentation. We navigated our way through courses including prawns, anchovies, turbot, chicken, complimented by cheeses, vegetables and fruits prepared in highly technical ways. Dessert too was delicious - peaches, chocolate, cinnamon, cream, and everything else. Portions are generous for a tasting menu, and the five courses will leave you completely full. All for 45euros a head!! We could hardly believe it. Wine was also fabulous, local and cheap. In London, where I live, youâd be looking at over Â£300 at least for two tasting menus, three glasses of wine and a beer. The value is incredible. And finally, the staff. All of them were a delight, spoke perfect English, polite and helpful, not trying to push you to eat faster/drink more/spend more. They are a credit to the restaurant. All in all, I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. If you are in the area you will not have a better meal in many places. Go!

We were at Villa Clermont for a family member's wedding. What a gorgeous place! The view from the terrace of Sorrento coastline was breath taking. The facility was very nice. The food as excellent. They kept bringing various courses. This is a beautiful place and should be considered by anyone wanting to get married in Italy.

The Blu Stone Restaurant is a gourmet restaurant overlooking a beautiful terrace on the Gulf of Naples. Here you can make a unique and unforgettable culinary experience.
We stayed in a nearby hotel for 2 weeks and ate here three times. You can expect to pay about 50 euros each for a meal with wine: but it is worth every cent. My wife, an excellent cook and confirmed vegetarian, is understandably hypercritical of many restaurants that do not meet her high standards. But she declared that the Blu Stone served the best vegetarian dishes she has ever tasted! I also eat fish and the chef here is a true artist: we ate different dishes on every occasion and were disappointed with none. The place hardly needs our recommendation as it is obviously celebrated along this coast as many local Italians who have money are regular customers. The setting in the evening - watching the sun set over the Bay of Naples - is very attractive. But it is that food that most attracts us.

We were excited to visit this restaurant having done our research prior to staying in Vico. Keeping this review as succinct as possible, the food itself was good. Not the best meal we had in Italy, but certainly not bad. Iâd give the restaurant a three out of five for food. When we ordered our meal we noted on the menu that this establishment, like many, offers a fixed price menu (starter, main and dessert etc) or a la carte. From memory the fixed price meal we chose was approx â¬45 euro per person. We specifically asked the waitress about this, asked what is and what is not included etc and everything was very clear. When we ordered we again referred to the fixed price offer and ordered our starter, main and dessert. At the end of the meal the waitress handed us our bill and I noted we had been charged the a la carte prices for the individual dishes, far more expensive than the set menu price. Without mentioning a single word, the waitress promptly returned, profusely apologising saying âshe had made a mistake and explained she had incorrectly charged the individual prices rather than the set menu offer.She went away and 5 minutes later, the head chef and owner, Fabianâs Scarica, tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to accompany her to a room at the back of the restaurant near the garden area. Once there she stated she could see no problem with the bill! She then asked me to âmeet her in the middleâ and pay a price in between the a la carte cost and the fixed price. I couldnât believe my ears! I explained that I didnât appreciate her offer and told her Iâd pay the fixed price plus drinks. She reluctantly agreed and the matter was closed.Itâs a great shame that meal ended in this way. I am usually happy to give establishments the benefit of doubt but looking back on this, there really is no excuse for trying to charge more.I would add that we whilst thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Vico and Naples we found the number of times that restaurants and shops âaccidentallyâ over charged us or âaccidentallyâ short changed us, was quite extraordinary. Beyond coincidence maybe?Dear Invictus,Iâm Fabiana, and I remember you and your family at 4th table in my garden on august of this year.I have just a problem... I donât remember what you explain in your text as: I tapped you on shoulder... and other words. So sorry.My english isnât perfect, and maybe there was a misunderstanding. I asked for your attention In private for explain, far from other people, that you had eat as you chose a la carte, but you will pay as fix menu. Now weâre on October, and i was really unhappy to read this review, because that evening my maÃ®tresse was really mortified with you and with me,(Because she take an order a la carte) I Tought that was any problems, and today this bad bad news. (And I think ... it was my fault for my English) I hope you will change your memories about us, And youâll can understand the error at the and of your dinner.So sorry again

It's not everyday that one goes to 2 star Michelin restaurants but Chef Gennaro Esposito and his fine staff created an experience that we will long remember. We were greeted in a beautiful ancient tower where the reception area is suitated. The selection of amuse bouches was as creative as it was delicious. So was the champagne. We were invited to visit the impressive wine cellar and then the spotless, buzzing, kitchen (it seemed all of the sous chefs were working with tweezers to decorate the plates) before we were seated in the stunning dining room. I don't remember how many courses we ordered but it seemed that between course there we many "surprises" - each one as beautiful as it was delicious. We paired our meal with local white wines at the sommelier's recommendation and loved them all.In addition to exquisite food, the dishes they were served on were pieces of art....each one different and designed with a specific type of food in mind. I asked our superb waiter about them and he proudly explained that chef Gennaro takes pride not only in his food but in its presentation. He personally consults with a ceramic artist who hand makes each plate and dish!!! Truly a lovely experience.NB - Check out the online menu before reserving...it's an expensive treat.
